VisDare 44 :: Parallel
She winked at herself in the mirror, pleased with her attempts at styling her hair for tonight’s party. Her smile faltered just a little as her reflected self winked back, a split second later than expected. There is was again, the feeling something wasn’t right, that the self in the mirror wasn’t an exact reflection. Uneasy, she raised her hand up near her face, and watched the reflection follow along. Perhaps it had been a trick of the light, she tried to convince herself, like she did every time, but she didn’t quite believe herself. Everything was fine, normal, nothing wrong with the mirror, but the unease persisted, as she spared the mirror a final glance before slipping out of the room.

Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Ooo, very interesting. I wonder what happened next. Did the mirror self continue to play her along a few more times? Or did it reveal itself as something separate? Or perhaps it was really just a trick of light.
Hopefully one day I’ll get some time to sit and write more from this little snippet! Thanks for stopping by, and I’m glad you enjoyed it!
From L&P or something new? Tis great as usual xxx
ETA it strikes me as a flashback – like middle age glimpsing the young woman she once was!
Just a little standalone this one is. Glad you like it!
