    Cinderella was now 75 years old. After a fulfilling life with the now
    departed Prince, she happily sat in her rocking chair watching the world
    go by with her cat Alan.
    One afternoon, out of nowhere, appeared her Fairy Godmother.
    Cinderella said, "Fairy Godmother, what are you doing here after all
    these years?"
    The Fairy Godmother replied, "Well Cinderella, since you have lived a
    good wholesome life since we last met, I have decided to grant you three

    Is there anything for which your heart still yearns?"

    Cinderella was overjoyed. "I wish I was extremely wealthy", she said.
    Instantly, her rocking chair turned into solid gold. Alan, her cat, jumped
    off her lap and ran to the edge of the porch quivering with fear.

    "Oh thank you Fairy Godmother," said Cinderella. "Is there anything else
    you might wish for?" asked the Fairy Godmother.

    Cinderella looked down at her frail body, and said, "I wish I was young
    and full of the beauty I once had." At once, her wish was granted.

    Cinderella felt a feeling inside her that she had not felt for years.
    The Fairy Godmother said, "you have one wish remaining, what shall you

    Cinderella looked at her frightened cat in the corner and said, "I wish you
    to turn Alan, my old cat, into a handsome young man."
    Magically, Alan suddenly underwent a change and then before them stood
    young man with the looks and body that no other man could match.

    The Fairy Godmother again spoke "Congratulations Cinderella. Enjoy your
    new life," and with that she was gone.

    For a few eerie moments, Cinderella and Alan looked into each other's eyes.
    Cinderella sat breathless, gazing at the most stunning, perfect man she
    had ever seen.

    Alan walked over to Cinderella and held her close in his muscular arms.
    He leant in close to her ear and whispered in a warm breath, "bet you
    regret having me cut now, don't you?"
