    The princess and the pea

    Once upon a time there was a prince who wanted to marry a princess;but she would have to be real princess. He traveled all over the world to find one,but nowhere could he get what he wanted. So he came home again and was sad.

    One evening a terrible storm came on; there was thunder and lightning, and the rain poured down in torrents. Suddenly a knocking was heard at the city gate. 

    It was a princess standing out there in front of the gate. What a sight the rain and the wind had made her look. The water ran down from her hair and clothes; it ran down into the toes of her shoes and out again at the heels. And yet she said that she was a real princess.  

    "Well, we'll soon find that out," thought the old queen. But she said nothing, went into the spare room , took all the bedding off the bedstead, and laid a pea on the bottom; then she took twenty mattresses and laid them on the pea, and then twenty eider-down beds on top of the mattresses.

    On this the princess had to lie all night.  

    In the morning she was asked how she had slep. 

    " Oh,very badly!" said she. " I have scarcely closed my eyes all night. Heaven only knows what was in the bed,but I was lying on something hard, so that I am black and blue all over my body. It's horrible!" Now they knew that she was a real princess because she had felt the pea right through the twenty mattresses and the twenty eider-down beds. Nobody but a real princess could be as sensitive as that . So the prince took her for his wife.
