As Ellie embarks on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, she faces an uncertain future, but with Aunt Jody’s unwavering support and her own inner strength, she’s ready to reclaim the life that was rightfully hers. Now let’s explore Becca’s story and the challenges she faces in fulfilling her father’s last wishes.

Ellie’s stepmother, Janice, takes over as caretaker when she loses both of her parents, who have been separated for years. Janice controls Ellie’s life, forcing her to live in the shadow of her half-brothers. But Ellie is forced to act after learning about her Aunt Jody’s secret.

My father took on a new role in my life when I lost my mother at the age of three. Having no grandparents on either side, he was the center of my universe.

Aunt Jody, my father’s sister, was still with us, but she had moved far away and emigrated a long time ago.

So I only knew my father.

However, when I first started school, my father brought Janice and her two sons—my future stepmother and step-siblings—home.

At first, it went smoothly. Janice was really kind to me; every night she combed my hair until it was shiny and straight. She wanted my presence at her and Dad’s wedding.

“Oh, Ellie,” she said, unable to address me to Eleanor. “You must be my flower escort!” You must be my flower, my dear darling; Jackson and Avery will be the ring bearers.”

Janice kept me updated as she and her father prepared for the wedding. She took me and the boys to taste the flavors of the wedding cake and showed me the color scheme and flowers she preferred.

Avery exclaimed, “I like peanut butter cake,” as she wiped the frosting on me.

“And what do you like, Ellie?” Jane asked.

I said, “Chocolate,” appreciating her attention.

I was relieved that Janice wasn’t the horrible stepmom I’d imagined her to be, though I still dreaded introducing my father to our new blended family.
In the end, all I felt was my mother’s absence.

But then my father started complaining of chest symptoms shortly after celebrating my sixteenth birthday.

One day he exclaimed, “Oh, Ellie,” as we shopped at the supermarket and picked out everything Janice had on her grocery list.

“What is wrong?” I asked as I watched him clutch his chest.

When we got home, he told me, “I’ll be fine, El.” “I’ve been overdoing it lately.

My father died at home a few weeks later; he had a heart condition that didn’t show up until that day at the grocery store. However, my father refused to see a doctor.

That’s when Janice turned into the nasty stepmother I’d feared for years, and everything about her changed.

“No, Eleanor,” she replied one morning as she made breakfast for Jackson and Avery. “I found Jackson needs your bedroom. It is significantly larger and needs space for its exercise equipment.
I will spend the large sum of money your father left for the boy’s accommodation.”

I was unable to object. Janice never let me hear the end of it, no matter how hard I tried to defend my own interests. She kept talking about how grateful I should be that she let me stay in the house. While some days were quiet and peaceful, others were stormy and tense.

I gave my life to Janice for two years.
There were very few memories of my father’s life after she completely renovated the house to suit her taste.

“Janice, where is the clock in the living room?” I asked her one morning.

The clock was something I adored. It used to scare me when I was younger, but my father informed me that it had been in the family for many years.

“When the bell rings,” he continued, “you must remember your family.”

However, one day it just disappeared.

Janice replied, “I sold it,” enjoying her smoothie. It was out of place with the overall design. Continue now. Isn’t today the last day of class?

When I came to school, I felt like a piece of me had disappeared. While I didn’t expect to feel the same way about the clock, I did when my parents died.

I texted Aunt Jody, “Thinking of you.” Janice took over everything.
I will have to look for a job soon.

Due to the time difference, I didn’t think she would answer.

However, Aunt Jody called me just before the end of the day.

She asked, “Are you alone?” before greeting me.

I said, “Yeah, I’m still in school.”

“I read your message. You need to leave before they find out you’re telling the truth,” she remarked.

“What on earth are you talking about?”

They didn’t show it to you. Elle, your father left you everything.
It shocks me. You have the right to inherit the property. Janice was trying to get the upper hand by hiding it from you.”

It hit me like a freight train, this revelation.
I didn’t realize it and I was wronged, but all those years I lived under the same roof with Janice and her sons, I was the rightful heir to my father’s inheritance.

“How could she do that?” I succeeded, speaking barely above a whisper.

“Take it easy,” Aunt Jody reassured her. “I’ll talk to our lawyer now. I’ll start the celebration and secure the property so only you can enter.”

I nodded, fully aware that he couldn’t see me.

She said, “Leave the house tonight.” “My lawyer will get to work immediately and Janice will be notified shortly. I need to know you left the house safely. I’ll get you a ticket to see me as soon as I can.”

I will be as I promised. I wanted to get home as soon as possible, pack my things, and go to my friend Mariah’s.

I walked into the kitchen just before I left my childhood home and wrote a note to my stepmother and stepbrothers. It wasn’t a grievance, but rather an expression of strength, especially in light of what was about to happen.

I have a right to an inheritance that you denied me and used to exercise control over me. Take this as my farewell. I will take what is rightfully mine whether you agree or not.

he placed the note on the kitchen table as a memento of my departure and the beginning of my journey to reclaim the life my father envisioned for me.

I have no idea what will happen to Janice, but if Aunt Jody gets her wish, I have no doubt she will be out of my house very soon. For now, I’ll stay with Mariah while I consider my options.

How would you answer if you were me?

Now I will tell you another story. Becca tries to get her family together to visit her father, Jonah, who has stage 4 leukemia and is steadily declining. However, when her aunt discovers Jonah’s final wishes, they make a concerted effort to retrieve all of his possessions.

At the conclusion of Ellie’s story, we witness her journey of self-discovery, resilience, and reclaiming her rightful heritage. Despite constant manipulation and mistreatment by her stepmother Janice, Ellie’s encounter with her Aunt Jody’s revelation becomes a pivotal moment in her life. With Aunt Jody’s support, Ellie takes decisive action to stand up to Janice and assert her rights, symbolizing her leaving the house with a note confirming her claim to her father’s inheritance. As Ellie embarks on a journey for justice and a new beginning, her courage and determination serve as an inspiration. The future holds both uncertainty and possibility for Ellie, but with the support of loved ones like Aunt Jody and friends like Mariah, she is empowered to forge her own path and reclaim the life her father intended for her.
