Mara had always wondered what happened to people and their legacy after they've died. She didn't want to be forgotten that easily, all due to the stupid fact that everyone is destined to die at one point or another. To avoid being nothing more than a mark on the ground with a few mundane words in remembrance, she started filming her life until the day that her big break in Hollywood came knocking on her door. It would make a good start to a reality TV shows or a documentary, at the very least.
When Ethel found the videos of the girl, she didn't know what to expect. What she certainly didn't expect to find was a girl so lost in the world of the bright lights that she began to see them as stars lined up in front of her and the only source of light in the whole world. How long could a girl last in a world full of fake smiles and how long can Ethel watch it go on for?
All Mara wanted was to be amaranthine; for her legacy to last on for years and years after she hit the END button on her camcorder, but Ethel didn't know if that was even something a teenager could handle all on her own.
