Cinderella Syndrome 3
No sooner were the ceremonies of the wedding over the stepmother began to show herself in her true colors. She could not bear the good qualities of this pretty girl, because they made her own daughters appear the more odious. She employed Cinderella; in the meanest work of the house:-- She scoured the dishes, tables, etc., and cleaned madam's chamber, and those of misses. She slept in a sorry garret, on a wretched straw bed...[France; Charles Perrault]
