Adam doesn't really have time to get a really good sulk going, after he's turned into a Beast, because princesses start turning up on his doorstep begging for sanctuary. None of them are his princess, but it is awfully nice to have company...
Belle is slightly terrified of the Beast who collects princesses, but to save her father, she'll dare anything.

In truth, it begins with this: Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young Prince lived in a shining castle.
(Or: The Beast was perhaps not as forthcoming about the circumstances behind as his curse as he could have been.)
