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. But then, one winters night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed 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. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart, and as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast, and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his twenty-first year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed he fell into despair, and lost all hope.
Ignore me. Im sad and i will make you sad. We will disappoint and hurt and leave each other-and then you will forget me. I become too attached to people too easily. People like you. Its already happened,but i don’t want to ask too much of you. I don’t want to ruin all the fun you’re having. Ill just leave now. Ill go away so you can enjoy yourself
As i stand here looking at you, i wonder if there will ever be a day when i will get over your smile. When i will let go of the hugs you gave me, a day that i continue to feel. A day when i forget the words you said to me. Whatever happens to is, i know i could never get over, let go of, or forget you.
