After the adventurer joins Sunsilk Tapestries, he finds Chuchumu crying in the Golden Bazaar for fear of facing the wrath of his stepmother Ouvielle. She had been attacked by a wild beast, and her little red riding hood, a family heirloom borrowed from her stepmother, was shattered and lost. The adventurer sews a viable copy of little red riding hood and hands it to Chuchumu, but not before witnessing Chuchumu being mistreated by his stepmother. To thank the adventurer, Chuchumu asks for part of his advance salary to give him a reward but Deaustie says that she could pay the adventurer what she knows about commerce.
Ouvielle's contacts in high society yielded an open invitation to his entire family at a ball promoted by the royal family and the Syndicate. Chuchumu was responsible for looking after the tailoring of dresses for his two evil stepsisters, Okkh Polaali and Eadburga. The adventurer helps Chuchumu to get a pair of magical midnight slippers from the green wizard of Gridania so that she has time to prepare for the ball and along with the dress that Chuchumu created for herself, she goes to the royal ball at the highest astral.
Is said that the Prince Teledji have fallen in love with Chuchumu at the ball and that they danced all night in each other's arms. But then, at midnight, Chuchumu ran without saying goodbye, dropping a single glove in a hurry and Teledji Adeledji scoured the city in search of his beloved. Teledji asked all the maids he found to try on the glove until he found Chuchumu. Chuchumu's stepmother was furious and did not offer the necessary dowry for the wedding, Chuchumu then kills her stepmother and stepsisters with poisoned apples from the palace gardens to inherit all of Ouvielle's assets. However Deaustie reveals that it was all a theater called "The Girl Who Would Be Princess" that had the whole city-state as a stage, and that unsuspecting adventurers believed the story and helped spread the rumors that it promoted the Sunsilk Troupe.
