This was the first time I would be going home and seeing all of my other college friends who were also home. I couldn’t wait to see who has changed and how college was treating everyone. I was looking forward to doing nothing but eat, sleep, shop, and hang out with friends and family.
The time I took a memorial trip to Branson Jackie Chan once tweeted Family isn’t whose blood you carry It’s who you love and who loves you back. I want to tell you about the time I took a trip to Branson that I will never forget. Some of you probably took an amazing trip you remember. Well I am going to share with you how I met my adopted grandparents, the Christmas days leading up to the trip, and what we did while we were there.

One of the biggest experiences I have gone through in my life is my sisters and me being in foster care our whole lives. Our first time being in foster care was when I our mom left us over our grandpa’s house while handling business. While being over my grandpa’s house we played games, laughed, talked and baked cakes.

The bell rang and as soon as I got out my stomach suddenly flipped on me and I started to throw up in the trash, thank god nobody saw me other than my art teacher Miss Noof I mean I wouldn’t like to be called “Puke Girl” for the rest of my elementary years.

After enduring cruel treatment from her own family for years, Ashputtle finally gets her own happily ever after and her family members receive what they deserve: cruel punishment. In the story, on page 858, the text states, “On the day of Ashputle’s wedding, the two sisters came and tried to ingratiate themselves and shared in her happiness…both sisters were punished with blindness to the end of their days for being so wicked and false” (Grimm). The stepsisters were so forbidding and cruel towards Ashputtle that in the end, receive what they deserve which doesn’t happen in some of the other Cinderella stories worldwide. The Grimm brothers chose to make their retelling of the story have an unusual ending (most just end with Cinderella getting married) and in doing so, unintentionally exemplified the archetypal narrative pattern of a just end that rewards good and punishes evil. But this doesn’t just appear once in the story.
