A/N: Hey guys! I know there's quite a few people who enjoyed my other 2 stories, Brother of a Witch and Love at First Sight, and don't worry, they will be updated as soon as possible. I've just been distracted by all the snow we've had around here. Anyway, today I was watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and got up to the bit where Harry finds the Mirror of Erised. This gave me the idea for this story; what would happen if the Mirror was found in Shiz. It probably won't be as long as my other two. So please enjoy, rate and review!!!
The Mirror of Erised
Elphaba Thropp had been studying all night in the library, she didn't realise that she had fallen asleep! When she woke up, she looked at the clock to discover that it was one in the morning. Curfew had ended two hours ago, and she didn't know what would happen if she got caught wandering around at night!
As quickly but as quietly as possible, Elphaba made her way out of the library, and every time she turned a corner, she looked around to make sure nobody was patrolling the corridors. It seemed a little difficult to see in the dark, and she didn't have a light on her, so finding her way back to her dormitory was made harder.
After ten minutes of walking, she saw a small blue light coming from a door that was left ajar. Elphaba looked through the tiny gap, checking that nobody was inside, before going inside the room. Leaving the door the way she found it, she looked around. This looked like an unused classroom; desks and chairs were piled up unneatly, and it looked like they were covered in dust. But suddenly something else caught Elphaba's eye.
Elphaba crept up to the mirror. It was very tall and ancient-looking. There was something written at the top of the mirror: Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi. Elphaba looked at the letters closely, but did not understand what they meant. Was this mirror from a foreign country? She moved closer, standing in front of the mirror to examine it properly.
And that was when she saw her reflection.
...Or at least she thought it was her reflection? No, it couldn't be! Indeed, the girl in the mirror looked very much like her, but her skin was not green, but white as Nessa's own. Elphaba held up her hand towards her face. It was still green. Was this mirror playing tricks on her? She looked closely, to see a man walking towards her reflection. Elphaba could not believe her eyes; this was the Wonderful Wizard of Oz! The Wizard shook her hand, and the Elphaba in the mirror smiled and waved towards a small crowd gathered around them. A photographer approached, taking a picture of the Wizard and Elphaba, before handing Elphaba a newspaper, which she held up for the other Elphaba to see.
Wizard Succeeds in De-Greenifying Girl, the headline read. Elphaba couldn't believe it. It seemed this mirror was predicting her future! A smile formed on her green lips; it was the happiest she'd ever been in her life! She just had to show Galinda this; she couldn't imagine the look on her friend's face when she saw a mirror that predicted the future!
"I'll be right back," she whispered to her reflection, smiling. She left the door ajar, before running as fast as she could back to her dormitory, forgetting about the fact she was violating curfew.
Hope you enjoyed! Please R&R, Chapter 2 will be up ASAP!!!
