Jaz's Facebook Short Story Competition - Entry by Belinda White
Cadence paced the small dressing room, feeling more nervous that she ever remembered.
She passed by the mirror again knowing that she shouldn't do it again but felt like today of all days she needed it.
As the daughter of the Earth king she was always surrounded by people today all she felt was alone.
Today was her wedding a day every girl dreams of but not Cadence she had dreaded this day since father died, unlike in the human world the Fae kind ran things a bit differently and now that the Earth lands time of ruling was over it was now time to pass over to the Fire lands and that also means that it was time for Cadence to marry the future fire king.
She looked over at the mirror one more time and thought this is going to last time, she just really needed her Dad. Cadence looked at the mirror and closed her eyes and thought of her father every nuance every detail.
She opened her eyes and saw him in the mirror so she sat down and reached forward and placed her hand against the mirror.
Then he reached out of the mirror and grabbed onto her wrist and once the connection was made she used her strength to pull him through.
Tears fell from his eyes as he took in what she was wearing. "I told you, you had to stop doing this", he said "But sweetheart you look beautiful"
