Rapunzel Audio Story

Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived a beautiful girl named Rapunzel. Her hair was like spun gold, and it flowed down from her tower room, where she was kept captive by a wicked witch named Gothel.

Every day, Gothel would climb up Rapunzel’s hair to visit her. “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!” she would call, and Rapunzel would let down her long, golden locks.

Despite her situation, Rapunzel remained cheerful and kind. She would sing from her window, and her voice was as enchanting as her beauty. One day, a prince, riding through the forest, heard her singing. Enraptured by her voice, he sought to find her.

The prince watched Gothel and learned how to visit Rapunzel. “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!” he called. Overjoyed at meeting someone new, Rapunzel let her hair down, and the prince climbed up.

“Who are you?” Rapunzel asked, startled yet curious.

“I am a prince,” he replied, “and your voice has captivated my heart.”

Day after day, the prince visited Rapunzel, and they fell deeply in love. They planned to escape together, but Gothel discovered their plan. In her rage, she cut off Rapunzel’s hair and banished her to a faraway desert.

When the prince came next, Gothel let the cut hair down. The prince climbed up, only to find the witch waiting. In his despair at losing Rapunzel, he fell from the tower and was blinded by thorns.

Despite her plight, Rapunzel remained hopeful. In the desert, she gave birth to twins, a boy, and a girl, and she sang to them just as she had sung in her tower.

Meanwhile, the blind prince wandered the forest, guided only by the memory of Rapunzel’s voice. One day, by a stroke of fate, he heard her singing in the distance. Following the sound, he found Rapunzel and their children.

Tears of joy and love fell from the prince’s eyes as he embraced his family. Miraculously, his sight was restored. Rapunzel, the prince, and their children returned to his kingdom, where they were welcomed with open arms.

They lived happily ever after, and Rapunzel’s voice, filled with joy and love, was heard throughout the land, a testament to their enduring love and the triumph of hope and kindness over adversity.

And so, dear children, remember: even in the darkest of times, love and hope can light the way to a bright and happy future.

The end.
