Once lived a mother with her two daughters. The older one was a lot alike her mother – rude and impolite while the younger was beautiful and kind like her father. The mother’s favorite daughter was of course the one that looked and behaved like her so she made her younger daughter do all the housework. The poor girl had to go to the river each and every morning and carry a jug of water home. One day she met a poor old woman who begged for a bit of water. The kindhearted girl helped her right away but what she did not know was that it was not an ordinary woman she helped, it was a fairy. Do you want to find out how to story goes for both sisters? Then read ”The Fairy”.
