Mountain Girls

You would expect that when someone is running through a dense brush, you would hear the rustling of the leaves. But that was not the case with Pocahontas. She glided through the most fragile twigs and even if your ear was next to their bark, you would never hear them break.

When Pocahontas has reached her destination, she peered through the crisp leaves of the bush. She saw a white skin with black hair singing in some unknown language to a rabbit. Suddenly, Pocahontas smelled alcohol. She whirled around to see the Medicine Manís spirit floating a foot in the air in front of her.

"My child," he spook in a almost a drunk state of mind which was not surprising because ever since the white men came to their tribe and sold them brandy, the Medicine Man had been a little weird. "I give you the power to speak all the languages of the forest."

With that the medicine man disappeared with a puff of yellow pokka-dotted smoke. There standing in his place was another white skin, but this time, with blonde hair. The bottom of her skirt was torn and brown with dirt.

"Iím sorry to have startled you, my dear, but have you seen Snow White?" Her voice was soft and kind mixed with some distress, as though she had been through a lot.

Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?

Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Sang a voice in Pocahontasí head.

"Po-ca-hon-tas," Pocahontas said her name in the new language slowly, not trusting her own voice.

"Bless you," said the blonde hair.

With her eyes closed Pocahontas processed these words in her head. Her eyes bulged open when she understood their meaning.

"I didnít sneeze," Pocahontas was irritated by the blondeís stupidity. "My name is Pocahontas." She watched the blonde hairís face turn red with embarrassment.

"Oh my goodness, Iím ever so sorry, Pocahontas. My name is Cinderella. Have you seen Snow White?"

Pocahontas pointed her tan finger through the bush. Cinderella ran right through it to stand next to Snow White. They stood frozen side by side.

"Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah," Cinderella and Snow White screamed in unison. There sitting in front of them was a giant black bear eating the rabbit Snow White had been singing to.

Both of the girls fainted on the spot, landing with a lump in the dirt, sending even more dirt flying in the air.

"What a bunch of girls," Pocahontas muttered as she sat down to wait for the dust to clear.
