An Ugly Princes.
The king of Spain decided to marry off his daughter Sarah, but not to a bad but to a working man. Three hundred weavers, three hundred smiths, three hundred woodcutters and a sailor, Yen by name, were brought to the palace. The princess came out them before, they looked at her and they all said: «Oh!» The princess had grey hair, only one eye, there were no teeth in her mouth. She was not a princess but a monster.
All the suitors run away. And Yen sailed to Greece. Sarah cried bitterly. She cried and cried and couldn’t stop. By and by her moans turned into a song – a very sad, but beautiful song. Some businessmen came from America. They recorded princess sarah’s song, sold the records and earned six million dollars.
Once Yen was caught in a storm at sea. There were large waves and he was thrown onto a desert island. The ship опустив but the waves threw a gramophone and a few records onto the land together with the man. When Yen came to himself he put on one of the records and suddenly heard sarah’s voice day and night and fell in love with the princess. Yen came back to Spain and told the king he wanted to marry his daughter.
«I’m going to love her as ugly as she is», he said. Sarah came, wearing a mask on her face. When Yen told her he loved her Sarah took the mask off and everybody saw that she was BEAUTIFUL!!!
It was a custom in Spain that a young woman should wear a mask when she met her suitors. The man who told her he loved her should become her husband. If Yen had known that, he would have married her long time before that. But then the world wouldn’t have had sarah’s beautiful and sad songs.
