little red riding hood

A long time ago a little girl was taken away from her mother when by her evil grandma. Who lived in a castle outside the forest, the little girl was put into room where the lock was outside the door. The little girl wanted to see her mother so she cried for seven days till her grandma unlocked the door to see her crying grandchild. “When can I see my mother grandma?” asked the little girl with tears in her eyes. “Here put these on.” said the evil grandma handing her iron clothes. “When you can out grow these iron clothes you can go into the forest and see your mother who home sits at the end of two paths. The path of pins and the path of needles.” The little girl put on the iron clothes and waited for seven years in the dark room rubbing her back against the wall untill the iron clothes ripped from her body. She cried at the door “GRANDMA I NO LONGER NEED THESE IRON CLOTHES!” The little girl waited for her evil grandma to come, but she never came. “GRANDMA!” she yelled again, “I WANNA SEE MY MOTHER, AND I’M HUNGRY AND THIRSTY PLEASE GRANDMA!”

She still did not answer her plea, the little girl grabbed a broken piece of her clothes and began scratching away at the thick door. For 7 days she scratched away the door until there was hole big enough for her hand to reach through. She unlocked the door surprised to find the key still in the lock. The Little girl left the dark room and headed down the castle stairs. “Grandma where are you?” said the little girl. Yet she still couldn’t find her anywhere in the empty castle. The little girl decided to see her mother now she no longerwanted to wait. She grabbed old tattered red cloak and basket and put loaf of bread and jar of wine in the basket. She never looked back at the castle as she entered the forest.

In the forest the little girl came to the two paths of pins and needles. while deciding which path to take a wolf came out, and approached her. “Where are you going little red riding hood?” said the wolf. " To see my mother who I haven’t seen in long time. I don’t even remember all to well." said the little girl. “That is sad little red riding hood.” said the wolf. “What path are you going to take?” Pins or needles?" “Pins, the path of pins I will take to see my mother.” said the girl with smile on her face." The wolf smiled and told her to wear her hood up while walking down the path of pins so others doesn’t see she is human. Then wolf ran down the path of needles and got to her mother’s home before the little girl. While on the path eating her food and drinking her wine. The wolf killed her mother and lay down in the bed and waited in the dark house for the little red riding hood to come.

When she arrived she knocked on the door “Mother its me your daughter!” “Come in the door is unlocked!” said the wolf laying in wait. The door wouldn’t open still, noticing a small hole next to the door the little girl crawled through it into the home. The room was dark with small window that showed very little sunlight in the house. A fire place sat across the room and the wolf lay on the bed across the room. “Mother I’m hungry!” said the little girl “There is meat in the cabinet help yourself to it my dear.” said the wolf. She opened the cabinet and found the meat and began eating it. Suddenly a cat came out and said “STOP! Your eating your mother’s flesh little red riding hood!” The little girl stopped and said, “Mother this cat says I’m eating your flesh!” “Throw your basket at the cat my dear” said the wolf. She threw her empty basket at the cat. “I’m thirsty.” said the little girl, “Drink the wine from that jug on the table.” said the wolf. She drink the wine from the jug, when bird perched outside the chimney cried down, “STOP! Your drinking your mother’s blood little red riding hood!” The little girl asked her mother why is bird telling her she is drinking her blood? “Throw your cloak at the little bird.” said the wolf. She threw her cloak at the bird “I’m sleepy mother.” said the little girl. “Then lay down with me my dear.” said the wolf. The little girl undressed and approached the bed not aware of the way her mother laid on the bed. She laid down next the wolf and said, “My mother what big ears you have!” “All the better to hear you with!” said the wolf. “My what big eyes you have mother!” said the little girl. “All the better to see you with my dear!” said the wolf. “My what big claws you have mother!” said the little girl. “All the better to hold you!” said the wolf. “My what big teeth you have!” said the little girl. The wolf smiled and killed little red riding hood.

The end.
