Cinderella Adaptation Essay

Cindy, a young princess, woke up to a noisy downstairs. It was unusual that she could hear the noise from her room, an attic of the lavish mansion that was left behind by her dead mother. The noise and the yelling were coming from her two stepsisters who, for the past couple of hours, had been arguing about the dresses they could wear to their senior prom. “Oh, dresses!” Cindy thought to herself. She had completely forgotten about what she was going to wear for prom.

As she walked downstairs, half excited and half worried about the dress, her cruel stepmother, Olivia, yelled out her name summoning her to the kitchen. Swiftly but in a timid tone, Cindy walked across the hallway leading to the kitchen, only to see her two stepsisters in beautiful and dazzling dresses. She, however, knew that Olivia, her cruel stepmother who had disposed of all her cute clothes, would not let her anything like what her two stepsisters wore. “You will be working at the store on Friday night!” Olivia said, “But…” Cindy interrupted. However, Olivia shut her out before she could get another word in. Friday night was prom night. Cindy was sad. She had no one to talk to, and so, she sought solace at her mother’s grave. As she sat at the grave in agony and distress, her mother sent her, Martha, a fairy Godmother, who in her hands, held a blue, sparkling dress. “But I will not attend prom anyway?” Cindy mumbled. 

Martha had already vanished by the time Cindy tried on her new dress. As she walked into the backyard admiring her dress, Cindy saw a tall, handsome man with dark brown eyes, strolling past her stepmother’s mansion. “My name is Prince, it’s short for Princeton, you are such a pretty face, I would like you to be my prom Queen on prom night, and…” he talked and talked, but Cindy did not say much. This made Cindy very excited. She could not hold back her tears of Joy. She, was, however, not sure of what to do to her shift at Olivia’s store. She did not care anymore. On prom night, Prince pulled over at the Mansion, and Cindy’s stepsisters were down with envy, upon seeing Cindy with the handsome Prince, the man every girl in the city admired.
