Title: My life

rating: pg
Warnings: None
House: Gryffindor

I have a rather boring life most of the time.
I spend most of my life alone in some empty room without seeing a soul.
Occasionally people, most students, would stumble upon the empty room where I stood and I got to show them their hearts desire.

I don`t remember the years that have gone by, but I still remember some of the students.
Most of them had sweet hopes and dreams for the future, but I remember one that scared me.

He was a handsome boy with a charming personality; but there was something odd about him. He was fake, I discovered, when he looked into me.
What he wanted was power…Power over everything and everyone, the power to rule the entire world…He smiled when I showed him that, and I felt sick for days after. I do not hope he ever got his wish.

I remember a sallow-faced greasy-haired boy, who looked into me and what I showed him was happiness…Him and his mother, together without his dad.

A good-looking boy used to visit me from time to time. He wanted to see a house where he would live with his friends. I don`t think he was happy at home.

I remember a boy who found me on night after a school game, and what he wanted was to be Captain of the Puddlemere United Quidditch team. I think he got that wish, and he was very enthusiastic so he deserved that.

Dumbledore shows up every once in a while to move me, and he always takes a peak. Sorry to say, that all I ever shows him is socks. But I guess he have everything, since that is his hearts desire.

I had another boy who scared me a bit. Tall with a pale face and blond hair. He cried when he looked into me. What I showed him was his dead father. That scared him, because I don’t think he wanted to know that what he wanted the most was to beat his own father.

There was this rather sad-looking black-haired boy, who came back night after night to look at his parents and family….I fell sorry for him and his parents because I could feel all this love flowing back and forth. I feel hope for him, because it seemed that what he wanted was just a normal life. I can’t help but wonder if he ever got that.

As I look back I see that most of my visitors were boys, funny right??
But then; maybe girls just know in their hearts what they want-- What do I know; I am just the mirror telling you what you want the most; funny enough, no one ever asked me what I want…
