Even after doing things for sixteen years without magic, the fairies still had trouble with (为…苦恼) some tasks. While Flora and Merryweather struggled to make a dress, Fauna wondered how exactly to fold eggs into cake batter (面糊).
At the same time, Briar Rose happily visited with her animal friends. She told them that she had met a handsome prince . . . but only in her dreams. “They say if you dream a thing more than once, it’s sure to come true,” she sighed (叹气) as she began singing and dancing.
There actually was a prince nearby! Prince Phillip (菲力王子) spotted the beautiful girl and stepped out of the bushes to join her in a dance. They both felt as if they were in a dream.
Briar Rose invited the young man to see her again that evening at the cottage. Neither knew the other’s name, only that they had fallen instantly—and deeply (深深地)—in love.
Back at the cottage, Merryweather insisted (坚持认为) that the fairies give up on sewing and baking and instead use their magic to make everything perfect for Briar Rose. With the wave of a wand (魔杖), a dress was created in an instant. But Flora wanted it to be pink, while Merryweather wanted it to be blue. As the fairies argued, they kept changing the dress’s color by sending magical sparks (亮片) back and forth.
The colorful sparks soared (向上飞去) up and out of the chimney (烟囱) as Maleficent’s pet raven flew by. He stopped and saw Briar Rose return to the cottage. Then the wicked bird listened to all that was said before returning to Maleficent with a full report.
Briar Rose loved the dress and the cake, but she couldn’t wait to tell her aunties about the wonderful young man she had just met. The fairies were shocked and hurried to tell the girl her true identity—and that it had already been arranged (安排，达成协议) that she would marry a prince.
Many a young girl would delight at finding out she was a princess betrothed (订婚) to a prince. But as Aurora dutifully (忠诚地) accompanied the fairies to the castle, her only thoughts were of the young man she had just met— and already fallen in love with (爱上).
Before the sun set, the fairies sneaked Aurora into the castle. They presented her with her crown (皇冠) and gave her a few minutes alone. Aurora cried. She was heartbroken knowing that fate separated (分离) her from her true love.
