Sleeping Beauty And The Beast
Chapter Twelve Happily Ever After?
Remy was on his horse, whistling 'once upon a dream' as he approached the cottage. He knocked on the door.
"Come in!" he heard someone say.
Remy went in and was surprised by a couple of White Queen's servants. He struggled, but ultimately was completely tied. White Queen and her raven watched the scene with deep satisfaction.
" Well, this is a pleasant surprise. I set my trap for a peasant, and lo! I catch a prince! Away with him. But gently, my pets, gently, I have plans for our royal guest." said White Queen.
The fairies were still on their way. As they arrived, they found the door open. They entered and found Remy's hat on the floor.
"White Queen!" said Ororo.
"She's got Prince Remy!" said Jean.
"At the forbidden mountain." said Kitty. "But we can't, we can't go there!"
"We can, and we must." said Ororo. "He's our only hope for our Rogue. Don't you understand, Remy must be her true love. They met each other an instantly Rogue fell in love with him all over again. He's the one who can break the spell."
The fairies reached White Queen's castle and cautiously approached it. They were surprised by some guards, but got in unnoticed. They found a window to a room where White Queen was having a feast, with her 'pets' dancing around a huge fire.
"What a pity prince Remy can't be here to enjoy the celebration. Come, we must go to the dungeon and cheer him up." said White Queen.
White Queen walked toward the dungeon. her raven and the fairies followed her. White Queen talked to Remy, who sat chained to the wall, head down.
"Oh come now, prince Remy. Why so melancholy? A wondrous future lies before you. You, the destined hero of a charming fairy tale come true." joked White Queen, though she sounded serious.
The fairies appeared in the window of the dungeon. White Queen used her magic stick to depict the following.
"Behold, King Logan's castle, and in yonder topmost tower, dreaming of her true love, the princess Aurora-Marie. But see the gracious whim of fate. Why, 'tis the self same peasant maid, who won the heart of our noble prince but yesterday and apparently months before that. Yes, Rogue is the Princess Aurora-Marie, Remy, the one you were meant to marry." explained White Queen. Remy looked at the magic stick's image it was showing of the Princess. His red on black eyes looked shocked. "She is indeed most wondrous fair. Sun of auburn in her hair with snow as strands of her such fair hair, lips that shame the red, red rose. In ageless sleep she finds repose. The years roll by, but a hundred years to a steadfast heart are 'bout a day. And now, the gates of the dungeon part, and the prince is free to go his way. Off he rides on his noble steed ..."
In White Queen's imagery, the prince is shown to be old, anything but what she's telling. Her voice dripped with sarcasm.
"... a valiant figure, straight and tall, to wake his love with love's first kiss, and prove that true love conquers all."
Remy immediately got up and struggled in his chains.
"'Ow dare you do dis t' 'er! You're an evil witch, ya know dat!" Remy shouted.
"Why thank you, I try." Remy struggled again.
"I'm goin' t' save de woman I love, an' I'm goin' t' kill you fo' what you'vedone t' 'er!"
"Come, my pet. Let us leave our noble prince with these happy thoughts." said White Queen.
Outside the dungeon, she locked the door.
The fairies approached Remy.
"Shh, no time to explain." said Ororo.
Using their magic, they opened Remy's chains and the doorlock.
"Wait, prince Remy. The road to true love may be barriered by still many more dangers, which you alone will have to face. So arm thyself with this enchanted shield of virtue and this mighty sword of truth. For these weapons of righteousness will triumph over evil." explained Ororo as Remy looked at the sword and shield.
Just outside the dungeon, the raven waited, which flew off screaming. The fairies and Remy started upwards the stairs. The raven had called White Queen's servants, which came streaming downstairs. Remy fights some of them, but then they jumped a window. Some rocks were dropped towards Remy.
"Remy, watch out!" shouted Ororo.
Ororo turned the rocks into soap-bubbles. A wall of arrows was shot but quickly turned into flying flowers. Kitty freed Samson. Remy rode off on Samson towards the gate, where hot oil was thrown. Jean turned it into a rainbow. The raven flew towards White Queen's tower, trying to wake her. He was followed by Kitty, who first failed to hit him with her magic. At last, she turned him into a stone raven just outside White Queen's door. White Queen appeared in the door.
"No!" she shouted as she saw Remy ride off towards King Logan's castle.
"Hurry, hurry, Remy!" shouted Jean.
White Queen threw two spells, but cannot stop them.
"A forest of thorn shall be his tomb.
Born through the skies on a fog of doom.
Now go with the curse and serve me well,
Round Logan's castle cast by spell!" she shouted.
A black cloud appeared over the castle. Bolds of lightning struck everywhere, causing the growth of thick thorny bushes. Remy had to stop before them.
Remy stopped only shortly, and then started cutting a way with his sword. Finally, he is through.
"No, it cannot be!" shouted White Queen. She transported herself in front of Remy. "Now shall you deal with me, old prince, and all the powers of hell!" suddenly White Queen transformed into a huge dragon.
Remy courageously started towards her. But he has no chance against the fire-spying dragon. After a short fight, he must retreat. At a wall, he had to stop.
Remy climbed up, only to see that he is now trapped on a cliff. At another blaze of fire he lost his shield.
The fairies at the prince, they combine their magic on the sword/
"Now sword of truth fly swift and sure,
That evil die and good endure!" said Ororo.
"Fo' Rogue!" Remy shouted as he threw the sword towards the dragon, which hit her. White Queen screamed and collapsed. She turned slowly into dust, never to be seen again…
Remy and the fairies got inside the castle and up to the tower, where Rogue lay on her bed. Remy looked at her beautiful auburn hair spread across the pillow. Her two white stripes fallen at each side of her face. Her eyes were shut delicately and her red rose lips were pressed out, no man could resist them.
He slowly walked towards her and looked down at her angelic face. He smiled and slowly lowered himself down, and gave her a faint kiss on the red rose lips that shammed the red red rose.
The Princess began to awake, she saw Remy and began to smile. He smiled back and she muttered her words.
"Oh Remy…" The fairies looked to one another and smiled. They new that with Remy's kiss, Rogue or Princess Aurora-Marie, would remember everything that had happened to her and Remy.
Inside the throne room, everyone awakened, too.
"Oh, ah, forgive me, Jean-Luc, the wine ... Now, you were saying?" said Logan, thinking he drifted off for a mere second.
"I was? oh yes, well, after all, Logan, dis is de fourteenth century." carried on Jean-Luc.
"Yes, you said that a moment ago." saod Logan.
"Well, t' come right t' de point, my boy Remy says he's goin' t' marry ..."
Jean-Luc was interrupted by a fanfare, (or to be more precise, by the first notes from the 'Sleeping Beauty Waltz'). The fairies watched the scene from a balcony, as Princess Aurora-Marie and Prince Remy appeared arm in arm, walking down the stairs from above, staring into one another's eyes. Rogue was wearing a beautiful pink dress which sparkled.
"It's Aurora-Marie, she's here!" said Logan in happiness.
"Oh are baby girl has returned." said Raven.
"And Remy!" said Jean-Luc in disbelief as Remy had told him he was going to marry the same girl he met at the castle in France, Rogue.
Aurora-Marie and Remy knelt down before the throne. Aurora-Marie then fondly embraced her mother, Raven Howlett.
"What does dis mean, boy? I don' understand." whispered Jean-Luc to Remy. "I t'ought you wanted t' marry de gal what broke de curse o' de beast, dat Rogue."
Remy was too busy looking at Aurora-Marie hugging her parents than his father but her then snapped out of it and turned to his father.
"Father, 'f you didn't notice, dat is Rogue. I didn't know she was the Princess Aurora-Marie I was meant t' marry, turns out, she is." explained Remy. "An' t'ank de Gods fo' dat." Remy added.
"But i…I…" Rogue came over and planted a kiss on King Jean-Luc's cheek.
Remy smiled and made Aurora-Marie turn her attention to him.
"So mah beautiful cherie, may I have dis dance?" asked Remy as he held out his hand. Rogue laughed.
"Why ah think ah'll let ya, swamp rat." said Aurora-Marie as she gently put her hand in his. They both walked to the dance floor which was empty and started to dance.
On the balcony, Jean had a tear running down her cheek.
"Why, Jean, what's the matter, dear?" masked Ororo.
"Oh, I just love happy endings." said Jean.
"Yes, I do, too." said Kitty. She then notices that Aurora-Marie's dress is pink and not blue. "Change it blue!" Aurora-Marie's dress became blue, but she and Remy did not notice as they were too lost in each other.
"Oh no my dears, it's just the beginning." said Ororo. She then noticed that Aurora-Marie's dress was blue. "Oh, Blue? Pink!" the dress turned pink again, and blue again and pink again and blue again and so on.
"I know you,
I walked with you
Once upon a dream"
"I know you,
The gleam in your eyes
Is so familiar a gleam And I know it's true
That visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you I know what you'll do."
Aurora-Marie and Remy smiled at one another.
"You'll love me at once
The way you did
Once upon a dream."
'Certain as the sun, rising in the east tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, Beauty and the beast!"
Rogue and Remy kissed each other passionatly.
"Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, Beauty and the beast!"
And They Lived Happily Ever After
