This wasn't how I had expected my engagement to end, as I met the gaze of a pair of ruby red eyes in the mirror. My own.

I'll take you back to where this all began.

It was nineteen thirty-three, and I was beautiful. My life was perfect. The Great Depression was nothing but a shadow, over on the side, covering others in it's gloom, but not I.

My father had a stable job in the bank, and we were very middle class. I was a daughter of three children, my other two siblings my younger brothers.

My friends envied my beauty, men watched me, and my parents showered me with dresses and praise. They were so proud of my beauty. They took advantage of it socially.

One of my closest friends, Vera, married at seventeen, to a carpenter. My parents would've never let me marry a carpenter, but I was happy for my friend. I also slightly envied her of the curly dark-haired boy with dimples. I would never have thought I would envy anyone let alone Vera, but her being my best friend, I tried to be happy for her.

In Rochester, at the top of the social ladder, sat the Kings. Royce King owned the bank my father worked at, and his son, was Royce King the second. The foul atrocious man.... but I'm getting ahead of myself.

Little did I know, that one day when my mother sent me to the bank, to bring my father his lunch my mother had forgotten to send, my life would change, careening down the path to my death.

Looking back at the beginning of this
And how life was
Just you and me and love and all of our friends
Living life like an ocean
Now the currents slowly pulling me down
It’s getting harder to breath
It won’t be too long and I’ll be going under
Can you save me from this
It’s not my time,
I’m not going
There’s a fear in me
It’s not showing
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
Oh, I won’t go
I look ahead to all the plans that we made
And the dreams that we had
I’m in a world that tries to take them away
Oh, but I’m taking them back
All this time I’ve just been to blind to understand
What should matter to me
My friend, this life we live
Is not what we have, it’s what we believe
It’s not my time
I’m not going
There’s a fear in me
It’s not showing
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
Oh, It’s not my time
I’m not going
There’s a fear in me
Now I know that
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
Oh, I won’t go

I won’t go
It might be more than you believe
It might be something you can’t see
It’s not my time
I’m not going
There’s a fear in me
It’s not showing
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
It’s not my time
I’m not going
There’s a will in me
Now it’s gonna show
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
I won’t go
There might be more than you believe
There might be more than you can see
It’s not my time
I’m not going
There’s a fear in me
It’s not showing
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
It’s not my time
I’m not going
There’s a will in me
Now I know it
This could be the end of me
And everything I know
I won’t go

I won’t go!
No I won’t go down

I blinked, looking away from the ruby orbs to take in my appearance. I didn't want this new life, I thought as I assessed myself, but at least I still had my beauty. One aspect of my old life except even my beauty, was amplified. I was the most beautiful person I'd ever seen. But I wanted my old life.

Here is the story of my unhappy ending that only brought in full circle, an unhappy beginning.
