    The Cinderella Story: Part 1 - An Introduction to Evil

    Lord Tremaine - a noble of the land - threw a dinner feast at his humble estate, inviting the widow of his deceased friend to attend. She brought along her two daughters, both of whom took much delight in the nights' spread. The guests made themselves much at home, leaving quite the mess of dirty dishes, a puke filled toilet, and even overstaying welcome once the festivities were through.

    And guess who was tasked with cleaning up after them.

    The Cinderella Story: Part 2 - Bloom of Romance

    In the days to follow, Lord Tremaine became a great source of comfort for the grieving widow of his good friend. Together they enjoyed fine dine outs, long walks and smooth talks. On this occasion Lord Tremaine took her out for pampering, going as far as to provide her delicate hands with a massage himself. In truth what seemed like an ordinary massage was really to determine the width of her fingers.

    The reason?

    mGueD58.png

    He led her away from the bustling venue to a more peaceful and secluded area.

    z5MB2XQ.png

    To him it seemed about the right time and right place.

    jbNfi2I.png

    He wanted to make her his Lady. With a promise to end her grief.

    EMIFmM2.png

    She was taken aback, but overjoyed. At a time in her life most difficult along came Lord. He too had lost his former spouse to death. Perhaps their similar situation is what brought them together so quickly.

    Or maybe there was another factor?

    The Cinderella Story: Part 3 - Unavoidable Fate

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚
    It was dinnertime at the Tremaine residence.

    9i72nv6.png

    Cindy was enjoying a pleasant conversation with her father.

    5rkieYh.png

    When suddenly there was a knock at the front door.

    cayUCry.png

    "Who is it?" Cindy called.

    lnwwIwA.png

    Twas her father's fiancée who had popped by for a visit. (She got into a fight that's why she has bruises on her face.)

    ZpMmHvs.png

    Of course Lord was happy to see her.

    I2ofBNc.png

    Cindy hadn't the time to get to know this madam in the past, so she graciously stole the opportunity.

    MbZxGSG.png

    The Madam was so tender and loving in the way she spoke. It was appealing.

    UbWX7a9.png

    Lord expressed concern over Cindy's viewpoint of his fiancée. After all the woman would soon take the role as her stepmother.

    JHpQdDK.png

    Cindy thought it was so sweet of him to inquire! But her father needn't worry, for anyone who made him happy makes her happy as well.

    1IlCnq7.png

    Meanwhile while Cindy and her father continued their heart-to-heart inside, a sinister heart set into motion outside their warm doors.

    2aK1AiT.png

    And it laughed over its rotten desires.

    DrKLoqQ.png

    One foot already through the door. Just a matter of time before the lord's wealth and prestige will become her own inheritance!

    2HtWIyv.png

    Cindy wasn't sure why, but as of late it seemed like her chores have increased. Have gremlins invaded their home, causing ruin whenever her eyes were shut?

    The Cinderella Story: Part 4 - Wedding

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚
    It was the morning of her father's wedding. Cindy got up early to make him a special breakfast.

    ligQuE7.png

    Lord Tremaine was grateful to have such a considerate daughter like her.

    nt7ScpV.png

    Cindy even started on a special flower arrangement for her soon-to-be Stepmother.

    NdqhdCw.png

    And... finished. It was now time for the wedding!

    UeFCF4h.png

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚

    Drizella was the first of the sisters to congratulate their new stepfather.

    f7ZYQhD.png

    When she left him, Lord Tremaine took a moment to gaze upon the area where he would soon wed.

    XG4oa3E.png

    "Wow Cinderella, I can't believe we will soon be stepsisters. Are you excited?"

    a4LjcAO.png

    Unbeknownst to the bride, groom, or any of the guests the bartender to their wedding feast wasn't the usual worker at that particular joint.

    vCFt4ro.png

    This curious son of a wealthy aristocrat was working uncover, keen on identifying the latest noble of the season to get married.

    Rv56r1m.png

    And so, the wedding continued.

    dxaTSJ2.png
    kiSxB8v.png
    56LHbxC.png
    LGDESDS.png

    What a success! Cindy was so happy for her father!

    sZW46Qw.png

    Her father too was happy to have a mother figure back in his daughter's life!

    YRgrCYO.png

    Back at the restaurant the newlyweds shared the first bite of cake.

    SrNHt0C.png

    At home Cindy finally gave her Stepmother the flower arrangement she made.

    dJvoboX.png

    It sat proudly on the living room counter. Hopefully their happiness as a new family lasts long after such flowers wither away.

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚
    "Get up Cinderella. It's already morning."

    jT5WK8Z.png

    "Ugh."

    Lately her Stepmother had been waking her up before everyone else in the house to make breakfast.

    FTNiD17.png

    At first she didn't mind, but there are days where she would like to sleep in too!

    PW83Bbh.png

    Oh well. The family needs to eat after all.

    jdjHbhz.png

    "The quality of your eggs were poor today. You're slipping Cinderella."

    sHT4pWv.png

    "Really? I'm so sorry Stepmother."

    OX9xRP7.png

    Today Cindy was extremely tired and she admits to cooking a little carelessly.

    2hGMNGl.png

    She hopes her Stepmother wasn't too disappointed.

    pebQ3gd.png

    Lord Tremaine rolled out of bed rather late and was feeling under the weather.

    gRJuxKZ.png

    His presence brought an end to their light conflict.

    KzPdpHD.png

    But Lady Tremaine would not forget this moment.

    7WN1VLu.png

    When Drizella came down for breakfast Lady Tremaine's mood seemed to lift.

    The Cinderella Story: Part 6 - Illness

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚
    The nights grow longer and there's a chill in the air. Winter is approaching.

    FGQp6i6.png

    It is another quiet evening at the Tremaine residence.

    MJ1f9FA.png

    Lord Tremaine had fallen ill and his symptoms worsen with the passing of time.

    TMa8G4M.png

    He figures he can endure them a little longer before taking himself to the hospital.

    xcsY03P.png

    Anastasia and Drizella slept soundly that night...

    Rrlcpho.png

    ...as Cindy worked diligently on her homework. Homework has become a late night task due to her days being so filled with chores.

    ASaivFp.png

    Her father seized the opportunity for a quick chat. It felt like the pair have not had a personal moment like such in a long time.

    7zvvrfj.png

    Lately her stepsisters have been giving Cindy grief over trivial matters, leaving her extremely puzzled.

    P9SUovo.png
    iMZc2Rt.png
    ueKvzxX.png

    Their mother was fully aware of their attitude towards Cinderella, but does nothing to stop them.

    DeIDKyz.png

    When Cindy finally brought up her concerns her Stepmother lashed out at her.

    09zN73g.png

    "Who are you to criticize my daughters? Do you think you are above them, little-miss-perfect?"

    8g8F1iC.png

    "N-no, I-"

    adLYOPI.png

    Cindy didn't go to her father for help as he has recently become bedridden and she didn't want to burden him more.

    HNhW3t3.png

    What else could she do regarding her step family?

    DziYM4E.png

    For the time being Cindy drowns her anguish in art.

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚

    The next morning...

    "Look, dear Anastasia. Look who's sleeping in again. Your step sister is getting lazier and lazier. Pitiful, isn't she?"

    nL0KQr5.png

    "Argh!" Cindy is not sure how much more of this she can take! Could things be any worse!?

    xM8RZrB.png

    He knows... Lord Tremaine knows very well how his new wife has been treating his darling Cinderella.

    2F1Ihkp.png

    But his mind and body have become so weak from this unknown illness.

    rUU5EQH.png

    He hardly has enough energy to go to work. Let alone st... sta...n......d...

    The Cinderella Story: Part 7 - A Vacation to Remember

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚
    The Tremaines have come to Granite Falls for a small vacation. Lord intends for the memories they make to bring them closer together as a family.

    CtBh2nG.png

    The lord and his lady enjoyed dinner by the bonfire.

    NEhIKZR.png
    jHdIsi6.png

    Followed by a romantic slow dance.

    lKvAIMJ.png
    XYzpvBV.png

    Back at the lodging the family settled down for the night.

    eRUfojf.png

    Anastasia went to warm herself by the fireplace, but got too close to the open flame.

    A fire commenced!

    ctar5Mk.png

    The smoke quickly spread throughout the home, waking Cindy up.

    "What happened Anastasia?!"

    HlMJfue.png

    The only one still asleep was Lord Tremaine.

    gytLfjq.png

    Everyone began to evacuate, but Cindy did not see her father.

    sWv5hkA.png

    He has always been a man of quick action. Cindy convinced herself that he was already outside.

    5uyuAIr.png

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚

    "Fu-fu-fire?!"

    The lord was finally roused by the smell of smoke. He had to put it out at all costs! For his family's sake!

    yUCk6Jy.png

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚

    After what felt like a lifetime the house alarm finally ceased its ringing. The fire must have died out.

    g1ZD5jl.png

    Cindy still did not see her father. Perhaps it was him who put out the flames?

    7mSsN9l.png

    As the family made their way back inside...

    sv4xSRy.png

    ...Cindy felt tight knots form in her stomach.

    CnJZvwS.png

    All was silent until Anastasia shattered the calm with a deafening shriek.

    iMcWChJ.png

    Cindy rushed over to see what was distressing her.

    And she could not believe her eyes...

    "NOOO!!! This... this can't be happening!!"

    ALsmOeM.png

    Lord Tremaine, her father, was dead. His body lay lifeless next to ashes.

    EHnqEwZ.png

    The realization of his death sunk in differently for everyone. While most mourned, one wicked woman looked on with a smile on her face.

    iRF00uS.png

    All of the lord's riches would undoubtedly fall to her. No longer would she need to worry about her daughters' futures.

    And most importantly, no longer would she have to pretend to care for that wretched Cinderella.

    PClumGn.png

    Before her disposition could give away her intentions, Lady Tremaine gave one last dramatic plea to the reaper.

    ieWJ0kk.png

    And it quite expectantly fell on deaf ears.

    32FhxKx.png

    So it was done. "Farewell, my lord."

    H5rzfOn.png

    The girls continued to mourn all through the night as their mother collected the ashes.

    fjffxct.png

    Cindy collapsed on the couch nearby from exhaustion and anguish.

    Poor little Cinderella. Life has not been kind to you.

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚
    The Grim Reaper is all too aware that the fire which killed Lord Tremaine was no accident.

    tubdWZ1.png

    "What are you saying? That I started the fire purposefully?"

    UWPzVl9.png

    "Your heart is a selfish Anastasia. I can see right through you."

    PisO4mC.png

    Okay, fine. Maybe she did cause the fire, but she wasn't trying to kill anyone! She was planning on blaming Cinderella for it, and hoping that their parents would punish her when she was suppose to be enjoying this family vacation.

    p6pmLmD.png

    Anastasia took a good look at herself in the mirror.

    b3CZdt5.png

    The Lord may be gone and that truly did make her sad, but at least along with him went Cinderella's last chance at happiness.

    h6GJoTZ.png

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚

    The next morning Drizella took her anguish out on Cinderella.

    UVakNBc.png

    Her words were too much to bear and gave Cindy a headache.

    J6aJ10n.png

    Seeing Cinderella in pain made her kind of... happy? How strange.

    4PogEFv.png

    Now that the lord was gone there was no one left to defend his precious sheep.

    9Tt81ol.png

    Lady Tremaine came around and gave Cindy a chilling glare.

    hSnBxjC.png

    Which shook her to the core.

    xhVGgJE.png

    "Come Drizella. Let not this negative energy sour our day."

    4XmnHDm.png

    There was no comfort. Instead, her step family threw venom at her.
    The future looked horrifyingly bleak.

    The girls are back from their tragic vacation, not without bringing home some of the drama.
    Anastasia and Drizella entered into a heated argument by the pier.

    QPADXsY.png

    Annoying the local fishers thoroughly.

    dTmIK7y.png

    Lady Tremaine adopted a kitty, which she named Lucifer.

    GsVTl1B.png

    Cindy noticed something strange with her room. Her entire bed was missing!

    qoU4mCx.png

    But her stepsisters still had their own. She simply must confront her stepmother about this.

    e50OPJZ.png

    "Stepmother. We need to talk."

    TtNtP9f.png

    Although her matter was urgent there was one thing concerning...

    YMpP3Cs.png

    Her stepmother was already in a conversation that Cindy, in her opinion, was quite rudely interrupting.

    Su8m7pb.png

    "What... What happened to my bed, Stepmother? I have no where to sleep without it!"

    pHGvdQW.png

    "Oh, don't you fret Cinderella. Let me show you where you shall be sleeping from now on."

    3zFwkby.png

    "This tent will be your new resting place! And I don't want to hear any complaints about it. Do you understand?"

    FW5Pz6u.png

    She was expected to sleep out here in the dead of winter?

    E6tB9xK.png

    "This can't be happening..."

    1TAhbLV.png

    "Father, please give me strength..."

    Wd95Kxu.png

    It will be a long, cold winter for poor Cinderella.

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚
    The time had finally come for Cinderella and her stepsisters to age up into young adults.
    Cindy got right on making everyone's cake.

    AJsod4V.png

    Which turned out great.

    f0u90N7.png

    The girls took turns making their wishes.

    S3CVZGe.png
    MlmN1pN.png

    Lady Tremaine had a few choice words to say about the dinner Cindy prepared.

    YyIXekR.png

    Mentally, Cindy wasn't having any of her complaining or belittling that day.

    f70ZU1n.png

    Although the Lady hated to admit it, Cindy's dishes were always quite delicious.

    295Uis9.png

    Lucifer also found the food delicious. But those dumplings were not for kitties, so Cindy scolded him.

    "Lucifer! Stop that! You have your own food!"

    6J4PqwE.png

    HISSSSS!!

    B4rIhNp.png

    The thought of it all! Not even the house cat respected her!

    hyEEJap.png

    Thankfully local cat expert Catarina was around to put a stop to Lucifer's behaviour.

    Fqi6WmL.png

    It was so nice to have someone on Cinderella's side for once.

    lG6hf1x.png

    The party quickly came to an end with everyone off to bed. Cindy was so busy cleaning up the messes she had yet to make her own wish.

    vXZ3GHc.png

    Despite how difficult her life had become and no matter how many tears fell, Cinderella still held on dearly to her dreams. Confident that as long as she kept believing, one day her dreams really would come true.

    99ainsz.png

    For all those Cinderella fans out there, the last bit of this part has a slight reference to a famous heartwarming scene from the movie (check spoiler).
    Perhaps you can guess? 。+゚゚+。:.゚

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚
    Now that Cinderella was a young adult her stepmother decided that she should take on even more responsibilities around the house.

    gcPV93S.png

    Cinderella practically sped through her chores as they have become second nature at this point.

    WQmAObP.png
    wSVBUMe.png
    26VM4lo.png

    Upstairs her stepfamily was enjoying pleasant afternoon strings performed by Drizella.

    bTQ6mkA.png

    The sounds were lovely and Cindy really wanted to join them.

    GCobEcY.png

    "Hey Drizella, look who the cat dragged in."

    pTT6EmZ.png

    "I finished up my morning chores and thought I'd see you play the violin some."

    xedUvPG.png

    "Pfft, hahaha!"
    "Did you hear that Anastasia?"

    nXg0NY3.png

    "Did I... say something wrong?"

    jeMO7Fn.png

    "The only thing you should be listening to Cinderella is the sound of your hands getting to work! Mother will certainly hear about you slacking off!"

    And that she did. Lady Tremaine gave Cindy an earful later that day.

    She wasn't allowed even a moment to enjoy music with her family.

    The realization alone broke her heart.

    And left her wicked stepfamily feeling quite full of themselves.

    "Oh Cindereeeeeellaaaaa! Rise and shine!"

    What a start to her day... What could Anastasia and Drizella want so early in the morning?

    333t5rj.png

    "You have a big day ahead of you Cinderella. First, I want you to redo my laundry because it doesn't smell fresh enough. Then give the hedge in the front yard a much needed trim."

    R7OZ8Lj.png

    "No, no! I want you to focus on making breakfast first. I'm starving. Then you could look after Drizella's stuff. Also, Lucifer's litterbox needs to be cleaned. I can't stand the smell! And his claws need clipping too."

    QrHeBxd.png

    "Yes, Anastasia. Yes, Drizella."

    QejaeSS.png

    "Golly. Can you believe she wasted this much time sleeping? So much could have been done already."
    "I know right! Should we tell Mother about this?"

    RwF1Ksx.png

    As her stepsisters continued to berate her, Cindy suddenly felt a strange sensation.

    jxnonKr.png

    In that moment it felt like someone was looking out for her. That someone, somewhere, really cared for her.
    Was it her father watching over her? A guardian angel? Well, whatever it was the feeling gave Cindy a moment of peace and the strength to take on the day.

    Quite tired of seeing Cinderella's miserable face at home, Anastasia came up with an idea to appeal herself and Drizella to a couple of hunks at the bar.

    HOUksXu.png

    But not even the bartender wanted anything to do with these wicked stepsisters.

    So much for that plan.

    Back at home Cindy was feeling down in the dumps. Why wasn't she allowed to go out and have fun like her stepsisters?

    5wADmPA.png

    She brought up her troubles to her stepmother and that's when things took a turn for the ugly.

    2fVA5in.png

    Her stepmother gave her a firm smack on the cheek!
    "How dare you insinuate that my daughters are out there goofing off. Concern yourself solely with your work Cinderella."

    n7YWBeC.png

    "Y-Y...yes, Stepmother."
    Cindy didn't know what else to say. She was in shock.

    So much in shock that the moment she was out of her stepmother's sight, Cinderella bolted to her neighbour Catarina's home for refuge.

    Cinderella frantically explained the reason for her sudden visit.

    cBJWaHj.png

    "Oh, you poor thing!" Catarina took a gander at the bruise under Cindy's eye. "You stay here for as long as you need to."

    Cvmpsbl.png

    Catarina was the first person to know of and understand Cindy's mistreatment. She was so happy to share her grief with someone, she couldn't hold herself back from hugging the cat crazed woman as hard as she could.

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚

    Cindy didn't go home after visiting Catarina. No, next stop was her father's grave.
    She poured her heart out and wailed over her situation, begging for her father's return. Somehow... Some way...
    At this point she didn't care about logic. She was terrified to go back to that house alone.

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚

    After that, Cindy took herself to the city, walking rather aimlessly until she stumbled upon a karaoke bar.

    KOa1wMx.png

    Cindy loved to sing and it looked like such a great time getting up on that stage.

    BIfsD78.png

    How she dreamed to be as free as a songbird.

    Cindy finally built up enough courage to get herself on that stage. She sang to her heart's contentment.

    And the people seemed to really enjoy her performance.

    Sure enough she was outside waiting for the girls when they got home.

    tFTXzKn.png

    "Get inside Anastasia."

    1evMdQD.png

    "Here. A gift to lighten the mood."
    To Cindy's complete and utter surprise her stepmother didn't start by berating her. Instead she was giving her... a gift?

    JFXfDDQ.png

    What could it b-

    XcLsvom.png

    "Ack!"

    RYVUXOp.png

    "W-what is this?"

    RNCH1hD.png

    "Lucifer's litter that had piled up since you've been gone. Now let's not speak of the day's events because I grow tired. Instead let's focus on moving forward from this misstep, hm? Tomorrow you will scrub the house up and down, twice and thrice until I can see my reflection everywhere. The laundry will be folded, the garden will be trimmed, the errands will be ran. You will not rest, nor eat until your work is complete. Do I make myself clear Cinderella?"

    4XOiCD6.png

    "Yes, Stepmother."

    85RKSwA.png
    cuPBbYv.png

    Back in the house Lady Tremaine dished it out to her daughter as well.
    "You realize that wretch thought it was okay to go out because you and Drizella went fooling around in a bar today! Do not say your goodnights until you've scrubbed the bathroom sink!"

    b6lLHAJ.png

    Why was she getting in trouble as well?! She went to find Cinderella and bring her home after all!

    XwCINNs.png

    This is all Cinderella's fault. Anastasia will make sure she pays for this!

    ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚ ゚+。:.゚ .:。+゚゚+。:.゚

    Due to the events of last night Cinderella knew a tough day lay ahead. That being the case she decided to meet the day head on by getting up earlier than usual to prepare her wicked step family's fanciful breakfast. While prepping the eggs she went over the massive to-do list provided with glee by her Stepmother and breathed a heavy sigh.

    Daylight burned and there was no chance for rest in sight as far as Anastasia was concerned.
    It was a broken plate here, spilt water there, garbage piles everywhere!

    Song and dance were the only companions of the day.
    When no one was looking, or within earshot, Cindy danced to the tune of her own voice. Continuing to dream of fond days passed
    ...or perhaps soon to come.

    .・゜-: ✧ :- As she danced a not-so-fond but interesting memory of yesterday popped into mind.
    -: ✧ :-゜・.
    It was three in the morning when Cindy was caught at the karaoke bar by Anastasia and forced to head home with her stepsister.
    As they were leaving Cindy noticed a love themed festival going on and so badly wanted to attend.

    So she pulled another uncharacteristically risky move. When the house was sound asleep she stole away to the city once again to see how the festival was coming along. Hoping it hadn't reached it completion by the time she arrived.

    ypHXT2E.png

    Thankfully things were still as lively as when she left!

    41858RT.png

    Having not had her shower for the day, on top of slipping on a mud puddle in her excitement to get to the festival, Cindy was absolutely filthy.
    Though she didn't let her appearance stop her from thoroughly exploring the lively atmosphere.

    bilzjQY.png

    She eventually came across what seemed to be a self-proclaimed love expert and was positively thrilled!
    She hadn't given it much thought until now, but became curious about the possibility of finding true love.

    msdrvYB.png

    While at the same time being oh so anxious. What if true love wasn't written in her story?

    b462wuQ.png

    "Ah, yes my dear. Your love story is veeerry interesting..."

    VfitNfX.png

    "Interesting?! In what way?"

    AsXIDly.png

    "Oh, um... Actually... Sorry, I didn't mean that in a good way. Given your current situation, in other words, what you just told me... Uhh..."

    LaGszfQ.png

    Il0NJ4K.png

    Right. Of course. Why would she expect anything else?

    HEti8Ec.png

    Nobody with a shred of common sense could see her finding true love in her current situation.
    Ha! It would take a miracle alone to save her from her stepfamily.
    All she can do is keep dreaming.

    The ghost of Lord Tremaine invited Cinderella's fairy godmother to ghost night at the bar.

    Not only was he aware of the suffering Lady Tremaine and her daughters had brought upon his darling Cinderella, but he was also the one to request the godmother's help to save her.
    For whatever reason though the fairy godmother was taking, in what he perceived, her sweet time to act. Lord Tremaine was quite upset.

    xW6ZGTh.png

    "Lord Tremaine I assure you your daughter is in good hands. These things take time. Although the moment to act will soon be upon us."

    F5JUZ5Z.png

    "So long as you and the child keep believing."

    "Ugh! Broken again? Cinderella!!"

    "Why are you loafing around out here when the entire household is falling apart! Go inside and fix stuff right now or I'll tell Mother!"

    Another day, another situation of being used and abused by others. Cindy was so upset she made a snowpal into the likeness of Drizella, or at least the Drizella of her mind.

    B6bRZ9b.png

    And destroyed it in a fit of anger. This was all she could do to get her frustration out.
