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 rumour. 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.

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

Ro-Ange Olson: Loved it and couldn't put it down. I really hope there is a sequel. Well written and the plot really moves forward.

Ashley Stryker: So I'm writing this review, keeping in mind that this is a work in progress and it's part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so my "deeper" critiques will be saved until it's all finished up.+ Chapter One: A stewardess would not talk to anyone quite like that, particularly a clear minor...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

MegaRogueLegend666: I love this story so much. It's impossible to describe my excitement with each new chapter in words. The author has such a good writing style, very good descriptions of the fighting and character descriptions/emotions. the plot is also amazing! This fanfic could be a side anime show or novel ......

Jessie: I wrote a review on fanfiction but I thought it would be fitting to write on on here too :) This story was honestly stunning. I am a budding writer myself and to read this- to FEEL this- reminded me of why I am honoured to have this passion and drive for a craft that is just so raw and beautiful.
