'Fairest' Snippet

Here's a teaser from 'Fairest.

Standing before the ring, I found myself swaying to the music. My hands lifted, moving to the same rhythm. My fingers flexed and danced, tracing out a series of movements. I realized I was shaping the words of the song with my hands. I’d never done anything like this before, but my fingers moved, as if they had a magic of their own. They spelled out the lyrics, in a language for me, alone.

Who is the fairest of them all?
You, me, or her?
In castle, cottage, or circle small
What will you endure?
Are you just fair of face and eye?
Or is your fairness true?

When under the sleeping curse you lie
