Learn about her evil family and the latest town's gossip. Learn about Emily's subtle bravery.

A Cinderella story

The Stepfamily

She has an evil stepmother who never stops watching her. She can always feel her eyes on her shoulders and back, her stepsisters watch her too.

Some of the townsfolk say it’s because of her beauty and youthfulness. She has striking blonde hair and lovely blue eyes, a perfect combination. She has the cutest, little nose whereas her stepsisters all have long noses, yet, she is the one who has Jewish blood not her stepsisters. She is named Emily.

Emily would like to run away from her stepfamily who bosses her around. Emily knows she had parents once but she can’t remember them, her memories have disappeared.

Now, she might have the chance to run away by being sent away for she is Jewish to a slave, torture camp, which is the rumor. The war has spread to the deepest corner of Poland.

Emily’s three stepsisters are named Victoria, Penelope and Elizabeth. Victoria calls Emily “Dirty blood” and “Rat”. This encourages Penelope and Elizabeth to play along but they are only joking, jokes don’t hurt right?

Emily lives in a broomstick cupboard and she can never leave the house. Hopefully she won’t be sent away to a Jewish war camp. She has to bear with Victoria’s worst insults but that’s better than being tortured right?

All she knows is misery but what did she do to deserve such misery? She has no idea, if she knows she can’t remember. Some townsfolk say she is brave to stay, everyone knows how rude her stepsisters are, but she certainly never feels brave.

Emily has a gentle sense of dignity, her only amusement is singing while she washes the muddy floor only to have it ruined again by that darn cat, Henrietta.

Emily’s stepmother, Dorothy is the ugliest woman but she wears a beautiful mask. She certainly acts ugly but her face is always beautiful like a porcelain doll. She has long brown hair and black eyes that burn into the edges of your soul.

Emily would love to run away but she never will. She is doomed to a life of cleaning and insults for all eternity.

Unless, she finds a handsome prince to take her away and there is one named Gaston in the palace, but that could be another prison, either way she is woefully doomed.
