Letter from a Stepsister - A Twisted Fairy Tale

Dear Ella,

When he came with the glass slipper, I was afraid it would fit. My heart sank as he slipped it onto your delicate foot.

I’m heartbroken because you’re no longer here. Now, I can’t even apologize for being so evil. I really didn’t mean any of it. But, I couldn’t let anyone see how I really felt. I wasn’t ready to admit it to myself. Every time I felt a longing, I’d give you another chore. I hoped that the dirt and cinder would mask your beauty. It didn’t. It actually made me love you more because despite all we did, you never stopped smiling.

You’re beautiful… inside and out. I wish I could’ve told you that.

You’re his princess now. He better treat you right or he’ll see just how evil I can be.

Love always,
