Alright, now this is my first ever fanfiction and I know it is crap, so be kind and review. It is based around the movie A Cinderella Story. Meredith is a Straight A student who everyone bullies. Derek is the most Popular Boy in school. Can Meredith get her prince? or will her fairytale not come true?

Once upon a time, in a far away kingdom, lived a little girl and her windowed father.

OK it wasn't that long ago and it wasn't a far away kingdom, It was Seattle. But to me Seattle was my Kingdom.

I was my dad's best friend, and he was mine. Although being raised by a man put me behind in the make-up and fashion departments, I never felt like I missed out on anything. I was the luckiest girl in the world.

My dad owned the coolest diner in the whole of Seattle, Well around where I lived anyway. I loved hanging out there. It was the kind of place where d-i-e-t was a four letter word and grease came at no additional charge. At Thacher's, everyone felt like family.

''Make a wish princess'' Bailey smiled.

What did I need a wish for? I had amazing friends and the coolest dad.

But I guess my dad thought I needed one more thing. Ellis.

Along with my new step-mom came her twin daughters, Erica and Rose. My out-of-step sisters.

But as long as my dad was happy so was I. We were going to be one big happy family. Unfortunately this was no fairytale.

8 year old Meredith and her father, Thacher, sat on Meredith's bed and he read her bedtime story.

''He took her hand, and he kissed it,Then he swooped her up onto his horse. And the beautiful princess and the handsome prince rode off to his castle, where they lived happily ever after.'' Thacher playfully said to his daughter.

''Do fairy tails come true, Dad?'' Meredith asked giggly.

''Well, no. But dreams come true.'' Thacher told her truthfully.

''Do you have a dream?''

''Yeah. My dream is that you'll grow up and go to college and then maybe someday you'll build your own castle.''

''Where do princesses go to college?''

''They go..'' unsure what to say and then thought of it. ''...where the princes go. They go to Princeton.'' He then turned serious.

But, Meredith, you know, fairy tales aren't Just about finding handsome princes. They're about fulfilling your dreams and about standing up for what you believe in. As i always say, never let the fear of striking out...

''Keep you from playing the game'' she interrupted.

'' Right'' her father smiled at her. He then told her that to Just remember, if she look carefully,the book he told full of fairy tales to her contains important things that she may need to know later in life.

The both smiles at each other and hugged. Meredith felt so happy and peaceful until everything started to shack. A earthquake hit. Her room swung side to side violently.

My kingdom came crumbling down when the earthquake hit Seattle.

The sound of Ellis shouting for help made my father go and leave me to tend to Ellis. He slowly let go of my hand and ran to help her. I looked over to see the castle snow globe fall to the ground and shatter.

I lost my best friend and from then on, the only fairy tales in my life were the ones i read about in books.

Since my father didn't leave a will,my stepmother got everything. The house, the diner,and to her dismay, me. She moved me up into the attic for my bedroom as I sat on my bed in the dusty and cold room. I realized she controlled me now. I was Ellis's.

OK now this was my first ever chapter. So review and tell me if I should carry on. Thank you
