9. Glam Me Baby, One More Time

They first put this gooey black stuff that was on a brush with small bristles and put it on my eye lashes. I didn’t know what that was so I asked and she said, “Oh this? This is just mascara that I will put on your eye lashes to make them longer! You will be beautiful!” I understood what she was saying but still kind of freaked out by her crooked wig that she would fix more than once. After, she put some powder on my eye lids. I didn’t ask this time because I really didn’t want to hear them talk again. She fixed her wig and tried to make it straight but honestly he just made it worse by making it crooked the other way. When she was finished after like 10 minutes, I looked in the mirror and I saw a beautiful girl. I now know that she wasn’t playing dress up. Nichole came over and said to me, “Do you like it?” I said, “It’s so beautiful.” I didn’t even believe it was me. I looked different and unrecognizable. I looked like sleeping beauty as I just woke up in front of the horizon. As the chandelier lights glistened on my cheek bones, I realized that I was beautiful inside and out. It was the happiest moment of my life. I’ve never used makeup before. The scarlet eye shadow sparkled and the lip gloss lightly put on my lips shined. Next was time to pick the dress. I looked through a closet of different dresses. There was one that stood out to me. It was strapless with ruffles on the bottom. It was white and had lilies at the sides which were black. I couldn’t wait to try it on. I griped it and went into a dressing room. I locked the door and changed into the dress. I looked into the mirror and thought it was perfect. It couldn’t be any better. I opened the door as I noticed Nichole and Jay waiting outside to look at it. Nichole spoke first, “It’s beautiful!” she quickly scrounged around me poking at the dress. Jay said to me, “Sorry she just gets a little excited when she sees a beautiful dress on a beautiful girl. You really do look amazing and I’m proud of you.” I just smiled at him and twirled so Nichole could get a better view. They curled my hair earlier and when I spun, my hair flowed along with me tickling my neck. The next day is the ceremonies. The person riding on the carriage with me is Rayd. Carol guides me back to my room. I take off my dress and my makeup and put on my pajamas and lie down on my bed. The lights have been turned off and I pull the covers up to my face. It’s very cold in this room. I felt like I just froze. I find it very hard to fall asleep when I have so many thoughts and questions jumbled up in my mind right now. I close my eyes and try to think about my mother. My mom’s name was Linda. She used to give me chocolate-covered strawberries before I went outside. She died when I was 13. I still remember how her hair used to stay perfect on a windy day and she would laugh because she said mine looked like a rats nest. And when she said sorry when I cried even though she had nothing to do with what I was crying about. Or when she bought me these huge green glasses and when I was mad because of school she would put them on and pretend to be my teacher. I filled my head with happy thoughts instead of scared and hurt ones. I slowly start to get lost in my thoughts and disappear.
