The poisoned apple
After an artificial pause, she continued to purr:
- For example, the young hunter, - maybe you remember? I think he taught you how to ride? - Well, anyway ... He too, like all men, was completely at the mercy of my charms. He lost his temper when he was near me ... So I made fun of having a little fun with him, if you know what I mean? - After all, the King is here far too seldom. And between you and me, who knows what he does when he's out and about? - Anyway, the hunter - his name was Johan, if I remember rightly ... He was only a small employee, but so passionate! Then, unfortunately, he had to leave ... But before he went, he gave me this as a souvenir or something ...
She lifted Liliana's chain with the dove into the air and let it dangle in front of her nose.
- Didn't you once have something similar? she asked, feigned ignorance.
Liliana recognised the necklace she had given Johan and blanched.
With satisfaction and feigned astonishment, the queen said:
- Oh, was it even yours in the end?
Liliana was silent and looked at it frozen. Tears stood in her eyes. The queen continued in a soft voice:
- Alas! My daughter, don't take it so tragically! - But I must tell you one thing: men prefer mature women, women with experience!
With a cold smile, the Evil Queen wished Liliana good night and pressed a kiss to her forehead with hard lips, then left the room.
The young woman was left agitated. She had not expected to hear good things about men from her mother ... but this was too much for her. The hunter Johan, the man who had won her heart, to whom she had given her necklace ... Was that possible? How had the queen got the necklace?
Liliana felt a painful stab in her heart just thinking about it. Oh, she hated her stepmother! She hated what she had said to her, and was confused and confused and devastated. She threw herself on the bed and wept. The queen, who had stayed to listen at the door, turned away contentedly and walked away.
The sad dwarfs and the glass coffin
The six marriage candidates all received a rejection. They were sad about this, because they had taken the gentle beauty into their hearts. They would have liked to make her happy and give their lives and strength for her. She had been the woman of their dreams ...
The Three Birds: Owl, Raven, Dove
Snow White fell ill and stayed in bed for the next few days. Now she had a lot of time to think. Slowly her thoughts became clearer. She realised that she never wanted to become like the evil queen who ruled over men, including her father, through eroticism (Owl). She thought: "The queen has no heart (Raven). But I have a heart, and I want to love!" (Dove). With this thought, her troubled soul came to rest again.
