Pretty Girl Rock, by Keri Hilson (word count 787)

I can do the pretty girl rock, rock
Rock to the pretty girl rock, rock, rock
Now, what’s your name?

And still she walked with her head held high, looking every bit like a princess. Regardless of the thick metal chains devouring her slender wrists. Regardless of the guards, an entire dozen of the very best LEPrecon fairies, all just for her.  Regardless of the fact that this was her trial, and she was almost certainly guilty. Regardless of the centuries of prison that she would have to endure.

My name is Opal, I’m so very
Fly oh my, it’s a little bit scary
Boys wanna marry, looking at my deri
Aye, you can stare, but if you touch it, then I’ma bury

Opal batted her eyelashes at the horde hovering in front of the courtroom, feeling a twinge of pleasure at the fact that a cute male elf had just let go of his girlfriend’s hand to stare, dumbstruck, at Opal. The girlfriend’s jaw dropped. So did Opal’s. Was that…Holly Short? Oh well. Probably just her imagination.

Pretty as a picture sweeter than a swisher
Mad ’cause I’m cuter than the girl that is with ya
I can talk about it ’cause I know that I’m pretty
If you know it too, then ladies sing it with me

As she strutted into the courtroom, Opal eyed the jury with a smirk on her face. She could always count on an occasional love struck sprite to stand up for her.  Opal was, after all, drop-dead gorgeous.

All eyes on me when I walk in
No question that this girl’s a 10
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful

Crowds of fairies in the courtroom were there too, to mock her, no less. Gnomes booed, elves stuck out their feet to make her stumble, goblins hissed, and dwarves farted. Whatever. They just hated her because she was beautiful. They were all ugly, and jealous, too.

My walk, my talk, the way I dress
It’s not my fault, so please don’t trip
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful

Opal caught a glimpse of a familiar face. Two familiar faces, actually. The elfin boyfriend and jealous girlfriend. Trouble Kelp and Holly Short. Hah. So it was her.

If you’re looking for me, you can catch me
Cameras flashing, daddy’s turned his head as soon as I passed him
Girls think I’m conceited ’cause I know I’m attractive
Don’t worry about what I think, why don’t you ask him?

Daddy was there too, his eyes focused on her, only on his Opal. Over the racket of the crowd, she heard his voice crack, as his whispered repeatedly, “Opal…”  After all that she had done to him, he still loved his daughter.  Pridefully, she tossed her head at him.

It was the final straw. His love melted into anger, hatred, and something unrecognizable. The look on Daddy’s face mirrored the look on Holly’s. They all hated her.

Get yourself together, don’t hate
(Don’t do it)
Jealous is the ugliest trait
(Oh, don’t do it)
I can talk about it ’cause I know that I’m pretty
If you know it too, then ladies sing it with me

The voices of the jury, the crowd, the judge, they all slurred together in one dull incessant roar. Who cared whether she tried to take over the world?

Anyways, world domination was going to be hers, someday. So why did it even matter? They should be more interested in her shimmering blue dress, picked especially for the occasion. And her absolutely perfect eyeliner, that made her beautiful chocolate eyes look even more stunning than usual.

Doing the pretty girl rock, rock, rock
Do the pretty girl rock, rock, rock
Do the pretty girl rock, rock, rock
Do the pretty girl rock, rock

Opal was lost in a wave of vanity, admiring her reflection in the windows.  That dress really did look fabulous on her…

She was jerked back in reality as the judge, a wrinkled old gremlin, pounded his gavel. BANG!

“Order! We have decided. Miss Koboi, you are…”

Opal squeezed her eyes shut. It wasn’t fair. She was just going to be sent to prison because they were all jealous, jealous of how pretty she was, jealous that she was simply so much better than they were.

But, maybe.

Maybe she could still get out of this mess. Maybe there was still a glimmer of hope. Maybe, just maybe…

My walk, my talk, the way I dress
It’s not my fault so please don’t trip
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful

“Guilty.”

Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful…

  7. Nice and cute. I wouldn’t’ve thought of using Pretty Girl Rock, but I’ve actually never heard the song. Just my tone-deaf friend singing it. She makes it sound a whole lot worse XD.

    I liked the way you made their characters and how you incorporated the song in it.

    Thanks! Yeah…my science teacher showed the song to our class one day, and it was stuck in my head for the entire day, so that’s kinda why I used it XD
