Elsa’s story unfolds as a moving account of family feuds and the complexities of blended families. From the beginning, he faces the challenges of integrating into his father’s new family dynamic following his remarriage to Jane. Despite her efforts to bond with her half-sister Amy and foster a sense of belonging, Elsa finds herself marginalized and excluded from their bond. A strained relationship with her stepmother further compounds her feelings of alienation and rejection in her own home.

As the key event of the ball approaches, Elsa’s anticipation is tinged with both excitement and apprehension. Her determination to get her dream dress through hard work and dedication reflects her resilience and independence. However, her hopes are dashed when Jane callously destroys her prom dress, symbolizing the depth of her stepmother’s cruelty and resentment towards her.

Elsa has to put up with her stepsister and stepmother who don’t want her when her father remarries. But Elsa’s father intervenes when he puts her ball gown in danger.

A week before my prom, which was my last school dance, Jane took on the role of a bad stepmother.

Six years ago, my dad and Jane got married after a lengthy divorce from my mother.

Amy, Jane’s daughter, also moved in with her.

My dad said, “You and Amy are the same age.” “I think you two will get along really well.

“I don’t think so,” I replied. “She barely said a word to me.

Dad said, “Elsa.” “Give it time.”

Since my school was closer to home and she believed it would help us bond, Jane enrolled Amy there.

At first, Jane tried to be a nice stepmother, even trying to get me to attend her and Amy’s meetings.

However, as we got older, they grew closer and eventually shut me out completely.

When we went out for ice cream, Dad replied, “Maybe Amy is going through something,” and I told him.

“Maybe he just needs more time with his mother.

I came to terms with this and realized that although Jane referred to me as her daughter, I would never be her daughter.

Then, as our final year of education approached, prom quickly rose to the top of the social agenda.

I was looking forward to prom because Mason and I were finally dating and I knew it was going to be an amazing day, even if I didn’t want to tell my dad.

I also knew that although my father would finance the purchase of my ideal outfit, I wanted to earn it myself.

I figured if Dad bought yours, he’d have to buy Amy’s too.

To increase the budget for the dress, I took extra shifts at the restaurant where I worked. A few weeks before prom, I included childcare in my schedule. I finally had enough saved up for my ideal dress.

Dad patiently waited for me to try it out after being dropped off at the store. He smiled at me when I came out.

“Oh, Elsa,” she said. “You look beautiful my love.

All I asked of him was this.

“Are you sure you want to pay for it yourself?” When were we at the checkout, Dad asked. “Because I will in no time.

I refused and bought the dress anyway.

I smiled and said, “But you can buy me waffles.”

My idyllic fantasy was then thwarted.

I entered the residence a few hours later after my job at the restaurant. Amy and Jane were cleaning Grandma’s silver teapot in the living room.

using scraps of my clothes.

I shouted.

“Honey,” Jane asked with a worried expression. “What is wrong?”

“That’s my dress!” Picking up a piece, I said.

“Oh!” cried Jane. “Was that your prom dress?”

“You did it?” When I couldn’t breathe properly, I asked.

“Well, yes,” Jane smiled. However, I mistakenly believed that I was cutting up used clothing. It was not a sight worthy of a ball. So I figured I’d use it to polish windows and silver.

It was more than I could bear. I started to cry and the tears quickly ran down my clothes.

I could hear Dad’s heavy footsteps somewhere in the house, but obviously not Jane.

Because she got to her feet and walked over to me.

“Now, now, Elsa,” she said. You couldn’t be more beautiful than Amy; you should have known better. Amy will be the prom queen. You are unable to overcome her.”

I looked at her and tried to figure out how she could be so mean to me. Jane didn’t seem to care about me at all, even though we weren’t strangers.

Maybe not.

However, her face turned pale.

“What did you just say?” Dad called me from behind.

With a thick and heavy rage, my father fell silent in the room.

He asked, “Did you do it, Jane?”

He didn’t wait for an answer.

“I can fix it,” Jane tripped.

I knew it wasn’t the exact outfit, but Dad burst into his and Jane’s bedroom wearing clothes that matched her wedding dress in color.

He tore his clothes with his hands and filled the silence with the sound of tears.

Jane squealed, clearly thinking the dress was her wedding dress.

“Dad,” I said trying to calm him down.

But my father just shook his head. He threw scraps of clothing at her.

Fix it, he ordered.

My dad wasn’t crazy; even though he was furious, he couldn’t tear Jane’s wedding dress.

My dad wasn’t crazy; even though he was furious, he couldn’t tear Jane’s wedding dress.

“I’m done,” he declared. “You can’t keep hurting my child.

After the argument, I had fewer prom dreams. However, I stopped to think about what it meant to me.

It should have worked like a charm. It hurt more than words could say, to think of missing it, of being robbed of that joy by an unnecessary act of jealousy.

My father picked me up from school on the day of the prom, the box in the car.

“Honey, these are your clothes,” he said. “Go have fun tonight, please. Let’s do our hair now.”

My father informed me on the way home that he wanted to divorce Jane.

“Elsa, I’ve been ignoring the way she treated you for too long. It’s over now. He smiled, “The future is for you and me and the fights we’ll have in college.
