Daily prompt: Mirror, Mirror

She looked into the hallway mirror. It was perfect the way she looked. Her face was slightly flushed and a smile hovered on her lips. She had used red lipstick, her favorite color. Her hair looked just the way she wanted. She looked young and vibrant and felt the same way. Her black dress hugged her figure and showed the right curves.

Satisfied, she looked into the mirror one last time. She picked her purse and car keys, set the alarm and opened the door to the garage.

Reaching her friend’s house she gave a cursory glance to the other guests. She made heads turn as she crossed the room to her friend’s side. Secretly pleased at the reaction she thought, “Whoa, I must be looking stunning!”

Tania remarked to Fauzia, “I wonder why old Mrs. T dresses like she still is twenty years old?”
