Her Name Is Astral

While most children congregate together to play after school

While most children congregate together to play after school, a peculiar young girl spends hours in the dense woods alone seeing as this is her only place of solitude in a hectic life of tumultuous family relations and malicious bullies.

You see, she is a unique soul both in appearance and personality.

With rich, ebony skin and a sharp, sensitive mind, she stands out in the crowds of plaster white children at school;

With rich, ebony skin and a sharp, sensitive mind, she stands out in the crowds of plaster white children at school; her beauty, intelligence and strength do not radiate out as they should because she does not see it yet.

With rich, ebony skin and a sharp, sensitive mind, she stands out in the crowds of plaster white children at school; her beauty, intelligence and strength do not radiate out as they should because she does not see it yet. It is all there, though, in plain sight.

Her parents are of no help either. Having been adopted by a prestigious white family at birth, she never received the positivity to grow into her confidence.

Her parents are of no help either. Having been adopted by a prestigious white family at birth, she never received the positivity to grow into her confidence. All they give her are material possessions. No real love.

They neglect.

They neglect. They mistreat.

They neglect. They mistreat. They belittle.

They compare her to the other white children even though it is clear she is more advanced than all.

They compare her to the other white children even though it is clear she is more advanced than all. Even still, no one ever notices her.

That is why she relishes in her forested lone time, for that is where she feels safe.

This is where she acts out conversations articulating her feelings and opinions to her abusive parents and bullies

This is where she acts out conversations articulating her feelings and opinions to her abusive parents and bullies, but she is always too shy to speak up for herself.

She thinks she needs someone to save her from her tormented life.

After a particularly unfavorable day at school, she decides to go straight home her usual way through the forest although, this time, with sunken, tear-soaked eyes and a heavy head bowed low towards the ground in defeat.

Because of her downturned demeanor, she is not aware of the bright figure sauntering toward her in the dark.

Because of her downturned demeanor, she is not aware of the bright figure sauntering toward her in the dark. With a hushed growl, the luminous figure suddenly gets her attention.

As this otherworldly, bioluminescent figure gets closer, she recognizes it to be a wolf.

In a matter of seconds, the wolf positions itself face to face with the girl just long enough to touch her forehead with the tip of its snout and then vanishes.

With confusion, the girl continues home seemingly unchanged.

With confusion, the girl continues home seemingly unchanged. During the short stroll home, she begins to feel feverish and decides to tie up her hair.

In that simple moment of pulling her hair back, she sees a future vision of herself.

In that simple moment of pulling her hair back, she sees a future vision of herself. What is seen is unimaginable to her.

She sees herself in front of a mass of people listening intently to her.

She sees herself in front of a mass of people listening intently to her. In watching herself and the immense crowd of onlookers,

She sees herself in front of a mass of people listening intently to her. In watching herself and the immense crowd of onlookers, she realizes she is being sworn in as the president of the United States.

She sees herself in front of a mass of people listening intently to her. In watching herself and the immense crowd of onlookers, she realizes she is being sworn in as the president of the United States. The first female president of the United States.

In that moment of realizing her new power of foreseeing the future, she also realizes the power she always had in herself.

Her power is and always was her quick-witted mind, independence, spirit and her grace.

Her power is and always was her quick-witted mind, independence, spirit and her grace. She no longer thinks someone needs to save her.

Her power is and always was her quick-witted mind, independence, spirit and her grace. She no longer thinks someone needs to save her. She saved herself.

Her name is Astral.
