The Story of Sleeping Beauty
On the day of her royal christening, Princess Aurora is visited and admired by all in the kingdom. Receiving gifts of all sizes, but three gifts given by the fairies are to benefit her throughout her life, the gift of beauty and song are given but before she can receive her third gift the evil fairy arrives. Insulted by her lack of invitation, her gift to Aurora is that of a curse - one which will lead Aurora to her death come her 16th birthday. Only true loves kiss can break the curse.
On her 16th birthday, Aurora is led into a room where a spinning wheel sits. Pricking her finger on the spindle causes the dark fairies curse to come into fruition.
