Six Sentence Sunday

I thought I’d get in on Six Sentence Sunday this week, to start getting you guys ready for THE MAGIC MIRROR AND THE SEVENTH DWARF.

This is a conversation between Ange, the princess and Richard, the prince. Richard is trying to convince her to flee from her jealous stepmother because he has just pronounced Ange fairest of all.

“But I’m not! Her beauty is legend, and while I—”

“The mirror has pronounced you the fairest of all, therefore you are. How do you think her beauty became legend in the first place?”

She stared at him for a moment.

“Now, let’s go,” he said.

This beauty-in-the-eye-of-the-beholder theme is one I keep up throughout the book.

    • Thank you. I always thought a defined sort of beauty was a flaw in the original story.

      There were not nearly as many plot holes in Snow White as there was in Sleeping Beauty, though. On the whole, an easier story to work with.
