The reflection [Friday 19th November 2004 at 11:36 pm]

[Feeling |pensivepensive]

Behind him, the steel bars slammed down, preventing any return.

The door he came through backed on to emptiness where there should have been a wall, and around him the water gently rippled, reflecting the clear blue of the sky above. Across from him was another island, with another barred door backing on to nothingness.

Between the doors was a solitary island, with a single tree, the branches moving gently in breeze.

He walked across to the island, with the water lapping at his feet. His reflection followed him, looking up at him from under the endless lake.

On the island he now stood, looking around, seeing nothing but water stretching to infinity.

He walked over to the other door, with the water lapping at his feet. His reflection did not follow him.

On the island stood a figure, cloaked in darkness, a reflection of his self.

They looked at each other. One garbed in green, one garbed in darkness.

They watched in silence, each waiting for the other to make the first move. One true, one dark.

He unsheathed his sword, and prepared to conquer himself.

I remember SO many places where I've seen that before.. The neverending story, Kingdom Hearts, Spiderman 2..

A GREAT concept.. I wonder what I'd do if I met me.. (laugh) I'd probably ask me out. (grin)

Wow, that perfectly describes the scene from The Legend Of Zelda, Ocarina of Time. Really well written!

Yep, it was that scene that I had in mind. I sometimes get the urge to write, and write I do. There's more possible story snippets that are jockeying for position, but I doubt that I'd ever make anything big out of them.

Well, I'd definitely read them if you did. They don't have to become anything big anyway - they can stay as little snippets and still be well worth reading :).
