Cinderella Should Have Been A B*tch

Prologue

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, the shit hit the fan on hot and sunny day. Quite literally, and definitely on purpose, a rather large handful of horse shit was tossed onto the fan leading into the ladies’ drawing room…

Chapter 1 – Sh*t Hit The Fan

Cinderella smiled as she looked at the heaping horse shit she was shoveling out of their animal yard.  Used to the stench and the filth, she leaned down and grabbed a massive handful.  She walked into the house that used to belong to her father and headed towards the screeching of her step-sisters…

Chapter 2 – Murder

Cinderella slipped into her stepmother’s room and made her way over to the vanity.  It was an antique her father brought home for Cinderella’s birth mother on one of his first successful trading ventures.  The vanity had several secret compartments built in, but they were disguised by the decorative carvings.

Chapter 3 – Secrets and Blackmail

Her father’s will apparently saved Cinderella’s life, and it explained why she was never beaten and still at least had some food and medicine for when she fell ill.

Chapter 4 – Allies and Plots

Cinderella smiled to herself that night, knowing the time for change had come. She now had enough information in her hands to reliably start her plan to become independent and take over the family business. But she wanted to rope in some allies. She fell asleep planning how to word her business proposal to a potential ally…
