How did sleeping beauty wake up?

Once upon a time in a kingdom far away a beautiful princess was born with a wonderful future. An evil witch with a heavy curse wishes “When you are 16, beautiful and small princess, you will fall into a deep slumber and only the kiss of true love will wake you up” And when the time passed at 16, just as the curse says, the beautiful princess falls into a deep sleep and the kingdom is silent. 100 years pass and a prince appears to the beautiful princess, sees her sleeping beautifully and gives her a real kiss on the lips. And so the curse is broken and the beautiful princess wakes up and the kingdom is filled with joy.

  • Was the prince right to kiss her?
  • Did the princess want to be saved?
  • While she was sleeping in deep sleep did she want someone to kiss her?
