******* paused ******* Have you all heard the classic Cinderella story? Ivy is a perfect example of a real-life Cinderella story. She lives with her evil adoptive family. An evil father and two evil siblings, a brother and sister. Her adoptive mother is the kindness and actually treats Annabel as her daughter. She was actually the one to pick her. Her adoptive siblings always make her do stuff for them, they always use the excuse 'well, we are older.' She was too naïve. Ivy is 20 and a fashion designer. She started when she was 18 and then it was going well. She earned enough money to move away from her home and buy a small apartment for herself. But now, her business is decreasing, and she is earning less money and is in debt. She is only two steps shy of getting kicked out of her apartment and she would have only two choices left to live: 1) Back with her adoptive family. 2) On the streets. What will happen when the CEO of Allenson Corporations offers her a helping hand, willing to give her everything she wants, -A roof over her head -A warm bed to sleep on -Food -Clean water -Her business All of that and so much more, but of course nothing in life is free. He just wants one thing in exchange... Her... Selling herself to the CEO just to save her fashion business. What a risking thing to do. ***** [January 18th, 2017] [12:30 A. M] Crunch! Crunch! Crunch! A tall man walked up to the young pale female who was wrapped up in her blankets covered in snow. He slowly crouched in front of the girl and placed a warm hand gently on her forehead. Feeling the warm hand, Ivy came from her slumber and her emerald green eyes started into his warm brown eyes.
