A Mirror's Luck

London , United Kingdom

I was running for my life, breathless. I am running away from a creature in the middle of a forest. This forest is surrounded by weeds, dead plants and dirty green, it’s trees are all ragged and the forest uninhabited and all silent. All except for that creature. I risked a glance back at the creature from my peripheral vision it appeared to look like a dragon? I was too busy looking back I didn’t notice a stone and tripped over. There’s no way I’ll make it back up fast enough.I’m trapped. Immediately it’s jaw opened not burn me but instead to eat me. So I did the only thing I could do. Scream

I woke up. I felt a wave of relief overcome me, it was just a dream. Yet it felt so real. I pushed those thoughts in the back of my head and headed to the bathroom. I was washing my face and stopped immediately once I noticed the mirror changed I looked back and it was normal. Must have been my imagination, right?

My name is Olivia,18 years old in college. To be honest I have no idea what I want to be. This because I’ve always had this strange feeling that I don’t belong here, that I belong somewhere else. It’s like a piece of the puzzle is missing from my life and I don’t know how to find it.

I arrived at college and headed to the counsellor's office, but as I arrived it appeared she wasn’t there. I was perplexed as to why she’s never late. She must be running an errand I thought, but that thought diminished when a note on her desk came into view. It read “My sincerest apologies for the inconvenience, I am unable to attend this meeting however I shall see you at our next meeting on Thursday”

I returned the note to its original place on the desk and prepared to leave, but then I saw that shadow again. What was that? Where was it coming from? I walked over to the mirror by the bookcase. I looked at it and saw nothing but my reflectio2n. I put my hands to the mirror to feel the glass, however, instead of feeling glass, I felt water? Immediately after that, I noticed I could no longer see my hand, it had bypassed the mirror. I tried to pull it out. Useless. I tried again with more force. Again no result. I kept on pulling until my arm felt restless, eventually, I just gave up. Suddenly the mirror began pulling my body in again I tried pulling away but it was to no extent. The mirror gradually pulled me in until my whole body was in. During that after my initial reaction of pulling away, I became paralysed. From the shock of the force of the mirror or the mirror itself, I wasn't sure. I was unaware of that until the mirror swallowed my body whole.

Immediately I was engulfed in water, my arms and legs flailing trying to escape the water, but my attempts were futile. I remained like that still for just a second to take in my surroundings: The water was so clear I could almost see my reflection, the refracted light glistened on the underwater rocks, and the corals were so amazing, a sight beyond belief especially with those gems embedded on them glowing a multitude of colours. Unfortunately, I was unable to look at it anymore. I had run out of breath and I began to try and swim up. Emphasis on “try”. I couldn’t move. I began to rampage, my head began to light and my world was darkening and becoming unaware at least not until I felt a pair of arms wrap around me. Then I lost consciousness.

I opened my eyes, I was drenched, choking and cold. That’s when I realised it was night. I was shocked, scared, and confused. Where was I? What was I doing here? Suddenly the temperature dropped as I realised I was surrounded by creatures. And by humans who appeared not to be shocked at all.

Suddenly someone came up behind me, he was drenched to so he was probably the who had saved me from drowning. But I still had questions, and wanted answers.”Who are you and where am i” I asked in the most intimidating voice I could muster but the fear in my voice was evident by the shakiness.”Relax, I just want to help you, choose one” he stated with a smile. But what did he mean, chosen one?

“Chosen one?” I asked, confused.
“Yes, you have been living false life in London, with humans when in reality you are a wizard, the chosen one to keep this universe in balance” he explained. I let out a confused hum. What was he talking about? Who was the chosen one? Me?

Before I could question further he bought me in front of a wooden box it was clearly antique, but also had some modern and ancient Chinese designs like the flowers engrave on it through a passing vine with a few leaves on the side of the round box and at the top was some ancient language hardly an though only a line per corner and in the middle engraved yin and yang symbol accompanied by four lion at each corner in between the writing and the symbol kind of similar to the one on Buckingham palace gates.

He spoke again “This is the miracle box, it is a box that keeps, universes, realities, dimensions all in balance but also contains to entities: Good luck and Bad luck, what all of the worlds lack. It is not released but in order to release it we must open the box, however, we are unable to but you, you are very capable, we need you to do this because there is an imbalance in the universe so we need to release a chance to make it balanced again. And the only one who can do that is you. The chosen one.” He solemnly explained.

So I did what it was told. I strolled over to the box placed both hands on the lid. When a white light started to glow. Then I opened it than the white light was released and it imploded and caused an earthquake. When I looked inside the box I did not expect to see what I just did and saw.
