Finally, Belle discovered Maurice locked in a tower. "Papa! We have to get you out of there!" Suddenly she heard a voice from the shadows.
"What're you doing?"
Belle gasped. "Please let my father go. Take me instead!"
"You would take his place?"
Belle asked the voice to step into the light and was horrified when she saw the huge, ugly Beast. To save her father, however, Belle agreed to stay in the Beast's castle forever.
