Once upon a time this man Wu, had two wives and they each presented him with a baby, but one of the wives passed away from an illness, and a few days later Wu had passed away too. From that day on Yeh-Shen lived with her Step-mother.
Yeh- Shen's only friend was her secret fish, she would go there everyday when she was forced to work to talk to her fish. Somehow her step-mother had heard of this, she was furious.
The Step mother told Yeh- Shen to go and get some wood for the fire, then she went to go the fish and killed the fish with her dagger.
Yeh- Shen wished and wished that she could go to the ball to her fish, after wishing and wishing her wish came true! Her fish granted her a beautiful dress to go to the ball with.
The king was dancing with Yeh- Shen as her step mother was watching in anger, while they were dancing with each other they soon fell in love.
The king soon crowned Yeh- Shen the Queen and the king punished Yeh-Shen's mother. The king and the queen lived happily ever after.
