Hi, I’m Betty. The cloud who holds up the castle. You know what though? I can’t stand it, I have to hold up a couple of Giants and a huge castle. My work is way too demanding! Okay, so I’m supposed to be a foggy, moist, lightweight cloud. But instead I just sit there all day holding up everything. Its just not fair, all the other clouds get to float freely way high in the sky. The only reason I did this job was because I thought it would be easy. But I guess it changed. I’m not what I’m supposed to be. I’m not creamy colored any more, I’m red because I’ve been working too hard, and I’m so tired. Every once in a while I see a beautiful cloud drift on by. But, right here and right now it’s just me, all alone.
