    The Oak Garden Building | Short Story 2021

    As I gaze out my window at the sky while watching my children sleep,  the brisk winds remind me of a building that I once lived in,  wherein I saw, sensed, and were horrified,  an encounter with which I'm not comfortable speaking.  Fortunately, everything turned up okay. My name is Herman, but my friends called me Er, and the following is a story of what occurred to me 23 years ago. I have had a passion for writing since a kid. Now my guardian thinks I can go even farther. Consequently, they help me submit an authorship application and enrol in further linguistic, writing, and journalistic courses. Little did I realise that I'd be given a job to help me improve my abilities while simultaneously taking part-time writing courses to support my income. I was a young twenty-year-old at the time. Too young, yet inquisitive and willing to try new things. As a young author, the chance pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and acquire essential experience.  Pay attention to the sound

    Disney story | The Cinderella story

    I was so in love with fairy tale stories since a little kid, especially the Cinderella story. As shown on the Disney channel since I was a teenager, I remember how excited I was to see the graphic, dresses, songs, and magical things. That indeed had created my imagination towards a magical world, as if it exists. Too bad, it's only a fairy tale. But still, it's enjoyable to see such a story.

    The Synopsis of Cinderella story (Disney story 1950 film):



    Once upon a time, there was a beautiful girl named Cinderella. Her widowed father marries Lady Tremaine. Therefore, she became Cinderella's stepmother. Cinderella had two stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizella. However, her father, Cinderella's father, dies shortly thereafter. Lady Tremaine was jealous of Cinderella's beauty. Therefore, she and her two daughters make her lives like their servants and make her live in the attic, in her own house.

    Even she was mistreated in her own house, she still remains kind and doing her chores every day. Her only friend in the attic was the bird and the mice. And she always protects her friends from her evil stepmother's cat, Lucifer. 

    One day, the King wants his son to get married so that he could have grandchildren. However, the prince disagreed with it. Despite that, the King still invites all of the eligible maidens in the kingdom to a royal ball so that the Prince can choose his wife. Cinderella's family also was invited. And she was so excited to attend the ball. However, her stepmother and stepsister afraid if she will outstand, then they are. Therefore, the stepmother intentionally keeps Cinderella busy to have no time to fix the mother dress that she wanted to use for the ball.

    While she was busy, her friend, Jaq, and Gus, also the other animal, decide to fix up the dress for her. She finished her work, and the dress was beautifully done. However, when she attempted to go with her stepmother, her stepsister was jealous and angrily tear her dress into pieces, and they leave her all alone in that house.

    She was heartbroken and flees to the garden in tears. In there, a magical thing happened. In turn, she met her Fairy Godmother, transform Jaq, Gus, and other mice into four white horses, and a pumpkin into a coach. She also gives Cinderella a beautiful and sparkling dress and glass slippers to go to the ball. But, with the condition, the magic will end at midnight. Therefore, she has to come home before midnight.

    As Cinderella arrives at the ball, she looks so beautiful among everyone there; even her stepmother and stepsister do not even recognize her. The Prince saw her, and he falls in love at first sight. They both dancing in the middle of everyone. However, when the clock rings, she flees from the palace but eventually loses her slipper on the staircase. The Prince chases her but only left with one of her shoes.

    Once Cinderella and her friends arrived at home, they all turn into normal. However, she realizes that her other shoes do not disappear with the magic, so she kept them. While at the palace, the Prince planning to search for the owner of the glass slipper. For whoever fits it, he will marry her. Once the stepmother heard the news, she asked Cinderella to get them ready. Unfortunately, while doing that, she overheard Cinderella humming the waltz from the ball. She realizes that Cinderella is a mystery girl.

    Therefore, she tricked Cinderella and locked her in her room in the attic. At the same time, the Prince had come to their house. Meanwhile, Gus and Jaq helped Cinderella to steal the key for Cinderella. Luckily, while the Prince is about to leave, Cinderella came out of the attic and wanted to try out the shoes.

    The evil stepmothers trip the person who carries the slipper, and eventually, it shatters. Everyone was surprised, but Cinderella takes out one of the second slippers from her pocket and wears it. It was perfectly fitting. The Prince took Cinderella, and they get married and lives happily ever after.

    THE END.

    Other Cinderella story (based on my opinion):

    However, the origin story of Cinderella is quite scary and unsuitable for the children's stories. Often, we only care about the good side of the story and by that, let just focus on that.

    But, here the things, there was a lot of films made based on Cinderella. A modern world and also a magical element in the film. But, whatever it is, let us check on several movies that had been made based on Cinderella's story.

    My favourite films based on Cinderella:

    Ever After A Cinderella story, 1998

    Ever after is a 1998 American romantic drama starred by Drew Barrymore as Cinderella. But in this film, she is Danielle. It's the same concept as the Disney film in 1950; her father marries her soon-to-be stepmother, Baroness. As he departed for business, her father suffered a fatal heart attack just as he approached the gate. 

    However, in this film, it's more realistic, no singing, no bird or mice involve, and no magical thing happened, especially the Godmother. It was settling in 1502 Renaissance-era France. The meeting of Danielle and Prince Henry was also unpredictable; the first time their met was unexpected. As in Disney film, the stepsister was evil, but in Ever After, only Marguerite is the jealousy stepsister while Jacqueline is more sympathetic and kind-hearted. 

    It is a happy ending story, but the plot was much more interesting. Danielle is a brave woman, brilliant and helpful person, as she freed her family servant Maurice, whom her stepmother had sold into slavery. Truthfully, it was a mix of sad, funny, romantic, and beautiful films, if I may say. In my opinion, it's the best film based on Cinderella.

    A cinderella story 2004

    Well, this is a modern way of telling the Cinderella story. I would not say that it's really a 100% cinderella story, but to include a stepsister and stepmother, it just a concept, I think. This film is a 2004 American starred by Hilary Duff. It's a modern Cinderella film, which involves two pen pals who don't know each other but plan to meet during the Halloween dance high school.

    Hillary Duff, like Samantha, works as a waitress at the diner in the San Fernando Valley run by her stepmother, a greedy one. But she was really close with the other waitress in the diner as if they take care of Sam. Well, Sam did not only bullied by her stepmother but also at the high school. 

    She struggles to fit in the high school, where she was bullied by Shelby, the cheerleader. At the same time, she had a pen pal named Nomad, which his identity is a popular guy and Shelby's ex-boyfriend. So, they plan to meet up during a Halloween dance. But, as she knows that actually, Nomad is Austin, Shelby's ex-boyfriend, she was shocked but too bad, Austin didn't manage to see her face as she had to go. Well, that part is where she was considered a mystery girl.

    Unfortunately, her stepsister accidentally saw the email between her and Nomad; that was actually Austin. They told Shelby and exposed her and humiliated her in front of everybody. Well, that turns Samantha into tears and embarrassment while Austin did not support her at all. Poor Samantha. It's not the end; you need to watch the movie by yourself. The story is more likely a romantic comedy with a modern world.

    Samantha firebacks Austin for not defending her.

    Well, so far, that's the only movie which I think is very good to watch. It's a beautiful story and a good movie to watch with family or yourself (I guess). Nevertheless, let's learn from Cinderella's story. No matter how people mistreated them, she still is kind-hearted, but there was a limit when you can no longer deal with it, don't keep, stand for yourself, don't let others bullied you.

    How the conversation started 12 years ago | seewriteandpost.com

    There's a quote says by a famous person, "If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana. Twelve years ago, I had a crush on one person. He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college. At the age of 18, I got an offer to school away from my hometown.  Because I kept my feeling for so long, sometimes when I return to my hometown for a semester break, I will give him a present. Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
