Sleeping Beauty
Now everyone in the castleexcept the three fairies- was happy. They all thought the spell was broken because it was Aurora’s 16th birthday and the sun had set. They were celebrating it and waiting for the princess to come.
The fairies were in the balcony. They saw the celebrations and they were crying.

Fauna: Poor King Stefan and the Queen.

Merryweather: They’ll be heartbroken when they find out.

Flora: They’re not going to (be heartbroken).

Merryweather: They aren’t?

Flora: We’ll put them all to sleep, until Rose awakens (=wakes up). Come!

They flew around the castle and put everyone to sleep so that they would not be heartbroken. ( Before falling asleep, Hubert talked to Flora.

Hubert: Philip has fallen in love with some peasant girl.

Flora: A peasant girl? Who is she? Where did he meet her?

Hubert: Once upon a dream.

Flora understood that it was Aurora, and that Prince Philip had fallen in love with Aurora.

Flora (to the other fairies): Come on, we’ve got to get back to the cottage!
