On the way back the merchant passed a hedge of roses
surrounding a large castle. "Here l can pluck a rose for my Beauty!"
he though.But just as he plucked the rose a dreadful Beast appeared
and growled: "Why are you stealing my rose?" "I only wanted one to
give my beautiful daughter Beauty!" stammered the merchant.
You will pay for this flower with your life!" snarled
the Beast, "Or your beautiful daughter must come here and stay with
me! You have three days to decide."
