Teaser from the WIP - "Someday My Prince Will Come"

It may be obvious from the title what the premise of the story is...

On her daily phone call, her mother said, "You lucky, lucky girl!"

Betty tried to interject something but her mother went on. "I mean, you're all promised that our prince will come some day, but most of them seem to get lost in transit. I don't know anyone who's actually gotten one."

"Mom," Betty said. "What do you mean, we're all promised one? Who does the promising?"

There was a brief silence on the other end of the line. "Well," her mother finally said, "I guess I don't really know. The world? God? Yes, that's probably it. God promises if we're good, someday our prince will come."

"I think you're confusing God and fairy tales," Betty told her.
