Snow White and the Seven Dwarves Part II
Below is the second part of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves."
Snow White began to run. She tripped over rocks and stumbled over tree roots. She pushed her way through a tangle of vines and found herself in a clearing. In the middle of the clearing sat a tiny cottage, just as the huntsman had said.
Snow White ran to the cottage and knocked on he door. Nobody answered. "Hello," she called. "Is anybody home?"
Again, nobody answered. Snow White was scared. She was tired. And she was very hungry. She pushed the door open and went in. Inside the cottage she found seven tiny cups and seven tiny plates sitting on a table surrounded by seven tiny chairs. Seven tiny night shirts hung on seven tiny hooks, and along one wall stood seven tiny beds.
"Seven of everything," said Snow White, "except people. But somebody definitely lives here. I will have to wait for them to come home." She yawned.
Her stomach growled. "The huntsman said the people who live here are kind," she said. "Surely they will not mind if I have a bite to eat."
Snow White rummaged through the cupboards and found bread and cheese.
After she ate, she sank down onto one of the seven tiny beds and fell asleep. Not long afterward, there came a soft sound.
"Is she awake?" said a voice.
"I don't think so," said another.
"Hello, miss," said a third. "Are you awake?"
Snow White opened her eyes. She blinked. Seven little men stared back. "Oh!" Snow White sat up. "Who are you?"
One of the little men stepped forward "We are dwarves," he said. "We live
here. And who are you?"
"My name is Snow White," she told them. "I'm sorry I came into your house while you were gone, but I was so scared and so tired and so very hungry. I have no place to live."
"Oh, but you do," said the dwarf. "You will live with us."
"Thank you," said Snow White. "The royal hunstman was right. You are very kind. I promise I will not be a bother. Thank you. Thank you all!" She hugged each of her new friends.
The dwarves built Snow White a chair, a table, and a bed that fit her perfectly. They got her a plate and a cup and put a hook on the wall where
she could hang her clothes.
Before they went to work each morning, they made sure Snow White had enough food and plenty of firewood. When they came home each night, Snow White had a warm supper waiting. The dwarves were happy having Snow White at the cottage, and Snow White was happy living there.
