Title: Ballerina
Genre: General
Rating: PG
Summary: Jenny lost herself long ago, but she wants to be a good companion to her husband anyway.

She opens the jewelry box, newly wound, and hears the song.

"Beautiful dreamer..." she whispers as the box plays the song, and the ballerina dances for her. She smiles.

Jenny frowns as the songs ends mid-way. She closes the lid, and winds it again, hope the song is the same as before. She peeks through the crack of the lid as she opens it slowly. The ballerina pops-up and the song begins. Jenny giggles and claps her hands.

"Come on, Jenny, time for bed," her husband, Francis says. Jenny whines, but obediently gets up and hops in their bed. She looks longingly at her rabbit across the room where she left it.

"You want, Miss Bunny, right?" Francis asks.

Jenny nods her head, and soon Miss Bunny is in her arms again. Francis kisses her head and says, “I'll be to bed in about half an hour, okay?”

Jenny smiles and snuggles down in the covers. Francis smiles at her and turns off the light and heads down the hall.

Miss Bunny is now propped up on the pillow beside Jenny.

"Hey, Bunny," Jenny whispers. "I want you to know something. Francis is mine, and I'm his. I have to be a good wife even if I lost my grown-up self long time ago. I still don't understand what a wife is, other than a really good friend. And that's what I'll be. His best friend...Yes, Miss Bunny, I'm still your friend too."

Jenny smiles happily and goes to sleep.

Downstairs, Francis is crying his eyes out, not knowing that his wife is going to try her hardest to be a loving companion. If he only knew.

I actually regress from time to time, but it's not full blown like the story. I do when I'm stressed-out or upset. :) It's a psychological thing and it inspired me to write this. :D
