The Princess & Her Glass Slipper

Once upon a time, not so far from here, lived a beautiful little princess named Abbigale.

The little princess had parents who loved her very much and wanted the best for their only child. So, they did what any parents would do and bought her some beautiful glass slippers. Princess Abbigale loved these slippers more than any other treasure she had, and wore them almost every day. Anyone who looked at the slippers looked at them in 'aw' and knew she was a special little girl.

The only problem with the slippers is that they wouldn't stay on Princess Abbigales feet, and unbeknownst to her parents, they would slip off at the most inopportune places. Thrice she lost one of her slippers, and twice she received them back.

The first time Princess Abbigale lost her slipper, her frantic mother checked every nook and cranny in the castle, only to find it wedged under the seat of her carriage. Relieved, her mother carefully took the slipper inside the castle, and stowed it in a safe place, vowing to make sure she always knew where the slipper was.

The second time, the slipper fell off while they were dining. Princess Abbigales mother and father did not notice until they got home. Once again, a frantic mother checked everywhere, but alas the slipper was nowhere to be found. However, upon calling the restaurant, her father located the slipper and had them hold it. Abbigales heroic uncle was able to go rescue the slipper and once again, it was safely at home.

However, having the slipper back in their possession was short lived, for once again, unbeknownst to her parents, the slipper fell off. This time, they did not know where they lost it. Even calling around didn't solve the problem, and the poor little princess no longer had two glass slippers, just one.

Devastated, they placed the other slipper in a safe place. A place where they could always remember what beautifully intricate slippers they were.

Not all tales end happily ever after, but they have since moved on and found other slippers in hopes that one day, the glass slippers can be replaced and all will be happily ever after once again.

The End.
