Cinderella Re-Spun (Part 9)
“There you are, dear. Hurry up and get to the ball, it’s about to begin.â?
“Thank you so much,â? was all Cinderella could manage as she climbed into the pumpkin-style ride.
“You’ll need a driver and a footman as well…â? she flicked the wand at two deer standing in the field nearby and with a puff of smoke appeared two lean men dressed in white to match the ensemble. “Come now, don’t be shy,â? she cooed. One of the men brushed a few pieces of grass off his face as he approached Fairy Godmother.
“Alright, off you are.â?
“Oh, but my feet. What shoes will I wear?â? Cinderella suddenly realized.
“Hmm, something unique. Glass slippers,â? Fairy Godmother decided. And on Cinderella’s feet she formed the most perfect crystal slippers, ten times more beautiful than silk.
“How will I ever be able to repay you?â? asked Cinderella.
“By finding your true love. Remember, you must leave by midnight.â?
The horses trotted off. When Cinderella looked back there was only thin air where Fairy Godmother had been.
