The Three Spinners | [Brothers Grimm]

The Three Spinners

Once there was a lazy girl who would not spin and her mother berates her for it. The Queen overhears and the woman, ashamed, explains that the girl spins so much that her mother cannot afford to buy enough flax to keep her occupied. The queen, impressed, takes the girl to a room filled with flax. If she spins it all within three days, she'll be rewarded with marriage to the queen's oldest son. Two days later, the queen returns and is amazed to find the flax untouched. The girl says that homesickness has kept her from spinning, but she realizes this lie will not serve her twice.
