One day, as she sat sewing, she pricked her finger (7) with her needle, and three rich, red drops of blood (8) fell upon the glistening snow below. At the sight of the red blood upon the (9) white snow, the gentle queen whispered: “Oh, how I wish (10) for a baby daughter with hair as black as ebony, (11) lips as red as blood, and skin as white as snow.” And so it came (12) to pass that the queen gave birth to such a (13) child, whom she called Snow White.
