Eternal Curse: Battleground chapter 1(wip)

For as long as I could remember, Mom had always worn her hair up in a bun. I’d seen digital imprints of her when she was younger, wearing her hair down, and thought that she looked much prettier that way. Her hair was a medium length for her face and it was very dark and wavy. I always thought that when she wore her hair down, it made her look like the kind of person who really knew how to have fun.

I stood in front of my reflecting shield looking at myself wishing that I could see her facial features looking back at me. No matter how hard I wished, her features just weren’t there.  I wasn’t tall and voluptuous like she was, and my skin wasn’t dark like hers either. My hair was long, thin, and curly and my skin was fair.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
