Long ago, in a far away land. . A lovely princess lived in a shimmering castle. Her name was Charlotte. Though she had everything her heart desired. . She was spoiled. Upon the deaths of her parents, she became selfish and unkind.
One night. . An old beggar came to the castle. Offering a single Rose in exchange for shelter from the bitter cold.
Disgusted by the old beggar's appearance. . She sneered at the gift. And turned the beggar away. He warned her not to be deceived by appearances. For beauty is found within.
The Princess dismissed him again. And the old beggar's ugliness melted away to reveal a creature they all feared. A figure who resembled death
The Princess tried to apologize, but it was too late. For the young death had seen that there was no love in her heart. So as punishment. . He turned her into a hideous demon.
He cast a spell on the castle and all who lived there.
Ashamed of her form, the demon sealed herself away in her castle. With a magic mirror as her only window to the outside world.
The rose was actually an enchanted Rose. Which would bloom Until her twenty first year. If she could learn another and earn THEIR love in return. . The spell would be broken. If not. . Things would stay this way for all of time.
As years passed. She fell into despair. For who could learn to love. . A demon?
(A/N: yes I am aware that the fans who ship Charlie and Alastor did a similar fan comic. BUT. . The original/animated Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney film. And I felt it would be nice to see Hazbin version . . With the canon couples.
And yes I know some of you are going to complain that Charlie's appearance isn't really that beastly. . So, I changed it in this story. How? Find out in the next chapter)
