Once upon a time there was a gentlenman who, after his beloved first wife died, married a widow with two daughters. When his new wife and stepdaughters arrived at his home and met his only daughter, they hated her at once, for they were vain and jealous creatures.
The new stepmother sent the poor girl to live in the kitchen and thrust upon her all the lowly tasks in the house - cleaning, doing laundry, weeding the gardens, cooking, and sewing. Indeed, the young girl became a servant, running from morning till night, from one task to the next, until she fell into an exhausted heap upon the kitchen hearth at the end of the day.
"Look," said one stepsister, peering into the kitchen one morning and finding the girl still asleep in the ashes. "What a smutty, cinder-covered mess!"
"Let's call her Cinderella," suggested the other.
"Cinderella! Cinderella!" they chanted together, laughing at the joke they had made at her expense.
Cinderella's father said nothing of his daughter's new circumstances, for he was totally ruled by his new wife. One day, as he was leaving to go to town, he asked his stepdaughters if they would like a trinket form the town fair.
"I want a pearl necklace," said the eder.
"I want a pink satin gown," demanded the other.
"And you, my daughter?", the father asked Cinderella sheepishly, for he was ashamed of how she was treated and wished to make amends in some way.
"The first twig, Father, that brushes against your hat on the way home," Cinderella said.
