Twenty Years Old
I was eight when Cinderella convinced me I wanted to find my very own
prince. To be saved and loved by a man was a fairytale I wanted in on
because I didn’t feel loved or cherished by the man in my life, my father. I
also wanted the beautiful dress and shoes, but mostly I dreamed of the prince
wanting me, searching for me, choosing me.
Everything my mother taught me as a child perpetuated the story that
little girls should spend their lives preparing themselves for their prince. I
learned how to look, how to walk, how to smile, how to think. As I got older,
I learned about the right clothes, the right makeup, the right social circle. I
watched and listened to how other girls attracted boys. I perfected the art of
flirting, deferring, flattering. And all along the way, my mother reminded me
with everything she said and did that marrying the right man was my goal in
I was nineteen when I began questioning the fairytale. The princes I’d
met were far from what I imagined as a child. My experiences were clumsy.
My boyfriends weren’t attentive. And they didn’t stick around if I didn’t
sleep with them.
Where was my prince who wanted me, searched for me, chose me?
A year later, and my doubt is strong.
“It wasn’t supposed to be like this.” I yank my necklace off and dump it
next to the sink of the restroom I’m in as I stare at myself in the mirror. “I’ve
spent the last month preparing for this ball. Running my heart out, attending
every spin class I could find, barely eating, and agonizing over my dress and
hair, and he does that?”
My friend looks at me in horror as I pull at my hair, removing pins and
freeing it from its perfect braided low bun that my hairdresser assured me
was romantic and classy. He’ll love it, darling. Ah, no, he didn’t even notice
it, let alone love it. The only thing my boyfriend loves about my appearance
tonight is the sparkling silver dress I’m wearing. And not because of its
beauty, but because it hugs my body like it wants to suffocate it. I imagined
Jeremy whispering sweet nothings in my ear all night. Instead, he’s
whispered nothing but the filthy things he wants to do to me after he gets my
dress off. Well, that was before I angered him. He hasn’t been whispering
anything in my ear for the last hour since I did that.
“Kristen, stop. What are you doing?” Lesley shrieks, eyes wide with
panic as she watches me ruin my hair in the middle of one of the biggest balls
of the year.
