"Min it's okay! It's just me! Or... you. Us!"
I couldn't deny she was me after that little fit or whatever. But how in the hell was this possible? "Why are you... how? I mean, you don't look like me."
"I'm good you Min."
"Good me? Wait... I'm so lost.I had a nightmare with bad me telling me tostay good now I'm having a reality of good me, let me guess, telling me to come back to the good side." I noticed that everytime I spoke her mouth moved with mine like she really was my reflection in the mirror yet she had a mind of her own still.
"You know, for being me, you really are thick honey."
"Hey! You can't insult me! You are me! What!?"
She laughed andpushed her hair from her face. "I'm just here to warn you Min. By the way, we look hot in that dress."
I looked down at my dress and twirled the skirt. "I know right? I was a little unsure of it at first but if you'd seen Rykers face... Wow. It was like insta-sex face."
We laughed together then stared at each other. "This is really sad..." She sighed.
"Yeah... What are you here to warn me about that I don't already know?"
"I'm here to tell you that things are really going to get bad before they get better. For us. For Ryker, for Misty, for Jayk, for the twins. We're all about togo through some things we can't go back from. I'm here to warn you."
"Because you're the one who can stop it."
I gulped and looked around the bathroom to make sure I wasn't being watched. She copied my movements in the mirror. "Then can you tell mewhat's going to happen exactly so I know how to stop it."
She lightly shook her head and pulled her white hairaway from her face. "I can't reveal anything to you. You have to learn it for yourself. I did."
"Then why in the hell are you here!? If you aren't going to help me, what's the point?"
"I'm trying to help you Min."
"No you're not! You're being useless!"
"Don't yell at me! I'myou!"
I crossed my arms and she copied the action. "Copy cat."
"I'm your reflection in a mirror. I do whatever you do."
I rolled my eyes and turned away. How could this be? I mean, my refelction wasn't suppose to have amind all its own. It was suppose to share mine. Actually, it wasn't suppose to think at all. That was my job. And it certianly wasn't suppose to look different than me. I know only her hair was different but still.
I turned back to the mirror and she still stood there, watching me. "So, let me see if I got this right. You came to warn me of dangers we're about to face but you can't tell me anything about said dangers so this was basically useless, correct?"
"Not useless." She shook her head. "Not useless in the least.Now you know something's coming so you can be prepared. You can save us Min."
"Save us? What's going to happen to us?"
She closed her lips tight and refused to answer. She looked away and furrowed here brows as if listening to someone in the mirrorI couldn't see or hear then looked back at me quickly. "You really need to work on your dancing. I never realized I have two left feet when in heels."
"Okay, we're in a time of desperation, is this really appropriate to make fun of our dancing?" We looked at each other then started laughing. "Yeah, yeah. It's alwaysappropriate to make fun of our dancing."
"You got it." she grinned at me then her face became serious like mine.
"I'm still confused about something."
"What about Ryker?"
"What about him?"
"Do you know anything about him?"
She shifted her feet uncomfortable then gave me a careful nod.
"Can you tell me?"
She shook her head. "It is for him to reveal to you. You'll learn in time, you just have to be patient."
"Oh come on. You know better than anyone that I'm the least patient person I know."
"This is true..." She bit her lip, thinking about it fora minute, thinking about how to word her nextstatement. "Here's what I will tell you. Don'tpush him to tell you. You'll only make things worse. See this scar?"she leaned forward and pointed to a scar on her cheek. "Ryker did that.I pushed himtoofar and got what I deserved. Let him come to you, got it?"
I looked atthe scar then let my own hand fly up to my cheek.I didn't have a scarand I didn't want one. "Yes." then somethingdawned on me. "CrapRyker. I've beenin here so long he probably thinksI'm puking my guts up or somthing."
I picked upthe skirt of my dress and ran out of the bathroom. Ryker was standing over by the piano in the corner of the room talking to the twins and two other guysI didn't recognize. I walked overto him, trying not to tripall over myself, andtook his hand in mine.
"Min, there you are." he smiledand kissed my head. "Min I'dlike you to meet Zachery and Laurren.Their fellow Dark Siders that I've known a very long time. Gentlemen, this is Min."
Laurren smiled and held his hand out to me. "Pleasureto finally meet you Min. Ryker has told us a lot aboutyou."
I took his hand and shook it then took Zachery's outstretchedhand. "In fact, he won't shut up about you."
The twins laughed. "Try being around them everyday. Talk aboutfree porn all day, everyday." Mattgrinned.
I smacked hischest. Ryker just rolled his eyes; he was obviously more used to the twins endless joking than I was. Suddenly something clicked in my brain. "Hey, this school is called Laurren Marie high school. Are you part of that family or is that just mere coincidence?"
Laurren put his hands in his pantspockets and gave me a smile. "Smart girl. It was named after my wife, Marie and I."
"Oh... How old are you?"
"Older than you want to know dear."
I looked him up and down. He didn't look any older than his late twenties withhis slight beard, messy light brownhair and gorgeous blue eyes only a couple shades lighter than Rykers. "What about you Zachery?"
"Same." He looked only about a year younger than Laurren with dirty blonde hair and dark green eyes. His face was freshly shaven and he was smiling sweetly at me.
"Hm... Hey Ryker there's something I want you to see."
"What is it?"
I tugged on his hand. "Over here."
"I'll be right back." Ryker said to Laurren and Zachery then to the twins he said low, "Don't scare them off."
The twins snickered at the impossible request but Ryker just sighed and let me pull himaway. I pulled him to the bathroom and started to go in but noticed Ryker had stopped. "Babe, if you want to do that, we can just go back to the dorm."
I wrinkled my nose. "No Ryker, it's not that. Just come on." I saw him do a quick check to make sure no one would see him going into the girls bathroom then he followed me.
"All right, that is it."
"It's this mirror. I want to know if..." I looked at where the mirror used to be but it was gone now. I looked around the bathroombut it wasn't in there. "Wait, it was here a second ago. It was a full length mirror and my reflection was talking to me. It was warning me of... stuff." Better bit to tell him what just yet because by the look on his face, he already thought I'd lost it.
"Honey... There's no mirror and reflections don't talk."
"But she was! I swear!"
"Baby I think you need to eat something. You're probably just hungry which is making you see things." He reached out and took my hand. "Come on."
I blinked and stared at where the mirror used to be then let Ryker pull me out of the bathroom.
A/N: I have added Laurren, Marie and Zachery to the character pics :D
