Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young girl whose stepmother always made her stay home with the baby. And the baby was a spoiled child, and wanted everything for himself, and the young girl was practically a slave. But what no one knew is that the king of the goblins had fallen in love with the girl, and he had given her certain powers. So one night, when the baby had been particularly cruel to her, she called on the goblins for help! “Say your right words,” the goblins said, “and we’ll take the baby to the Goblin City. And you will be free.” But the girl knew that the king would keep the baby in his castle for ever and ever and ever, and turn it into a goblin.
