Princess and the Pea

Once upon a time a prince wanted to marry a princess. But he wanted the princess to be a true one. He looked for her travelling all over the world. But he could not find the true princess. Sadly he returned home.

One day there was a terrible storm. Rain poured heavily. Suddenly there was a knock on the palace door. The old King went to open the door. There was a pretty girl all soaked in the rain water. She told she was a princess. She was travelling and due to the sudden change of weather she needed shelter for the night.

The King and the Queen liked her. But they wanted to find out if she was a true princess and could marry the prince. The Queen placed a small pea under her bedding and placed 20 mattresses on top.

The princess slept uncomfortably on it all night. In the morning, the Queen asked her how she slept. The princess replied " Oh it was very bad. The bed was very lumpy. I could hardly sleep.

Now they knew that she was a real princess as she felt the pea right through 20 mattresses. They married her  off to the prince and they lived happily ever after.
