ORIENTATION                                One morning, I got up with the feeling that day was going to be an unlucky one for me. How right it was! I found that it was already 06:15 am.

EVENT                                               I rushed into bathroom. I did not see a piece of soap lying on the floor. I stepped on it and slipped, almost breaking my back in the process.

                        Then, I went into the dining room for my breakfast. I gulped down the tea without realizing that it was very hot. It burnt my tongue. I spat it out and could not eat anything because my tongue hurt. I got dressed and rushed to the bus stop. Unfortunately, I just missed the bus. My heart sank and I knew that I would be late for school.

                        When I reached school, my name was taken down by the teacher. The teacher scolded me for being late. To my humiliation, I was made to stand outside the class. I was so upset by the incident that I could not study properly. But worse was to come.

                        After school, I was on my way home when something hard hit me on the head. Someone had thrown a bag of fish bones out of window and it landed on me! I was boiling with rage but could do nothing. However, luckily for me, this only raised a small lump on my head.

RE-ORIENTATION                          I managed to reach home safe and sound, and did not dare to go out again for the rest of the day.

  The Princess and the Pea

ORIENTATION                   Once upon a time there was a prince who wanted to marry a princess; but she would have to be a real princess.
COMPLICATION               He traveled all over the world to find one, but nowhere could he get what he wanted. There were princesses enough, but it was difficult to find out whether they were real ones. There was always something about them that was not as it should be. So he came home again and was sad, for he would have liked very much to have a real princess.
RESOLUTION                     One evening a terrible storm came on; there was thunder and lightning, and the rain poured down in torrents. Suddenly a knocking was heard at the city gate, and the old king went to open it. It was a princess standing out there in front of the gate. But, good gracious! what a sight the rain and the wind had made her look. The water ran down from her hair and clothes; it ran down into the toes of her shoes and out again at the heels. And yet she said that she was a real princess.
COMPLICATION               "Well, we'll soon find that out," thought the old queen. But she said nothing, went into the bed-room, took all the bedding off the bedstead, and laid a pea on the bottom; then she took twenty mattresses and laid them on the pea, and then twenty eider-down beds on top of the mattresses. On this the princess had to lie all night. In the morning she was asked how she had slept. "Oh, very badly!" said she. "I have scarcely closed my eyes all night. Heaven only knows what was in the bed, but I was lying on something hard, so that I am black and blue all over my body. It's horrible!"
RESOLUTION                     Now they knew that she was a real princess because she had felt the pea right through the twenty mattresses and the twenty eider-down beds. Nobody but a real princess could be as sensitive as that.
RE-ORIENTATION                     So the prince took her for his wife, for now he knew that he had a real princess; and the pea was put in the museum, where it may still be seen, if no one has stolen it.
