Suddenly, an old fairy appears. She is angry because the king did not invite her. The old fairy speaks an evil spell and says, “The princess will prick her finger with a needle and sleep forever!” The king and queen are very sad. They are afraid that their daughter will sleep forever.

The king hopes that the princess will never see a needle. “Throw away every needle in the palace!” orders the king.

Many years have passed. The princess is now sixteen years old. She is as beautiful as can be. One day, the princess walks into a room. She sees needle and picks it up. The needle pricks her finger.

The prince kisses her and she awakes. The prince and the princess fall in love. They are soon married and they live happily ever after.
