Extracts from this document...


A Modern Cinderella Short story by Andrei Sabah Once upon a time there was a beautiful lady called Ann. She lived with her mother, her father, a brother and a sister. Ann was the fair white sheep of the family. Both her parents were hypocrites, her father used to tell something to one person and another thing to the other, always for his convenience.
