in the morning the storm had ceased; but of the ship not a single fragment could be seen. the sun rose up red and glowing from the water, and its beams brought back the hue of health to the princess’s cheeks; but her eyes remained closed. the mermaid kissed her high, smooth forehead, and stroked back her wet hair; she seemed to her like the marble statue in her little garden, and she kissed her again, and wished that she might live.

when cinderella appeared at the festival in this dress, everyone was astonished at her beauty. the princess had waited until she came, then immediately took her by the hand, and danced only with her. when others came and asked her to dance with them, the princess said, “she is my dance partner.”
Back: Max Worthington / Frances Worthington II / Jeremiah Worthington Front: Frances J. Worthington III / Dahlia Worthington
The matriarch of the obscenely rich Worthington family, Frances II (named for her dad) is a fiercely proud mother, a leader in the business world and long-time debutante. She took the throne of her parents shady financial empire straight out of college and hasn’t looked back since. Jeremiah was working at a discount tux rental store when he met his wife and he feels constantly overwhelmed by the expectations of high society. Frances claims not to have a favorite child but only the reader of her will knows for sure….the oldest, Maxwell (Max) is a college dropout who spends most of his time chilling in too-hip nightclubs and burning through his trust fund. Obvious heir Frances J. is in a top-secret prep school (and growing some pretty sweet sideburns) while Dahlia may or may not be joining a coven (she’s considering her options…)
she took a pair of scissors, and began to cut open the stomach of the sleeping wolf.
when she had made two snips, she saw the little red riding hood shining, and then she made two snips more, and the little girl sprang out, crying: ‘ah, how frightened I have been! how dark it was inside the wolf.’
