Cinderella  

There once lived a cute lovable girl named Cinderella. But one day a misfortune came upon her. Cinderella's mother was ill and soon died. Every day Cinderella cried so sadly.

"Cinderella, Cinderella don't cry" Father, comforted her and comforted her. But, because Cinderella missed her mother so much she cried every day. "Cinderella please don't cry. Soon your stepmother will be arriving."

The stepmother brought with her two daughters. Cinderella was happy to have a new stepmother and stepsisters. However, it wasn't for long, for Father soon had to leave on a far away trip. "Pretty Cinderella, listen to your stepmother and stepsisters." Cinderella promised her father that she would.

Everyday, while the lazy, ugly stepsisters played they teased Cinderella. Cinderella always stayed up late cleaning and washing the laundry. "Cinderella! Clean my shoes." Cinderella always wore tattered clothes and worked all day doing housework.

One day, an invitation came from the royal palace. "Mother, the prince is having a ball in finding a bride." Stepmother and stepsisters were in a commotion is choosing there clothes for the ball.

"Until we get back clean the house and have the laundry washed spotlessly." The powered and dressed up stepmother and stepsisters left for the ball. "Oh! How I wish to go to the ball too." Cinderella left all alone began to cry.

All of a sudden the room became bright and a fairy godmother appeared. "Pretty Cinderella why are you crying?" "I want to go to the ball too. But, there's so much to do and I have nothing to wear."

"Don't worry Cinderella." As soon as the fairy godmother waved her magic wand, the housework that the stepmother asked was finished. And as soon as the tattered clothes were touched by the magic wand it changed into a splendid dress. And on her feet a pair of lovely glass slippers.

"Once the clock strikes twelve the spell will be broken. Don't forget and come before then." As soon as Cinderella arrived at the ball everyone's eyes starred at her. "Ah! Who can that lovely girl be?" The prince asked Cinderella to dance. The two danced happily.

The clock began to strike twelve. The startled Cinderella ran out of the ballroom. She left the ball so quickly that she lost one of her glass slippers. As soon as she came out of the palace the spell was broken. Cinderella went back home with one of her glass slippers.

The prince could not forget the girl who left the ball so quickly. So, the prince searched house by house to find the girl who would fit the glass slipper. However, there was no girl who was able to fit the glass slipper. Finally, he came to Cinderella's house.

The stepsisters fought over the glass slipper and tried it on. Both had big feet and did not fit the shoe. The prince was very disappointed.

"I will try on the glass slipper." Cinderella tried on the glass slipper. The shoe fit her perfectly. Cinderella took out the other glass slipper to put it on, "Ah! It was you." The prince and Cinderella went back to the palace and lived happily ever after.

灰姑娘

很久以前,有一个可爱的小女孩名叫灰姑娘。但有一天,不幸降临在她身上。灰姑娘的母亲病了,很快便去世了。灰姑娘每天都哭得很伤心。

“灰姑娘,灰姑娘不哭了啊。”父亲安慰着她。但是,灰姑娘还是因为想念母亲忍不住每日哭泣。”灰姑娘不要哭了。你的继母很快就要来了。”

继母带着两个女儿嫁了过来。灰姑娘有了继母和姐妹感到很高兴。然而,好景不长,父亲不久后将要离开去一个很远的地方。“美丽的灰姑娘,乖乖地听你继母和姐妹的话。”灰姑娘答应了父亲。

每一天,懒惰的、丑陋的姐妹都会嘲笑灰姑娘。灰姑娘每天洗衣服打扫屋子到很晚。“灰姑娘!擦擦我的鞋。”灰姑娘总是穿着破烂的衣服,整天马不停蹄地做家务。

有一天,皇室送来了邀请函。“妈妈,王子打算举行舞会选拔新娘。”继母和姐姐们都在叽叽喳喳地商量着穿什么衣服赴宴。

“我们回来之前你要洗衣服,打扫房子,而且得一尘不染。”恶狠狠的继母和姐姐们说完就去参加晚会了。”“哦,我多么想去舞会啊,”等所有人离开后灰姑娘开始哭了。

突然,房间变得明亮起来,仙女教母出现了。“漂亮的灰姑娘,你为什么要哭呢?”“我想去参加舞会。但是,我还有很多活儿要做,而且我没有晚礼服。

“别担心,灰姑娘。”当仙女一挥魔杖,继母要求做的家务活儿就都做完了。破烂的衣服被魔杖一指立刻变成了一件华丽的衣服。而且她的脚上还多出了一双漂亮的玻璃鞋。

“一旦时钟指向十二点钟,这个魔法就会失效。别忘了,在那之前一定要赶回来,“灰姑娘一出现在舞池时,所有人都在盯着她。“天啊!那个漂亮的女孩是谁啊?”王子过来邀请灰姑娘跳舞。两个人忘情的跳起舞来。

这时,时钟开始指向十二点。吓得灰姑娘赶忙跑出晚会大厅。她跑得飞快,不小心丢了一只玻璃鞋。当她从宫殿里出来时,身上的魔法慢慢消失。最后灰姑娘只带着一只玻璃鞋回家了。

王子对那位消失在晚会的女孩念念不忘。于是,王子开始寻找能穿上玻璃鞋的女孩。但是,那么多女孩却没有一个能够穿上玻璃鞋。最后,他来到了灰姑娘家。

姐姐们争先恐后地试穿玻璃鞋。但是两人的脚太大穿不上鞋子。王子很失望。

“我来试试吧,”灰姑娘试穿了下玻璃鞋。鞋的尺寸刚刚好。灰姑娘拿出另一只玻璃鞋穿上,“啊!原来是你。”王子带着灰姑娘回到了宫殿,从此过着幸福的生活。”
