We’re still on my fairytale novella, Someone Else’s Shoes, that’ll be in the box set Once Upon Another World.
For those catching up, it’s set in the same spellster series world as To Target the Heart and In Pain and Blood, just in another empire and back a few generations from what I call “the modern timeline” of those novels.
It’s an F/F take on Cinderella with a trans princess.
We’re carrying on from last week, after Alla’s stepsister, Tamara, upended the watery contents of a bucket all over Alla and mocked her… (punctuation slightly altered to fit)
Tamara towered over Alla; even with them both standing upright, her stepsister was taller by at least a foot. “Looks like you’re going to be here all day. What will mother say?” Giving a tweak to the tip of Alla’s ear, Tamara sauntered deeper into the mansion.
Alla rubbed at her ear as she watched her stepsister depart. How she loathed the distinct points and sensitivity. What use did such ears give their owners beyond a means to single out elves and torture them? Better hearing? It hardly seemed worth the trouble.
With the tips of her ears still smarting, Alla sank back to her knees and set to work mopping up the water.
