Captured

And so the fairytale goes. Through no fault of her own, a lovely princess is put under a terrible enchantment. The only way to save her is to capture her when she is in her true form, then hold on tight as she changes. To let go would mean certain death, to hang on would be to face his greatest fears.
.
Only true love will triumph, because only true love has the courage to stand firm in the face of overwhelming danger and fear.
.
Our hero bravely seizes the girl in his arms. In a whirl of mindless fury she changes into a menacing sharp-toothed tiger. He grimly hangs on. She becomes a great eagle who's cruel beak and talons wound his straining arms. He tenderly catches her in his hands as she melts into a sparkling dewdrop. And perserveres when she threatens him as a fierce fire-breathing dragon.
.
When she lies exhausted in our hero's arms, he kisses her and the enchantment is broken.
.
And of course, they live happily ever after.
