WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE
Gretta gazed at the mountain of wool beside her spinning wheel. How she longed to be outside with her friend Heinrich to watch the sheep and play with the newborn lambs.
“I would gladly trade my baby brother for some magic help.”
She yawned. The whir of the wheel lulled her.
“I’m here to spin this wool into yarn for you, little girl.”
Gretta rubbed her eyes and gasped to see a dwarf with pointed ears. “Yes!”
He laughed. “Your brother’s mine.”
Mama shook her. “Wake up and get back to work!”
Gretta sighed. “Where’s Rumpelstiltskin when I need him?”
