Over the years, the promises of the fairies came true -- one by one. The Princess grew to be beautiful, modest, kind and clever. Everyone who saw her could not help but love her.
The King and Queen were determined to prevent the curse placed
on the Princess by the spiteful fairy and sent out a command that all the
spindles in the whole kingdom should be destroyed. No one in the kingdom
was allowed to tell the Princess of the curse that had been placed upon her for
they did not want her to worry or be sad.
