Everyone stood, gaping at Mulan. Tiana's eyes flickered back and forth from Cinderella, Mulan and the spear. Finally, after a short period of frozen shock, Aurora rushed forward and knelt next to Cinderella's body. A single tear ran down her face. It hit the ground, then she looked up. "How could you? What did Cinderella ever do to you?"
"Exactly. Nothing. I'd banish you and let the knights hunt you down, but I can't risk the lives of my people."
"You wouldn't! I didn't-"
"Just shut it, Mulan. You killed Ariel, and now Cinderella." She turned to a guard that happened to be walking down that corridor. "Take her away. Lock her in the dungeons. A life sentence."
"No! Aurora, you can't do this-"
"Yes. I can."
With that, she snapped her fingers, and the guard took Mulan. He called to another guard, who wrenched the spear out of Mulan's hand, snapped it in two, and threw it into the fireplace. Mulan was carted off, Mushu still hidden in the folds of her dress.
Aurora rose from her place near Cinderella. She took a seat on a stone bench, put her hands in her face and cried. Belle had the sense to call for smelling salts, which Marie brought, and waved them under Snow White's nose. Her eyes fluttered, and she woke up. Everyone sighed in relief, anxious that Snow White had been killed too. She sat up and looked around. Her squirrels climbed onto her lap. "Where's Cinderella? Where'd she go?"
Everyone looked away and didn't answer. Snow White gasped. Pocahontas said gently, "Mulan did it. We came in and saw her holding a bloody spear. Standing over Cinderella."
Snow White thought about Pocahontas's words. "But Mulan always says her duty is to her heart. DOes this mean...Mulan's heart is evil?"
"Turned evil, by the looks of it," Jasmine said. "If she was evil, she wouldn't have taken her father;s place in the army. It must have been the evils of war and killing in her blood."
"But she had no motive to do it." Belle pointed out.
"I don't know...but I have a feeling that whoever did this-Mulan or not-had almost no motive, and are just evil."
"Snow? Do you remember anything?" said Aurora.
"Well, Cinderella and I came in here to visit the squirrels, like I said. We here here a few minutes, maybe fifteen or so, and then I saw a club coming down on my head. It was held by-of course! It all makes sense now! It was-" Snow White disappeared. Everyone gasped again, and Belle fainted. Tiana knelt to use the smelling salts again, and Aurora shouted, "Mulan!" Tiana stayed with Belle, but everyone else ran to the dungeons. Aurora demanded entrance, and the guards quickly let her in. When a prisoner is taken, they're chained to the wall, limbs spread out in four directions, with their feet not touching the ground. Mulan was still hanging on the wall. But the chains were cut, and there was a noose around her neck.
