Cinderella Syndrome 24
original image from...
the call of
in a cloud of ash dust
--Bette Norcross Wappner (b'oki)
When her father and stepmother and two sisters came home after the ball they could talk of nothing but the lovely lady: "Ah, would not you have like to have been there?" said the sisters to Cinder Maid/ Cinderella... as she helped them to take off their fine dresses. "The was a most lovely lady with a dress like the heavens and shoes of bright copper, and the prince would dance with none but her; and when midnight came she disappeared and the prince could not find her. He is going to give a second ball in the hope that she will come again. Perhaps she will not, and then we will have our chance." [The Cinder Maid;reconstructed from various European sources by Joseph Jacobs]
