Face it


Veena hummed a tune in front of the mirror, before bedtime. It was a new mirror they’d bought only that day.

She reached for her comb, but knocked down the cream. Drat.

As she bent, she looked up.  Her mirror image was staring down at her, craning its neck.

“All well?”

Mystical Skeptical Me said...

"Couldn't" is the right word cause net was dead :P

PS: How do you "bold" the words? :/

Mystical Skeptical Me said...

Yea???? :D

phatichar said...

MSM: Ha ha..ok. To bold the words, use the 'b' tag as shown below the comment box, when you click on 'Post a comment' here. For some weird reason, it didn't show the tags I typed earlier, because maybe there wasn't any word within it. I don't know how else to show you, other than maybe emailing that to you. Else, you could google on how to use the bold tag in HTML?

Mystical Skeptical Me said...

Awesome!

Mystical Skeptical Me said...

Yayyyyyyy!! Thanks!!!!!!

aks said...

kismitoffeebar said...

hehehehehehehe sorry I don't mean to laugh. Infact I don't want to laugh because I always always knock the cream off when I reach for the comb.
Thank you for telling me never to look at the mirror as pick up the cream.
and on top of it "All well?" ante. Devare!!!!!!!!! well-e gathi!

alice said...

I love this. It's kinda cute, as much as horror can be anyway.

Not that I'd want it happening to me! :D

Blue Lotus said...

Oo La La..Awesome.
I think of that sometimes and shun the mirror for rest of the night... :D

Rohuness said...
