The prince apologized, but now she had realized the selfishness of his heart, so punished him turning into a hideous beast with a spell and turned the castle with all its people. Now the appearance of Prince corresponded to the brutality of his heart, so he ashamed and locked himself in the castle for long years. The only contact with the outside world, it was thanks to a magic mirror, which allowed him to see what was happening outside the walls of the castle. The fairy's pink was truly a magical rose and its petals would remain intact until the 21 th birthday of the Prince. If by then had learned to understand the meaning of love and this was reciprocated, before the last petal fall, his appearance would resume the human form, otherwise would remain a Beast for the rest of his days. More years passed, and more the Prince lost hopes, because he was convinced that because of his appearance to Beast, no woman, could never fall in love with him.
