A True Story (Short Story Slam Week 3, Poetry Potluck Week 39, ABC Wednesday on V)

Orphaned at a young age,

Kevin lived with Robin, a girl his parents helped to engage.

Belittling Kevin’s poeverty status,

Robin is determined to marry someone rich and powerful,

So, Kevin is isolated in a study near Bluebell Lake, feeling painful.


Kevin has turned into a handsome scholar all girls would adore,

He longs to see Robin, but fails to get the chance,

Thus loneliness drives him to the lake shore,

Where he reciites poetry to the fish that prance.


A carp spirit enjoys listening to Kevin’s brilliant words ever since,

She decides to turn into human form to meet her prince,

Dressed up exactly like Robin,

She paid him a visit and her beauty melted Kevin.


During a new year’s celebration,

Robin’s family saw something terrifying:

Kevin and “Robin” act like a married pair,

How can Robin disgrace her family with such unapproved love affair.


What Robin’s parents did not know about this lifeful storm,

is that “Robin” is actually the carp spirit’s human form:

Now they have two daughters to identify,

Sorrow hits them like swallowing a dead fly.


Both Robin claim to be true,

But only one Robin cares about Kevin, that’s the clue.

The case is reported to the King,

An official is sent to clear up everything.


Fake “Robin” is forgiven for her fault,

And given permission to remain human to marry Kevin as a result;

True Robin regrets what she has done,

She becomes friend of Kevin and his wife, and they have fun.
