Hey guys! Welcome to yet another Wattpad Block Party! I'm Ashleigh aka AshleighParkers on Wattpad and this is my fourth time participating in this glorious event! These series have been going on for so long and it couldn't be possible without the lovely behind the scenes putting all this together for us. Thank you so much for having me be apart of this Kelly! <3 Hugs and daggers! ;)
For this Wattpad Block Party, I wanted to share with you all a short extract of something a friend of mine and I worked on. She was given the assignment to work on a story for historical fiction where the main character faced prejudicial behaviour based on who they were or the color of their skin. My friend chose to look at Vitiligo - a disease in which the pigment cells of the skin, melanocytes, are destroyed in certain areas. I was then tasked to do a story surrounding that disease and how our main character would overcome it [with a little romantic motivation of course ;)]
So without further adieu, I present The Masterpiece Within:
P.S. There's no such thing as the Cryptic Times, haha. We only used that for the project
Elizabeth Dartworth paced the corner of the peach coated room, her olive green dress dragging on the hard wooden floorboards. Her light brown hair had been pinned up neatly, the way her grandmother had instructed. Her green eyes occasionally glanced out her window, where she had the most spectacular view of the sun shimmering above the ocean. She could hear Grandmother's voice rising as she spoke, her true temperament showing in her tone.
The doctors had departed, just as all the others did when they finished their tests. They did not know what was wrong with me, they didn't know the answers to my worried Grandfather's questions.
"There is nothing more you can do for her, George!" Grandmother screamed at the top of her voice, "Let the child be. She is not to be associated with this family. She shan't!"
"She is your own flesh and blood, Juliette -"
"She is not mine!" her voice towered over his, "she shall never be mine. She merely lives in this house out of the kindness of your heart. Our son's transgressions. Had he chosen a better mistress -"
