nora's reflection

Mirror mirror on the wall..


You follow Nora to her room. Both you and she go in, close the door and stand in front of the mirror. All you see is Nora´s reflection, serene and calm. You stand next to your friend for a bit, thinking that either this is a joke, or Nora has gone mad. But, sure enough, the reflection starts to smile. Why is Nora smiling, you think to yourself. You look at your friend and a chill runs down your spine when you realise, Nora has still the same expression.

„Hello, Nora“, you hear, the lips of your friend unmoving. „Finally quit, eh? You knew you could not do it. We both did. You brought your friend? How nice of you.“ This is not your friend talking, this is the reflection in the mirror.

„I did“, Nora starts talking, „but I think I made a mistake. I should not have quit the position.“

The reflection smiles. „Is that so? What changed your opinion? Your friend?“ The reflection addresses you.
