The mirror showed a reflection that wasn't my own. I stared at the figure in the glass, feeling a chill run down my spine. It looked like me, but it was different somehow. The eyes were darker, the skin paler, the hair a shade blacker. It was like looking at a distorted version of myself.

I reached out to touch the glass, but my hand went straight through it. I pulled back, startled. What was going on? Had I gone crazy? Was this some kind of hallucination?

But as I looked closer, I realized that the mirror itself had changed. It wasn't just showing a different reflection, it was different. The frame was ornate, intricate, and looked like it belonged in a museum. I didn't remember it being like that before. Had someone switched it out while I wasn't looking?

I turned away from the mirror, feeling uneasy. Maybe it was a prank, some kind of practical joke by one of my friends. I would have to ask around and see if anyone knew anything about it.

But as I walked away, I heard a sound behind me. It was a soft, barely audible whisper, like someone talking in their sleep. I turned back to the mirror, and the whisper grew louder.

At first, I couldn't make out the words, but as I listened harder, they became clearer. It was a voice, a woman's voice, and she was calling out my name.

"Julian," she said. "Julian, can you hear me?"

I froze, feeling a cold sweat break out on my forehead. How did she know my name? Who was she?

The voice grew louder, more insistent. "Julian, please help me. I'm trapped. I need your help."

I felt a surge of fear wash over me. This was no prank. There was something seriously wrong with this mirror. But what could I do about it? How could I help someone trapped inside a piece of glass?

I hesitated for a moment, then decided to try and communicate with the voice. I approached the mirror cautiously, holding out my hand. "Who are you?" I said. "What do you want from me?"

There was a pause, and then the voice spoke again. "My name is Isabella," she said. "I'm trapped in the mirror. I don't know how long I've been here. I need you to help me get out."

I shook my head, feeling overwhelmed. "I don't know how to do that," I said. "I'm sorry."

Isabella's voice grew urgent. "You have to find a way," she said. "I can feel the darkness closing in around me. It's getting stronger every day. Please, Julian. You're my only hope."

I didn't know what to do. The idea of a woman trapped inside a mirror was too bizarre to comprehend. But something about Isabella's voice touched me. There was a desperation in it, a pleading that I couldn't ignore.

I decided to do some research. Maybe there was something online about haunted mirrors or trapped souls. It seemed far-fetched, but I didn't have any other ideas.

I spent the next few hours scouring the internet, searching for any clues. Most of what I found was nonsense, tales of haunted mirrors that were obviously made up. But there were a few stories that seemed more credible, more grounded in reality. They talked about mirrors that were cursed, mirrors that could trap souls.

One story in particular caught my attention. It was about a woman who had been trapped in a mirror for over a hundred years. According to the legend, she had been a witch who had been caught and imprisoned by a group of townspeople.
