Something I thought up. Just to point out, I've switched from 1st person to 3rd person in the second paragraph on purpose, for the effect :)

I looked down into the silvery surface of the water that closely resembled a mirror, and had it not been for the smooth ripples that glided slowly across the surface of the water with the gentle breeze every so often, it could have been mistaken for one.

A girl with ebony black hair fanned out around her bare shoulders stared back, her eyes - coloured a delicate shade of blue and framed by long, dark lashes - blinked, filled with something close to longing. She frowned, red lips parting, and it was now clear that it was the reflection that disappointed her in some way. The moon above her cast heavy shadows across her face, making the gleam in her eyes all the more apparent.

With one swift, fluid movement, my reflection shattered into a thousand fragments. I stood, the inky folds of my dress rustling so softly it could have been the wind, the silver bangles adorning my arms clinking together quietly - the noise growing louder however as I whipped round to face the scent blowing on the wind. I knew that scent well.

The boy a metre away from me smiled, his eyes flashing and sparkling, fangs only just visible from his full lips.

"You're late." I accused him, my eyes narrowing. His smile only grew.

"I think you'll find that I am perfectly on time, and it is yourself that is early."
