The Evil Reflection

Muskan Sharma

“Reflection” has countless meanings for every person. But the realization about what the “reflection” is showing changes the whole situation regardless of the meaning.

I am Rachel, 17 years old, the only daughter of my loving parents. My mom and dad have raised me with all the love and kindness. I have many friends and I love makeup, styling and social media. Typical 17 yr. old.  I have a happy life, well after what happened. I think I “had” a happy life or I had a “life”.

Realization

So a few weeks back, while I was getting ready for school, I noticed something strange even after dressing up – my reflection seemed a bit pale and her skin was of a shade lighter than mine, and her eye colour was darker than my usual brown ones. I even noticed some dark circles, which was strange because I followed a healthy lifestyle but ignored my observations that day.

Getting Noticed

noticing changes

A few days passed by, when I was coming out of my classroom one of my classmates complimented me on the darker shade of my eyes and asked if I was using coloured eye lenses. I was a bit surprised because I have never used eye lenses, I have pretty brown eyes and I don’t want to ever change it. I ignored her comment and moved on to my next class.

A few days later, I met my old neighbour, Ashley, in the mall and she said I was looking a shade lighter, but amidst our talks her comment got lost. Days passed by and I continued to get such weird remarks from different people. My mom said my hair was frizzy and I need to go to the salon – I didn’t pay much attention because a trip to the salon, well why not? Then recently while I was setting up the table for dinner, when dad commented suddenly that I looked shorter, and now all these comments had gotten too much for me to handle.

Reality

The reality of things

I ate dinner in silence and went up straight to my room. I was sitting on the bed, scrolling through my Instagram feed when a thought struck me. I opened my phone camera and took a selfie and much to my horror, I looked exactly how my friends and family were describing. Frizzed hair, dark circles, lighter skin tone, and darker eyes.

Paranoia struck – I immediately stood up with my phone in my hand and checked myself out in the mirror, and strangely everything was fine. In fact, the reflection looked good. It had my usual brown eyes, perfect hair, and just the right complexion. Even the weird paleness of skin I had noticed before was gone. But then why is everyone saying otherwise, even my parents, and how can the phone camera lie?

I was so confused and scared, I wanted to run downstairs to tell mom and dad but didn’t want to disturb their sleep so I took a step back and then thought to take a closer look at the reflection. So I moved towards the mirror and the reflection also moved towards me, unconsciously I stepped a bit closer and close enough to the mirror to the point where it should have hit the mirror but instead it went inside the mirror as a gateway.

From my point of view, I saw a foot coming out. The next thing I felt was a force pulling me inside, I was in a dark room and all I could see and understand was that I was pulled inside of the mirror. On the other side of which stood my reflection, smiling an evil grin at me, she looked like my older self, while the real me looked the same pale.

The End

The End?

And now I’m sitting here, typing this story in my phone with no signal, drained battery. I don’t know how long it has till it’s completely drained. I don’t even know why all this happened to me, and what that creature is. My mind is full of questions and a lot more with concern for my loved ones. My only hope is that the reflection doesn’t harm them in any way. I am hopeful for now but don’t know how long it will take, a month, year or forever. This is perhaps the end.
