Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest. Whenever she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village called her Little Red Riding Hood.

One morning, Little Red Riding Hood asked her mother if she could go to visit her grandmother as it had been a while since they'd seen each other.

"That's a good idea," her mother said. "We usually visit grandma twice a month. However, because of common tests, you have not visited Grandma this month! She would be upset if she doesn't see you soon!"

  2. After baking the biscuits, both of them packed the biscuits into Little Red Riding Hood's basket. However, Little Red Riding Hood had to set out soon or it will get dark before reaching Grandma's house so they started packing the biscuits in two at a time. Before long, they finished and Little Red Riding Hood set off.

  3. On her journey to Grandma's house, it started getting darker and darker. Little Red Riding Hood decided to quicken her pace from 20 steps per minute to 25 steps so that she would not have much of a chance to be eaten by the wolves which lurk in the forest.
