Her mother had died giving her birth. Her cruel step-mother and sisters did all they could to make sure each day was miserable for her.

There was a commotion in the town square when she accompanied her step-sisters and step-mother. She bumped into her old best friend, Jane, she hadn’t seen in years. Jane excitedly awaited the announcement…the Prince would be giving a Ball for all to attend and he will…
