Golden sparks gently blew away from me in the warm breeze coming through the open
window, dancing and weaving with one another. My heart was pounding profusely,
threatening to leap out of my chest with every single beat. My Mum smiled her dazzling
smile as she took my hand, pulling me out of my meditating position, and led me to my
\u201cOh! Gosh!\u201d I exhaled, trying to believe the person I was gazing at in the mirror
was me, and not an optical illusion. I was already struggling to get my head around it. My
skin had transformed from the mass of freckles it usually was, to a silky, delicate
porcelain colour, with a slight pink blush to it. I reached my face to touch it, and it was
every ounce as soft to the touch as it looked. I stood there for a few seconds, attempting

believed you looked so plain before, and now you were increasingly stunning with every
breath you took. Especially if all the family secrets that had been hidden were you were
