Christine Elizabeth Matthews

Visits Beauty and the Beast

 With all my love,

Great-Grandma Marti

~ Christmas 2015 ~


     One sunny day Christine Elizabeth Matthews, age 7, was strolling through a park in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  Beautiful red roses were blooming around her.  The roses reminded Chrissy of the story Great-Grandma Marti had once read to her

The story was about a handsome prince who was turned into an ugly Beast because he was so mean and selfish.


     While gazing at one rose, Chrissy instantly found herself inside a mysterious castle courtyard.  From a distance, Chrissy could see Beauty pick a lovely rose



     Suddenly, a frightening voice roared loudly, “Beauty, I will punish you for stealing that rose from my garden.  You must now stay in my castle forever!”


     A huge Beast appeared and ordered Beauty to be locked in the highest tower.    It was an elegant room filled with gowns and treasures fit for a queen.  “I’m so sad,” wept Beauty.  “I will never see my family again!”


     Chrissy heard Beauty crying and in a snap was in the tower room next to Beauty.  Chrissy whispered, “Do not cry, Beauty.  I am your friend and will help you find true happiness.”


     That evening, the Beast asked Beauty to join him for dinner.  Chrissy told Beauty to accept the Beast’s kind offer, and she did.  At dinner Beauty was so unhappy she said, “You are so ugly that I cannot eat.”


     Outraged by her ungratefulness, the Beast raised his giant claws and stomped away in anger.


     Chrissy remembered that Great-Grandma Marti had told her to be kind to others.  So Chrissy suggested to Beauty to make friends with the Beast.


     Beauty agreed, saying, “I have an idea.  I will join the Beast in the garden and read stories to him.”


     In time Beauty and the Beast became very good friends.  One day the Beast allowed Beauty to see her family through a magic mirror.  Tears came to the eyes of the homesick Beauty.  The Beast could not bear to see Beauty so unhappy and immediately sent her home on a mighty stallion.  Beauty was very glad to be home again.


     One day Chrissy came to visit Beauty.  She brought the magic mirror and said, “Beauty, the Beast is dying and only you can save him.”


     Beauty gasped when she saw the sick Beast and cried out, “I cannot allow the Beast to die.  I must go to save him.”


     Beauty left her home and raced toward the castle on the mighty stallion.  All the forest animals watched, hoping Beauty would arrive in time to save the Beast.  Beauty entered the castle gates and found the Beast lying limp and motionless in the garden.


     Beauty held the dying Beast in her arms.  She touched her lips against his and whispered, “Please do not die, my Beast.  I love you.”


     Magically, the Beast faded away and a handsome prince appeared in his place.  Chrissy cheered, “Hooray!  Hooray!  Beauty, you broke the magic spell.”


     The happy couple said, “Chrissy, thanks to you we have found true happiness.  Please stay with us forever.”


     Chrissy replied, “I promise to visit you again, but I must return to my home in Marshfield, Wisconsin.” 


     As Chrissy waved good-bye she thought, “I can’t wait to tell Great-Grandma Marti about my adventure with Beauty and the Beast.”
