Dancing With Grandpa Essay

984 words - 4 pages

Once upon a time, in the land of Faery Tail, lived a beautiful little mouse named Emma. Her biological mother died giving birth to her. She lived in the attic of a large mouse house with her stepmother and two stepsisters. She wore rags, had not washed in years, and was covered from head to toe with spider webs, for her wicked stepmother had made her clean the mouse hole daily. Her sisters never seemed to do much of anything; instead, they often drowned themselves with luxuries. Emma dreamed of meeting her father, Lord Mouseking. She had never in her life met this Father who had given birth to her, for they were forbidden to enter the tall tower he lived in because there were some evil-doers he knew whom he was afraid would harm the royal family.

A dance will be held at Mouseport's Champagne Tower on the 4th of September in celebration." This is my big chance, thought Emma, I can finally meet Daddy! "Emma, what is all that racket?" asked her stepmother. "We got invited to a dance at Mouseport's Champagne Tower," said Emma. "Give me that!" her stepmother responded in an unpleasant voice. Emma handed the letter to her stepmother. "Please, may I go to the dance? May I meet Daddy?" asked Emma hopefully. "Only if you mop the floors, only if you wash the doors, only if you bathe the rats, only if you shave the cats," chanted her stepmother. "Shave the cats! Oh, no!" exclaimed Emma. "Well, maybe you can skip that," said the stepmother. Emma's sisters heard about the dance and...
