Fins and Feet: Chapter 18Andrina was awakened very late the next morning by a scream that made her sit straight up in bed, pale and trembling. The perpetrator of the sound was Ellie, who came bursting suddenly into the room and began dancing about in great excitement. “You’ve done it, you’ve done it, you’ve really done it!”
“Done what?” cried Andrina, rather shaken; judging by the light from the hall windows, it was well past full daylight. “Why didn’t you wake me earlier?” She leapt out of bed and scrambled to get dressed.
“I didn’t want to disturb you,” Ellie explained, closing the door and spinning gleefully around. “You had quite a night last night; but it was so worth it! Oh, haven’t you heard?”
“No, I’ve been sleeping!” answered Andrina, a little sharply. “What’s going on?”
“It was only announced this morning,” sang Ellie happily, st
Fins and Feet: Chapter 17Bong, bong, bong, came the first tolls of the bells of the great clock tower.
Andrina leapt to her feet. “Oh!”
“What is it?” asked Henry, rising with her.
“I have to go,” Andrina explained hastily. “I can’t be out past midnight.”
Henry gave her a bemused look. “What, you have a curfew?”
“Sort of.” Andrina backed hastily away. “Like I said, it’s a long story; I’ll explain later. Goodbye!” With that, she turned and fled back through the way they’d come.
“Hey, wait!” Henry hurried after her, pushing aside the curtain; he was immediately mobbed by a gaggle of other ladies, peppering him with questions on his long absence.
Bong, bong, bong, the clock sounded off. Andrina hurried through the crowd with several hasty apologies, trying not to trip over her own feet. Bong, bong, bong, went the c
Fins and Feet: Chapter 16The castle grounds had several divisions; the kitchen gardens were on the left, opened onto by one of the servant’s doors. Just behind this, through a small gate, was one of the luxury gardens, surrounded by a wall of greenery, but between this and the
kitchen garden was a short walk and a narrow open space with one large tree, a shallow pool, and a low bench tucked neatly in one corner. As all the servants were now making last-minute adjustments for the ball, no one else was about, and it was under
this tree that Ellie found Andrina, face in her arms.
Tentatively, Ellie edged nearer, hands clasped. “Are you hurt?”
“No,” Andrina gasped shakily, sniffing hard. “Just my pride.” Drying her eyes, she rose and sat down on the bench. “Guess I should have seen that one coming.”
Ellie sat down next to her, her own eyes swimming. “I’m so sorry. We should have gone through the servant’s halls.
Fins and Feet: Chapter 15“See, I told you he’d do anything for you!” Ellie was bouncing on the balls of her feet with excitement. “That’s practically a personal invitation; you have to go to the ball now!”
Andrina looked up from polishing a large, silver jar thing she’d been working at for the last quarter of an hour. It was very old and spotted with age; a good mass of a smelly goop had taken off the worst of it, but Lady Tremaine had coldly informed her that she wanted to see her reflection clearly in it. “Yeah, I’ll be sure to do that, once I find something nice enough to wear and a time when the Tremaines aren’t looking over my shoulder.”
Ellie waved a hand dismissively. “Oh, you shouldn’t worry about them. But if it’s a dress you need, you can probably buy something nice with your week’s earnings.”
Andrina frowned, puzzled. “What… ‘earnings’?”
