Cinderella’s Shoes
: Chapter Two pgs 14-16
“I don’t mean to be disrespectful, Kate, but short
of finding Cinderella’s missing
slippers, I don’t know how your brother will find a
nything new. It’s been—”
Kate held up her hand. “It’s been too long. That’s
what everyone keeps saying. But
Mom and I can’t quite believe it. She still won’t l
ook through Dad’s things that the army
returned. She’s still hoping… Wait. Why would you m
ention the slippers?”
Johnny looked sheepish. “That’s what those Burgosov
men said. I know they were
trying to trick you, but why would they come up wit
h that particular lie? They didn’t seem
like the brightest fellows, so maybe they let the t
ruth slip out.”
Kate leaned back and stared at the ceiling. That wa
s exactly what she had been
thinking. “Did I make a mistake?”
“You followed your intuition, and it paid off. They
didn’t have the slippers, and they
didn’t know about your dad. Doesn’t mean the shoes
aren’t real.”
“I wish I could talk to them again.”
“The guys in jail? You’re kidding, right? Why don’t
you just ask Princess Kolodenko?”
“I did, but she told me the shoes were lost to the
family. The Burgosovs are the only
ones who can help.”
Johnny gaped at her.
“Do you hear what you’re sayin
g? You want to risk talking to
those criminal brothers to get information on a pai
r of fairy-tale shoes that don’t belong to
you, and whose owner seems to be satisfied that the
y’re gone. She’s not even looking for
them, is she?”
Princess Kolodenko didn’t have the need that Kate d
id. One of her granddaughters
had died in the war, but they knew what happened to
her. There was no mystery for them
to solve. No need to risk anything. Kate raised her
eyebrows in a look that she hoped said,
Yes, it sounds foolish, but I’m going to do it anywa
Johnny laughed. “Anyone hearing us outside this roo
m would think we were loony.”
Kate smiled, and soon began laughing herself.
Johnny sobered. He leaned forward and searched Kate
’s eyes. “How do you think the
shoes will help you find your dad? Didn’t the princ
e have to go door to door until he found
The last of the laughter floated out of Kate. “I do
n’t know. I thought maybe if I wore
them, they would guide me to him.” She cringed. “Si
lly, right? But the dress is unusual. What
if the shoes are, too? What if they
find people? I have this crazy connection to a fai
family; I should be able to use it when I need help
“Okay,” he said. “I’m in. Whatever you need me to
