The Girl With The Silver Hair

This was a short story I wrote when I was around 11 or 12, I think…LOL I had to post this here to see how far I’ve come πŸ˜‚

Lira sighed heavily as she dragged her stubborn dog Mario into the house. She swept her silver-tinted hair back and gave a final tug on the leash, and Mario finally relented, slumping on the ground, panting heavily.

She leaped into the kitchen, her deep blue eyes twinkling with amusement at her twin brother, Lionel, who was trying in vain to piece a difficult jigsaw puzzle. Lira grinned.

Lira was an ordinary 15 year old girl who exceled at sports. She possessed a super agility. Her mother sometimes joked that she must have been a cheetah in her previous life. She had unusual silver hair, which was long and silky. When she first went to elementary school, her mother had to convince the principal that it was a natural hair colour and not dye. She turned heads with her soulful, deep blue eyes, swept-back cheekbones and aquiline nose. Her brother, Lionel, was the same. He had instead rugged features, with deep green eyes to match. Many girls had fallen for his looks.

Lira then headed upstairs to her room, pausing briefly to pop a CD into her CD player, and then flopped down onto her bed.

She felt restless. She knew that she had a great life, a great family and an amazing bunch of friends, but somehow, she felt that she did not belong.

She looked at her nails. They were growing too fast for her liking.Β  This was pretty weird.

She shook her head.

Suddenly, something exploded in her mind.

    1. πŸ˜‚ Mario the dog happens to be a Jack Russell who eats too much, is the proud owner of a sparkly pink rhinestone collar and runs around with a plunger in his mouth (it’s his preferred dog toy).

    1. Aw…thank you Sruthi! Oh… er, I did think once of writing a book, but I get so easily distracted πŸ˜‚ Omg, are you leaving WordPress? Your tone sounds awfully serious! But I’m equally glad to have met you as well at a time when were WordPress noobs. Oh…how has college been for you?

      1. Someday maybe you will, then!
        No, I’m not leaving WordPress lol, but I must admit I can’t post very frequently due to college.
        And college has been great (a little too tight-scheduled, yes) but it has opened me up to various fields of study and I’m glad about it πŸ™‚

      2. That’s so awesome! Maybe you could post about the stuff you’re studying? I would read them definitely. Lol…I’ll leave the book-writing out for now…maybe when I have something really interesting to write about, I could flesh it out as a book. πŸ˜„

      3. I’d thought of that, and I did post that article on metaphor and the comparison between movies adaptations and books πŸ™‚
        But more stuff is surely on the way, when I get a good hold on the subjects I study πŸ˜›

      4. Haha true! I’ve got two or three college articles ready actually. But they all came out of me due to the urge to finish the work instead of the pleasure of doing it (lol), so I’m slightly sceptical about posting them.

        But, I’d love for you to go through them if you have the time and guide me as you always do! I could send them to you πŸ˜€
