Beauty is Blind, Ch. 3Margot's ornate, full-length mirror was the most expensive thing sitting in the small house she and the waif shared. It sat in its usual spot, next to the fire place in the parlor. The waif had quite the fascination with it, but not for the reason most girls love mirrors. She loved to touch it around the edges. It had floral designs etched into it that she ran her fingers over nearly daily.She sang to the mirror, asking it if it could see her, and asking if she was beautiful. She did this quite often, until one day a voice finally answered, "Yes, dear child."The waif was taken by surprise at this response. Was there someone in the house that she did not know of? It certainly couldn't have been Margot. It was a man's voice."Sing for me."She sang a short cadenza before asking the man if he knew Margot.

"The real reason we never go in because she can't see a thing." This in itself was a liethey really couldn't afford it, but Margot didn't dare make it seem like they were trying for the Viscount to take pity upon them.Raoul hesitated before saying, "My wife spoke of a blind girl

Christine had sung the role of Elissa in an Italian revival production of Hannibal, and was just making her return to Paris, where she became famous with that very role."Christine!" people shouted. "Christine!"There was a girl standing amongst the crowd with red hair and light blue eyes that seemed to never really focus on anything. A blank stare was always on her face, though she smiled eagerly."Do you see anything, Margot?" she asked the woman next to her, who held her hand. "Can you see Christine?""Not yet, love. Not yet."The girl was a waif without a name but affectionately called "love" by Margot. She was blind, and had a love for opera, even though she could never see the performances themselves.
