A Step of Faith: The Dreaming Room

Here comes the next on my list.

Title: The Dreaming Room

This is, yet again, a Cinderella retelling.
This one, though, doesn't really have an exact genre it fits in.
There's a futuristic, almost contemporary feel to it, with some fantasy elements, mixed with a hint of thriller and a dash of romance.
This story particularly deals with captivity, and what happens to one's mind.
I guess you could say that this Cinderella is dealing with Stockholm Syndrome, and what happens to get her out of it.
It's all centered on one pivotal point, an invitation to a celebration.
This particular invitation, is presented to the main character by someone. . .
Almost, let's just say almost familiar.
Oh, and I have no idea how I'm going to fit in a fairy godmother. . .
Maybe she won't be in it?
But let's not forget the title.
That part.
Well, let's just say that if Cinderella kept falling asleep among the cinders, would the room with the fireplace not be called the room she dreams in?
Simple, really, but sweet.

more double exposure:

It's been years since she last set a foot out doors.
Well, off of the family property.
Eloise Duell never thought that was strange, or at least she would tell herself that.
But today, today is different.
Abraham Cofield, an old friend from before her father died, has suddenly turned up again.
And with him, an invitation to break free.
She doesn't know what from yet, but she can't help but wonder if it includes something to do with the room.
The dreaming room.

Well, that took some thinking out, and a lot of leaving out, but hey.
It's a work in progress.
Questions? Advice? Ideas? Anything is Welcome!

Keep on Writing!

God Bless,
