Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Condensed Version)

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Once upon a time, in a forest, there lived three bears: a Papa Bear, a Mama Bear, and a Baby Bear. They lived harmoniously in a cozy cottage, each having their own sized chair, bed, and bowl for porridge.

One day, while their freshly made porridge was cooling on the dining table, they decided to take a walk in the forest.

At the same time, a little girl named Goldilocks, who lived at the edge of the forest, ventured into the woods and came across the bears’ cottage. Seeing the door ajar and no one home, she let herself in out of curiosity.

She saw three bowls of porridge on the table. She tasted the porridge from Papa Bear’s big bowl but found it too hot. Then she tasted Mama Bear’s medium-sized bowl, but found it too cold. Finally, she tasted Baby Bear’s small bowl, and it was just right, so she ate it all up.

Feeling full, Goldilocks spotted the three chairs. She tried to sit in Papa Bear’s chair, but it was too high. Then she tried Mama Bear’s chair, but it was too wide. Finally, she tried Baby Bear’s chair. It was just right, but as she settled down, it broke into pieces under her weight.

Feeling tired, Goldilocks went upstairs and found three beds. She tried Papa Bear’s bed, but it was too hard. Then she tried Mama Bear’s bed, but it was too soft. Finally, she lay down in Baby Bear’s bed, and it was just right. Goldilocks fell fast asleep.

Soon, the three bears returned home. They noticed someone had been eating their porridge, and Baby Bear’s porridge was all gone. They saw someone had been sitting in their chairs, and Baby Bear’s chair was broken. Upstairs, they found someone had been lying in their beds, and Baby Bear exclaimed, “Someone’s been sleeping in my bed, and she’s still there!”

Hearing the noise, Goldilocks woke up with a start. Seeing the three bears, she jumped out of bed, raced down the stairs, and ran away as fast as she could, promising herself never to enter someone’s home without their permission again.

The three bears were left to fix their broken chair, make more porridge, and straighten out their beds, but they lived happily and undisturbed ever after.

The End.
