Today’s post is for Six Sentence Sunday, a blogging experience where participants post six sentences from something they’re working on or something they’ve published. You can visit their site to check out the other participants or to join in the fun.
This week’s post is from Stepmothers Anonymous.
Abbey wasn’t always a wicked stepmother. Once upon a time, she was just an average, overweight single mother, whose life revolved around her two daughters. Then the handsome and charming Bradley Mauer came into her life and swept her off her feet. Abbey was ready to live “happily-ever-after” – until reality set in, bringing with it an incorrigible stepdaughter, newfound telekinetic powers and betrayal by friends and family. Not even the support of her stepmothers’ group was enough to belay her life from meeting the same fate as the fairy tale villainess. So with few options left to her, Abbey decides to embrace her role as a wicked stepmother and make her own happy ending.

My name is Abbeygail and I am a wicked stepmother. Actually, you can just call me Abbey and I wasn’t always a wicked stepmother. This isn’t the kind of thing you plan, after all. You don’t wake up one morning and decide, “Oh, I think I’ll become the scorn of all things good and the envy of all things evil.” Nope. Somewhere between happily-ever-after and the possibility of facing life in prison comes the day when you realize, regardless of all your good intentions, you are now the most loathsome creature in all the world.
