27. The Mirror

The room Cara stepped into was a high roofed room that was all white. In the very middle of the room was a tall mirror that went from the floor to the roof. There was another identical Mirror in the corner of the room. The one in the middle had a sign above that read 'Your old life'. The other mirror had a sign that read 'Your future'. 

Cara stepped towards the mirror about her past. Her hands were shaking violently as she edged closer. There was a red dust sheet, draped over the mirror in front of her. Cara didn't know what to do. She edged closer and closer, until her hand was stroking the mirror gently. 

"Take a look, see how your old family is," the gatekeeper's voice boomed through the room, like thunder. Cara raised her hand above her head and gripped the sheet, but she froze before pulling it off.

"Hang on a minuet, what do you mean take a look?" Cara asked turning around in a circle, trying to spot the gatekeeper. There was a crackling noise as the voice thought for a moment before answering.

"Look through the mirror and you can see your family. Hurry up child I don't have all day," the gatekeeper said impatiently, coughing sightly. Cara grasped the sheet tighter in her hand but still she did not pull it off.

"Wait so you mean I cannot go back to them forever," Cara said confused as she fumbled with the edge of the sheet.

"No of cause you can't, your dead. Who told you that?" The gatekeeper questioned clearly sounding as puzzled as Cara was.

"My new parents... you know the ones who live here. They said that I could see my old family again,"Cara replied, realizing how stupid it sounded the moment she said it. The gatekeeper laughed.

"Well there you go then; you answered your own question," the gatekeeper retaliated laughing slightly.

"What do you mean?" Cara asked now more puzzled than she was when she started. The gatekeeper just laughed again.

"They never said you would be with your family; they only said that you would see them again," the gatekeeper said continuing to laugh. Cara's face fell as she realized her mistake. Sadly she raised her arm back to the sheet, pulled it down and looked through the mirror...
