One day, Kate found a note, it said Lisa wanted to find a friend. Kate was happy. She went to the castle. She wore a nice dress. She also used her magic to change her look.
There were full of people who wanted to be friends with Lisa in the castle. However, Lisa didn't like them because they were not beautiful. When it was Kate's turn, Lisa was happy because Kate looked beautiful.
Kate thought Lisa liked her too, so she used her magic to turn her look back to her real face. Lisa was shocked, then she shouted, ‘Ah! There is an ugly monster. I don't want to be friends with you!' Kate was sad, but later she became angry. She shouted angrily, ‘You are so bad! I will turn you into an ugly monster and lock you in the Monster Village until you learn a lesson. Don't choose a friend only by looking at the appearance!' Then Kate turned Lisa into an ugly monster!
Lisa touched her face , ‘Oh! My face is so rough! What have you done to me?' and she shouted, ‘I'm a princess, you can't do that to me!' Suddenly, Lisa's father (the king) came and said, ‘Lisa, it is your fault. You should learn a lesson.' Lisa was angry, 'You only help Kate, you don't understand me!' Then she ran into the Monster City, a place which was full of different monsters.
In the Monster City, there were many kinds of monsters. They wanted to be friends with Lisa. They always helped Lisa but Lisa didn't like them. Lisa shouted and being mean to them. She yelled, ‘Stop following me! Go away! You are too ugly! I don't like you!'
Then Kate suddenly appeared. Lisa was shocked and asked, ‘Why…why…are…you…here?' Kate said, ‘I already knew what you have done! I let the kindest monster to be close to you, hoping that you may change, but you disappointed me! You hurted him. So I will turn you into the ugliest monster!' Then, Lisa became a super ugly monster!
After Kate disappeared, Lisa thought, 'It is not true. I am not afraid! Kate only scared me!' However, Lisa didn't know Kate had a new plan for her…
Maybe Kate's new plan can teach Lisa a lesson that she would never forget in her whole life and to help her to be a good girl.
But still Lisa kept thinking why Kate changed her into a monster and she became a monster for almost 5 years.
One day, a girl who was more beautiful than her walked pass Lisa, she said, ‘Go away! You are so ugly!' Lisa felt hurt and she realized that she was wrong. She found Kate and apologized to her.
In the end, Kate used her magic and turned Lisa back into normal. Lisa learned a lesson: Don't judge a book by its cover. She learned to appreciate others because of what they have done, but not how they look. They became good friends and they lived happily in the castle. Lisa always helped Kate to dress up and Kate helped Lisa too.
