People often forget that Belle from Beauty and the Beast has easily attempted to run away the moment the Beast showed his anger. What brought her back was that he showed a significant amount of aiding her instead of leaving her out to the wolves the way a selfish man would.

Some people keep forgetting that Belle didn’t shut up about Beast’s temper, and told him off for it. We keep forgetting that Belle had a voice.
