One day, Miss Ellis arrived at class accompanied by a young woman and two girls. "Today I have brought Cinderella and Snow White with me. They are accompanied by Cruela, their stepmother." Such an introduction certainly suggested they would discover something of interest that day, and that the teacher had done sufficient lesson preparation
"Today I have brought Cinderella and Snow White with me. They are accompanied by Cruela, their stepmother."
When everyone was seated, and Mrs. Cruela was preparing to speak, all the classroom lights went out. Amid the darkness two tremendous slaps could be heard, and a short time afterwards both Cinderella and Snow White could be heard crying.
Just then, the lights came on again and everyone could see the two girls weeping. -"Who did that?" asked Miss Ellis. Without hesitating, all the children pointed at the stepmother. Mrs. Cruela shook her head, but at that moment the lights went off again. Then two loud thumps resounded around the classroom, and Clara and Phillip began crying.
When the lights came on again the two of them were weeping and looking angrily at the stepmother, who everyone was pointing at accusatively. The stepmother began to speak again, saying she was innocent, but again the lights went out.
