Narrative Text 



Snow Maiden

Once upon a time there lived a couple in a village . They had got married for a long time , but so far they did not have a baby yet . Every single minute they prayed to God , begged for a baby , but it never came true .

1 day , they went to snow mountain . They made a girl from snow & they dressed her beautifully . When it got dark , they decided to go home & left the snow girl alone . The following morning , some 1 knocked the door . " Any body home ? ” she said . The old woman inside opened the door & asked , " Who are you ? " The girl said " I ' m Snow Maiden , your daughter " . The old woman was surprised & happy , " Oh , really ? Thanks God ! Come in , please ! " Since that meeting , they lived happily .

Snow Maiden was beautiful , kind , diligent & helpful . Her parents & all of her friends loved her very much . 1 day , Snow Maiden played with her friends . They played fire . At first , Snow Maiden just looked at their play . Suddenly , her friends asked her to jump on the fire . Of course she refused it because 1 thing that made her afraid was the fire . It ' s because Snow Maiden was made of snow , so she should avoid the fire . But her friends kept on forcing her to jump on . Finally , she could not do anything then she did it . She jumped on the fire & she melted . Her friends were so sorry about this , they cried & cried hoping Snow Maiden could live again , but it was useless . Snow Maiden would not be back anymore . Her mother tried to entertain Snow Maiden ' s friends & asked them to make a new Snow Maiden . They went to a snow mountain & started making it . They expected to have the new Snow Maiden . Days passed but their dreams never came true .

Poor them !
