their parents were so late the children had to stay in the forest by themselves.  They walked in the forest and they saw lots of bags and clothes on the ground.  They were so happy because they thought they found people.  They walked around and found the door.

they knocked on the door and there was a rich woman who was really old; she told them "what would you like to have?"  And, they said, "We would like to stay here for one night, please?"  And, they said "thank you, thank you, so much!" because the woman said "yes".  The woman had two sons and five daughters.
