The Moving
Susan and Henry have a nice house. They moved into the house ten years ago. They like it very much. It has one big problem. It is very small. They have four rooms. They have three children and two dogs. The children are seven, nine, and twelve years old. Susan and Henry want to move to a big house. They decided to sell their house and buy a big one.

They wanted to clean the house. Henry painted the living room and the kitchen. He painted the living room light blue and the kitchen white. Susan vacuumed the rugs in all the rooms. Then she scrubbed the kitchen floor. She scrubbed the bathroom floor too.

They decided they had too many things. Susan had three beautiful dresses, but they didn't fit. She gave them to her sister. The kids had some nice baby toys. She gave them to her friend. The kids had some old school papers. They didn't want the papers anymore. They recycled them.

Now Susan and Henry's house is very clean and neat. They are going to sell it next week. They asked a real estate agent to help them. People are going to come and look at it next Sunday. They are looking for a new house too.

The Princess and the Pea
Once upon a time there was a prince who wanted to marry a princess; but she would have to be a real princess. He travelled all over the world to find one, but nowhere could he get what he wanted. There were princesses enough, but it was difficult to find out whether they were real ones. There was always something about them that was not as it should be. So he came home again and was sad, for he would have liked very much to have a real princess.

One evening a terrible storm came on; there was thunder and lightning, and the rain poured down in torrents. Suddenly a knocking was heard at the city gate, and the old king went to open it. It was a princess standing out there in front of the gate. But, good gracious! what a sight the rain and the wind had made her look. The water ran down from her hair and clothes; it ran down into the toes of her shoes and out again at the heels. And yet she said that she was a real princess.

Well, we'll soon find that out, thought the old queen. But she said nothing, went into the bed-room, took all the bedding off the bedstead, and laid a pea on the bottom; then she took twenty mattresses and laid them on the pea, and then twenty eider-down beds on top of the mattresses.

On this the princess had to lie all night. In the morning she was asked how she had slept. "Oh, very badly!" said she. "I have scarcely closed my eyes all night. Heaven only knows what was in the bed, but I was lying on something hard, so that I am black and blue all over my body. It's horrible!"

Now they knew that she was a real princess because she had felt the pea right through the twenty mattresses and the twenty eider-down beds. Nobody but a real princess could be as sensitive as that.

So the prince took her for his wife, for now he knew that he had a real princess; and the pea was put in the museum, where it may still be seen, if no one has stolen it.
There, that is a true story.
