The Princess and the Pea

Once upon a time, there was a Prince living in a country.

When he was at marriageable age, he wished to marry a Princess.

But, she must be a real Pricess.

Therefore, he travelled all over the world

in hope of finding such a lady.

But the Princesses he found were not real ones. Some were not pretty,

some had bad character, and he couldn't marry them.

The Prince was upset, he returned his castle,

He was very disappointed.

One night, in a terrible storm

some one came to visit his castle.

He opened the gate of the castle, and found a wet girl standing there.

"I am the real Princess that the Prince is looking for."

She said, and she ask for stay in the castle that night.

"Well, we will know she is a princess or not."

Prince's mother, the Queen said, and she made a little trick on the girl's bed.

First of all, the Queen put a pea on the bed

Then, she laid twenty mattresses one upon another over a pea, put twenty feather beds over the mattresses, and let the girl sleep on it.

The next morning,

she asked the girl how she had slept.

The girl rubbed her sleepy eyes,

and answered

"I am so sorry, but I didn't feel comfortable.

I scarcely slept at all."

The Queen wanted to know more, so she asked

"You said that you felt uncomfortable, but how bad was it?"

"Well.

There was something under the bed, wasn't it?

It made my back painful."

The Queen then believed that she was a real Princess.

Because only a real Princess could feel one pea

all the way through twenty mattresses and twenty more feather beds.

So the Prince made haste to marry her, because he knew he had found a real Princess.
