Jasmine faces more
tragic events than the average teen. Her overworked mother,
Bev, doesn’t see her enough, and visiting her dad, “Slip”,
often makes things worse. Even Jasmine’s deepening relationship
with her boyfriend Jason can’t lift her spirits enough,
and depression seeps in.
The Queen relishes the descent into misery, and she wants
Jasmine. The Queen hunts the lonely and dejected, pulling
victims into her Kingdom. Her bony hand is invisible while
covering Jasmine’s mouth, the stench of her world's
black sludge and the eerie sound of her voice, only penetrates
the minds of her loyal subjects.
Family and friends can’t see the Queen, but they are
worried as they watch Jasmine drift even further out of reach.
...And closer to the Queen.
