I've heard a lot of people tell my story recently. They leave out a lot of the important details. For example: 

My step-mother isn't a horrible person, just bitter. 

The prince and I were never really in love. 

The coach wasn't a pumpkin, I'm just really good friends with the guy in charge of the stables.
Mostly, though, I hear them mix my story with hers. The people have even confused our names. 

The stories say that the prince wed the beautiful, blessed, orphan girl named Cinderella. 
In reality, he married Cinder. 

I'm Ella. 

We are two completely different people. She's the fairy who yearned for a human prince to find happiness. I am the maid who the prince pretended was the answer.
