cinderella (narrative text)


Once upon a time, there was a beautiful girl called Cinderella. She has two ugly step sisters who were very unkind who made her do all the hard work. She had to sweep the floors, do all the dishes, while they dressed up in fine clothes and went to lots of parties.

“ Cinderella! Sweep the floor!”
“ Cinderella! Wash my clothes!”
“ Cinderella! Feed my pretty cat!”
One day, a special invitation arrived at Cinderella’s house. It was from the royal palace. The king’s only son was a truly handsome prince was going to have a grand ball. Three girls was invited to come. Cinderella knew she wouldn’t allowed to go to the ball. But the ugly sisters, “ho,ho,ho” they were excited. They couldn’t talk about anything else.

When the day of the ball came, they made such a fuss. Poor Cinderella had to rush about upstairs and downstairs. She fixes their hair in fancy waves and curls. She helped them put on their expensive new dresses. And she arranged their jewels just so.

As soon as they had gone, Cinderella sat down by the fire and she said
“oh, I do wish I could go to the ball”
The next moment, standing beside her was a lovely old lady with a silver wand in her hand.
“Cinderella!” said the fairy godmother

“I’m your fairy godmother and you shall go to the ball. you must go into the garden and pick a golden pumpkin, then bring me six mice from the mousetraps,  a whiskered rat from the rat trap, and six lizard. You’ll find the lizards behind the watering can”

So, Cinderella fetched a golden pumpkin, six grey mice, a whiskered rat, six lizards. The fairy godmother touched them with her wand and a pumpkin became a coachman with the most enormous mustache, and the lizards became six footmen dressed in green and yellow, then the fairy godmother touch Cinderella with the wand and her old dress became a golden dress sparkling with jewels while on her feet was a pretties pair of glass slippers ever seen.

“ cinderella, keep your promise! you must  leave the ball before the clock strikes  twelve. Because at midnight the magic ends” said the fairy godmother and Cinderella climbed into the coach.

When Cinderella arrived at the ball she looked so beautiful that everyone wondered who she was! Even the ugly sisters.

The prince of course asked her to dance with him.
“would you like to dance with me?”

And they danced all evening. He would not dance with anyone else. Now Cinderella was enjoying the ball so much that she forgot her fairy godmother’s warning until it was almost midnight and the clock began to strike. One, two, three. She hurried out of the ballroom. Four, five, six. As she ran down the palace steps one of her glass slippers fell off . Seven, eight, nine. She ran on toward the golden coach. Ten, eleven, twelve. Then there was Cinderella in her old dress. The golden pumpkin lay in her feet. And scampering down off down the road six green mice, a whiskered rat and six green lizards. So Cinderella had to walk home and by the time the ugly sisters returned home was sitting quietly by the fire.

Now when Cinderella ran from the palace, the prince tried to follow her and he found the glass slipper .
“I shall marry the beautiful girl whose foot fits this slipper and only her” said the prince

In the morning, the prince went from house to house with the glass slipper  and every young lady tried to squeeze her foot into it. But it did’nt fit any of them.
At the last, prince came to Cinderella’s house. Firs one ugly sister tried to squash her foot into the slipper,but her foot was too wide and fat. Then the other ugly sister tried, but her foot was too long and thin.
“please, let me try” said cinderella
But Cinderella slipped her foot into the glass slipper and fit perfectly. The next moment, standing beside her was a fairy godmother. She touched Cinderella with the wand and there was she in a golden dress sparkling with jewels and on her feet was the prettiest pair of glass slippers ever seen. The ugly sisters were so surprised that. For once couldn’t think of anything to say. But the prince knew what to say
“ Cinderella, will you marry me?” said the prince
“ sure! I will, prince!” said cinderella

And then, there was a happy wedding. Everyone who had gone to the ball was invited, even the ugly sisters. There was wonderful food, lots of music and dancing. And the prince of course danced every dance with Cinderella. He would not dance with anyone else.
And they live happily ever after.
