Once upon a time…. Well, actually it never happened, but haven’t you heard of creativity? Anyway, there was a girl named Cinderella. She had two step-sisters. But who’s counting? She also had a
step-mother and a pet dodo bird. She was treated very poorly.
She went to take a walk in the woods. She came across a house. It was a very cute house.
Nobody was there, so she decided to go in. She climbed up the stairs and heard a voice.
“Hurry up, Daddy!” said the voice.
“Coming!” said another voice.
Cinderella then heard footsteps coming up from behind her. She ran all the way up the stairs
and hid behind the trashcan. She then heard a growl. Cinderella got so scared, she jumped out the
window. She ran all the way into the woods and saw a large hallway. At the end of the hallway
there was a crackling voice chanting, “Rumplestiltzkin is my name. Catching babies is my game.
She won’t guess my name for sure. Then I’ll grab the baby and run out the door. WORD!”
Then the little man popped his head around the corner. “Hi, can I accompany you on the
long journey ahead of you?” said the man. “Huh?” said Cinderella. The little man said, “There is a
witch who hates you and wants to turn you into a toad. You must find her and kill her.” “Sounds
tragic,” says Cinderella. “C’mon, let’s go!”
