Sleeping Beauty - version #4


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

Fast forward. Castle overgrown; prince plus entourage arrives.

Hero fights through foliage, sees castle, breaks in, courtiers asleep, enters the princess's bedroom and sees her asleep. He kisses her cheeks flamboyantly.

‘Mwahhh! - Mwahhh!’

Princess wakes, stretches, yawns, looks up at the handsome prince.

“Oh my! Show me what you’ve got, big boy!”

The prince replied... “My dear... you misunderstand. You’re so beautiful, so glamorous. I just want to gaze at you. And can I try on your pretty dress?”

Well... it is a fairy story.
