A wicked stepmother had a daughter called Deary. Her stepdaughter, Cheerful, worked as their servant, and was only given a loaf of bread for all her work. One day an old woman begged Cheerful for food. Cheerful gave her half of her bread. The old woman prayed for Cheerful. Since then flowers drop from her mouth when she laughs and pearls drop from her eyes when she cries. The governor's son heard about Cheerful and wanted to marry her but her stepmother sent Deary to the palace instead. The governor's son discovered the fraud and married Cheerful.
