Sleeping Beauty - version #3


You know the story. Beautiful princess, evil fairy, curse, spinning wheel, ouch!, sleep for 100 years.

Fast forward. Castle overgrown; prince plus entourage arrives.

Hero fights through foliage, sees castle, illegally breaks in and beholds courtiers asleep. Like a predator he enters the princess's bedroom and spies the beauty on her bed asleep. He kisses her.

Princess wakes, screams, accuses prince of assault, but calms down when he hands over a wad of cash, quickly followed by a non-disclosure agreement, which she signs. Prince plus entourage goes off in search of other beauties.

Has he woken you? Me too.
