  1. Touch: Chapter 3

    Nadia got to work on training herself as much theory and aural skills as she could. She bought a self-teaching book on ear training, and began the exercises. However, not having a piano to base her pitches was a real difficulty, almost to the point she began wandering around the city to find a piano shop, or tavern. Pianos were certainly available, but she was not allowed to play them, especially if people were around.

    "Well, may I come early in the morning to play?" she

  2. Touch: Chapter 2

    On Saturday morning, Nadia put on her most formal dress, and having practiced a little solfege went out to find a carriage who could find the address she was looking for.

    It was not at all where she expected. The carriage came to a stunning semi-mansion apartment in one of the richest areas of the city. Getting out, she approached the large door apprehensively, and knocked.

    A tall, elderly servant came to the door, and bid her come in. It was the same one who was on the

  4. A Cinderella Story: Chapter 9 Part II (denouement)

    "STOP! Shut your mouths! Get away from her!"
    Nicholas was never more angry in his life. Such abuse was foreign to him, and he couldn't imagine how this girl could cope with it.
    "You wicked people! All you ever live for is yourselves! Get out! Leave us alone!" he turned on all of them, and made them leave the school, except his friends. This he told them calmly,

  5. A Cinderella Story: Chapter 9 Part I

    Ella's weekend was quiet for the most part. She was asleep when her stepsisters came home around 6 in the morning, and they slept nearly the whole Saturday away. When Ella woke up, the daylight revealed to her how changed her surroundings were: the floors, windows, and furniture were perfectly clean and dusted. The "aids" who helped her the night before apparently had also done her chores for her, to Ella's happy surprise. She relaxed the whole day in the house, besides going to a store
