The Queen of Shattered Hearts Once upon a time, in the land of Pim, there was a young girl named Aria. Her parents had been killed in the Deathly Time, when the Twin Kings, Kennel and Twit, fought for the High Throne. So she was all alone until a young prostitute named Juliamma came to her and told her not to fret. Juliamma would take care of Aria. So for the rest of her life, Aria was told by the other prostitutes that she was only worth the highest amount of money. And Aria believed it. So she was nothing more than a toy to the rest of Pim. She stood at the intersection of Whine and Fleet and waited for a young man or woman to pass by and offer her a high price. But on day, she met Tylan, a young man who happened to be on his way to the bakery. He tried to ask Aria for directions, but she misread the meaning and thought he wanted a night. But when he said he didn’t want anything, she was troubled. Aria was a very beautiful person and everyone wanted her. Everyone save Tylan. So she fell in love with this man. And he, with her. And she left her friends and “family” and went with him. They loved each other until he proposed. And she said yes. They were wed and they lived happily for a year. But one day, after coming home from the church, where she confessed her sins, she saw him with two other women. She was devastated. So she devised plan. She caught one of the women by herself and killed her. She spilled the woman’s blood on the floor and collected the body and baked a small part of it into a large pastry. She then proceeded to feed it to Tylan, who ate it and loved its taste and texture. So every day, Aria would take a little piece of the woman and feed it to her husband, until the woman was all gone. Then Aria went to him and told him the truth. He vomited upon the floor and she slit his throat. He had made her believe that she was in love, when it had all been a game to him. So in rage and insanity she took his body and hid it beneath the floorboards of his house. And when the other woman came to visit, Aria told her that the man wasn’t there anymore. So the woman left in a dither and Aria followed. She followed until she came upon the woman’s house. There she tore out the heart of the woman and burned it. After this Aria went completely crazy. The neighbors complained of her and began to suspect her of evil. So they reported her to the authorities and they took her to the Funny Farm where all the crazies go. And after the police scoured her house, they found the corpse. The people of Pim were horrified beyond anything and found it fit to kill the woman. So in order to purge her evil soul they decided to burn her. So they made a great bonfire and were about to throw her in when she laughed and screamed,” I am the Queen of Shattered Hearts! My heart is in pieces and so I cannot die if it lies broken!” With that she threw herself into the flames with a laugh. Aria burned that day but if you listen in the great Woods of Pim, you can hear the silent laughter of the Queen of Shattered Hearts. The End
