Reflection
by Barinellos
Status: Public :diamond:


The Duchess stood at the window, staring blindly at the scenery beyond. She could not recall where she was, or for how long she'd been standing there. Her mind was elsewhere, occupied with something she could hardly keep track of in the moment, other portions of her mind concerned with the matter.

Left to her own devices, she stared unseeing at a view that would steal the breath from beings who had seen less. So why was she staring?

It did not amaze her, she did not even see beyond the glass, but why had she been drawn here?

She stared at her reflection and scarcely recognized the creature that stared back. A young woman, very nearly a girl, with beautiful white hair and sharp eyes in a soft face.

Curiously, the reflection reached out and placed a hand on the glass, and the Duchess gazed down mechanically to find her own hand there. Her head swiveled back to her own face and tried to recall where this face had come from. She'd worn it for eons, but she suddenly wished she could recall if it were her own. She quirked her head curiously as a tear ran down her cheek, but for all she could comprehend, she didn't understand why.
