explained the story: "Once upon a time, in a faraway land,
a young Prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything
his heart desired, the Prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind."
then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle
and offered him a single rose In return for shelter from the bitter
by her haggard appearance, the Prince sneered at the gift and turned
the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances,
for Beauty is found within."
when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away
to reveal a beautiful Enchantress. The Prince tried to apologise
but it was too late, For she had seen that there was no love in
as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast
placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there.
As the years passed
he fell into despair
and lost all
For who could ever learn to love... a Beast?"
