What if objects could tell stories? - Part 2


Good evening darling! Do you want some tea with your slice of cheesecake? Come sit beside me because I’m going to yarn you quite an incredible story.

It was during a year like the others, and war was at its apogee. I love to dance on top of centimeters of paper. I loved to go dancing in front of kids that were shouting with enthusiasm. I loved to put on my pink ballerinas and then my white tutu, and then put on my hair a freshly picked rose. I danced so much that one day I broke my mine. It was horrifying, I felt like my life was worthless, so I fainted. I woke up 21 years later with a brand-new mine that was hard as a rock and sharpened like a knife. I was happy. Dancing again, but this time, on meters of paper without interruption. After a few years, the inevitable happened. I broke my leg a second time, but unfortunately, no one ever came to fix me. All of this because of some rebellious allies.
