One petal drops each day. If Belle can’t love me, we’ll never be human ever again. She’s so kind, so gentle. The way she took her father’s place, to be my prisoner. She’s even starting to trust me, teaching me how humans act. Ugh… Belle’s so beautiful and kind, I can’t stand it. I want to show her how much she means to me. All the workers are saying that I should show my feelings, what is inside. Oh, but I haven’t done that in years. I know, I’ll give her the best gift she has ever received. If the gift doesn’t make her fall for me, I don’t know what will. There it goes, the petal of the day. If she never loves me, I’ll be stuck in this dark castle forever.
