Life had done a full circle, a whole circumference around her. Tommorrow night, she was supposed to be attending a  reunion of faces she had long forgotten, but tonight she was questioning her whole exsistance. Life had gotten better, she had become successful beyond the past. Returning to the pit of hell was asking for trouble. Some say they are the best days but good memories were not famaliar back then.
.
Shuffling through the old faded pictures she scourered the faces for just one. A shy youngster with heavy braids and a extra large jumper, the tag covered in her name. Finally, her finger grazed the edge of an old class picture, their faces innocently naive she remembered each one from distant memories.
.
Tracing her index finger along the bottom row, she slide upward to the middle her hand coming to an abrupt stop at the chubby version of herself. There she was before the storm, there she was in her calm; A babe among wolves.
.
Glancing across the room at her brand new dress she let a tear fall, who was she trying to impress. After all, those who had rejected and defamed her did not deserve her grace.
.
Looking at the picture once more something ignited in her soul, although years had past the memories had yet to grow old. Picking up the picture she tore three sides, glancing at her previous self with a smile she welcomed the new found spirt transforming her tame into wild. There was a reason for everything, the reunion was the time; Everybody would pay for their space in her mind….
.
“This one is for you.”

This is a piece of fiction, a work of art. All you have to do is leave a ❤
