The King and the Grand Duke were delighted to see them falling in love.
But as the clock struck midnight, Cinderella ran from the palace. She was in such a hurry that she left one glass slipper behind. The Prince ran after her, but it was too late.
The next day, the Prince sent the Grand Duke door-to¬door to find the young woman who had lost her slipper. When they got to Cinderella's house, both stepsisters tried on the glass slipper, but their feet were much too big. Cinderella's stepmother told the Grand Duke that there were no other ladies in the house.
She had locked Cinderella in her room upstairs on purpose. But Cinderella's little friends Gus and Jaq stole the key from her stepmother's pocket, opened her door, and freed Cinderella just in time.
When Cinderella appeared and asked if she could try on the slipper, her stepmother was furious. She tripped the footman who was holding the slipper on a pillow.
