"If I were a man, I would do as you say Beauty, but beasts who want to prove their love can only lie down on the ground and die, says Beast.
Beauty will love the beast, and will lose him.
Prince Charming will come to Beauty, and ask, "Are you happy?"
Beauty will respond, "I shall have to get used to it."
