She wore an old, ratty, and smelly shirt and a torn pair of shorts."Oh Cinders!" yelled Isabelle's horrid stepmother Cherimoya who apparently thought she was still 13 years old and could fit into anything.Isabelle let out a deep breath. Then there at the top of the staircase was her stepmother in a grey dress about 3 sizes too small."Cinders, move your lazy butt! It's getting cold up here."
