Reflection In Paris
She has just arrived to her hotel room in Paris. She opened the room's balcony door and took a look at the magnificent Eiffel Tower and the surrounding amazing view. The breeze was passing by her cheeks and flowing through her room. The smell of rain was still fresh after it had just stopped raining. It was a refreshing moment. She witnessed the beautiful sunset while smoking her last cigarette. There was so much on her mind. Passionate ideas, an intertwined mixture of happy and disappointing thoughts, and an empty feeling of loneliness. She is passionate about her designs. She is an American fashion designer. She came to Paris to show her designs and to be inspired by the whole fashion community in Paris. Tomorrow is her fashion show and she is pretty nervous. She had smoked a whole pack of cigarettes in one day to calm her nerves. She is not much of a smoker, but yet felt the urge to turn to cigarettes for temporary relief from her anxiety. She is happy she has accomplished her dream goal, but tomorrow feels like a judgement day for her. It's all the critical fashion views that she might not be able to handle. She had worked really hard all her life to reach this moment. She is loathing for acceptance not disapproval. That's not all what's on her mind. She is missing someone. Someone really special. The person who pushed her to get where she is now and who really believed in her. The only person she had ever loved. A day before she arrived to Paris she had a fight with him. She wanted him to be there at her show. To provide her with support and comfort. However, he couldn't leave his business. There were many issues and situations that needed to be addressed. So he was all tied up with his work. He really wanted to be there but couldn't. So After they argued, she left sad and disappointed to the conclusion that he won't make it. Now, she is missing him and thinking of him.
At the end of the night she went to bed hoping her show will be a success. The next day she woke up to a door knock. She received flowers from him that was delivered to her room with a card wishing her a great successful day. She was happy with that sweet gesture. It was like a motivation to kick her fears away and get ready for her special day. At the show, all the models were rocking her designs. Everyone was impressed with her collection. Her show was a great success. At the end of the show, when she came out waving to the crowd, she saw him standing and clapping for her. At that moment she felt complete.
