Ten years ago she was released; at the same time, a poet was unleashed. Fireblossom toiled away at her keyboard, creating a poetic work of art every day. Or so she led us to believe...
Hundreds of people--from near and far--followed her trail of words. People drooled over her poems, wondering how one person could give birth to a work of art every day.
But in reality, it wasn't Fireblossom writing the poems. In her palace called "Wordgarden" she had dozens of bottles, all lined up in rows. In each bottle was a spirit; every day one of the genies was given their freedom for the day. The price of a day out of their prison? A mind-blowing poem...
So even though Fireblossom's minions were responsible for the incredible poem every day--and not Fireblossom (after all, what mortal could create a poem like this every single day?), it was still marvelous reading, so her followers kept coming back to read the latest poem...

In another corner of the universe was another writer named Lisa Ricard Claro. A perky smile. A wrinkle-free face. Having lots of talent and energy, her writing credits piled up.
Trying to appear older and more "mature," she created the ruse that she has grown children.
Her followers were aghast! Where were the Samsonites that were supposed to be under her eyes? Why were her breasts not resting on her poochy belly? Where was the red, sweaty face---the sign of constant hot flashes?
It was discovered that her children were rented. After many experts measured her waistline, it was proclaimed she had never given birth. Lisa was "outed" by AARP, who declared her age closer to 30 than 50. In spite of her lies, her followers did not abandon her. After all, a good writer is a good writer... And who can resist a well-crafted phrase?
And yet in another faraway land was Pearl. She, too made the mistake of Lisa and claimed to have a grown man-boy. Again, AARP brought in their experts. It was found that Pearl was closer to 30 than 50. She had paid the same rental company for her "child." A bunch of female bloggers, all of them sporting mustaches and cellulite, threw rocks at her in protest. But since Pearl is used to running after people who deface the bus stops, she avoided getting hit.
But then PETA stepped in. It seems that Pearl does not write her blogs. The real talent behind her blog is Dolly Gee Squeekers. Dolly got herself into a "minimeowzer" so her rolls of fat did not show, called for a press conference and claimed she was being underfed and overworked.

"Being tied to thith computer for eight hourth every day ith dethpicable!" Dolly cried. PETA is working on what would be an appropriate sentence for Pearl.
And the ending to this fairy tale? Once the truth was unveiled, everyone lived happily ever...And their happiness will continue as long as these three powerful bloggers do not unite. Because if their powers do join to become one super-power, the world will never be the same...
