Broken Mirror

A Tale of Haunting and Horror

By Jananan SandajeshanPublished about a year ago Updated about a year ago 2 min read

There was an old mirror that sat in the corner of an antique shop. It was a beautiful piece, with a wooden frame carved into intricate patterns and a beveled glass surface that gleamed in the light. But there was something about the mirror that made people uneasy. Customers would glance at it as they browsed through the shop, but they always seemed to hurry away from it as quickly as they could.

One day, a young couple came into the shop looking for a wedding gift for a friend. They spotted the mirror and were immediately drawn to it. The woman admired the craftsmanship of the frame, while the man commented on how the glass seemed to reflect the light in a strange way.

Despite the shop owner's warnings about the mirror's past, the couple purchased it as a gift for their friend.

But as soon as the mirror was hung in their friend's apartment, strange things began to happen. The couple received frantic calls from their friend, who claimed that she could see faces in the mirror at night. They were always different faces, and they always seemed to be watching her.

The couple brushed off their friend's concerns, thinking that she was simply imagining things. But soon, they began to experience strange occurrences of their own. They would wake up in the middle of the night to find the mirror glowing with an eerie light, and the faces of people they didn't recognize staring back at them.

They tried to remove the mirror from their friend's apartment, but found that it was impossible to do so. It was as if the mirror had become rooted to the wall, and no amount of pulling or pushing would budge it.

As the weeks passed, the couple became more and more desperate to rid themselves of the mirror's influence. They sought out the help of paranormal experts, but no one seemed to know how to break the mirror's hold.

One night, the couple was awoken by a loud crash in their living room. They rushed to investigate, and found that the mirror had fallen from the wall and shattered into a million pieces.

But the relief they felt was short-lived, as they soon realized that the mirror's power had not been diminished. In fact, it had grown stronger. The shards of glass seemed to take on a life of their own, swirling and twisting in the air like a swarm of angry bees.

The couple watched in horror as the shards formed themselves into the shape of a face, and then another, and another. They recognized none of the faces, but they all seemed to be staring at them with an intense, malevolent gaze.

In a moment of panic, the couple grabbed anything they could find and began smashing the glass into smaller and smaller pieces. But no matter how many times they broke the shards, they seemed to reassemble themselves again and again.

In the end, the couple was forced to leave their home, the haunted mirror still unbroken and still calling to them with its ghostly whispers.
