In a far away land..

"I shall present you at Court.
You will soon see that the Prince, in whose honor the ball is being held, 
will be enchanted by your loveliness.
But remember! You must leave the ball at midnight and come home.
For that is when the spell ends.
Your coach will turn back into a pumpkin, the horses will become mice again 
and the coachman will turn back into a mouse...
and you will be dressed again in rags and wearing clogs instead of these dainty little slippers!
Do you understand?
Cinderella smiled and said, "Yes, I understand."
When Cinderella entered the ballroom at the palace, a hush fell.
Everyone stopped in mid-sentence to admire her elegance, her beauty and grace.
