The Mirror Part 2

Anna realizes that in fact, all of this is real. She lays her head down on the floor and takes a nap. Anna shivers as she tries to get some sleep, but has trouble. She opens her eyes and looks out the glass window at the sky. For a minute, Anna forgets where she is. She gazes back into the mirror at herself and wishes she could be somewhere else.

Forthwith, Anna hears a voice, almost as if it is near. Anna takes a peek in the mirror and realizes the angel wings appearing on her back. She stares closely at the wings. She quickly turns her head to see if the angel wings are there but are not. Anna turns back around to face the mirror. The angel wings are still there. Anna, with confusion on her face, places her hands on the mirror. “What’s going on? Where am I?” Anna asks herself. “Please. Someone tell me what’s going on. I have no memory.” Anna tilts her head to the floor, sad and disappointed.

“Like you don’t know.” A voice loudly says. Anna quickly looks up, and glances around the room frightened. “In the mirror.” The voice declares. Anna stares into the mirror at her reflection as the angel wings appear. “It’s all in my head. The voice isn’t real.” Anna tells herself, trying to calm down. She takes a deep breath and closes her eyes, dreaming of palm trees and the sound of waves hitting the sand. Anna opens her eyes feeling relieved. “You’re not going to get rid of me that easily.” The voice adds.

Anna gapes into the mirror, frozen, unable to look away. “Who are you?” Anna asks curiously, keeping her eyes focused on the mirror.

“I’m you.” The voice in the mirror replies. Anna gazes into the mirror, deciding whether she should be scared or feel at ease.

“I don’t understand,” Anna responds afraid.
“You really don’t know?” The voice asks. Anna shakes her head no. She wishes she knew what the voice was talking about, but unfortunately, her memories are still gone.

“I lost my memories,” Anna answers sadly. The voice in the mirror is hesitant before responding.

“That’s a shame. (Pauses) I can help you recover them if you’d like.” The voice suggests.

“You can?” Anna asks with a smile on her face.

“Of course. You wanna find out who you are, right?” The voice asks. Anna shakes her head yes. “Let’s begin.” The voice happily says.



The Mirror Part 1

“Help! Please! Can anyone hear me?” A beautiful girl named Anna shouts. She frantically gazes around the dark room that surrounds her. Anna glances around and realizes the place doesn’t look familiar.

She notices the floor beneath her, is cold and musty. The room is castle-like with cobwebs. Anna also notices that her memory is gone, completely wiped out. She has no idea who she is and what happened to her.

Anna has long, dark brown hair and brown eyes. She is tall and pale. Anna is seventeen years old. She flashes her eyes down at her feet and recognizes that she is barefoot. Anna acts confused as she wonders where her shoes went

Anna picks her head up and stares at the large mirror in front of her. She smiles brightly as she admires herself and the beautiful white dress she has on. If only Anna could remember where she bought it or if someone gave it to her. Anna sighs as she looks into the mirror with exquisite designs all around the glass. She wonders where the sizeable brown mirror came from and why it is in the basement of the castle-like building.

Anna closes her eyes as she focuses on bringing her memories back, but no such luck. She opens her eyes, frustrated and tries again. Anna tries for the third time, but comes up empty and gives up.

All of a sudden, Anna hears a voice. She uncontrollably looks around the room scared. Anna brushes it off and assumes it’s nothing. Suddenly, the sound becomes louder, and Anna panics. “Hello? Is anyone there?” Anna asks frightened. No answer.

Anna begins to worry. She has no idea where she is and how she got here, wherever here is. Anna glances around the room and notices a stairway, leading to a door. She slowly stands on her bare feet and walks up the stairs. She rests her head against the door to see if she can hear voices. The room on the other side of the door is silent. The voices must have been in Anna’s head.

Abruptly, Anna hears a voice again. She shuts her eyes quickly and figures it is all in her head. She opens her eyes, and the voice is gone. “I’m going crazy,” Anna tells herself, marching down the stairs. Anna sits in front of the mirror and takes a deep breath.

Anna stares into the mirror and notices something strange. She concentrates intensely on the mirror as she starts to see angel wings appear on her back. She marvels at the giant angel wings that appear in the mirror. Anna glances at her back to see the angel wings for herself but are not there. Anna acts confused but calm. She slowly turns back around and notices that the wings disappeared. Anna thinks nothing of it and shakes her head, hoping that this is all a dream.

PS. Another short story I wrote.


Feb. 2018 Update

Hey Everyone! I know it has been awhile. I’ve been crazy busy with a new full-time job and some other things. It seems like there are not enough hours in a day anymore. But I’ll give you guys an update on what’s been going lately.

First, I was supposed to be the maid of honor for my friend’s wedding, but our friendship has parted ways recently, so that’s new. I’m not stressed about the wedding considering I am no longer apart of it, which is a shame, but I felt like I didn’t have a choice.

Second, about two weeks ago I went to Kalahari with my cousin’s and a friend that came along. We had a blast! Kalahari is a lot of fun! I honestly did not want to come back to reality yet. If you haven’t been there yet, you definitely have to go. It is an incredible place.

Hope you guys have a great week! 🙂
