The Bedroom Mirror is a creepy story about a girl who looks at her reflection in the mirror and sees an unfamiliar face staring back at her.
There was a girl named Siobhan who was always fighting and arguing with her parents. One evening, when she came home from school, she got into a particularly nasty argument with her mother. Siobhan stormed upstairs to her bedroom and slammed the door behind her.
She happened to glance into the mirror and saw a face staring back at her. Siobhan almost jumped out of her skin, because the face staring back at her wasn’t hers. It looked like her, but the hair was tangled and unkempt and the face was dirty and unwashed.
Siobhan stared her reflection in the mirror. She stared deep into the eyes and she found no glimmer of recognition. They felt like the eyes of a stranger. She recoiled in horror.
“Who are you?” she demanded.
Her reflection remained silent.
Siobhan reached out and touched the mirror. The girl in the mirror reached out and touched it as well and their fingers touched.
“Get lost!” shouted Siobhan. “Go back where you came from!”
All of a sudden, the reflection’s hand grasped her by the wrist and started dragging her into the mirror. Siobhan struggled and fought, trying to wrench hersefl free, but it was no use. The other girl gave one big pull and Siobhan was hauled through the mirror.
When she woke up, Siobhan found herself in a dark, deserted forest. Strange animals squealed and cried in the distance. A strange green mist snaked around the trees. She started walking even though she didn’t know where she was going. She was searching for a way out of the forest, but she just kept walking in circles. Eventually, she sat down on a log, put her face in her hands and cried.
Meanwhile, in Siobhan’s bedroom, a girl was sitting on the bed, smiling from ear to ear. She started brushing her hair and cleaning her face with tissues. When she finished, she got up and kicked the mirror until it cracked. Just then, she heard a woman’s voice calling from downstairs.
“Siobhan! Your dinner is ready!” it said.
The girl went downstairs and walked into the kitchen. A man and a woman were sitting at the table. There was a vacant chair beside them, so the girl sat down as well.
“You’re looking very happy all of a sudden,” said the man.
“Yes,” the girl replied. “I suppose that I am simply glad to be here.”
