Many years ago in a faraway kingdom, a queen gave birth to a beautiful girl.
For the feast of the baptism, the kings invited all the fairies of the kingdom, but unfortunately forgot to invite the most evil.
Although it was not invited, the Banshee was presented to the castle, and passed in front of the cradle of the little, put a curse saying: “When I was sixteen pierced with a spindle and die.” At that, a good fairy who was nearby, gave a charm to mitigate the terrible sentence: “When stuck, instead of dying, the girl will be asleep for a hundred years and only the kiss of a good prince will awaken.”
Years passed and the princess became a very beautiful girl. The king had ordered all the spindles were destroyed the castle in order to prevent the princess would prick. But that was no use. At age sixteen, the princess went to an unknown location of the castle and there met a deaf old was spinning. The princess asked him to let him try.

The golden wand of the fairy rose and drew a spiral in the air magic. At the moment all the inhabitants of the castle slept. In the castle all was silent. Nothing moved, no fire or air. All asleep.
Around the castle, began to grow a strange and lush forest that was completely hidden in the castle over time. But at the end of the century, a prince, who was hunting there, came to its surroundings. The wounded animal to escape his pursuer, found no better hiding place than the thickness of the bushes that surrounded the castle.
The prince alighted from his horse and with his sword and tried to get through. Progressed slowly because the web was very dense. Disheartened, he was about to retreat when, setting aside a branch, he saw something … Continued to move up to the castle. The drawbridge was lowered. Subject took the horse by the reins, entered, and when he saw all the people lying on the stairs, in hallways, in the yard, he thought with horror that they were dead. Then he reassured to see that they were only asleep. “Awake Awake,” screamed over and over again, but to no avail.
More and more surprised, walked into the castle until you reach the room where the princess slept. For a long time looked at his face serene, full of peace and beauty born in his heart he felt the love that had always hoped in vain. Excited, he approached her, took the girl’s hand and gently kissed her … With that kiss, the girl suddenly woke up and opened his eyes, awakening from sleep very long. Seeing the prince before him, he murmured: “At last you have arrived! In my dreams cherished long-awaited moment. “The spell was broken.
The princess rose and held out his hand to the prince. At that time the castle awoke. Everyone got up, looking surprised and saying what it was that had happened. Realizing ran overjoyed with the princess, more beautiful and happier than ever.
