I felt the emptiness of it; and then all at once I imagined the children joyful running from ride to ride and the hearing the soft humming of the circus carousel, even seeing myself as a child begging my mother one more time before it was time to go. When I arrived, I stood in door frame where I was asked to wait by an older lady with a sweet voice. Then Suddenly, a man that can tower any human being stepped out of an office and approached me, I could have at that moment, feeling as if I’ve already done something wrong. I was frightened by his stature, and began to smile ear to ear out of fear. But to my surprise, he gave jumped as if seen a ghost and began to laugh crazily.
Men aren’t ever portrayed as someone who sews or helps their daughters with something like that. Not having a father in the picture because they’re sewing would be viewed traditional. Fathers are viewed as masculine so that’s why Amelia’s mom is the only one there to help. In a traditional boy book, there’s always a dad building his son something or helping his son build something cool. Girls are never allowed to play with anything dangerous.

She had delivered that baby with work and skill, not magic spells, and Alyce should have been able to do it but could not. She had failed.” (Pg. 70, 2nd paragraph) After this event, she runs away from the village to John Dark’s inn, and learns that Jane Sharp came to talk to Magister Reese.
Dorothy will not let the Wicked Witch take the slippers. Most people would just give the slippers to the Wicked Witch because they are faced with the fear that she possesses. Often people will let other people take over them weather it is your boss, parents, even a friend. People need to realize like Dorothy, to not allow people to walk over and control oneself. Dorothy never gives the slippers, which shows her maturity and ability to stand up for herself (Nathan).
Everytime she was told to do something she would say hell, and everyone would then scream watch your mouth, which was a small laugh I enjoyed. She was a bit morbid at times, but I think that is how most children are because they have not yet learned to filter what they say yet. For instance, when she just randomly asked what a skin flap was, and everyone was beating around the bush, because they did not want to have to explain what everything really was to a child. Or when she wanted to to the story of ghosts before bed. I also enjoyed when she was on the bus and the man tried to rip her chain off, and she bit the man.
Having seen this symbolism, one might wonder what else the slipper could symbolize. The glass slipper symbolizes the hardships that Cinderella goes through and that no matter what weight she is put under she never breaks. There is never a point in any story where Cinderella is not kind. Even in Grimm where her stepsisters get their eyes pecked out, it was not Cinderella who did it. It was her mother’s soul seeking vengeance for the wrongdoings of the sisters.
As she walked through the woods, Briella could feel her heart beating. She thought of her dog, Coco, and how he was such a clown. He would be bouncing through the house, you would think there was an elephant running through the hall. She wished she could find her tiny, brown chihuahua. A tear rolled down Briella 's cheek as the warm air blew at her and the leaves danced around her ankles.
The crowd was slient for a moment. However, it bursted out even louder shouts and cries as they hear the knock on the front door. “No! The devil has arrived!” “Oh lord, dear Old Major save me!” “Mommy, mommy, are we all going to die?” It was the little mocking bird again, her silvery voice was especially outstanding among the animals. No doubt Napoleon heard every word of the bird.

“Just as she said it, a horrible thought came to her. The thought was so embarrassing that she turned red in the face and her eyes dilated and her feet jumped up, upsetting the valise in the corner. The instant the valise moved, the newspaper top she had over the basket under it rose with a snarl and Pitty Sing, the cat, sprang onto Bailey’s shoulder” (O’Connor 63).
