      The Beast thought his look determined him, and even though people hated him, Beauty revealed to him that it was his personality that matters. As they were too poor to have any servants, the girls had to work hard, like peasants, and the sons, for their part, cultivated the fields to earn their living. Immediately the two eldest set up lamentable outcries, and said all manner of ill-natured things to Beauty, who did not cry at all. Enraged, he tells the servants that if Belle does not eat with him, she will have to starve, then shuts himself away in the West Wing.

      During dinner, the Beast came to talk to Beauty. As soon as he sees Belle arriving at the castle, calling out for him, the Beast gains the will to fight Gaston. Her father told her, that Beast insisted on her keeping them herself, and immediately both gowns and trunk came back again. The horse stopped at the foot of the flight of steps leading to the terrace, and when they had dismounted her father led her to the little room he had been in before, where they found a splendid fire burning, and the table daintily spread with a delicious supper.

      Beauty very civilly thanked them that courted her, and told them she was too young yet to marry, but chose to stay with her father a few years longer. The family had lived about a year in this retirement, when the merchant received a letter with an account that a vessel, on board of which he had effects, was safely arrived. The eldest had married a gentleman, extremely handsome indeed, but so fond of his own person, that he was full of nothing but his own dear self, and neglected his wife. While she was wondering by what magic the Beast had transported them and herself to this strange place she suddenly heard her father's voice, and rushed out and greeted him joyfully. Nay, several gentlemen would have married her, though they knew she had not a penny; but she told them she could not think of leaving her poor father in his misfortunes, but was determined to go along with him into the country to comfort and attend him. When the two months have passed she envisions the Beast dying alone on the castle grounds and hastens to return despite her brothers' resolve to prevent her from doing so.

Beauty and the beast book

Before Maurice enjoys some food laid out on a table, the teacup Chip starts moving around and speaking to Maurice. Nay, several gentlemen would have married her, though they knew she had not a penny; but she told them she could not think of leaving her poor father in his misfortunes, but was determined to go along with him into the country to comfort and attend him.

Every evening Beast paid her a visit, and talked to her, during supper, very rationally, with plain good common sense, but never with what the world calls wit; and Beauty daily discovered some valuable qualifications in the monster, and seeing him often had so accustomed her to his deformity, that, far from dreading the time of his visit, she would often look on her watch to see when it would be nine, for the Beast never missed coming at that hour.

Enraged, he tells the servants that if Belle does not eat with him, she will have to starve, then shuts himself away in the West Wing. This morning she decided to amuse herself in the garden, for the sun shone, and all the fountains were playing; but she was astonished to find that every place was familiar to her, and presently she came to the brook where the myrtle trees were growing where she had first met the Prince in her dream, and that made her think more than ever that he must be kept a prisoner by the Beast.

The two eldest answered, that they would not leave the town, for they had several lovers, who they were sure would be glad to have them, though they had no fortune; but the good ladies were mistaken, for their lovers slighted and forsook them in their poverty.

Beauty agrees to this and is presented with an enchanted ring which allows her to wake up in her family's new home in an instant when turned three times around her finger.

The merchant was so afflicted at the thoughts of losing his daughter, that he had quite forgot the chest full of gold, but at night when he retired to rest, no sooner had he shut his chamber door, than, to his great astonishment, he found it by his bedside; he was determined, however, not to tell his children, that he was grown rich, because they would have wanted to return to town, and he was resolved not to leave the country; but he trusted Beauty with the secret, who informed him, that two gentlemen came in his absence, and courted her sisters; she begged her father to consent to their marriage, and give them fortunes, for she was so good, that she loved them and forgave heartily all their ill usage.

The woman turns out to be the Prince's mother whose joy quickly falters when she finds out that Beauty is not of noble birth. All we can do is to fasten them up and leave them ready. For this, she will be rewarded.

His subjects received him with joy. This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes. He also gives her a magic mirror that allows her to see anywhere on earth. Then he went down into the garden, and though it was winter everywhere else, here the sun shone, and the birds sang, and the flowers bloomed, and the air was soft and sweet.

Then you will find your breakfast waiting for you here, and the horse you are to ride will be ready in the courtyard. He was within thirty miles of his own house, thinking on the pleasure he should have in seeing his children again, when going through a large forest he lost himself.

After her mother passed away when Jeanne was only eleven, she and her sisters were tutored by two wealthy women who later on enrolled them into a convent school in Ernemont in Rouen. His sons and daughters, who had been very uneasy at his long absence, rushed to meet him, eager to know the result of his journey, which, seeing him mounted upon a splendid horse and wrapped in a rich mantle, they supposed to be favorable.

Belle assures them that the Beast is kind and gentle, and that he's her friend. But your insolence shall not go unpunished.Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book totally changed AND challenged them all.
