What the heck am I doing with my life? Silverskies silently wondered as she sat in the cool shade of a white gazebo dripping with lush waterfalls of wisteria and garlands of ivy. With a defeated sigh, she lifted her wineglass to her lips and took a sip of her deep, blood-red wine. Warm beams of golden sunlight danced across her pale face and small, slender hands, illuminating the bright silver streaks in her lustrous black tresses, which cascaded down her back in glossy waves. At least I finally have some much-needed time alone, she thought, her gaze flickering to the peaceful garden outside around her, silent except for the soft whisper of the wind and the melodic songs of the bright birds that fluttered around the gardens.
Silvy smiled softly, sipping her wine again. It would be nice to see Xavier, she thought, before sharply snapping out of her train of thoughts. "No," she firmly whispered, a steely look in her eyes. I can't let him see the darkness bubbling up inside me... or know about the nightmares. Her mind wandered back to the terrifying nightmares that caused her wake up screaming, drenched in cold sweat and tears pouring down her cheeks. They took a heavy toll on her, both physically, mentally, and emotionally But she hid it well, magically sound-proofing the walls of her chambers so her screams wouldn't be heard by the other residents of the villa and applying enchanted makeup to hide the sleepless bags under her eyes. At meals, she forced a smile and choked down food, eat bite tasting like sawdust and sticking in her throat.
I don't know how much I can keep this ruse us, Silverskies thought, draining her wine and massaging her temples, fighting back tears. She was so distraught that she didn't notice Xavier's aura or the fact that it was coming closer and closer towards her...
((I decided that it should start off a bit angsty))
