[ViMH] Prompt #1
Prompt #1: Answer the question: "Who are you?"
That's a long story. A very long one. One that causes certain Ozians headaches, or so I'm told.
My name is Nessarose Thropp, the former Eminent Thropp, otherwise known as... the Wicked Witch of the East.
Yes, the one that the house dropped on. You go, farm girl, stealing a crippled woman's shoes! The nerve of some people, honestly...
I'm the sister everyone overlooked, because of this... this contraption, this hideous chair with wheels. That, and the braces on my legs.
Nobody wants to love the crippled girl, although she desperately pines for that love.
I didn't want to be fussed over, to have to rely on everybody. I wanted to be able to walk... and Elphaba, after so long, gave me that gift - she cast a spell on my shoes, those wondrous silver slippers, and turned them into the ruby slippers... slippers that gave me the ability to walk.
And now that they're gone, I can't walk. They were supposedly destroyed by that idiotic farm girl... damn her.
Every night, I pray to the Unnamed God that my sister might find me, or even that Glinda would help me. I pray that Boq be returned to me, so that I might atone for my sins against him.
...But not even the Unnamed God can create miracles such as those.
