The Other Side of the Story

The normal high school student, Raven, needs to analyse the famous fairy tale of Snow White. Thinking this as easy, she soon uncovers the truth about the perfect Snow White, and realizes it is much deeper, raw and tragic than the story we all know so "well".


24. Thursday

After that sentimental moment with my mother, I couldn’t concentrate on anything else. Not even Snow White. I just needed a little time for myself, thinking about… me. I never did that. It angered me that I never cared enough for myself to actually think about my feelings, express them, and cope with them. Typical Raven. Such a loner that I don’t even think about me. That was depressing. A soul in a body, but even then it’s separate. I decided to embrace my feelings of sadness, but also the safe sanctuary that was placed within my mother’s arms. I didn’t know what I would do without her. And with those thoughts a tear slid down my cheek as I crawled under my covers and turn off the light. Tomorrow would be better. Tomorrow I would cope.

Well, tomorrow didn’t have a big impact on me. Nothing much had changed, even though I had some self understanding, of what was going on in my mind. This was my revelation: 1) I was mad at my father because he was never home.

2) I was well… disappointed in my mother. She had always been so strong, and suddenly I felt like I was the parent and she was the child. But it meant we had a stronger bond, but still it was as if I had been given a responsibility, that should not be put on my shoulders.

That was basically it. Other than that everything seemed to be going normally. School was the same, except today we were given two hours to research our projects in class. I took this opportunity to read as much as I could. Of course I was disturbed by the murmurs of my classmates, and tried to tune them out. It was hard though, it seemed as if they were talking as loud as they possibly could. Quickly I found a seat furthest away from everyone and opened my laptop.
