  The Ugly Queen

  

  In the ancient times, a queen ruled a beautiful country with green mountains and clear waters.While all the people of the country were very beautiful, the queen was extremely ugly. She had a short and fat body with a hooked nose and a crooked mouth.She was so ugly that nobody wanted to see her, for when they did they wouldn’t help laughing.

  The queen was so angry at heruglinessthatshewould lose her appetite for food, especiallywhencomparingher own image in the mirror with those of other people.

  She lay on her bed thinkinghowtobeautifyherself:there was no use in applying any powder on her face… Suddenly she had an idea: if she could smash all the mirrors in the country,the people would have no way to compare their images with hers without seeing their beauty.

  And then she gave a “royal order” and commanded all the people to smash their mirrors.Anybody acted against the order was to be put to death immediately. And now she felt relieved and thought nobody could find out who was beautiful and who was ugly.

  One autumn morning, she took many woman attendants to play along a lake.The lake was as clear as a mirror. The attendants laughed proudly when they saw their beautiful figures reflected in the lake.The ugly looking queen also saw her reflection and found it as ugly as before.She got so angry that she trembled.In great anger, she came up with an idea: simply tramp the big mirror till it breaks. She used all her power and jumped into the lake. Splash! The ugly looking queen fell into the lake.She struggled for a while but failed to get out of the water and sank to the bottom.

  Soon the water returned to its normal quietness and clarity.

  Now when people pass by the lake, their beautiful images are still reflected as clearly as before in the water.

  

  古时候,有一个女皇,她统治的国家山清水秀,十分美丽。尽管这个国家的人们个个貌美,女皇却极其丑陋。她身材又矮又胖,还长着鹰钩鼻子,歪歪嘴。她实在是太丑了,谁都不愿意看见她,因为人们看见她的时候总忍不住发笑。

  女皇为自己的丑陋感到很恼火,特别是在将镜子中丑陋的自己和别人作比较时,她都气得没了食欲。

  女皇躺在床上,苦想让自己变得漂亮起来的法子:往脸上擦粉吧?那不管事……后来她突然想出了个主意:如果把全国的镜子都打碎,人们就无法看到自己的美貌,也就无法同她的丑相比较了。

  于是她下了一道“圣旨”,要求全国的人们都把镜子砸了。任何抗旨的人都会当即处以死刑。女皇现在感觉轻松了,她觉得不会有人区别出谁美谁丑了。

  一个秋天的早晨,女皇带着很多侍女沿着湖边游玩。湖水清澈得像一面镜子,侍女们看到自己映在湖里那亭亭玉立的身影,都得意地笑了起来。丑陋的女皇也看到了自己的倒影,当她发现自己还是一如既往地丑陋,气得浑身发颤。一气之下,她又想出了一个主意:干脆一脚跺碎这面镜子。于是,她使出全力跳到湖中。扑通!丑陋的女皇掉到了湖里。她挣扎了一会儿,没能出水,最终沉人了湖底。

  不久,湖水又恢复了平静和清澈。

  此后,凡是从湖边路过的人,他们美丽的身影还像从前那样清晰地映在湖水里。
