It was a great and happy day.
A baby was born to the king and queen!
Royal visitors, witches and fairies lined up to bless the child and give presents.
Only one fairy, old, ugly and versed in dark magic was not invited.
Being a cantankerous sort of elemental anyway, she came uninvited.
Everyone watched her enter with trepidation.
They all knew she was uninvited.
When she got to the crib, three of the good fairies accosted her, one grabbing and stabbing her with the spindle.
The evil old fairy fell into a sleep, but being such a despicable sort of sorceress slept for ten thousand years instead of the proper hundred years that the lovely little princess would have remained in slumber.
When she woke, the kingdom had been conquered by the Romans, who automatically put her to death.
Moral? If there was one, it's good overcomes evil. And history alway overcomes all.
