Beauty and the Beast in 30 Seconds

Nefertiri's Handmaiden

Note: Number three in the '30 Seconds' line. Hopefully it will live up to expectations.

Beauty's Father: I'm going on a trip, and I'll bring you back one thing.

Beauty: I'd like a rose.

Beauty's Father: Okay then.

(leaves)

(returns)

Beauty: WHAT DO YOU MEAN, 'I HAVE TO GO LIVE WITH A BEAST??!!'

Beauty's Father: Well, you see, the thing about that is. . .

(later)

Beauty: Hello, Beast. My, I must say, you are astoundingly hideous to behold.

Beast: Marry me.

Beauty: No.

Beast: Marry me.

Beauty: No.

Beast: Marry me.

Beauty: No.

Beast: Marry me.

Beauty: No.

Beast: Marry me.

Beauty: No.

Beast: Marry me.

Beauty: Okay!

Beast: Really?

Beauty: No.

Beast: (grumbles)

Beauty: I miss my dad.

Beast: If I let you go see him, will you marry me?

Beauty: (shifty eyes) Er. . . Maybe.

Beast: Then you can go.

Beauty: Thanks.

(leaves)

(returns)

Beauty: In my time away, I've decided that I'm desperately in love with you, and I don't care that you are extremely dreadfully disgusting on the outside, because you are beautiful on the inside.

Beast: Should I be happy, or offended?

(spell breaks)

Beauty: Wow. Now you're astonishingly handsome, AND you're a Prince.

Beast: That went surprisingly well for me.

(kiss)

THE END.
