"The air was filled with a rushing sound and as she turned to look, the entire palace burst into brilliant light and fireworks filled the sky. When she turned back, she found a handsome prince lying in the monster’s place. His eyes opened and he sat up.
“Beauty,” he said, “Your love has saved my life! Many years ago, an evil witch turned me into a Beast and said the only way the curse could be broken was if a beautiful woman told me she loved me and would consent to be my wife.”
Overjoyed, Beauty gave the Prince her hand and helped him to his feet. Together they entered the light-filled palace. To Beauty’s surprise, her family was gathered there. The lovely woman who had appeared to Beauty in her dream was indeed a fairy and it was she who had worked to help undo the witch’s evil spell.
“Beauty,” the fairy said, taking her hand, “Not only will you be rewarded for your steadfast love and devotion to your father, but also for learning to overcome your fear of a beast to find the true, kind heart that beat within. You shall remain in this palace and take your rightful place beside your prince.”
“As for you ladies,” the fairy said, turning to the sisters, “Your pride and cruelty have earned you quite another reward. You will stand at the palace doors as stone statues, who will silently watch your sister’s happiness until you realize the pain you have caused and admit your mistakes. You will, I fear, remain statues for a long time.”
With a wave of her wand, all was accomplished. The Prince’s lands and his subjects were all restored to him. The royal couple ruled their lands with wisdom and kindness and lived their lives happily ever after."
