Spiraling Down {The Sunday Creative}

Spiral Staircase

She stepped out and looked down the long marble spiral stair case. Her thoughts swirling and spiraling around her as the stairs laid out before her. How could this day be here, how was she here. How had she gotten here. To this point, totally not in control of her own life.

She took a deep breath and felt the wires of the corset under her dress poking into her side. She had always dreamed of this day. Entering the great palace hall to meet her prince. She just imagined being happy and in love. Not this swirling mess of emotion and fear.

She put her hand on the railing looking down the spiral to her waiting family and took that first tentative step. Her foot slipped and she started to tumble. Her life, her fate spiraling out of her control just like the thoughts in her head.
