Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, there lived a young girl named Cinderella. She was a kind-hearted and gentle soul, but sadly, her life was far from perfect. ever since her beloved father passed away, Cinderella had been forced to live with her cruel stepmother and her two step-sisters, Anastasia and Drizella. Her stepmother and stepsisters were quite unkind to Cinderella. They made her do all the household chores and treated her like a servant, while they lived a life of luxury. But despite her difficult circumstances, Cinderella never stopped dreaming of a better life.

One day, a grand proclamation echoed throughout the kingdom. The prince had announced a magnificent ball, inviting every maiden in the land to attend. The entire kingdom was buzzing with excitement. Cinderella couldn't help but dream about being at the ball and dancing with the prince. When she excitedly approached her stepmother requesting permission to attend the ball, she was met with disdain and cruelty. Her stepmother deemed her unworthy and insisted that she would only bring shame upon their family. Cinderella's heart sank, and her dreams seemed shattered.
As Cinderella sat alone in her room, unable to hold back her tears, a soft glow appeared before her. It was her fairy godmother, who had been watching over her all along. With a wave of her wand, the fairy godmother transformed Cinderella's ragged clothes into a breathtaking gown, and her worn-out shoes became sparkling glass slippers. However, the fairy godmother's magic came with a warning. Cinderella had to return home before midnight, for that was when the spell would wear off. With gratitude in her heart, Cinderella thanked her fairy godmother and promised to do as she was told.
