OK, Here is how I see it unfolding…
Three of the four Princess’s sit at a poker table in the forest at the 7 dwarves house. The 7 dwarf’s place, since it most likely that Snow “White” Charming still isn’t allowed to wander off alone, She needs to be chaperoned after the 2nd divorce from her 1st husbands brother Dale Charming.
–Belle & Mulan have become great friends after Belle had called Mulan up to help her clean up some broken dishes & furniture when Belle confronted her husband after he came home late one night smelling of alcohol, with strange green colored lipstick on his collar. The two girls swear that Belle’s husband had felt terrible about what he did and he signed everything over to Belle… He didn’t even take anything with him, He only left a signed letter saying “I am going to wander the earth in disguise until I can do enough good deeds to right my wrongs against my wife Belle, And I will never tell her where I am. Or try to see her again. So don’t bother to look for me!”
– Mulan moved in with Belle shortly After “The cleaning of Belle’s castle” incident, Mostly due to the Chinese authorities asking Mulan to “leave China and never return” It seems Mulan & her Late husband were involved in some insider trading of Purple cushions that were “borrowed” from a famous American rapper. But, copy right infringements, and questionable stock purchasing, had left her husband slain by Pirates while collecting their purple booty’s cushions.
–So Belle & Mulan arrived together. The three Ladies have been shooting the breeze about their new lives, and sipping champagne that tasted just like cherry cola, “SEE/OH/EL/AYE. cola.”. All while waiting for Ariel to arrive. Ariel is still known to be tardy, And understandably so since her husband drowned while watching the kids.
–Finally Ariel arrived! This time by helicopter Toting a finely made aquarium secured in a net underneath the whirling blades of the machine. The glass tank was etched in Silver with Green emeralds in the shapes of starfish on every corner. The tank was filled with sea water and had what appeared to be a hand carved whale bones fashioned into a Throne. Wisps of Green colored the glass walls. Once the tank was moved inside, the girls sat down to play poker. And, After several hands the girls were still chattering on about themselves with tales of “Divorce, or “Widowed”, or “I don’t know where he wandered off to” And in general, Just catching up from the last year of events.
–Then Mulan raises the bet into Snow for about 5 times the blind, Snow seems surprised and says to Mulan " You aren’t trying to knock me out of the game are you?” Mulan replies “of course not sweety” “I just have to go to the little princess’ room and wanted you to have some of my chips in case I take to long” Mulan also adds without making eye contact “I want you to still be playing when I get back Hun” Mulan smiled and said “I only have 2- 7 off suit so you will easily win.” Snow says. “Oh, ok, You are so sweet Mulan” Then Snow calls with all of her chips and points down the hall to Mulan. Mulan asks “what are you Pointing at?” “The bathroom” Snow reply’s “You fell for that again.!!?” Says Mulan, as she slides her chips to the middle and flips over a pair of kings. “Drat, you got me again Mulan” says Snow “Would you Girls like a lemonade or something to drink? Dinner is still about an hour away” The ladies all place their drink orders & Snow scurries to fill them. When Snow leaves the room Ariel scold’s Mulan Saying “Why do you always do that to her?” “Pipe down fish breath” snaps Mulan. Belle giggles and says “don’t make us put, oh, we’ll call it “mud” in your tank again this year, remember how long the cleaners took last time!” The girls focused back to the game, while Snow comes & goes for the next two hours bringing food & drink for the Bantering Crows of Kings. Shortly after dark Ariel sees her hand of red aces , she can hardly keep her excitement from causing digestive gasses, It was like she was lactose intolerant and just ate a block of cheese, So as she puts in 3 times the blind Ariel’s tank of water looks like someone had dropped a case of Alka-Seltzer into it. The two girls pretend they don’t notice Ariel’s obvious “tell”, Belle & Mulan make small talk about the meal they shared right after “The big clean up” of broken dishes & furniture earlier that year, “That meat was amazing” Mulan said “Yeah nothing better than Elk meat” Belle replied “I thought you told me it was wild boar?” questioned Mulan, “Oh yeah you’re right” Belle said quickly. Then both girls call Ariel’s raise. The tank starts to overflow with water and bubbly foam. Then the flop of 7, 8, 9, all clubs. Ariel quickly pushes all-in. Mulan folds her Q-4:diamonds: of diamonds, and Belle quickly calls showing her J-6:clubs: of clubs! The turn 4:heart: and river J:diamonds: then Ariel’s tank went calm. Belle smiled and said “Their isn’t a beast alive that can play the ace of “hearts” on me!” Frustrated, Ariel asked “How do you girls always take me and Snow out each year?” “And always the same order?” Belle & Mulan shrug simultaneously.
–Now the “heads up” part of the story!–
-Mulan & Belle square off with roughly the same amount of chips. A Battle for the bragging rights of all the Princesses is on the line… The 2 girls knuckled down and play some incredible poker! They call, They folded, They raised & re-raised. They bluffed, They trapped. Back and forth it went. They played until they were both on the verge of collapse.
-Snow was sound asleep on an overstuffed chair near the dwarf’s hallway, And with the sounds of snores, it echoed like 100 chain saws in full “kill a redwood mode” coming from just 7 of these little guys. Ariel too was fast asleep in her aquarium, sprawled out on her throne, And every so often these little bursts of bubbles would make their way to the surface and pop softly like firecrackers in a soda bottle.
-Then Mulan gets pocket aces A A and Belle gets K J The girls size each other up and Mulan make a 6X raise, Belle thinks for a moment then calls. The flop comes A 9 Q Mulan takes no time and quickly pushes all her chips to the middle “ALL in” She says. Belle take a pause, counts her outs, sees all her possibility’s and calls…
Mulan’s A A vs. K J of Belle then the turn card 10 both girls are on their feet, the room was graveyard silent, They both looked around and all seven of those short, cute, old, smelly men, were lined up with their noses resting on the table and eyes peering over the edge still in their nightcaps and gowns. Snow was standing next to the table with a trey of steaming hot chocolate, Each with a giant marshmallow poking up out of it’s cup. Ariel too was awake, And was half way out of the water trying to get a good view for the last card. Dripping puddles onto the floor from her clam shells! (for the boy readers) Then the river card, An A Mulan got so excited, the 4th A had come out! What a lovely day! What a lovely hand! What a lovely moment! Everything was beautiful! She had 4 of a kind A’s Then, unable to contain herself she started bouncing up and down, And she whispered, I won! I finally beat her, Then again she said it, only a bit louder, I won! I finally beat her, again only a little louder, then again and again until she was screaming it “I WON I FINALLY BEAT HER!!!” Belle was standing next to her, and slowly leaned in close to Mulan & asked “Are you ok Mulan?” Mulan still jumping & shouting said “Yes I’m wonderful” “Why?” Belle smiled faintly and asked “Well, who did you finally beat?” Mulan, slowing down her bounce a bit and lowering her voice a little, said “You, I finally beat you” Each bounce not quite as high as previous one, and as she looked around at everyone and over to the cards, she started feeling a bit faint, and she could feel the energy drain from her body, until her bounce wasn’t doing anything more than flexing her kneecaps at best. Then like someone had kicked her in the ovary’s, Her breath became very labored. At that moment she saw Belle’s Hand was pretty good too
A K Q J 10 to her A A A A
Mulan, leans over to Belle and said “Very nice hand” then she whispers “Your lipstick is about faded off, you might check to see if Ariel has some you can borrow She’s such a Boar”
Should there be a part two?/?
OH.! & My answer is Belle
