The Pink Bonnet
Her name was Isabel she was just like any beautiful young girl
full of hopes for the future, however, one day, her life has totally changed.
She lost both parents while they have been sleeping.
The fire that started in the stove burned them to ashes.
She was left alone in this world. There was not even one soul to look after her.
Day after day she went around the small town trying to find work for herself.
There was nobody that would want to hire a maid.
She had no place to sleep, no place to put her head to rest.
Not even a single pillow left, all was gone with the fire.
She was poor, nothing left after that tragic night when the fire engulfed the house.
The only things that she had was a bonnet on her head and a simple dress.
She was left on the street with no means for the future, then, all of a sudden
there was a carriage passing by and a young man asked the driver to stop.
He asked the girl why she is sitting alone on the street with teary eyes,
sad face and heartbroken. He asked her to get inside, asked what her name was.
It appeared that he was Sir. Arthur, a rich man from the County.
She told him the story that she lost everything along with her parents.
He listened with a great attention to herů he liked her, she was very kind
and a very pleasing to listen too. Soon they arrived at his beautiful residence.
He asked the servants to take care of her, they gave her bath, found a dress,
and a pink bonnet that she is wearing now. She was no longer alone or abandoned.
This young man found her very attractive, and he introduced her to his family.
His parents not so sure at first if this was the right choice for their son, but he insisted.
Sir. Arthur married Isabel, and from a girl that was poor, she became a Countess.
He found his true love when least expected, and they lived happily ever after.
