Once upon a time the Persia was ruled by the king named Ahasuerus. He loved his wife vashti very much. She was very beautiful. But he didn’t have his queen vashti any more. He felt sad and lonely. By seeing his loneliness his aides made a plan “That every girl had to come to the palace for 1 year and get beauty treatments and then at the end of that year the king would select a new queen from those girls. King Ahasuerus attracted by this idea and he thought this was a fine plan. So he put the plan into effect.
Esther was one of the girls that had to go to the palace. Her parents had died. So she was living with her cousin Mordechai. But esther was a Jewish girl. Before going to the palace Mordechai told esther not to tell anyone that she was a jew. She was treated so well at the palace but she missed living with mordecai.
Hegai was the one in charge of Esther he gave here special food, he gave her 7 maids he gave her the best room in the palace. He liked Esther very much and he did what he could to make her stay there the best. Mordechai would come and see her everyday.
Finally it was Esther’s turn to see the king the year was up. She took Hagai’s advice and dressed the way he had suggested. All the other girls mentioned how beautiful she was when she was in the palace in the throne room. These the king was sitting on his throne. She walked up to the throne and bowed low to the king. The king was so taken with her beauty, he put queen vashtis crown immediately on her head. He announced Esther was the new queen. The king was so happy, he decided to throw a party to show everyone his new queen.
One day when Mordechai was at his palace he heard two of the guards. “Teresh and Bigthan” planning to assassinate the king. He quickly told to Queen Esther. Immediately the queen hurried to the king to tell him the news.
How do you know this, my queen? the king asked “Mordechai heard them talking and he told me as soon as he could,” Esther said.
“Thank him for me,” said the king.
King Ahasuerus sent several guards to find teresh and bigthan. Still, Esther had not told anyone that she was a jew. She had been told to keep the secret by mordechai. She always did as he asked. She did not reveal the secret anywhere to any one.
