If you guessed the girl is Rapunzel you are right. If not,
well you know. We all know about the story of Rapunzel right? No? OKAAY we are
starting from square numero uno.
Once there lived a married couple. Wife (that was her name)
was pregnant. Her most common craving was rosemary. The only place you could
find rosemary was in the witch’s garden next door.
Day by day, week by week, her craving for rosemary
increased more and more. It finally got bad enough that if she didn’t have
some rosemary she felt she would die. So the husband made up his mind to fetch
some from the witch’s house. They made some salad and it was soooo delicious
that she wanted more. So that night the husband went back to the garden
to take some more. The witch caught him and yelled, "HOW DARE YOU STEAL MY
"Please," begged the husband, "Don’t hurt
me, I only did it for my wife."
"This is acceptable, but it will cost you. When your
child is born you must give it to me," said the ugly witch. The husband
was so frantic that he said ok.
Before long the young girl was born. About two weeks after
the baby was born, there came a knock at the door. Rappp. Rappp.
"Oh," said Wife, "We are so far from town. I wonder who that
The witch came bursting through the door. "Where’s
the baby?!" She shouted. The witch grabbed the baby from the bassinet
when she saw it. "…WAIT!" Husband shouted. He begged and pleaded
all he could but she wouldn’t let the baby go.
The witch took the baby to her castle and named her Rapunzel.
By the time she grew up Rapunzel was a very pretty young
girl. Rapunzel had long blonde hair and baby blue eyes. She was the most
charming girl in town. The witch didn’t want any boys to see Rapunzel or to
fall in love. She decided the best thing to do was lock her up in a tower.
This tower had no stairs, doorways and only window.
Everyday the old witch would come out and yell, "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let down your long hair."When Rapunzel heard these words she would let down her hair
for the witch to climb.
One day the prince was riding through the forest and he
heard her melodious singing. Day after day, week after week he returned to
hear her singing. About a month after he started listening, he was behind a
tree and he saw the witch climb up Rapunzel’s hair. He thought to himself,
"So that’s how you get up." The next day came and he yelled,
"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your long hair." Then her hair came
tumbling down. Rapunzel got so frightened when he came in but then got to know
him. Every day he came to see her.
One day the witch was climbing up her hair. Rapunzel
shouted down, "I wish you would climb as fast as the prince. He got up in
half the time!" "Oh? So the prince is coming to meet you?" The
witch said in anger. "Opps" said Rapunzel in fear. Opps is right Rapunzel.
The next day: "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your long
hair!" This was the witch talking.
"Coming, coming." Rapunzel knew that she was in
trouble so she said it in a really distressed voice. So the witch climbed up.
She took some scissors from her pocket and cut Rapunzel’s hair. She put it
in a braid and nailed it to the wall.
When the prince came up to the tower
walls, He shouted out, "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your long
hair." The witch tumbled down the hair. The prince started climbing up.
The witch cut the hair and then he fell to the ground in a patch of thorns. He
scraped his eyes and became blind forever. So he thought. Years went by with
the prince coming back to hear Rapunzel’s beautiful singing, since he couldn’t
see her anymore.
Then the witch let Rapunzel out. When she got out of the tower,
she saw the prince while
walking through the forest. She saw that he was blind. Rapunzel started singing and
he recognized it at once. He was so joyous. She shed a tear and it landed in
his eyes. He was forever healed from his blindness.
They got married in the Prince's castle and lived happily ever after.
