STEPMOTHER:  Where is that girl?  I want my tea!

STEPSISTER #1:  I want my bath!

STEPSISTER #2:  I want my manicure!

CINDERELLA:  Here’s your tea, Stepmother.  Your bath is ready, Stepsister.  And we can start the manicure.

STEPMOTHER:  The tea better be strong enough. What TOOK you so long?

STEPSISTER #1:  My bath better be warm enough!

STEPSISTER #2:  My nails aren’t going to paint themselves!

NARRATOR:  And that’s what every moment in the day was like for Cinderella. 

CINDERELLA:  Whew!  At least late at night I get to read by candlelight. Thank goodness my mother taught me how to read and left me her books before she died.
