The fill-in wife

I used to think of myself as Cinderella. I have the evil step father, step sister and even an awesome grandmother who may or may not be a fairy. I was so sure my prince charming will come looking too dashing to stare at and so brave, he'll whisk me away from my horrible life. But as usual life slapped me in the face reminding me not too kindly that my life was far from a fairy tale.

 

I am the thrashcan girl and this is my story.
