D I S S A P P O I N T M E N T ! That’s the only thing that was overflowing when she returned home. She had always longed to go back home. To the warm and loving home that she remembered. But such ideals were only dreams that were shattered into pieces the moment she stepped home. It is a cold and lonely home. For once, the ice cold marble floor seems to transmit it’s chill right to her heart. The air conditioner seems to be cooler than usual although everything else around is burning. The cold water was like a wake up call. One that remind her that this is not home anymore. The people she know or once knew were like strangers to her. Their souls were cold. Just like the ones she stepped away from. ‘Have everything around me became cold and distant?’ she wondered.
The days passed by and although she walked under the sun and bathed in hot shower, it still felt cold. It was like apart of her was frozen. And there she was, among the crowd and cheer, only to be an ice princess in a frozen castle.
‘Where have everyone gone to ? Were they just my imagination ? ‘ she thought to herself.
‘Hello! Hello! Can you hear me? Are you listening? ‘ she called out.
There was no answer.
‘It’s freezing here. Get me out! Hello! Get me out!’ she called out again.
Over and over again there was no answer.
Slowly, everything faded. There was nothing and no one except her in the cold and lonely castle.
Sometimes, we wished for something so much we tend to betray ourselves that what we see is what we wished for. We try to see what we are seeing as how we want to see it.
She was the same.
She always thought that her home was one with warmth and love. She wished it was filled with cheer and laughter. But it was nothing like that.
The Ice Princess then woke and realized it was all just a dream. She was lying to herself. She was pretending and trying to convince herself. But somehow, even what was in her head shattered.
It takes one knock to shatter a fragile heart made out of the ice.
