‘Grandmother, what is it?’

‘It’s a magic mirror, love. It shows what your heart really wants.’

‘Really?’

‘Well, that’s what my grandmother’s grandmother told her.’

‘Have you taken a peek?’

‘But of course, love. Quite the few times.’

‘Did it truly show your heart’s desire?’

‘That’s my little secret, love. Do you want to take a peek?’

‘It already shows what I want, Grandmother.’

‘The gardener’s shed? But of course! I’m truly sorry, my dear. Alas, your destiny is to become the Queen.’

‘If only this mirror could also give me what I desire!’

  1. Many times standing in front of a mirror we appear confused. Mirror are a reflection of what we are feeling inside, it just that we should keep our eyes and ears open to see and listen to that voice that get ricocheted from the mirror image…nicely written.

  2. Who wouldn’t want to be queen? Well, clearly, this young girl who would be much happier playing with fistfuls of dirt and green things. What we desire is not always as desirable as we think it is. Nice vignette.

  3. “If only this mirror could also give me what I desire!’.. maybe some other magical object would give her what she desires or better what she deserves.

  4. That’s quite a concept. A mirror that shows you what you want. Might not be a good idea to keep it where other people can share it with you. 🙂 Great take.

  5. You make a fascinating observation there about how the things we want so often differ from what we can have. I suppose it’s partly about the way social pressure can deny us what we want. Nice write.
