Part 3 of 3

Narrator 1: 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.

Cinderella: “How long you have stayed!”

Narrator 2: 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.

Eldest: “If thou hadst been at the ball,”

Narrator 3: said the eldest sister,

Eldest: “thou wouldst not have been tired with it. There came thither the finest princess, the most beautiful ever was seen with mortal eyes; she showed us a thousand civilities, and gave us oranges and citrons.”

Narrator 4: Cinderella seemed very indifferent in the matter; indeed, she asked them the name of that princess; but they told her they did not know it, and that the King’s son was very uneasy on her account and would give all the world to know who she was. At this Cinderella, smiling, replied:

Cinderella: “She must, then, be very beautiful indeed; how happy you have been! Could not I see her? Ah! dear sister, do lend me your yellow suit of clothes which you wear every day.”

Eldest: “Ay, to be sure!”

Narrator 1: cried her stepsister;

Eldest: “lend my clothes to such a dirty Cinderwench as thou art! I should be a fool.”

Narrator 2: Cinderella, indeed, expected well such answer, and was very glad of the refusal; for she would have been sadly put to it if her sister had lent her what she asked for jestingly.

Narrator 3: The next day the two sisters were at the ball, and so was Cinderella, but dressed more magnificently than before. The King’s son was always by her, and never ceased his compliments and kind speeches to her; to whom all this was so far from being tiresome that she quite forgot what her godmother had recommended to her; so that she, at last, counted the clock striking twelve when she took it to be no more than eleven; she then rose up and fled, as nimble as a deer.

Narrator 4: The Prince followed, but could not overtake her. She left behind one of her glass slippers, which the Prince took up most carefully. She got home but quite out of breath, and in her nasty old clothes, having nothing left her of all her finery but one of the little slippers, fellow to that she dropped. The guards at the palace gate were asked if they had not seen a princess go out.

Narrator 1: They said they had seen nobody go out but a young girl, very meanly dressed, and who had more the air of a poor country wench than a gentlewoman.

Narrator 2: When the two sisters returned from the ball Cinderella asked them if they had been well diverted, and if the fine lady had been there.

Eldest & Youngest: “Yes”

Narrator 3: They told her

Youngest: “but she hurried away immediately when it struck twelve, and with so much haste that she dropped one of her little glass slippers, the prettiest in the world, which the King’s son took up. He had done nothing but look at her all the time at the ball, and most certainly he is very much in love with the beautiful person who owns the glass slipper.”

Narrator 4: What they said was very true; for a few days after the King’s son caused it to be proclaimed, by sound of trumpet, that he would marry her whose foot the slipper would just fit. They whom he employed began to try it upon the princesses, then the duchesses and all the Court, but in vain; it was brought to the two sisters, who did all they possibly could to thrust their foot into the slipper, but they could not effect it.

Narrator 1: Cinderella, who saw all this, and knew her slipper, said to them, laughing:

Cinderella: “Let me see if it will not fit me.”

Narrator 2: Her sisters burst out a-laughing, and began to banter her. The gentleman who was sent to try the slipper looked earnestly at Cinderella, and, finding her very handsome, said:

Gentleman: “It is but just that you try; I have orders to let everyone make trial.”

Narrator 3: He obliged Cinderella to sit down, and, putting the slipper to her foot, he found it went on very easily, and fitted her as if it had been made of wax. The astonishment her two sisters were in was excessively great, but still abundantly greater when Cinderella pulled out of her pocket the other slipper, and put it on her foot. Thereupon, in came her godmother, who, having touched with her wand Cinderella’s clothes, made them richer and more magnificent than any of those she had before.

Narrator 4: And now her two sisters found her to be that fine, beautiful lady whom they had seen at the ball. They threw themselves at her feet to beg pardon for all the ill-treatment they had made her undergo. Cinderella took them up, and, as she embraced them, cried:

Cinderella: “I do forgive you with all her heart, and only desire that you always love me.”

Narrator 1: She was conducted to the young prince, dressed as she was; he thought her more charming than ever, and, a few days after, married her. Cinderella, who was no less good than beautiful, gave her two sisters lodgings in the palace, and that very same day matched them with two great lords of the Court.
