Cinderella Story

It is a matter of ancient times. Somewhere in a far away country, there lived a beautiful girl named Cinderella. Besides being beautiful, Cinderella was also very intelligent and kind.

Cinderella’s mother died in her childhood. After the death of her mother, Cinderella’s father remarried. Now she used to live with her father, stepmother and two step sisters.

The stepmother and sisters did not like Cinderella at all. All three of them were always jealous of her beauty and intelligence because both of her step sisters were neither beautiful nor intelligent.

It was a matter of one day. Cinderella’s dad had to go out for some work. After Cinderella’s father, the stepmother started misbehaving with Cinderella.

First of all he took off Cinderella’s beautiful dress and made her wear maid’s clothes. After this, all three of them started treating Cinderella like a maid.

She would get him to cook food, get the house cleaned, wash clothes and utensils and get all the other household chores done. The three of them even took away Cinderella’s room and forced her to live in the store room.

Poor Cinderella had no choice but to obey him. Apart from the birds living on the surrounding trees and the mice in the store room, Cinderella had no other friends. She used to work all day and sleep at night while talking to her friends.

The country where Cinderella lived. One day, the king’s soldiers there announced in the market that the king had organized a ceremony in the palace for the prince’s marriage.

For this ceremony he has invited all the marriageable girls of the city. As soon as Cinderella’s sisters heard this announcement, they both ran to their mother and told her the whole story.

His mother said that both of you will look the most beautiful in this ceremony. The prince will not marry anyone other than one of you.

Cinderella also heard this and she also wanted to go to the function, but she was very afraid to talk to her stepmother about it.

Her stepmother and sisters started preparing to go to the function. He got new clothes stitched and also purchased new shoes. Both of them used to practice everyday what they would talk about and how they would talk about it when they met the prince.

At last the day of the ceremony arrived. Both the sisters were very excited to go to the function. Both of them had started preparations to attend the function since morning.

Cinderella also helped her two sisters. After getting her sisters fully prepared, Cinderella mustered up a lot of courage and asked her stepmother, “Mother, now I have also become marriageable.”

Can I also go to the function? Hearing this, all three of them started laughing out loud and said – The prince wants a wife for himself, not a maid. Saying this all three of them left from there.

After his departure Cinderella became very sad and started crying. Then a bright light came in front of him, from which an angel emerged. The fairy called Cinderella to her and said, “My dear Cinderella, I know why you are sad, but now it is time for you to smile.”

You will also be able to be a part of that ceremony. For this I only need one pumpkin and five rats. Cinderella could not understand anything but still she did exactly as the fairy said.

She ran into the kitchen and picked up a big pumpkin. After that she went to the store room and brought her friends, the rats.

After getting everything, the fairy waved her magic wand and turned the pumpkin into a carriage. Then she turned to the mice and transformed four mice into beautiful white horses and one mouse into a buggy driver.

Seeing all this, Cinderella could not believe her eyes. Before she could ask anything, the fairy swung her wand and decorated Cinderella like a beautiful princess.

There was a very beautiful gown on her body and shining shoes on her feet. She was fully prepared to go to the function and was filled with joy.

The fairy said to Cinderella, “Now you are all set to go to the ceremony, but keep in mind that you will have to reach home before 12 o’clock in the night, because after 12 o’clock the effect of the magic will end and you will come back to your real form.” Will you go?

Cinderella thanked the fairy and sat in the carriage and set out towards the palace. As soon as Cinderella reached the palace. Everyone’s eyes were fixed on him.

Her step mother and sisters were also there but she was looking so beautiful that even all three of them could not recognize her. Then Cinderella saw the prince coming down the stairs.

Everyone started looking at him. As soon as the prince’s eyes fell on Cinderella, he kept looking at her. Instead of going to all the princesses present at the ceremony, the prince came straight to Cinderella and extended his hand towards her and said, Princess, would you like to dance with me?

Cinderella shyly gave her hand to the prince and both of them started dancing. Cinderella became so lost in dancing with the prince that she lost track of time.

Then suddenly his eyes fell on the clock on the wall. It was almost 12 o’clock and Cinderella remembered what the fairy had said. Remembering the fairy’s warning, she got scared and ran away leaving the prince there.

Seeing Cinderella suddenly running away like this, the prince also ran after her. Due to running in a hurry, Cinderella lost one of her shoes and left it in the palace garden.

She quickly sat in her carriage and returned home. When the prince came out looking for her, he found Cinderella’s shoe in the garden. Seeing this, the prince became sad and thought that he would continue searching for Cinderella.

The next day the prince called his soldiers and handed them the shoe and told them to go to every house in the city and see every girl who came to the function wearing this shoe.

Whoever finds this shoe on his foot, bring him here. The soldiers did exactly this. He went to every house in the city and saw every girl who came to the function wearing shoes.

For some, the shoes were too small and for others, they were too big. After roaming all over the city, the soldiers finally reached Cinderella’s house. As soon as Cinderella saw the soldiers, she understood that they had come at the prince’s request and she happily ran towards the door.

At that very moment his stepmother blocked his way. The stepmother asked Cinderella, where did you go? The soldiers have come for the girl who was at the function last night.

You didn’t go yesterday, so do you need to go downstairs? Saying this, her stepmother locked Cinderella in the store room and kept the key in her pocket.

When the soldier came to the house with the shoe, his two sisters tried to wear it, but both of them failed. At the same time, Cinderella started crying in disappointment. Seeing him crying, his mouse friend thought of a solution.

After coming out from under the door, he ran down and secretly took out the key from the stepmother’s pocket and gave it to Cinderella. As soon as she got the key, Cinderella opened the door and ran downstairs.

The soldiers were returning towards the palace when they heard Cinderella’s voice, “I also want to try on the shoes.” Hearing this, the stepmother and sisters started laughing, but the soldier also gave Cinderella a chance to wear the shoes.

As soon as Cinderella put the shoes on her feet. It easily came to his feet. Seeing this everyone was surprised, then the soldier asked Cinderella, “Is this shoe yours?” To this Cinderella nodded her head yes.

The soldiers took Cinderella to the palace in a carriage. Where the prince was very happy to see her. He proposed marriage to Cinderella, which she accepted happily. The Prince and Cinderella got married and started living happily with each other in the palace.
