The Emerald Dress
Ella zipped up her new dress, a rich emerald hue, satin jersey. She looked at her svelte reflection in the full-length mirror and smiled. She’d long dreamed of possessing such a dress; it made her feel pretty and worthy. The green emphasized the brownness of her almond-shaped eyes.
She thought about her mother and wondered where she could be. She wished she didn’t care about such things. She was happy to finally be free.
Ella knew the dress was a mask. When she’d take it off, she’d be back to her regular self – lacking confidence, feeling unworthy and unloved.
