I eye the mirror in front of me in disbelief. How could this thing, this mere mirror be able to show me what fifteen years of lies could not? I scoff at the idea but I have to concede to even myself I was curious. I want what I had been and possibly what I wanted to be again. But could I? Could I really toss away what I believed was me? Even if it's a lie?
I ignore the others there to take in the mirror with an air of distrust. Its ruby encrusted frame twinkles decievingly at all of us. The glass looks unspectacular and with a deep sigh I turn to ask Yuko, "Do I have to go first?" The tredipation only amuses him more as he grins boldly.
"Of course. You are the prodigy." The mocking tone infuriates me and with a dark scowl I storm up to the mirror, not bothering to toss a retort but even if I tried it would've been knocked away by my reflection within the mirror.
The mirror really did show the truth. My once vibrant blue eyes had become a deep violet hue. Instead of untamely blond hair that had been to my shoulders the reflection had beautiful long ebony hair and it was as straight as a board, much to my relief. The pale skin hadn't changed, if anything it got paler. The other me smiles brightfully while waving a hand. Stepping closer I nearly faint at the sight of dark red wings that steal my breath.
Before I could focus much more the reflection shifts into an almost exact copy only this time the eyes were a flashing amber that strikes fear and confusion in me. Why did I have two reflections?! Ironic, honestly, I could never be normal it seems and with a chuckle I smile thinly back at it while it howls to the moon while the other stands to the side murmuring, "vates Ostende, me."
My vision blurs as I step back, blearily. I crumble to the floor as my weak legs collapse underneath my body. Dimly I hear Vladr trying to pry me out of the daze but I could only stare into the wall, not there as I watch with faint horror at the images playing out before me.
"Do you want to find out the secret?" A little boy whispers, brown eyes spitting fire at me as I blink, confused.
"What secret?" I murmur, trying to sit while the boy merely pulls out a knife with a sadistic smile.
"You are Vates, yet you are Yami. The wheels have start to turn and soon the enemies will find you and forever shall you lose, girl." He smirks with glowing silver eyes before pouncing.
