SLEEPING BEAUTY

by Richard Hills

 

Prince Rupert and his valet arrive at an inn in search of the Castle D’Usse, as he has heard of a beautiful Princess living there. The innkeeper informs him that it all happened a hundred years ago, and a curse was put upon the Castle. Since then no one has dared to venture into the woods to find it.

The Prince decides next morning to set out in search of the Castle, while we go to see what happened there a hundred years ago when the wicked Black Fairy put a curse on it, and when the Princess pricked her finger on the spinning wheel and everyone fell asleep.

The Prince, determined to find the Castle, is plagued by the Black Fairy who tries to stop him. However, the other Fairies are on hand to help him reach the castle. There he finds the sleeping Princess and wakens her with a kiss. Soon they marry and live happily ever after.
