My retelling of Cinderella
Once upon a time, In a great Kingdom, a gentleman lived happily with his wife, who was sweet and good, and his pretty little daughter. But something sad happened. The wife past away and the father had to get remarried. He got married to a hideous , self centered women, who gave birth to two ugly girls that was just like the her. Sadly the father past away. So that meant that the mother was in charge so she ordered Ella (who was the daughter of the mother who died ) to do all of the housework for them. One day the prince had sent a invitation to all of the houses inviting them to a royal ball at the castle to find a princess to marry. The ugly stepsisters demanded Cinderella to make them a beautiful dress. She worked for 5 hours making their dresses. As soon as she finished she had to do their hair ,makeup and polish their shoes. By the time she finished she asked in a sweet voice" Can I come to the ball?". The Stepmother said" After you have finished cleaning all of the rooms and swept the floor , But you have to do it all in 10 minutes''. After 10 minutes she came into the room with a lovely pink dress, but cheekily the stepsisters riped and shredded the dress and they just left Cinderella crying on the porch. In an blink of an eye a wondrous sight appeared. It was Cinderella 's Fairy Godmother. Cinderella's Fairy godmother asked her" Why are you crying my dear?". She replied " I am not allowed to go to the ball ". She answered " Well if you want to go to the ball you have t0 go and get me a pumpkin, Six mice and a rat. So she raced of and found all of those stuff and brought it back to the Fairy godmother and she told Cinderella to go and have a shower. As soon as Cinderella finished her shower she was amazed at what she saw. She saw a carriage, six horses and a coachman. Then she sighed" Despite the stuff I can see what am I going to wear"?. Then without answering the Fairy Godmother waved her wand around Cinderella and there she was, standing with a beautiful aqua dress. As Cinderella was about to leave the Fairy Godmother said " Oh one more thing". "What"? said Cinderella. "You have to be home by Midnight or else your dress will turn back to rags", and off went Cinderella. As Cinderella stepped into the ball room all eyes were on her. " Do you want to dance" asked the prince"?. "Sure" said Cinderella. As the two were dancing the ugly stepsisters were jealous. Cinderella got so carried away that she didn't know what the time was. Ding Dong Cinderella ran as fast as she could out of the hall , Down the steps and away into the dark night sky. "No" the prince thought to himself, but as he was walking up the steps he saw a glimmering light in the distance. it was the beautiful girl's shoe. As soon as he picked it up he raced inside the palace and commanded his gentlemen to go around the whole kingdom and see if any girl fit's this shoe. So the search was on for the girl that the prince danced with. They went to every house in the entire kingdom , but no one could fit the shoe, until they came to Cinderella's house. The ugly stepsisters were beautifying themselves, while Cinderella was washing the clothes in the wash house. "Will you try this shoe on for me"? Asked the servant. "Of course" replied Anastasia. "Too small" said the servant. "Will you try this shoe on for me"? "Of course" replied Drizella. "Too big" said the servant. "Do you have any other daughters"? asked the servant. " No ". Then he could hear the sweet melody of the Cinderella's voice. "Who is that?" "Oh that is just our maid". "Let her try on the shoe". "No". "Yes " insisted the servant. So he got Cinderella and she tried on the shoe and... It was a perfect fit. So they took her to the palace and told the prince that this is the girl that he was looking for. The prince asked her " Will you marry me?" " Of course " and so they lived happily ever after.
