Suddenly, a glowing (发光的) green orb appeared and put Aurora into a trance (入迷). She followed the orb up a winding (螺旋的) staircase.
Soon Aurora found herself in a room with a spinning wheel and a spindle!
Maleficent’s voice bellowed, “Touch the spindle. Touch it, I say!” Aurora couldn’t help (抑制不住) but obey.
When the fairies finally reached the hidden room, they saw Maleficent standing in triumph (胜利的姿态) beside the fallen princess. “You poor simple fools,” Maleficent cried. “Thinking you could defeat (打败) me, me, the mistress (女主人) of all evil!” Then, with a wicked laugh, she disappeared.
The three fairies took Aurora to a tower room, where they placed her gently (轻轻地) on a bed. Tears ran down their cheeks at this cruel turn of events.
“King Stefan and the Queen will be heartbroken when they find out,” sobbed Merryweather. To prevent any more sadness, the fairies flew about the castle, putting everyone in a deep sleep until Aurora could awaken.
Not long after, Phillip arrived at the cottage, expecting to see the lovely girl from the forest. Instead, Maleficent and her henchmen were waiting. The evil fairy wanted to ensure�that Briar Rose’s young prince would not save her.
After locking Prince Phillip in her dungeon (地牢), Maleficent revealed that the girl he had fallen in love with was Princess Aurora—and that she was under a spell that only True Love’s Kiss could break.
When wicked Maleficent finally left, the good fairies came to the�rescue�(解救). They�released Phillip from his chains and armed him with the enchanted (施了魔法的) Shield of Virtue (美德之盾) and the mighty Sword of Truth (真理之剑).
With help from the fairies, Phillip fought his way past Maleficent’s henchmen and through a wall of thorny (荆棘) bushes (丛).
Suddenly, Maleficent turned herself into an enormous fire-breathing dragon! Phillip bravely used his shield (盾牌) to protect himself from (保护…不受…的伤害)�the heat and force of the flames.
Teetering at the edge of a cliff, Phillip took aim and threw his sword, striking (刺，击)�Maleficent in the chest. She stumbled (摔倒) and fell. The evil fairy was defeated.
Phillip raced to Aurora’s bedside. He knelt down and gently kissed his true love. Her eyes fluttered open and she smiled at him. The horrible spell was broken!
The good fairies quickly woke up everyone in the castle. King Hubert, King Stefan, and the Queen yawned and stretched (伸懒腰), but no one realized that they had all been asleep.
Phillip and Aurora entered the room and bowed before the�throne�(王座). Then Aurora rushed into the arms of her parents and felt their warm embrace (拥抱) for the first time in sixteen years.
Prince Phillip took Princess Aurora’s hand. Then, just as they had when they first met, the happy couple began to dance. And the entire kingdom rejoiced (快乐).
