Once upon a time on a hill far away, lived three princesses. They knew no evil and they spread good wishes throughout the land. When they heard of three travelers coming their way they set off into the woods to gather fresh berries to feed the strangers upon their arrival. During their journey, the princesses knelt next to a flowing river to get a drink or water. To their amazement stood three furry mice. At first the mice were afraid of the princesses but soon learned that they bore a special gift. Being very skittish creatures, it was to their relief that the princesses could calm fears. They also discovered that the princesses could do no harm. It was that day that the three mice became the three princesses royal servants. Daily the three mice washed the princesses feet and made the most beautiful shoes for the them to wear. The End
