BEAST: AN ANTHOLOGY

Eight stories inspired by the classic fairytale, Beauty and the Beast. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Wildlife Conservation Network.

A TALE ABOUT changing your fate once it’s already written because knowing your future can be a blessing or a curse.
. . .
A TALE OF blurred lines and two unlikely souls who find a way to make peace with their beasts—after all, life is hard, but death is harder.
. . .
A TALE OF a heartbreaker prince and the young sorceress who puts a tragic spell on him—it’s no surprise he wants revenge—but first, he must understand what it truly means to be called a monster. 
. . .
A TALE OF a woman who wanted to live beyond the gates of her manor, and the Beast who broke down her walls.
. . .
A TALE OF a beastly storm that traps a doctor and his secretary in the basement of the hospital they work in—and what happens when old wounds are torn apart and two pasts collide.
. . .
A TALE OF two men defined by how they look and the one woman who refuses to see it. 
. . .
A TALE OF a book thief who is kidnapped by a rival bandit and learns the meaning of true sacrifice. 
. . .
A TALE ABOUT a man who wants nothing more than to die, and how he saves the life of someone who is dying to live.
. . .

  • Sometimes I am loyal to a fault. Sometimes I forget that to be true to others, I must first be true to myself. And for a time, I lost sight of who I was because it was no longer an option to me. I was broken down and barely surviving day to day. I dreamed of movement most of all, but I could no longer move the way I used to. That person I was had been taken away, and I remained loyal to friends because there was nothing else left of me. Nothing felt right. Not even my own flesh and bones. And for so long I didn't believe I would ever find a home here again. The person in the reflection was not the person I wanted. So I stayed blindly loyal to those I loved believing they would keep me alive a little longer. But things gradually began to change. I watched them destroy and did little to hault there wicked ways because I was already a pile of rubble. What could I do against people so vile? 
But there was foundation long forgotten. There was solid ground underneath the destruction. And when their red shown brightly against my dark sky, I knew another hit was coming and that I might not survive. But I traced this rock of faith that did not break. I looked in the mirror to see a girl with a familiar face then dressed myself in stone, the shards leftover of the girl I was, and I stood firm in what I believed was good and right and just... I broke the bonds of friendship to save the girl who knew right from wrong.

  • Sometimes you have to take care of yourself first. Sometimes people in your life won't be accepting of your needs. Let them go. If they aren't understanding during those difficult times, they didn't really care before.

  • For a long te I believed I was stuck. I never thought I would escape the hold my depression had over me, and to be honest, some days still pull me down hard. But I wrote this piece as a reminder to myself.
°
Every day is bright with opportunity. Every day is a chance to react differently. Every day is a sunrise of forgiveness and fresh starts.
°
"Start over, my darling. Be brave enough to find the life you want and courageous enough to chase it. Then start over and love yourself the way you were always meant to."

I wrote this piece for me. I shared this piece for you.

Why wait for January to start over? ⁣⁠
Why not now? In this moment? ⁣⁠

‘Start over, my darling. Be brave enough to find the life you want and courageous enough to chase it. Then start over and love yourself the way you were always meant to be.’⁣⁠

I stumbled upon these words by @madalynbeck and decided they are just as applicable to December as to January. As to March or to April or to whenever…⁣⁠
⁣⁠
~⁣⁠
⁣⁠
So, here’s to starting over. Every moment you’d like. I’ll drink a glühwein to that!⁣⁠
⁣⁠
~⁣⁠
⁣⁠
There’s one month left to live this decade. Don’t make it an antechamber for January. ⁣⁠
Live life like you mean it. Starting today.⁣⁠

  • There is something to be said about those who know to hold their tongue when their chest is hot with anger. There is wisdom in the silence, for a bitter heart will only speak harsh words.
