We all know the story of Cinderella. The story of a girl who lived happily with her father and mother. She had not a care in the world, and her world was filled with flowers and sunshine. Her mother was kind, and her father was the best dad you could have. But then her mother died, and her father thought it would be an excellent idea to remarry. She got a new mom-
Right, a stepmother and two stepsisters.
How lovely. Life was, well, not perfect but still doable. Her father was usually busy with his work, and one time he had to leave and had to go on a business trip. Cinderella's days were now lonely, and she tried to avoid her stepmother and stepsisters at all costs. Because if they found her, she would not have to be bored any longer, and not in a good way.
When her father returned home, Cinderella almost cried. She hugged her father and told him never to leave again. But the next week, he had to go again. And this time, he did not return. Her stepmother took over the household, and with her father gone, she had free play. But at the same time, her stepmother had no money since Cinderella's father brought in all the money. You should know that Cinderella and her father were very rich and lived in a big house. Of course, like any house, it had to be cleaned and maintained. But because the stepmother had no income, she had to fire the staff. Cinderella was set to work and had to do all the chores. She had to clean the floors, scrub the stairs, collect the dust, keep the garden nice and tidy, et cetera, et cetera.
Now, if you know the story of Cinderella, you know that she met her fairy godmother, went to a ball, met the prince, married, and lived happily ever after.
But that is the story you've heard. Let me tell you what really happened. But who else could tell you better than the person herself?
'Finally! I thought you never shut up.'
A little background story is fundamental. If you don't tell the background story, people wouldn't know what you want to say.
'Yeah, yeah. I get it, but no one cares what I had to clean.'
...I say we agree to disagree. Please, continue.
'Alright. Well then. Hello, readers. The Author told me to introduce myself, so here I go. By now, you must realize that I'm Cinderella. If you didn't, I guess you haven't studied the title well enough.
You can't be mean to the readers, Cinderella. Be kind and-
'Do not finish that sentence.'
'Anyway, shall we begin?'
