Trish: The great eye gazed back, reflecting upon...

The great eye gazed back, reflecting upon the memorable stopovers she had in her journey to find true love. She had thought that she'd never be able to find the path that would lead her to her destiny, but then it was right there; in front of her, just waiting for her to make the first few steps.

Reflecting back upon all the memories, she tilted her head back and stared up at the starry night sky as she rocked back and forth on the chair. All those times she had fantasized these things happening to her, she thought of it as a big dream, something she'd never be able to reach. But when she finally did, it was unbelievable.

At that time, everything had seemed like an illusion...a huge mirage that she needed to see so she could hope for better things. But as that illusion unfolded to become the truth, slowly happiness seeped back into her heart.

"In order for you to be old and wise, you need to have been young and stupid," a voice called from inside her heart.

Now, I'm wise, she thought, and I have a great eye to use to look back on the past and learn from my mistakes. Like Benjamin Franklin said, "I didn't fail the test, I just found a 100 ways to do it wrong."

Opening her eyes, she stared up at the stars above her.

I will be one of the stars in the sky soon...I will sparkle and shine forever.

The End
