Midnight. A yellow light flashed, Cinderella was blinded for a minute. Blinking, she expected to be back in her rags, but that was not the case. A green-eyed monster, shaking with rage, replaced the prince. 'What's happened?' Cinderella exclaimed.
A fairy godmother appeared at once. 'Look around you,' she laughed, 'can you see all these green-eyed monsters, staring with envy?'
'What do you mean?' Cinderella asked.
'When the clock struck, everyone turned into what they really are,' she said, pointing at Cinderella's heart, 'in here.'
