“Yours is the most beautiful soul I have ever known… How can I not fall in love?”
Maria was running out of luck. Her fiancé got someone pregnant, her family betrayed her, and she got fired from work as a housekeeper in Berlin. She had to leave at night.
Hinabol yata siya ng kamalasan hanggang sa daan dahil nasiraan siya ng sasakyan sa gitna ng madilim na highway. Suddenly, a car stopped and from it emerged “Beast”—an almost rude, tall bearded man who lived in a castle. He took her to that castle.
Puwede sigurong mangarap nang gising si Maria kung hindi lang siya inalok ng lalaki ng trabaho—ang maglinis ng castle dahil wala itong maid kahit isa. Well, she was never the kind of girl who believed in fairy tales anyway. Ang motto niya ay simpleng “time is gold.” At kung babayaran ng lalaki ang kanyang oras, walang kaso kahit mag-eskoba siya ng inodoro. Ang datung ay datung.
And so Maria cleaned the castle… But what if the “Beast” was straight-out gorgeous that she was slowly getting attracted to him? Nagkakatotoo ba ang mga fairy tale o hanggang walis-walis lang talaga siya ng palasyo?
