Reflection

It's funny the way we see people. How we see differences only when we want to. I guess no one's ever wanted to see the difference between me and my mother. Even I can't see it sometimes and on those times I'm worried I'll become her.

A traitor, a violent traitor. I know that's what she was but I still wonder about her; Why she did what she did and If she ever regretted it. I know deep down I'll never be her but what scares me is when I want to be like her. When I want to be strong like she was.

Diana, my aunt, raised me. She rescued me from being banished along with my siblings and parents but I still hate her sometimes. I know it's only because I'm jealous of others. They've grown up with their real parents. They weren't lied to.

I remember the day I found out. Carol, a princessy brat, told me. She told me why the others stared at me and why the grown ups seemed to hate me but not why my aunt had lied to me. I doubt she knew, after all, I still don't. I mean I know that my aunt's always tried to protect me and this was probably just another way of doing that in her eyes but It's just an untested theory. I never actually asked her.

Looking back now I wonder why I ever thought my aunt was my mother. I mean she looks nothing like me. She's beautiful with blonde hair, big emerald green eyes, long eyelashes, full pink lips, a button nose, and just a few freckles. She's got a kind of average beauty. Not like that of a model but still beautiful. She gives off warmth too. I have sharp thin features that give off a sense of cold and menace.

I look like my mom. I look exactly like her just with brownish green eyes instead of bright blue. I guess I inherited those from my father. I've never really been curious about my parents but I've seen my mom's face on the news a lot. The government likes to brag about how they captured and banished her.

The TV comes on automatically for a scheduled broadcast. One of the more common news anchors comes on. She's pretty. I notice that almost all people in power are.

"Today Diana Huntress is awarded for her bravery in the war by King Zack. Her legal daughter Zoey will be attending. This is bound to spark some controversy as Zoey's biological mother Anna Outsider, formally known as Anna Huntress before her banishment, is the one who injured her sister Diana in the first place. We'll see how that plays out. Now as always Palace News will be covering the entire ceremony live! So stay tuned." As the news anchor finished out her report the TV turned off automatically and I turned away.

"The train will be leaving soon we should go." "Ah!" I exclaimed turning around to find her aunt behind her. "Oh sorry I didn't mean to startle you. I thought because of the noise my wheel chair makes you'd hear me." Diana said. "I'm fine now so we should probably get going." I said.

Diana had a look of concern on her face. "Zoey…is something bothering you?" she asked.

I knew it was no use lying to her so I answered honestly "Yeah my mom..it's just been so long and now they're bringing it up again." I trailed off and looked around the room uncomfortably.

"She was my sister and I still love her very much even with what she did but I can't let those news casts get to me and you can't either." Diana said. But they do every time. No matter how hard I try to not let them they do.

dmcallistersinger: It was an interesting story. However, it reads more like an outline than a complete book. There needs to be more character development, depth and explanation. The idea is there, but it needs refinement and spelling and punctuation editing.
