Fairytale Forest


Once upon a time, there was a girl who was always sweet and kind. She lived with her annoying stepmother and two stepsisters who were real bullies. She had to work hard, sleep by the hearth, and they called her Cinderella. Cinderella secretly dreamed of living in the royal palace.

One day, the king announced a grand ball. The prince would choose a girl to marry. Cinderella wanted to go to the ball as well, but she didn't even own a dress. That evening, she sat sadly by her mother's grave. Suddenly, she felt a gust of wind. Her skirt turned into a golden dress and, as if by magic, glass slippers appeared on her feet! A large pumpkin turned into a golden carriage out of nowhere... Cinderella heard her mother's voice: 'You will be the most beautiful at the ball. But be careful: when the clock strikes twelve, the enchantment will be broken...' And so it happened. The prince danced with her all evening. But when the clock struck twelve, she fled from the palace and lost her glass slipper on the stairs...” 

Would the prince ever find his Cinderella again?
