In the year 2018, there was a girl, Ella, who is 17 years old, is heading home after her father got married to a woman who is now her stepmother and has two stepsisters, Joanne and Kelly. A year later, Ella's father passed away while he was going on a trip.
Each day I come back from school and have all of these chores that I am told to do. My stepmother and her daughters treat me as a maid, but I don't speak up for myself because I am a kind person even to those who are disrespectful to me.
I head up the attic which is my room and start my homework. I then overhear my stepmother talking about a dance we were invited to. There were footsteps I hear which were getting louder until I realize that it's my stepmother.
"I have been informed that we have been invited to a dance with a very special host," my stepmother said. I got so excited until what I was told next."You won't go because you have to clean the house," Joanne said mockingly.
I was very angry but not surprised because this is how I get treated until I realized I had a beautiful dress to go to the dance. I headed to the dance I tried to stay hidden until I realized I shouldn't be treated like this when I help this family I'm not even a part of.
I later try to search for my stepmother to tell her that I will not help her with any chores because she is also capable of doing it herself. I tell her that I will stay home to work hard so I can get a scholarship to go to college and leave this family for good.
