THE WHISPERING GLASS

A Retelling of Snow White

I was never as naïve as I appeared. The big, bright eyes and crimson lips were a facade, a masterpiece painted on an unfortunate and ordinary canvas – a charm. She’d known that well. That my nuances and faults were as real as the powder-white fairness of my skin. And unlike the rest, whose vision of me was crafted of pure fantasy, she’d loved me regardless.

So it’s important that you know: when she offered me the apple, I took it willingly. I knew that it was poisoned. I tasted the energy of its magic in the air, felt it the moment my fingers wrapped around its shined red flesh.

But I bit it anyway.

I looked into her eyes and bit so she’d know. I did it for her. With the full intent of taking my final breath.
