As long as I existed, I knew no place other than here. Stuck in this realm for as long as need be, and I had but a loathing of here and now. The greatest pain that infuriated me was my look-alike. Shame be on me for calling her a pain, but to look like the Royal likeness was more a bane than a boon.
I had to mirror her actions day in and day out – for that was the law of my realm. How marvellous indeed. Her very appearance imitated and irritated me, but not for long. With the Dagger finally, in my possession, I need no longer be the nitwit I used to be.
And at the appropriate opportune moment, I lunged forward through her looking-glass.
And I had travelled. Travelled away from the Realm of Reflections and into the Land of the Living.
I had been waiting to strut across the barrier my whole life.
“Free, I am,” I stated, my voice ringing with pride. Words I had been waiting to hear my entire life.
“and you may no longer be,” I finished as I finished her, pushing her through the portal.
