Mirror of the Evil Queen

I scan the whole country for the queen’s rivals, but no one has surpassed her beauty. Not yet, but the time is coming when none of her potions will serve to keep her skin smoother, her cheeks rosier, or her hair shinier than Snow-White’s.

She’s going to hate me so much that I expect one day she will shatter me.

In any case, her rage won’t be pretty.
