Once upon a time there was a princess, she was both kind and good, and she was also docile. 

But everything is this life changes, her youth sings its swan song. 

She looked at herself smiling, blood spatter on white feathers.  

Staring back at her, her reflection asked: “What do you want?” and she could only answer “I don’t know.” 

Because Eve took a bite off the apple and women have been hungry since. 

And she lived happily 

She took a deep breath, stared into her own eyes. 

Ever. 

It was the gaze of a woman, who knows she has won.  

After.
