“Laura… Laura… Ayo bangun! Nanti kamu terlambat ke sekolah,” teriak ibunda Ratu Ayunda. Mata Putri Laura terbuka sedikit. “Aku masih mengantuk sekali,” ujar Putri Laura mengucek matanya. (“Laura… Laura… wake up! You will be late for school,” shouts her mother Queen Ayunda. Princess Laura’s eyes open a little. “I’m still very sleepy,” says Princess Laura while scrubbing her eyes.)

“Ohhh tidaaaak… Sudah jam 7 pagi, aku terlambat!” teriak Putri Laura berlari menuju kamar mandi. Ia terpaksa hanya menyuci muka dan menggosok gigi, karena sudah terburu-buru. (“Ohhh Nooo… It’s 7 in the morning, I’m late!” shouts Princess Laura as she runs to the bathroom. She could only wash her face and brush her teeth because she is in a hurry.)

Putri Laura langsung menyambar tas sekolah yang ada di meja. Ia lalu berlari menuju kereta kuda yang sudah lama menunggunya. (Princess Laura snatches her bag that was laying on the table. She then runs to the horse carriage that’s been waiting for her.)

“Laura, makan sarapanmu!” teriak Ratu Ayunda. “Tidak Ibu, aku sudah terlambat,” jawab Putri Laura. “Ayo Pak, cepat pacu keretanya, aku sudah terlambat,” ujar Putri Laura sedikit cemas. (“Laura, eat your breakfast!” shouts Queen Ayunda. “No Mommy, I’m late,” replies Princess Laura. “Come on sir, quickly take the carriage away, I’m already late,” says Princess Laura anxiously.)

“Laura, baju kamu…,” seru Ratu Ayunda berusaha memanggil kembali. Namun, kereta kuda sudah berlalu terlalu jauh. Putri Laura tak mendengar panggilan Ibundanya.   (“Laura, your dress…,” exclaims Queen Ayunda trying to call her back. But, the horse carriage has drove away too far. Princess Laura did not hear her mother calling.)

Lonceng berbunyi. Gerbang sekolah pun ditutup. Putri Laura sampai di depan gerbang sekolah. “Wahai penjaga, tolong bukakan gerbang ini,” pinta Putri Laura kepada dua orang penjaga sekolah. (The bell rings. The school’s gates are closed. Princess Laura arrives at the school gates. “Dear guards, please open this gate,” asks Princess Laura to the two school guards.)

“Maaf, tuan putri, kami tidak bisa,” jawab salah seorang penjaga. “Kenapa tidak bisa? Aku ini seorang putri raja,” ujar Putri Laura sedikit marah. (“We are sorry Princess, we can’t,” answers one of the guards. “Why can’t you? I am the daughter of the king,” says Princess Laura, a little upset.)

“Karena tuan putri masih mengenakan pakaian tidur,” jawab penjaga. Putri Laura terkejut dengan jawaban sang penjaga. Ia langsung melihat pakaian yang dikenakannya.(“Because you Princess, is still wearing your pajamas,” answers the guard. Princess Laura is shocked to hear the guard’s reply. She then looks at the dress she is wearing.)

“Astaga, aku belum mengganti baju!” teriak Putri Laura kaget. Karena bangun kesiangan dan terburu-buru, ia sampai lupa mengganti baju dengan gaun kebesarannya. (“Oh my, I haven’t changed my dress!” shouts the surprised Princess Laura. Because she wakes up late and in a rush, she forgets to change her pajamas with her appropriate dress.)

Wajah Putri Laura memerah seketika. Ia lalu pulang ke istana diiringi rasa malu bercampur penyesalan. (Princess Laura’s face blushes. She then comes back to the palace with shame and regrets.)

Sesampainya di istana. “Ibunda, aku malu,” ujar Putri Laura sambil menangis tersedu-sedu. “Aku menyesal tidak bangun pagi,” ujarnya lagi. Ratu Ayunda lantas memeluk putri kesayangannya itu. (Arriving in the palace. “Mommy, I’m ashamed,” says Princess Laura sobbing. “I regret not waking up in the morning,” she adds. Queen Ayunda then hugs her favorite daughter.)

“Mulai sekarang, kamu harus bisa bangun pagi, ya,” ujar Ratu Ayunda. Sejak saat itu, Putri Laura tidak pernah lagi terlambat ke sekolah.    (“From now on, you must always wake up early, okay,” says Queen Ayunda. From then on, Princess Laura never gets late for school.)  (Cerita: Just For Kids/ Ilustrasi: Fika/ Translator: Yos)
