    Scarlett - Glory Story

    There once was a pet named Scarlett.
    She set forth on a journey to become a starlet.
    Within the Maple world, she chose first chose Khaini.
    She began to explore. Everything was so shiny.
    Every day, she grinded away, questing.
    No matter how hard it got, she kept going, without resting.
    As days, weeks, months passed, she never gave up,
    Scarlett did this, in order to save up.
    Mesos were the key in order to becoming famous.
    Her fans were cheering her on, “please entertain us!”
    Day by day, she kept farming.
    “Keep going, keep going!”, they said – they found her so charming.
    Suddenly, there was a shift, and Khaini merged with Broa.
    There were more people in every map, even in Showa.
    However, from Broa, there was another big star.
    Her now biggest rival, he was more popular by far!
    Scarlett had heard that his name was Squishy
    However, she found something fishy.
    Turns out, Squishy was a domesticated pink bean.
    “This cannot be!” she yelled – she was supposed to be queen.
    The competition was fierce, Squishy did not fight fair.
    He yelled at her, “Try me if you dare!”
    Scarlett was taken aback, for she did not see this coming
    She saw his actions and thought to herself, “oh, how unbecoming”.
    She decided to fight back since she wasn't a coward.
    However, she did not feel very empowered.
    The fans saw all the ugliness and there was a decline in their popularity.
    That is when both Scarlett and Squishy both had a moment of clarity.
    Squishy said, “I’m sorry, I did not mean to cause a scene.
    What I did, I realized, was very mean!”
    “All is well,” Scarlett replied, “I hope we can be friends.”
    And thus, Scarlett and Squishy had made amends.
    I hope you enjoyed this tale of Scarlett and didn’t find it too corny,
    If you did, then please just ignore me.
    It had to be shared, for it was a terrific story,
    Where Scarlett, the great star, has risen to her Glory.
