a story i've thought about writing for a long time , i'll put it up on here to see your opinions though
- prologue -
Aideen summers had once been a normal child.... a strange normal child that is.
you see, she was an adorable little girl at the age of 5 and was currently running around her garden , after a 'faeirie ', as she had told her mother.
Aideen had been able to see things others couldn't , like faeiries and elves , even small hobgoblins ,she often talked and played with them... she was a normal child for beleiving in such things , however her mother-being a single parent- began to worry as she grew older.
years passed by, one , two and then three.
she confronted her daughter who , at the time was 8 " Aideen... you know they arn't real right?" she had asked , only to receive a stare from the child " they told me you'd say that mom.... they said you'd try to make me forget.... but i won't... not my friends" she said quietly , staring off into the distance.
she had gotten up and walked to her room that night , feeling confused ' why does she worry so much?' she asked herself, sitting on her bed.
she stared at the large mirror in her room and walked over to it, there stood her reflection... only it wasn't her... she was dressed like a faerie, in a pure white dress, trimmed with gold. she was smiling, she noticed.
she reached a hand towards the mirror , gasping in pain. blood!
she was bleeding! she brought her hand to her face , and then stared at the mirror wide eyed , the mirror had cracked all the way from the top left courner down to the bottom right one.
and she could see a new reflection.... a scary one...drenched in blood , holding a butchers knife. it opened it's mouth speaking words that couldn't be heard. but she could read the lips ' i warned you not to trust her ' it had said.
she screamed for a moment before collapsing.
the mirror had burst , broken glass shards shooting from it's frame towards her.
Aideen shot out of bed, her black hair clinging to her sweating forehead. 't-that dream again!' she thought , terrifiyed.
she was now 15 years old ,and after the age of 8 she had been differant , not the same girl she once was , kind and caring.
she now wore dark clothes , her once faveourite colour of pink , replaced by the charcoal black and blood red. she had died her pure blonde silky hair black , she was thinking about diying it red soon.... she hid behind a curtain of black fringe , hiding her eyes , her cold grey eyes that had once been filled with so much light.
she had stopped beleiving gradually in the existance of faeries and the like , and they had moved house too, Aideen wouldn't enter her room after that day, they had sold the house to an elderly couple.
Aideen had left behind all of her belongings , she didn't want those things to follow her... especially that creature from the mirror...
she shuddered , thinking about what had happened in the past, getting out of bed.
she went downstairs after getting dressed in her school uniform , walking into the living room and sitting in a chair "morning mom...." she said , her face emotionless as ever.
" morning dear" her mother sighed, staring at the t.v , the news was on.
" I don't see why you watch that stuff... it's all fake and depressing" Aideen shrugged , staring at the screen too now , she had an hour before she had to start walking to school, she may aswell waste it with her depressing mother.
