Reflections - #1 Story for AAWC

Hi everyone!:)
If I haven't said anything about it, I am now, but I am participating in Misty's writing camp Aspiring Authors Writing Challenge!:D I am Team Pegasus and I used the team mascot in my story.:)
 
My fingers brushed against the mirror, leaving a smudge on the cold glass. I stared at the girl I was, unhappy with who I saw. My eyes wandered to my desk and the girl in the photograph, dark brown hair and glittering blue eyes filled with love, hope...happiness.
When I was young. When I hadn't been broken.
The girl in the picture was so different. She wore a shirt with Pegasus decorated on it, her smile was wide, showing shiny braces. The sun streaming from the back framed the picture with added joy, a thing I hadn't felt for years.
I tore my eyes away from the picture of who I used to be, pain aching in my heart as memories flooded over me. Looking back at my reflection, I sighed. Now my hair was almost black, my braces gone, my bright blue eyes faded to a dull gray. My cheeks were pale and unmarked from lack of sun and lack of smiling.
I hated it. I hated my reflection.
It only mirrored my deep pain, deep longing to undo the past. But the sorrow had taken its toll, destroying any happiness and innocence. I grimaced at the reflection while I reflected on my cold, broken heart.
Those who are heartless once cared too much.

I hope you enjoyed the short story, usually I like to make my stories to have a plot, but every once in a while I'll make a story like this one that doesn't have a "conflict".;)
 
Okay, I know that everyone is super excited because TFA just came out yesterday on DVD, and some might also be thrilled for the The Phantom Menace tsum tsums that were also released yesterday, but something Star Wars is coming tomorrow. And it's HUGE.
Has anyone heard of Rogue One yet?
It is going to be the first stand alone Star Wars film to come out. It's coming out this year around Christmas time, like TFA did last year.
...
The first trailer is COMING OUT TOMORROW. Everyone, this is insane. I am so excited, I can't contain all of this new Star Wars excitment. GAH!!!!
This is a screenshot I took today from the super short sneak peek of the trailer-
I don't know why it's squeezed together, but it's a new kind of stormtrooper and there's something on fire in the background! I AM SO EXCITED!!!XD
I might be making a post about the trailer tomorrow, talking about highlights and possibilities and just exciting things, so look out for that tomorrow!XD

  1. I think Rogue One looks cool, but I'm not as excited for it was I was for the Force Awakens. I can't wait to watch the trailer though. :)

    1. Yeah! I don't know if I am as excited for it as I was for TFA, since I wasn't totally into Star Wars before TFA, so I can't really weigh my excitement properly.;) I probably wouldn't be as excited for it as I was for TFA.:D Me neither!!

  2. Emma, this is beautiful. I love it SO much! Your descriptions are wonderful, and the story holds so much depth and sadness. Amazing.

    *Ahem* I mean - it's pretty good - for someone on Team Swan.
    (LOL, Haha! :P :D XD)

    I used to LOVE Star Wars, then I kinda drifted out of it. Now I'm beginning to get back into it (with the help of TFA and BB8, of course). I'm excited for Rogue One. It sounds really exciting!
