Once upon a time, there was a little girl, sweet and plump and innocent like a rabbit. Bunny, they called her.
One day, Bunny was skipping through the forest when she came upon a giant purple butterfly. The butterfly was glistening with ruby red designs and silvery sparkles and blue velvet swirls. The butterfly had a beautiful face, wise and grand, with long eyelashes.
"What brings you to the forest?" asked the butterfly, towering over Bunny. The butterfly was so pretty, but it made Bunny's stomach ache.
"I, um.... I was just going to gather some daisies." Bunny answered meekly.
"Daisies, be damned! That, you shall not do," said the butterfly. And it lifted its thin insect legs and wrapped Bunny so tightly, she couldn't breathe.
"Help!" Bunny wheezed. "You are suffocating me!"
The butterfly laughed a low demonic laugh, and Bunny felt the butterfly stick it's long spiky tongue all the way into Bunny's ear until her eardrum popped. The tongue wiggled and pricked and dug deeper into Bunny's ear, and Bunny would have screamed, but the butterfly's grip was too strong.
Just then, a splendid white unicorn galloped upon the two. Bunny looked at the unicorn with joy and relief. He will help me, she thought.
But, when she looked into the unicorn's eyes, she saw they were red, with the irises sideways, like a goat. Like the devil. And, the unicorn smiled a crooked smile and opened his mouth and vomited long black snakes that slithered and writhed toward Bunny.
The butterfly released Bunny and flew high into the sky, floating on a wind current. Bunny had no time to wonder what to do next. She ran for the nearest tree and scrambled up as fast as she could.
The snakes came to the tree and bore a giant hole, all in unison, into the dirt around the tree, through the tree's roots and out the other side. In less than no time, the tree began to tilt and fall. Bunny climbed higher and hung on for dear life, but the tree was going to go all the way over. And with a loud crash, it landed.
Bunny flew out of the tree onto the unicorn's back, grabbing onto the white fur of its neck. The unicorn reared and sprang forward, plunging through the woods, galloping past tree after tree, nearly missing many branches.
Bunny wanted to jump off, but the unicorn was too fast. "Where are you taking me?" she yelled, with the wind in her ear.
"Wherever you want!," the unicorn said, with a laugh, turning its neck and glancing back. Its face had turned black and its red eyes shown like fire. It had a black tongue hanging out of its mouth.
Bunny didn't want to go anywhere with the unicorn. She wanted off the unicorn's back. She began looking for a branch she could jump onto to make her escape. Bunny's head was bobbing from the speed and her neck was snapping with each jolting jump the unicorn made. She was losing her grip.
Just in time, Bunny saw a branch that might work. She grabbed on and the unicorn roared ahead, not even aware that Bunny had escaped. Bunny heaved herself up onto the branch and proceeded to climb as high as she could, higher and higher into the tallest pine she'd ever seen. At last she reached the top.
As Bunny stuck her head up through the top cluster of branches, she came face-to-face with the giant butterfly, its evil grin and long pointy tongue aimed in Bunny's direction.
"So glad you could make it," the butterfly said.
