The evil mirror
As we entered the house the door creaked. It was around 10 o’ clock at night and there was complete darkness in the house with owls hooting.
We were scared but still we decided to explore the house which Mark inherited from his uncle. His uncle did not have any family other than Mark and his parents, so according to his will they were to inherit his property after his death. And this house was specifically left in Mark’s name.
There was a big hall with staircase on the left side. It was dusty and the furniture was covered in white cloth. Both of us decided to explore the house one room at a time. We took the left side of the house first, we came across a room which had no furniture but had big ceilings, and in its heydays it must have been used for hosting parties and celebrations. There was another room right next to it which was a bedroom with green walls and rosewood furniture.
We continued exploring the house and came across an old mirror in the attic. It was at least 100 years old. It was a beautiful piece of art, and it was drawing us towards itself. The more we came closer to it the more it became stronger and we were drowning in its spell.
The next thing we knew we were inside the old mirror and everything in that world was black. There was no sun, no light. Everybody lived in darkness. And unlike our world the dark side prevailed there. The concept of good over evil did not exist.
Mark and I looked around, we did not know what to do or how do get out of there. The place was the same but the whole concept of living had been reversed.
People were out there to kill us because they could see the good in us and according to them it was wrong. We hid in a small shed until they were gone and carefully made our way to that house which Mark had inherited and found the mirror that brought us there.
We didn’t know how to get us back to our world. We tried a lot of things but nothing worked. It looked as if we were stuck there forever. But I thought we can’t lose hope just as yet, there had to be something, if the mirror can bring us to this world, then certainly it can take us back.
I thought about what we were doing when the mirror brought us here. Both of us were talking and laughing and having a nice time. So if we started behaving like the people here i.e. in an evil sort of a way maybe then the mirror would take us back. But how do we do that? We are genuinely not evil. All of a sudden we heard some noises outside. They had come to kill us, we had to get out of there and fast before they could get their hands on us.
It struck me if we could get them in front of the mirror, maybe the mirror will work but we had to careful not to let them go through it. They were coming for us, we had to act fast. Mark lured them toward us and just as we hoped the door opened to our freedom. Quickly we went inside the mirror and back to our world safe and sound.
To make sure they don’t follow us here, we decided to break the mirror and block the entrance to the other world.
