I burst into my room. Clothes were scattered across my small room. I really should’ve cleaned them up earlier yet I didn’t. I stumbled over to the mirror standing on the floor and stared at it. Gazing back at me was a kid wearing a yellow pinafore with a white t-shirt. Their feet encased in 2 little ballet flats. Their mousey hair was tied into 2 bunches falling over their shoulders.
