The lucky one has everything while the wretched creature has nothing. If a child does not have a parent to shower love then she has nothing. A parent can bad mouth the one disliked to ensure the society favors the punishment bestowed by the parent who dislikes the child since she wants everything handed over to the chosen one.
Thus, the chosen one should lead the life of a king and torture and abuse the wretched one dressed in shabby clothes married to a poor man since the chosen one has the wealth and powers handed down by the matriach who took pride and joy in plotting the betrayal of the husband who fell to his knees with a plunging shove by his wicked wife who wanted his wealth not him.
Cinderella, the story passed down from generation to generation is the true story of the poor misguided woman whose life was destroyed by her mother and the rest of her clan to punish her father for loving his daughter and bragging about the life he would like her to lead which is being led by her sibling.
The father who could do nothing except watch this cruelty was shipped to a faraway abode where he laid in isolation wishing that the day would come when they could be reunited in another world where they could go for walks on the beach and collect sea shells, listen to the waves crashing down, the sound of sea gulls chattering away and the whispers and eerie sounds of the approaching danger ahead.
