    Little Red Riding Hood (小紅帽)

    Little Red Riding Hood walks through the woods to take some food to her grandmother. A wolf wants to eat her. It walks to the girl and asks her where she is going. Little Red Riding Hood tells him where she is going. The wolf suggests her to pick some flowers for her grandmother. In the meantime, the wolf goes to the grandmother's house and eats the grandmother. Then it put on the grandmother's clothes and waits for Little Red Riding Hood to come. When she arrives, the wolf wants to eat her too. A woodcutter, however, comes in and cuts the wolf open. Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother come out of the wolf's stomach.

    Once upon a time...

    There was a gentleman who married, for his second wife, the proudest and most haughty woman that was ever seen. She had, by a former husband, two daughters of her own humour, who were, indeed, exactly like her in all things.

    2008-11-19 17:26:38 補充:

    He had likewise, by another wife, a young daughter, but of unparalleled goodness and sweetness of temper, which she took from her mother, who was the best creature in the world.

    2008-11-19 17:26:56 補充:

    No sooner were the ceremonies of the wedding over but the mother-in-law began to show herself in her true colours. She could not bear the good qualities of this pretty girl, and the less because they made her own daughters appear the more odious.

    2008-11-19 17:28:44 補充:

    She employed her in the meanest work of the house: she scoured the dishes, tables, etc., and scrubbed madam's chamber, and those of misses, her daughters; she lay up in a sorry garret, upon a wretched straw bed,

    2008-11-19 17:28:48 補充:

    while her sisters lay in fine rooms, with floors all inlaid, upon beds of the very newest fashion, and where they had looking-glasses so large that they might see themselves at their full length from head to foot.

    2008-11-19 17:28:58 補充:

    The poor girl bore all patiently, and dared not tell her father, who would have rattled her off; for his wife governed him entirely. When she had done her work, she used to go into the chimney-corner, and sit down among cinders and ashes,

    2008-11-19 17:29:09 補充:

    which made her commonly be called Cinderwench; but the youngest, who was not so rude and uncivil as the eldest, called her Cinderella. However, Cinderella, notwithstanding her mean apparel,

    2008-11-19 17:29:19 補充:

    was a hundred times handsomer than her sisters, though they were always dressed very richly.

    2008-11-19 17:29:36 補充:

    It happened that the King's son gave a ball, and invited all persons of fashion to it. Our young misses were also invited, for they cut a very grand figure among the quality. They were mightily delighted at this invitation, and wonderfully busy in choosing out such gowns,

    2008-11-19 17:29:45 補充:

    petticoats, and head-clothes as might become them. This was a new trouble to Cinderella; for it was she who ironed her sisters' linen, and plaited their ruffles; they talked all day long of nothing but how they should be dressed.

    2008-11-19 17:29:53 補充:

    "For my part," said the eldest, "I will wear my red velvet suit with French trimming."

    2008-11-19 17:30:04 補充:

    "And I," said the youngest, "shall have my usual petticoat; but then, to make amends for that, I will put on my gold-flowered manteau, and my diamond stomacher, which is far from being the most ordinary one in the world."

    2008-11-19 17:30:22 補充:

    They sent for the best tire-woman they could get to make up their head-dresses and adjust their double pinners, and they had their red brushes and patches from Mademoiselle de la Poche.

    2008-11-19 17:30:31 補充:

    Cinderella was likewise called up to them to be consulted in all these matters, for she had excellent notions, and advised them always for the best, nay, and offered her services to dress their heads, which they were very willing she should do. As she was doing this, they said to her:

    2008-11-19 17:30:39 補充:

    "Cinderella, would you not be glad to go to the ball?"

    2008-11-19 17:30:47 補充:

    "Alas!" said she, "you only jeer me; it is not for such as I am to go thither."

    "Thou art in the right of it," replied they; "it would make the people laugh to see a Cinderwench at a ball."

    2008-11-19 17:31:14 補充:

    Anyone but Cinderella would have dressed their heads awry, but she was very good, and dressed them perfectly well They were almost two days without eating, so much were they transported with joy. They broke above a dozen laces in trying to be laced up close,

    2008-11-19 17:31:17 補充:

    that they might have a fine slender shape, and they were continually at their looking-glass. At last the happy day came;

    2008-11-19 17:31:26 補充:

    they went to Court, and Cinderella followed them with her eyes as long as she could, and when she had lost sight of them, she fell a-crying.

    2008-11-19 17:31:35 補充:

    Her godmother, who saw her all in tears, asked her what was the matter.

    "I wish I could--I wish I could--"; she was not able to speak the rest, being interrupted by her tears and sobbing.

    2008-11-19 17:31:44 補充:

    This godmother of hers, who was a fairy, said to her, "Thou wishest thou couldst go to the ball; is it not so?"

    "Yes," cried Cinderella, with a great sigh.

    2008-11-19 17:31:53 補充:

    "Well," said her godmother, "be but a good girl, and I will contrive that thou shalt go." Then she took her into her chamber, and said to her, "Run into the garden, and bring me a pumpkin."

    2008-11-19 17:32:04 補充:

    Cinderella went immediately to gather the finest she could get, and brought it to her godmother, not being able to imagine how this pumpkin could make her go to the ball. Her godmother scooped out all the inside of it, having left nothing but the rind; which done, she struck it with her wand,

    2008-11-19 17:32:18 補充:

    and the pumpkin was instantly turned into a fine coach, gilded all over with gold.

    2008-11-19 17:32:31 補充:

    She then went to look into her mouse-trap, where she found six mice, all alive, and ordered Cinderella to lift up a little the trapdoor, when, giving each mouse, as it went out, a little tap with her wand, the mouse was that moment turned into a fine horse,

    2008-11-19 17:32:39 補充:

    which altogether made a very fine set of six horses of a beautiful mouse-collared dapple-grey. Being at a loss for a coachman,

    2008-11-19 17:32:47 補充:

    "I will go and see," says Cinderella, "if there is never a rat in the rat-trap--we may make a coachman of him."

    "Thou art in the right," replied her godmother; "go and look."

    2008-11-19 17:33:04 補充:

    Cinderella brought the trap to her, and in it there were three huge rats. The fairy made choice of one of the three which had the largest beard, and, having touched him with her wand, he was turned into a fat,

    2008-11-19 17:33:08 補充:

    jolly coach- man, who had the smartest whiskers eyes ever beheld. After that, she said to her:

    2008-11-19 17:33:21 補充:

    "Go again into the garden, and you will find six lizards behind the watering-pot, bring them to me."

    She had no sooner done so but her godmother turned them into six footmen, who skipped up immediately behind the coach, with their liveries all bedaubed with gold and silver,

    2008-11-19 17:33:30 補充:

    and clung as close behind each other as if they had done nothing else their whole lives. The Fairy then said to Cinderella:

    2008-11-19 17:33:40 補充:

    "Well, you see here an equipage fit to go to the ball with; are you not pleased with it?"

    "Oh! yes," cried she; "but must I go thither as I am, in these nasty rags?"

    2008-11-19 17:34:00 補充:

    Her godmother only just touched her with her wand, and, at the same instant, her clothes were turned into cloth of gold and silver, all beset with jewels. This done, she gave her a pair of glass slippers,

    2008-11-19 17:34:03 補充:

    the prettiest in the whole world. Being thus decked out, she got up into her coach; but her godmother,

    2008-11-19 17:34:12 補充:

    above all things, commanded her not to stay till after midnight, telling her, at the same time, that if she stayed one moment longer, the coach would be a pumpkin again, her horses mice, her coachman a rat,

    2008-11-19 17:34:24 補充:

    her footmen lizards, and her clothes become just as they were before.

    She promised her godmother she would not fail of leaving the ball before midnight; and then away she drives, scarce able to contain herself for joy. The King's son who was told that a great princess,

    2008-11-19 17:34:33 補充:

    whom nobody knew, was come, ran out to receive her; he gave her his hand as she alighted out of the coach, and led her into the ball, among all the company. There was immediately a profound silence, they left off dancing, and the violins ceased to play,

    2008-11-19 17:34:42 補充:

    so attentive was everyone to contemplate the singular beauties of the unknown new-comer. Nothing was then heard but a confused noise of:

    "Ha! how handsome she is! Ha! how handsome she is!"

    2008-11-19 17:35:05 補充:

    The King himself, old as he was, could not help watching her, and telling the Queen softly that it was a long time since he had seen so beautiful and lovely a creature.

    2008-11-19 17:35:14 補充:

    All the ladies were busied in considering her clothes and headdress, that they might have some made next day after the same pattern, provided they could meet with such fine material and as able hands to make them.

    2008-11-19 17:35:26 補充:

    The King's son conducted her to the most honourable seat, and afterward took her out to dance with him; she danced so very gracefully that they all more and more admired her. A fine collation was served up,

    2008-11-19 17:35:34 補充:

    whereof the young prince ate not a morsel, so intently was he busied in gazing on her.

    She went and sat down by her sisters, showing them a thousand civilities, giving them part of the oranges and citrons which the Prince had presented her with,

    2008-11-19 17:35:47 補充:

    which very much surprised them, for they did not know her. While Cinderella was thus amusing her sisters, she heard the clock strike eleven and three-quarters, whereupon she immediately made a courtesy to the company and hasted away as fast as she could.

    2008-11-19 17:35:56 補充:

    When she got home she ran to seek out her godmother, and, after having thanked her, she said she could not but heartily wish she might go next day to the ball, because the King's son had desired her.

    2008-11-19 17:36:06 補充:

    As she was eagerly telling her godmother whatever had passed at the ball, her two sisters knocked at the door, which Cinderella ran and opened.

    2008-11-19 17:36:15 補充:

    "How long you have stayed!" cried she, gaping, rubbing her eyes and stretching herself as if she had been just waked out of her sleep; she had not, however, any manner of inclination to sleep since they went from home.
