A few years ago, in a faraway place called Louisiana, a young Princess lived in a shining trailer. Although she had everything her heart desired, the princess was spoiled, selfish, and unkind.
One winter's night, an grumpy drunk lesbian from the bar came to the trailer and offered her a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the Princess sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away.

In Chickasaw County there lived a woman named Belle. She was very beautiful and a little odd. She cared only for her books and always felt out of place.
Her father, Bobby Ray, was also a great reader. But while Belle read about adventure and carpentry, her father studied technical books. Bobby Ray was an inventor - a genious, according to Belle; a meth-head, according to folks in town.

At last Bobby Ray came to a trailer and stumbled inside. There he was greeted by Mrs. Potts the teapot, Cogsworth the mantelclock, and Lumiere the candelabra. But before he had time to marvel over these strange creatures, an even stranger one appeared - the Beast!
Bobby Ray stared at the Beast in horror. The creature howled angrily, then scooped Bobby Ray up and carried him to a shed out back.
Continued from Beast Meets Belle
The hot winter passed pleasantly for Belle and the Beast. Belle thought of her as her dearest friend. The Beast dreamt of little but the beautiful Belle.
One night while Belle was showing her how to dance, the Beast stammered, "Belle, are you happy here - with me?"
"Yes," said Belle, but the Beast saw a trace of sadness in her eyes. Then Belle added, "If only I could see my father again, even for a minute."
"You can," the Beast said, handing her a magic mirror.
