* Angel in a Wedding Dress *
She looks like an angel. It is difficult for Jayla to believe that the woman she sees in the mirror, with a halo of golden hair and a silken wedding gown, is her. The difference being, of course, that the Mirror-Bride, locked away within her wooden frame, is not burdened by the uncertainty that clouds Jayla’s mind.
Moments from now, she will take her fiancé’s hand and commit herself to him, forever and always, while her real-life Romeo, the inappropriate soul-mate, stood stoically aside.
“Are you ready, Jaybird?”
Jayla gave her father her hand and forced a smile. Perhaps Juliet could have lived happily ever after with Paris, if she had listened to her head and not her heart.
There was only one way to find out.

So there you have it. Apologies to those who were hoping for a happy ending, perhaps with a dramatic “I object!” during the ceremony, but this is where it ends. There could be a happy ending for Jayla and Archer – after all, who knows what our characters do after we stop telling their story?
But for now, you shall have to fill in your own holes.
