Ava Zavora
“It was her favorite story, that she remembers, but she would be hard-pressed to retell it now, faithfully, as it had been told to her. All she could recall were frayed, sleep-watered images of a forgotten castle in the middle of a wild forest, stone statues, crimson roses, and a dark, animal presence never seen, but which stained her memory of the tale, even past its edges to the daylight after.”

Ava Zavora
“Some curses fade and leave nothing but the faintest mark, a tea stain on watered silk. There are those that are so malevolent that, upon defeat, explode in a fiery burst of sulfurous flames, burning everything they touch as they die. Others dissolve like morning mist in the brightness of the midday sun. Some cannot be defeated at all, but feed upon the energy spent trying to vanquish it, growing more and more potent with each failed attempt.

And then there are those ancient curses with deceptively simple antidotes that shatter like jagged shards of a vast mirror.

These curses may be broken, but never completely destroyed, sharp slivers of light distorted.”
Ava Zavora, Belle Noir: Tales of Love and Magic

“Once upon a time in faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle...

It was a very good story.
It often entertained the women who lay in her black hole of a room, manacled to a hard, cold bed.

“The Beast hesitated a moment at the doors of his room. It made Belle think of a scene from a book in which a boy, somewhat embarrassed, showed his family home or private room to a girl he liked. Fear of disappointing the guest, fear she would discover something uncouth about the host.

Like there could be anything worse than torn up furniture "nests" and bones everywhere, Belle thought wryly.”

Oh, a tiny voice in her mind said, you mean things like marching into a haunted castle and trading your life for your fathers'. Acting without thinking about consequences.”

Emma Theriault
“She was sure no one else would notice how, in anger, his voice still slipped into something akin to a growl. But Belle had lived with the Beast longer than she had lived with Lio. She could pick out the parts that lingered still, but she would never tell him as much.”
Emma Theriault, Rebel Rose

Emma Theriault
“Her husband had done away with the white paint and wig Bastien had insisted he wear to Versailles, and yet he was still confined to an outfit of his cousin's choosing, and unused to the ruffles and lace of Parisian finery. His discomfort reminded her of the time Lumière had wrangled the Beast into something of a courtly ensemble.
Even rough around the edges, Lio still looked princely standing there among them, shooting her apologetic glances when he could, knowing she was probably tallying all the absurdities she'd been made to endure thus far. He owed her. She had half a mind to demand he present her with another library for her troubles.”
Emma Theriault, Rebel Rose

Emma Theriault
“You're not the boy they knew; you're a man they don't recognize. Something marks you as separate, and they won't ever understand it."
"Because I was cursed." It wasn't a question, and Belle knew she had to tread carefully.
"It's more than that. The curse forced you to change, but the transformation was yours alone."
"Not just mine." He stepped to her and brought her hands to his chest.
Heat rose to her cheeks, but she leaned into the warmth. Lio tilted her chin up and kissed her, sending a shiver down her spine despite the summer heat. She pulled her hands from his and wrapped them around his neck, twining her fingers in his hair, trying to close any distance between them. Every kiss was like their first- capable of wrecking her and healing her in equal measure. A soft growl escaped his lips. She pulled away and looked up, watching as his blue eyes softened.
"I was in that darkness for ten years before you gave me a reason to seek the light," he whispered.”
Emma Theriault, Rebel Rose

“ভেবে নিই
মানুষও ফুলের মতো,
বর্ণ গন্ধ সৌন্দর্যে যে যার মতো অনন্য। মানুষের মনে
আবেদন হারাবে আরোপিত মানদণ্ড, সৌন্দর্যবোধের তুলনামূলক সাহিত্য।”
Charu Haque
