___________________________________________________________________________

When the outside temperature rises
And the meanings is oh so clear
One thousand and one yellow daffodils
Begin to dance in front of you, oh dear
Are they trying to tell you something?

The prison cell she was in was very spacious and luxurious. Not your typical one, indeed. However, Elizabeth Noventa didn't really even notice it. She just sat on the bed, swaying back and forth repeating… "They can't do this to me. They can't do this to me."

Lizzy had been trying to think of ways to get back at the ones responsible for her current situation. Nothing else seemed to matter. Not even her upcoming trail. She never even realized that she had been saying the same sentence over and over again. Nor did she even care.

Then there came a voice. It was calling her name, but where was it? She stopped swaying and looked around. The mirror. The voice that was calling her came from the mirror in front of her. She gazed at the reflection staring back. It remained silent for a while. Just gazing back at her. Then it spoke.

"Elizabeth." It called again.

"Grandfather!" Lizzy shrieked.

You're missing that one final screw
You're simply not in the pink my dear
To be honest you haven't got a clue
I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened - happened
It finally happened - ooh oh
It finally happened - I'm slightly mad
Oh dear!

Marshal Noventa's reflection in the mirror smiled at Elizabeth. He looked very proud of his granddaughter.

"I did good, didn't I Grandfather?" She asked the reflection, standing proud. "I showed them that I could be just as good as you were."

"No, Elizabeth. You didn't do good at all." The marshal's expression turned into a frown. "You disappointed me. You are not MY granddaughter!! He spoke harshly before the reflection disappeared.

"No Grandfather. I am your granddaughter. I tried to make peace happen. I really tried. Please Grandfather, come back." Lizzy cried as she put her hands on the mirror. "Come back."

I'm one card short of a full deck
I'm not quite the shilling
One wave short of a shipwreck
I'm not my usual top billing
I'm coming down with a fever
I'm really out to sea

The image returned to the mirror, but instead of Marshal Noventa, it was Elizabeth's cousin, Sylvia. Lizzy looked at the grim expression that was planted on her cousin's face.

"You've disappointed the entire family, Elizabeth. We no longer consider you a Noventa." Sylvia told her, shaking her head.

"No!" Lizzy cried, pounding the mirror with her fists. "I am a Noventa. I WILL always be one. You can't tell me I'm not." She shouted.

The kettle is boiling over
I think I'm a banana tree
Oh dear, I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened, happened
It finally happened, uh huh
It finally happened I'm slightly mad - oh dear!

More images came to the mirror before her. Each one with grim faces. Each one making their disappoints clear. First, Liao's image expressed his disappointment.

"You shot me, Lizzy. I can't believe you did that. Well, don't worry. You'll get yours in the end."

Then the image of Relena appeared.

"I'm glad you screwed up being president! Now you know not to mess with things you know nothing about, little girl."

Then came Quatre.

"I'm so glad I never trusted you from day one. I could smell that you were a RAT."

Then Sally.

"I'm thrilled I got to punch you when I had the change, you BITCH. If I ever get a hold of you, I will teach you NOT to mess with my family again."

Then Aiden.

"You are so lucky someone got to me first, for I was about to dispose of you. I was sooo close."

Then Magdalena.

"You may have killed me, but I will live on only to haunt you for the rest of your life."

Then Fran appeared.

"You are a very mean lady. Why would you want to hurt me? I didn't do anything to you."

I'm knitting with only one needle
Unravelling fast its true
I'm driving only three wheels these days
But my dear how about you?

Before the next image could appear, Lizzy snapped.

"LEAVE ME ALONE! ALL OF YOU! I CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE OF THIS! She screamed out.

She drove one of her fists right through the mirror, shattering it instantly. Lizzy started screaming again, but not from the pain in her now bleeding fist. She hardly felt the pain and barely noticed the blood pouring out of her hand and pooling beneath her. She doubled over in the pool of blood, and stayed that way until the guards came to investigate.

I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened
It finally happened oh yes
It finally happened
I'm slightly mad!
Just very slightly mad!
And there you have it!

"And there you have it. Elizabeth Noventa will not continue with her trail due to her recent diagnosis of insanity. And now for our follow up story to the recent sightings of the ghost of Duke Dermil…"

Mariemaya frowned at the now blank TV. She couldn't believe the news she had just heard on the nightly news broadcast. Elizabeth Noventa insane? They were not going to like this.

"Ruth…contact the others and tell them to meet me in my office in an hour." She informed her secretary. "Tell them I just received some disturbing news."
