OUAL Title


Cindy’s life has completely changed since The Ball. So, the first thing she did was give herself a much needed makeover.  A look that is fit for a princess, because she is no longer a servant in her own house.  Now, she has a maid and a butler who take care of everything.  She no longer lives in a damp cold basement.  She and Ryan moved into a modest three bedroom house in Appaloosa Plains.  Her days are no longer spent doing chores.

For the first time in her life, Cindy has  some free time. Of course she doesn’t have too much free time.  After all, she is planning the wedding of the century to her Prince Charming.

But no one will argue that Cindy Rella deserves some R&R.





The wedding of Cindy Rella and Ryan Charming is turning out to be a national event.  But that’s what you can expect when you marry the son of the Leader of the Free World.  Flowers were flown in from all over the world.  Orchids, lilies, and roses covered the entire beach.  Teal green bows adorned the back of the chairs and created a beautiful aisle that leads to a heart shaped arch with more roses around it.  And the decorations were only one small part of the big event.

Dress designers fought like cats  and dogs to make sure that they were the ones hired to design Cindy’s dress.  They showered her with lace, and chiffon, and ribbon all to show off that they were the best designer.  But in the end Cindy picked a simple dress by an unknown designer.

Plus, the guest list read like a who’s who of Appaloosa Plains.  Anybody who is anybody was invited to the wedding.  And the guests showered the young couple with well wishes.   Cindy and Ryan have everything they could ever want, so instead of gifts they asked their guests to donate money to charities like the Riverview Orphanage or the Appaloosa Plains Animal Shelter.  Hundreds of people gathered at the beach of Appaloosa Plains.  But there was only one guest that Cindy was excited to have at her wedding; her godmother Fay.





When Cindy was a child she would lay in bed, in her dark basement, and dream of meeting her Prince Charming.  And when the most popular boy in school talked to her in front of the trashcans, she didn’t realize that at that moment her life would change forever.  He gave her a voice and the courage to stand up to her evil stepmother and stepsister.  Until Ryan came into her life, Cindy never knew what happiness was.  And now that he is going to be her husband, there is no way that she will ever let him go.

Ryan was a confident, popular kid on the outside, but on the inside it’s a whole different story.  There is a lot of pressure being the only son of the Leader of the Free World.  Ryan is expected to be prefect, and anything less is unacceptable.  He had to be the prefect student.  The prefect athlete.  The prefect son.  All eyes are on him, scrutinizing him, waiting for him to fail.  And ready to ridicule him when he does.  But with Cindy he can be himself.  She loves Ryan, with all of his perfections and all of his flaws.  And after today they will be husband and wife.  Together forever.  Happily ever after!





Cindy wanted to do something special for new husband.  Cindy learned the recipe for Ryan’s favorite meal.  So their first meal as Mr. and Mrs. Charming was grilled salmon.

After the wedding of the century, Ryan and Cindy were whisked away to their honeymoon in Shang Simla, China.





Ryan, being the athletic, brave, adventurer that he is, opted for a quest.  He has to recover some lost artifact in some tomb under the Halls of the Lost Army.  He climbed the million stairs up to the top of the Hall of the Lost Army.  Then he climbed the million stairs down to the basement.





At the bottom of the million stair staircase was a hidden door.  So Ryan had to put his hand in a hole in the wall to find the lever to open the door.  I love the scared look on his face.





Cindy was right by his side the whole time.  But she was more interested in her new ring than trying to recover the lost artifact.





Ryan really is a Prince Charming.  Look at him pushing that big heavy statue on top of the electricity trap so Cindy can cross into the other room.  Who says that chivalry is dead?





I don’t know what it is, but something is telling me that the lost artifact is in this chest.





While Ryan gave the lost artifact back to it’s owner Cindy climbed up the million stairs (is it just me, or does China have a lot of stairs?) back to Base Camp.   She changed into something a little less comfortable and waited for Ryan.  I don’t I have to tell you want they did next.





Yup, they went right to sleep, because they were exhausted after their long day of adventuring and climbing stairs.

    1. I’m glad that you liked it. The fairy tale sort of ends after the glass slipper, so I got to have more creative freedom for the rest of Cindy’s story.
      Plus, I wasn’t sure if the lack of pictures was good enough.
      Thanks for the nice comment!! 🙂
