One day, many years later, a handsome prince came riding in the forest surrounding the palace. He touched the prickly hedge but the thorns turned into     roses.
The prince walked through the hedge, easily pushing the branches out of the way. He was surprised at all the sleeping people he saw.

He climbed up the tower and found the sleeping princess. He thought she was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen and bent down to kiss her.

Immediately, the spell was broken. One hundred years had passed. The king and queen and everyone else in the palace woke up.

The cook put a cake in the oven, the gardener started work in the garden and the birds started singing again.
