Mild make-up. Lovely shades of colours. She glowed under the sun’s light. She looked like an angel walking down the lane.
“Wow! You look stunningly beautiful, “ Janelle exclaimed. “What’s behind the new you?” she asked.

Beaming, Kerry answered,” I had a dream. I saw myself standing in front of a mirror. I saw a different reflection. A beauty that shone like stars in the night sky. It was unbelievable. I cried.”
“Wow! Incredible!” Janelle shouted.

“No, it isn’t. I also heard a voice. It said, ‘True beauty comes from within. It’s a glow from the inside.’”
“Yeah!”Janelle nodded.

    I like this one Thompson. I have to agree that true beauty comes from within. Well done.

    Lovely story Thompson and so true. True beauty, as Carrie has said, does come from within and it will always shine through. Very nicely done.

    This is nice, Thompson. I love that Janelle and Kelly both recognize that beauty comes from within. Once Kelly saw her own inner beauty, she was able to manifest it outwardly as well. Good writing!

    What a great dream, Thompson! It revealed a wonderful truth to Kerry and apparently she accepted it and took it to heart.

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
