The story of Cinderella
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young woman called Cinderella who lived with her two ugly sisters. However, it was not a happy household because they treated her as a servant. Her main job was cleaning out the hearth. Here is a picture of the hearth she had to clean, taken from Google.
Cinderella, in her cress and her sparkly silver dainty shoes, certainly stood out from the other guests who were standing by the Wall. In fact, she looked so different that no one recognised her, even her two sisters, so when the Prince decided, on first seeing her, that there was no one with whom he would rather stand and look at the Wall than she, the sisters looked on enviously as did everyone else, wondering who the stunner in the salad outfit was.
However, when the clock struck midnight, Cinderella broke away from the crowd looking at the Wall, and ran away. As she ran, she lost one of the shoes, which the disappointed Prince picked up, saying, 'I'm sure this belonged to that girl in the unusual cress. Tomorrow I will try to find her.'
The next day, the Prince turned up at the house of the two ugly sisters and Cinderella. The two ugly sisters tried on the shoe but it didn't fit, so the Prince said, 'Is there anyone else who lives here?' 'No,' said the ugly sisters, 'only our maid.'
'Can I see your maid?' he asked, his heart thumping. He just knew that a moment of destiny awaited him.
'Okay,' they said, and went to fetch the maid.
