The people in the kingdom were anxious about this slipper. They wanted to wear it and go around the world as this slipper had the magical power to take people around the world.
Soon the king knew about this and he dared to go to the haunted house as he was also excited to wear this magical golden slipper but he saw the golden slipper crying the king asked "golden slipper why are you crying?" replied I have lost my power to fly can you help me in getting back ? The king said " Yes I will" The slipper said there is a witch near my house who took away the other slipper of mine my partner , therefore I am alone left with no magical power as my power works with my partner being together.
