摘要 : 一個年輕人,在街上檫皮鞋,他熱情的招攬著他的顧客,賣力的檫拭,一天最多只能檫30雙,除了買鞋油和吃飯,最多一天只能剩20元。他想,如果要買下對面的那棟樓,至少要檫500年。到那時不要說他沒有了,可能對面的那棟樓也不見了,這種檫法肯定不行,一天,他想

There was once a Prince who wished to marry a Princess; but then she must be a real Princess. He travelled all over the world in hopes of finding such a lady; but there was always something wrong. Princesses he found in plenty; but whether they were real Princesses it was impossible for him to decide, for now one thing, now another, seemed to him not quite right about the ladies. At last he returned to his palace quite cast down, because he wished so much to have a real Princess for his wife.

One evening a fearful tempest arose, it thundered and lightened, and the rain poured down from the sky in torrents: besides, it was as dark as pitch. All at once there was heard a violent knocking at the door, and the old King, the Prince's father, went out himself to open it.

It was a Princess who was standing outside the door. What with the rain and the wind, she was in a sad condition; the water trickled down from her hair, and her clothes clung to her body. She said she was a real Princess.

"Ah! we shall soon see that!" thought the old Queen-mother; however, she said not a word of what she was going to do; but went quietly into the bedroom, took all the bed-clothes off the bed, and put three little peas on the bedstead. She then laid twenty mattresses one upon another over the three peas, and put twenty feather beds over the mattresses.

Upon this bed the Princess was to pass the night.

The next morning she was asked how she had slept. "Oh,very badly indeed!" she replied. "I have scarcely closed my eyes the whole night through. I do not know what was in my bed, but I had something hard under me, and am all over black and blue. It has hurt me so much!"

Now it was plain that the lady must be a real Princess, since she had been able to feel the three little peas through the twenty mattresses and twenty feather beds. None but a real Princess could have had such a delicate sense of feeling.

The Prince accordingly made her his wife; being now convinced that he had found a real Princess. The three peas were however put into the cabinet of curiosities, where they are still to be seen, provided they are not lost.

Wasn't this a lady of real delicacy?

豌豆上的公主

從前有一位王子,他想找一位公主結婚;但是她必須是一位真正的公主。所以他就走遍了全世界,要想尋到這樣的一位公主。可是無論他到什么地方,他總是碰到一些障礙。公主倒有的是,不過他沒有辦法斷定她們究竟是不是真正的公主。她們總是有些地方不大對頭。結果,他只好回家來,心中很不快活,因為他是那么渴望著得到一位真正的公主。

有一天晚上,忽然起了一陣可怕的暴風雨。天空在掣電,在打雷,在下著大雨。這真有點使人害怕!這時,有人在敲門,老國王就走過去開門。

站在城門外的是一位美麗的公主。可是,天哪!經過了風吹雨打之后,她的樣子是多么難看啊!水沿著她的頭發和衣服向下面流,流進鞋尖,又從腳跟流出來。她說她是一個真正的公主。

“是的,這點我們馬上就可以考查出來。”老皇后心里想,可是她什么也沒說。她走進臥房,把所有的被褥都搬開,在床榻上放了一粒豌豆。于是她取出二十床墊子,把它們壓在豌豆上。隨后,她又在這些墊子上放了二十床鴨絨被。

這位公主夜里就睡在這些東西上面。

早晨大家問她昨晚睡得怎樣。

“啊,不舒服極了!”公主說,“我差不多整夜沒有合上眼!天曉得我床上有件什么東西?有一粒很硬的東西硌著我,弄得我全身發青發紫,這真怕人!”

現在大家就看出來了,她是一位真正的公主,因為壓在這二十床墊子和二十床鴨絨被下面的一粒豌豆,她居然還能感覺得出來。除了真正的公主以外,任何人都不會有這么嫩的皮膚的。

因此那位王子就選她為妻子了,因為現在他知道他得到了一位真正的公主。這粒豌豆因此也就送進了博物館。如果沒有人把它拿走的話,人們現在還可以在那兒看到它呢。

請注意,這是一個真的故事。
