Acrux watched the CELL door swing open. A journalist walked in
to the cell
. The woman’s overly stretched smile was brilliant white, just like the walls which were made almost blindingly bright by the lights that intensely lit the space ( I think it would read better if you chose between blindly and intensely. It's the same description twice). The journalist’s blond curls cascaded over her bright pink blazer
and her azure blue eyes sparkled cheerfully as she jaunted ( Huh? Jaunted?) over to the table, taking the seat closest to the door. Sighing, Acrux meandered (Eh?) over to the table and sat down
across from the woman.
“Let’s just get this over with,” Acrux grumbled unhappily.
I think it has way to much description of the woman, for me. It's very distracting and leads me to believe the journalist is your MC. The contrast between her happiness and Acrux unhappiness is nice, but it would have more power without going into what color her clothes are.
Nice! I want to know why she is in a cell? Government cell since it's lit?
