Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme.
After watching the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, it was impossible for me not to be moved. I was so moved that, just days after watching the movie and being in a constant state of movie magic nostalgia, an idea for a story suddenly came to me.
Because of the movie I developed a new appreciation for the original characters of the story. But there was one character that boggled me… one that, after watching her in the movie only led me to ask a dozen questions in my mind.
It was because of this character that I began to develop a story, an origin story that leads up to the well-known and beloved tale we now know as Beauty and the Beast.
This is my first time (not counting when I was a kid) to write a short story, so despite the simple fairy tale-style telling I do hope you’ll like it. I’ve captured it in pictures for security purposes (swipers no swiping please), but also because the images can contain more of the words in one post. Do let me know what your thoughts are after reading it, and if you like it feel free to share this post with others!
