The one in the middle

The one in the middle. The spotlight is on her. She is in focus. All eyes are on her.

The one in the middle. She is in the prime of her beauty. One sister is withering under life’s treacherous uncertainties, the other is yet to blossom.

The one in the middle. She is beautiful. Every line is perfectly etched. Every hue well defined. If you want perfection, you don’t have to look much farther than her.

Why then has she turned her back on us? Why do her shoulders sag?

Happiness! Why does it elude her? Is perfection not enough?

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
