A hundred years went by. Then it happened that a young prince went to that land and was told the story of the enchanted castle.
At once he said, "I will find this Sleeping Beauty and awaken her!"
The next day he set out for the castle.
When he came to the place where the hedge of trees had been growing, he found nothing but flowers, which opened a pathway for him.
In the stables the prince saw the horses lying asleep.
On the roof sat the birds with their heads under their wings.
When he went into the castle, the flies were asleep upon the walls.
The cook in the kitchen was still pointing her finger at the boy who had forgotten his errand.
Inside the castle the king and queen and all the other people slept peacefully.
The prince went on from room to room and at last came to the tower, where the princess was sleeping.
So beautiful did she look that he knelt and kissed her.
At his touch the princess opened her eyes and smiled at him.
Together they went down and woke the king and the queen.
Then all the people in the castle woke up and looked at each other in surprise.
The horses in the stables stood up and shook themselves.
The birds on the roof raised their heads from under their wings, looked around, and flew into the country.
The flies buzzed and flew from the walls.
The fire in the kitchen began to roast the meat, and the cook shook her finger and scolded the boy.
Then, the prince married the beautiful princess, and they lived happily ever after.
