Featured Fiction: The Minotaur’s Wife | Megan Arkenberg

27 Jan

Our featured fiction this week is The Minotaur’s Wife by Megan Arkenberg

The Minotaur's Wife

I think it is fair to say that when you saw me for the first time, small and thin for my age and unimposing in a poppy-colored wedding gown, you thought you knew precisely what you were getting. You knew my brother—knew him too well, the rumors said—and at seventeen, I was much like Sphairos to look at, too pale, too skinny, my dark hair dry and thin. But you thought I had my brother’s thoughts as well, spidery and tangled and poppy-colored, and in that, my husband, you were quite wrong.
