Beauty and the Beast Reimagined

Ladies, gentlemen and non-binaries, gather around and listen closely, for I am about to tell you the tale of the modern-day "Beauty and the Beast."

Once upon a time, in a land of dating apps, swiping left and ghosting, there was a woman named "Becky who will represent the Beauty." Bex was a knockout, a total 10/10. She had the looks, the brains, and the personality to match. She was the complete package, but alas, she couldn't seem to find a prince charming to sweep her off her feet.

She lived in a quaint little cottage with her family, who were all a bit plain and unremarkable (let's just say they were lucky to have Becky around to spruce up the gene pool).

The "Beast - Tyler," a man who was... well, let's just say he had a few rough edges. He was a bit socially awkward, had terrible fashion sense, and let's not even get started on his hygiene. But, like Bex, he also had a heart of gold. He was just looking for someone to understand him and love him for who he was.

Despite their initial reservations, Beauty and the Beast decided to give it a shot and they embarked on a journey of dating. They went on adventures, walked her Welsh Corgies in the woods, and got to know each other on a deeper level. And, like all banal fairy tales, they soon fell in love.

But, this being the modern era, the story doesn't quite end there. You see, Bex and Tyler realized that sometimes, love just isn't enough. They needed to have compatible Netflix preferences, matching Instagram aesthetics, same amount of followers and the same taste in memes.

So, they decided to call it quits. But, like all good millennials, they remained friends and occasionally slide into each other's DMs ( for older folks it means - direct messaging.) Who knows? Maybe one day they'll give it another shot.

The moral of the story, dear reader, is that true love isn't always easy. It takes work, compromise, and a mutual love for avocado toast and Oat Milk Barista Latte. So, don't give up on your quest for the perfect match, even if they're not quite the prince or princess you envisioned. Love comes in all shapes, sizes, and Netflix preferences.

And here is my abstract interpretation of the modern day fairy tail “Beauty and the Beast”
