Then she suddenly saw an old woman with a spindle, diligently spinning her flax. Since first time seeing a spindle, the lovely Princess was so curious and interested.She came near and asked the old woman for permission to play with the strangle wheel. Then all of a sudden, she pricked her finger on the needle of the spinning wheel. In that very moment she slowly fell back, and lay in a deep sleep. At this time, the mysterious old woman was reverting to true appearance as the Evil Fairy that cursed the Princess. The Evil fairy left jauntiness, leave the Princess sleep in the forest.

You already said both things earlier in your post.
    Welcome to the forum.

    I don't have time to check your story at the moment but I have made corrections to the opening of your post above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I have two comments for a start:

    1. The tenses in the first paragraph are rather confusing with the present and continuous used. The subsequent paragraphs are in the past tense.

    2. The princess did not live with the king and queen until she was twelve years old when the "Three Good Fairies" brought her to live with them. I thought the beginning of the story is rather strange without telling who the princess lived with before she turned twelve and why she was separated from her parents.
