Cinderella Sarah

I DON'T LIKE TUESDAYS. Tuesday is the day the Prince visits. He always comes to see Lady Roselle, because she is so beautiful. That has to be the only reason, because she's a nasty snake, with pumpkin breath too. That's what I call her, but my sister Sarah scolds me and says she's been good to us, and we must be respectful.

Anyhow, when the Prince visits, even I have to take a bath, and I am only the kitchen lad. Cook threatens she'll put me in the sink with the dirty dishes if I don't get down to the river and wash my hair. Ain't gonna risk having any soap on my skin, no Siree! So off I run. That's not so bad I guess, I love jumping off the high cliff, except the water is freezing. A few months ago, I was having so much fun jumping and splashing, that I didn't realise the Prince was watching me. He called out to me and chatted with me for a good long time.

What a nice man he was asking me about myself and my sister. Well, I told him the whole story, with all my best acting. Sarah says I am a great actor, and he was a great audience. I walked tall and proud like my Dad, the great merchant that he was, and I blew strong and fierce like the storm that sank his ship. I died grandly praying for my two precious children. Then I pretended to be my wicked stepmother, who threw us out of our own home and made us come to work for Lady Roselle. I was getting carried away with myself because this is my favorite story to act out; my sister does love it and laughs at my fooling around. But, I kept my wits about me and avoided the scene where I act out Lady Roselle as a snake. Thankfully, someone came to call the Prince away just then. He seemed sad to say goodbye, but probably he was sad to have to go talk to that Lady Roselle.

That was the only good Tuesday I've had since then. Lady Roselle heard about my acting somehow, and now I'm banned from appearing before the Prince. Instead, my sister has to wait on Lady Roselle and his Royalness hand and foot. She's kind of nervous around the Prince, and she hates all that standing around, not moving, and saying ‘yes M’am’, ‘no M’am’. She's a little clumsy too and keeps dropping things. I told her that if she was a slave in some countries, she could be killed for dropping things. That didn't seem to help her.

Lady Roselle enjoys punishing her later, once the Prince has gone. Clean this, fetch that, fix this, and try not to drop it, Sarah, she says in her hoity-toity voice.

I really have trouble being respectful to that snake. It's worse because Sarah used to go to school with Roselle when they were children, and Roselle so loves to make a big thing of Sarah being her servant now. When I complain, Sarah tells me to shush, we have nowhere else to go, so let’s make the best of it.

The other Tuesday I was helping Jim the gardener, when who should appear but the Prince himself, with my sister! I couldn't believe it! Seems Lady Roselle sent Sarah on an errand to fetch some vegetables from the garden, and the Prince offered to go with her because he had a headache and needed some fresh air. Magic, I reckon. They were talking and laughing like old friends. I've never seen Sarah looking so relaxed and pretty; not that I’d tell her so.

When the Prince saw me, he seemed super excited and asked me to act out a story. I did my other favorite, Puss in Boots, with the help of Jim as the Miller’s son, and Sarah as the beautiful princess. The Prince offered to be the ogre and what fun we had! He said I was the smartest puss, and Sarah the most beautiful princess he'd ever seen. Boy, did she blush, especially when I told the Prince he was the ugliest ogre I’d ever met.

This last Tuesday, the Prince invited Lady Roselle to his ball. He said all young ladies of the land could come,
