The Unsuspecting Cinderella
This is story will take a creative spin on the classic fairytale Cinderella.
Ella lives in a small town with her stepmother Reece and her father until she is fifteen. Her life takes a sudden turn when her father dies of a heart attack. She is eighteen now and lives alone with Reece. Unlike the classic tale, Reece is not rude or abusive at all. In fact, she is more of a sister to Ella than a mother.
On the day of the annual Sky Festival, Ella runs into some of her old friends. Hearing about a mysterious guest, Ella and her friend rush to see who it could be. To no ones surprise, it's their Crown Prince who has come to announce something important. The Prince is throwing a public ball to help him choose a bride.
Reece was devastated she couldn't attend, she claimed she wasn't worthy of the Prince, Ella is forced to attend in her place. Ella agrees to go, but warns Reece not to get her hopes up. There was no way Ella would be able to get anywhere near the Prince, let alone have him propose to her.
Ella has a few interesting encounters before, but when she makes her way to the ball in one piece. After stuffing her face with the delicious cuisine, Ella decides to take refuge in the first empty room she can find. She has a few seconds of peace before being discovered by a mysterious man. He claims he needed to escape from the ball too. Ella welcomes the stranger into her secret hide out, discovering that he is decently normal compared to the rest of the crowd.
Ella returns to the ball a few minutes after her new found friend, only to discover that she has been chosen as a possible bride!!!
A/N Please don't use other authors stories as material for anything you are going to claim without their permission. We work really hard to write this stuff and would hate for it to be stollen! Thanks!
P.S. The first few chapters are not my best, but it gets a lot better!!!
