"Mipsy's Charm Bracelet" by crazy_holly_ii
The mirror is broken again. At least it's not on fire, this time, although she can hear her parents having a Discussion in shouted whispers downstairs. To them, this is probably not much of an improvement. Ear to the door, she hears someone coming up the stairs. She races back to her bed and flops down onto it dramatically just as the door opens. "Mipsy?" her mother says. "Yeah?" "You're not in trouble, sweetheart," Mum says, taking a seat on the bed next to her, "but your dad and I are becoming a little concerned." "I can't help it!" she bursts out, close to tears. "I don't want to keep breaking things, or zapping frogs in the backyard, or -" "- I know," her mother says soothingly. "Dad's really mad, isn't he?" she says in a small voice. "Of course he isn't! You know we both love you." Mipsy takes a few deep breaths, trying to calm down as she lets herself believe that. Her mother takes to brushing her fur, a task Mipsy abandoned after the mirror accident. After she's finished, her mother says, "Why don't we start picking up some of the glass, hm? No reason to hurt yourself later." Leaving her mother to sweep up the tiniest pieces, Mipsy finds herself distracted with the larger ones. Her reflection in many of them is staggered and multiplied by the spiderwebbed cracks. It scares her, just a little bit. She has nightmares about much scarier things, sometimes. Mud monsters and evil wizards and the like.

Jane, Natia, and James all went home several hours ago. I told them I wanted to stay and work on things related to the crime ring that my mom and dad were working to get rid of. I wasn't getting very far. I didn't know if it was because I didn't have enough information right now or if it was because I needed sleep.
