The Girl With The Shattered Reflection

"It's about time."I grumbled to myself as we got out of the gray,rented van,took out our suitcases our of the trunk & hauled them towards the huge white building.My Aunt Georgia's house.

Amanda,Mom & I had left our plane a few hours ago & had rented a car to get from the airport to Brooklyn.Talk about stiff.

"Can I ding the button,Mommy?"Amanda asked,guestering to the doorbell.

Mom nodded. "Just once,honey."

Amanda rang it 6 times until a woman who looked like she was in her mid thirties opened the door.

"Maria!It's been years since I last saw you!"My aunt said,embracing Mom.

"It has."Mom agreed."Georgia,These are my two daughters,Alexis & Amanda."

"Hello,There!Why,they look so much like you!"She smiled warmingly.

"Alyssa?"She called.

A girl with jet black hair holding a white box skipped gracefully down the stairs.

"Yeah,Mom?"

"These are your cousins,Alexis & Amanda."

Alyssa smiled at me then turned her eyes towards Amanda. "Amanda,I have a suprise for you.A little birdie told me you like teddy bears.So here."

She handed her the box.

Amanda didn't even hesitate.She just ripped the lid off & squealed."Pretty!Thank you!" In the box sat a brown teddy bear with the word 'Welcome' on it's stomach.

"You are so welcome."Alyssa beamed.

"Alyssa,go take Alexis & Amanda upstairs to see where they'll be staying."Aunt Georgia said.

"Okay,Mom."Alyssa darted up the stairs and Amanda & I chased after her.

Alyssa opened a white door with a big,purple H painted on it.

"Hailey?Come meet your new roomate."

Hailey,looked up from her dolls & smiled as she brushed her black with brown highlights hair back."Hi.I'm Hailey."

She turned back to her dolls.

Amanda stepped forward,Her eyes wide."Is that the new dolly from the commercials?"

"Yes!What's your name?"Hailey asked,Her eyes sparkling.

"My name is Amanda."

"Wanna play with me?"

"Sure!" Amanda sat next to her and picked up one of the dolls.

Alyssa laughed and shut the door.I laughed with her.

"No need to worry about the roomates getting along."I joked.

"Yeah ..Didn't anyone tell you we're sharing a room?"

"We are?Oh.Cool!"I smiled,Thought I was dissapointed from not having a room of my own for the first time."Can I see the room?"

"Sure."

I followed her down another hall (They all looked the same to me!) & took a step backwards when she opened double doors.

The room was a comforting grey color the way mine had been.The bed on the left was adorned with a red & black comforter & crisp white sheets.My feet sank in the plush white carpet.The other bed didn't have anything but a white sheet.Yawn.I'll fix that soon enough.Two white chairs surrounded a coffee table.In the front of the room were two glass doors that lead to a huge balcony.A Muse,Eminem & One Direction poster pretty much wallpapered the door.

"Awesome."I went to look closer.

"Pretty cool,huh?"

"Um,yeah!"I laughed.

"So,Alexis,When you're done unpacking tommorrow,want to go shopping?I'll pay for everything."

"You don't have to -"

"Think of it as a Welcome gift."

"Fine.Thanks,Alyssa."I said,smiling hesitantly.

"No problem.I gatta go meet up with someone,but we'll talk more in a few hours.

" For sure."
