Adriana’s new stepmother considered her an excess baggage. Through cunning manipulation, ipinaubaya siya nito sa pinsan nito—filthy rich Jordan Atienza. He was tall, dark, and definitely—No, hindi niya ia-apply rito ang salitang “handsome.” “Handsome” was for movie stars and too tame to be applied to Jordan.
And Jordan was anything but tame. He was a beast! Hitler personified. At kinasusuklaman niya ito sa akusasyon nitong sisirain niya ang pagsasama ng daddy niya at ng bagong asawa nito.
Now she considered herself Cinderella with a wicked stepmother, one wicked stepsister (sa katauhan ng pinsan niya). At ang bahay ni Jordan bilang prison tower niya. (Oh, that’s Rapunzel’s!). Anyway, would Jordan qualify as her Prince Charming? Hmp. Duda siya roon. Beast, baka pa. (Oh, dear, she was really mixing up her fairy tales!)
