Reflections of Evil

The Terrifying Tale of Emily's Reflection and the Otherworldly Portal That Took Control

By kalaiselvan SubramaniPublished 2 months ago 5 min read

It was a quiet night in the small town of Ravenswood. The moon was high in the sky, casting an eerie glow over the deserted streets. Emily, a young college student, was walking home from a late study session at the library. As she walked down the dimly lit street, she felt a sudden chill run down her spine. She looked around, but there was no one in sight. She shrugged it off and continued walking.

As Emily approached her house, she noticed something strange. Her front door was slightly ajar. She hesitated for a moment, wondering if she should call the police. But then she heard a faint whispering coming from inside. It sounded like a woman's voice. Emily's curiosity got the better of her, and she cautiously pushed the door open.

Inside, the house was completely dark. Emily felt her way through the darkness, following the sound of the whispering. She soon realized that it was coming from her bedroom. As she got closer, she could make out the silhouette of a woman standing in front of her full-length mirror.

Emily's heart raced as she recognized the woman's face. It was her own reflection.

But something was different. Emily's reflection had a sinister look in her eyes, and her mouth twisted into a cruel smile. Emily watched in horror as her reflection slowly turned around to face her.

"I've been waiting for you," her reflection said in a low, menacing voice. "I've been waiting for someone to set me free."

Emily backed away, but her reflection stepped out of the mirror and grabbed her by the arm. Emily tried to pull away, but her reflection was surprisingly strong. She dragged Emily towards the mirror, and Emily felt herself being pulled inside.

As Emily fell into the darkness, she felt an overwhelming sense of dread. She knew that she was no longer in control of her body, and that her reflection had taken over.

Days turned into weeks, and no one in Ravenswood noticed that anything was wrong. Emily's friends and family had no idea that the girl they knew was now just a shell, controlled by her own reflection. Her reflection was careful to mimic Emily's mannerisms and speech, and no one suspected a thing.

But Emily's reflection grew restless. She wanted more. She wanted to kill.

It started with small animals. Emily's reflection would go out at night and hunt for stray cats and dogs. But it wasn't enough. She wanted to feel the thrill of taking a human life.

And then one night, Emily's reflection saw an opportunity. A young woman was walking alone on the same street Emily had walked down on the night she was taken. Emily's reflection followed the woman, waiting for the perfect moment to strike.

When the woman turned down an alley, Emily's reflection pounced. She grabbed the woman from behind and dragged her into the darkness. The woman fought back, but Emily's reflection was too strong. She strangled the woman with her bare hands, watching with satisfaction as the life slowly drained from her eyes.

From that night on, Emily's reflection became a serial killer. She would go out at night, hunting for her next victim. The people of Ravenswood began to grow scared, and the police were baffled by the string of unsolved murders.

But one day, Emily's reflection made a mistake. She had been careless, and someone had seen her leaving the scene of a murder. The police finally had a lead, and they were hot on her trail.

Emily's reflection knew that her time was up. She retreated back to the mirror, knowing that she could no longer escape the consequences of her actions. The police arrived at Emily's house, and they found her standing in front of the mirror.

As they approached her, they could see the terror in her eyes. Emily's reflection knew that she had been caught, and she couldn't escape this time. The police handcuffed her and took her away, but as they led her out of the room, they could hear a faint whispering coming from the mirror.

Emily's reflection had one last message before she was taken away. "I'll always be with you," she said. "I'll always be watching."

The people of Ravenswood were relieved that the killer had been caught, but they couldn't shake the feeling that something wasn't right. They avoided Emily's house, afraid of what they might find inside. But curiosity got the better of some, and they began to investigate.

What they found inside Emily's house was shocking. The mirror in her bedroom was no ordinary mirror. It was a portal to another dimension, where Emily's reflection had been trapped for years. Somehow, the reflection had found a way to break through the mirror and take control of Emily's body.

The people of Ravenswood were horrified by what they had uncovered. They had never believed in the supernatural, but this was something that they couldn't explain. The mirror was quickly removed from the house and destroyed, but the memory of Emily's reflection remained.

Years later, people still talked about the Mirror of A Murdered Soul. Some said that they could still hear the whispers coming from the mirror, even though it had been destroyed. Others claimed to have seen Emily's reflection in their own mirrors, watching them from the other side.

The town of Ravenswood never forgot about the horrors that had taken place within Emily's house. They had learned that some things were best left alone, and that there were forces in the world that they could never understand.

As for Emily, she never fully recovered from her experience. She lived the rest of her life in fear, always wondering if her reflection was still lurking on the other side of the mirror, waiting to take control once again. The Mirror of A Murdered Soul had claimed another victim, and it was a warning to all those who dared to look too deeply into the unknown.
