Ellie Swanson sat at her dressing room table. She sighed and peered into her mirror. She had stayed behind later than the other girls most of the time, she felt this was proof she wanted this more than them. Tears had left marks down her beautiful cheeks, her makeup smudged and damp.

She sniffed and pulled a tissue from a box to wipe her eyes. The reason for her tears was earlier, one of the judges in the competition, the beauty competition Ellie so wanted to win, had told her during rehersal that she had looked like a 'spastic' during her singing performance. Harsh, even by their standards. Not to mention incredibly intolerant. 'If there were anyone in the competition with a disability, said comment wouldn’t have gone down as smoothly' thought Ellie. Most of the other contestants had laughed behind Ellie's back at the comment which further upset her. She knew they were her competition but thought it was horrible for them to laugh at the comment.

Ellie stood and pushed back her chair. She was dressed in a beautiful, red dress that reached her feet. Her blonde hair was combed back into a beautifully prepared bun.

Around her neck was a circle of shiny white pearls that, as a matter of fact, had been passed onto her from her late grandmother. Her relationship with her grandmother had been the only stable relationship Ellie had had, loosing her had made Ellie even more determined to make a name for herself.

She walked up and down her dressing room, admiring herself. She looked beautiful. Bragging wasn’t something she particularly enjoyed doing, but she
did look beautiful. There wasn’t a single doubt about that. her slim figure and beautiful Alexander Wang dress were a perfect combination.

She ran her hand over her hair, straightening out any loose strands. She turned back to her mirror and forced a smile. If only her grandmother could have been there to see her now thought Ellie, she should be proud of her granddaughter. Ellie glanced in the mirror for the final time and then nodded and exhaled deeply as she took her seat again in front of the mirror. She kicked off her black stilettos quickly and pulled her hair loose from the bun and ran her fingers delicatly through her hair to straighten it out. She smiled and grabbed a wipe from the box on her table. She pressed it against her face and closed her eyes. She began to wipe the makeup away. Once finished, she leant over and dropped the wipe into the bin beside her vanity table.

Once she sat up again to face her mirror, she spotted a figure behind her. They were dressed in a thick, black robe, a plain white full face-mask covering their face. Ellie gasped and spun round.

ELLIE: God, you scared me! Gregg? Take that stupid outfit off, I'm really not in the mood tonight!

Ellie turned and continued wiping her makeup with a second wipe. Once finished, she disposed of it and glanced back at the figure still stood silently behind her.

ELLIE: Look, Gregg, please get out I need to get changed now.

Ellie waited for an answer but the figure didn’t move or talk. With a sigh, she stood and walked over to them. gripping their arm she tried to frog match them away

MARIA: Come on, out! NOW!

The figure suddenly pulled a pair of scissors from inside their robe. Ellie gasped. She struggled and tried to pull her hand away but the intruder grasped her arm and had a firm grip.

ELLIE: Oh, my God! That the fuck!

The person pressed the scissors against Ellie's bare forearm and slashed across sharply. Ellie screamed and recoiled, pulling her arm back in distress. Blood seeped out of the wound and she stumbled backwards whimpering

ELLIE: God! Help me! Somebody, help!

Ellie stumbled back and crashed into her vanity table. All the makeup dropped onto the floor, distracting Ellie. The intruder hurried forward and grabbed her jaw. Ellie gave a muffled scream, and the figure smashed her head against the mirror beside her. She screamed again, shards of glass errupted from the fram and sank into the back of Ellie's head cutting her head open.

ELLIE: No! (sobbing) Please, don’t!

The attacker continued to smash her head twice against the now completely shattered mirror. They stopped and flung her across the room. Ellie flew into the dresses rack, knocking it over and falling to the floor herself. The attacker breathed heavily under the mask, moving towards Ellie once again. She got to her feet as the figure swung the scissors towards her. She screamed and ducked. The scissors planted into the wall. Ellie stared at the mask as the attacker pulled at the scissors, trying to remove them from the plaster wall. Ellie quickly hurried to the door, she pushed aganst the door sharply but it was stuck fast. The attacker pulled at the embedded scissors and retrieved from the wall and raced after her.

They ran at Ellie grabbing her by her bloodied hair, as she pulled the door ajar. She yelped as they slammed her face into the door, pushing it shut again. Tears cascaded down her cheeks and blood ran from the open cuts in her head, as the intruder spun her round and forced her onto a vanity table. Everything that had covered the table was pushed off, smashing on the floor. The attacker wrapped his hands around Ellie’s neck, Ellie faught back and pushed at her attackers mask trying to force their weight away from her, as the person was forced back they pulled at Ellie's neck, gripping her beloved pearl necklace and snapping the golden chain, the pearls sprang into the airs and dropped to the floor like snow, the attacker gripped Ellie once again around the neck.

ELLIE: (choking) No! Help!

The attacker tightened their grip and Ellie began to gasp for breath, spluttering and coughing. her eyes bulged and began to redden She quickly brought up her knee, forcing it against the attackers stomach. They stumbled back and Ellie shoved them over onto the ground. As they fell, they kicked her ankles and she slipped too. They rolled on top of her, pinning her down. She screamed as they gripped her hair and lifted her head.

ELLIE: Please, don't kill me!

The attacked plunged the scissors into Ellie’s chest, inches below her throat. They repeated the process, stabbing her over five times. As she slowly bled to death, they slashed her throat from left to right. Blood poured from her wounds and bubbled from her mouth, as the killer released her body.

She slipped back onto the floor, her body bloodied and bruised and her dress torn and bloodied. Amongst her were several of the pearls that once were part of her mush loved necklace.
