Crowded and hidden, Cassandra was never in the front. She was always kept in the back, like a lost gem trying to shine its way through the darkness. She danced elegantly, as beautifully as she could, never once failing to do what was asked of her. In her eyes, she was the obvious choice for the lead in every show she did. There was no one better than her, except that’s not what the directors thought. The directors always pushed her into the back, locking her into a place where she couldn’t shine. Her glow was dampened and thrown aside every time she danced, but that wouldn’t stop her. One day she would find someone who would recognize her gleaming talent and give her the recognition that she deserved. Today was not that day, so for now she would stay in the back, shining has hard as she could.
