Normally you sleep soundly, but the thunderstorm raging outside is stirring you from your sleep. You begin to doze, then another crash jolts you awake. The cycle lasts most of the night. So you lay there, eyes open and outward, looking at your room stretching out before you in oblong shadows. Your eyes move from nameless object, to object, until you reach your mirror, sitting adjacent to you across the room.
Suddenly a flash of lighting, and the mirror flickers in illumination. For a scant second the mirror revels to you dozens of faces, silhouettes within its frame, mouths open and eyes blackened. They stare out at you, their black pupils fixed upon your face.
Then it is done. Are you sure of what you have seen? Unsettled, you don’t sleep for the rest of the evening. The next morning you remove the mirror from your wall and toss it in the trash. It didn’t matter if the vision you had seen was of truth or falsehood, you wanted to be rid of that mirror. In fact, you scrap every mirror in your house.
Weeks pass and the event of that night falls into passive memory. You are spending the day at a friend’s house and it’s time to use the bathroom. While you are in there the faucet starts to run without you prompting it. Taken aback by this, you do not yet act, trying to reason with your paranoia in your mind. The water starts to steam and a skin of moisture covers the mirror up above. You’re watching intently as words form:
“Please return the mirrors. We miss watching you sleep at night.”

Old pasta from the original site but one i enjoy.
Muah ha ha ha harrrrrrrr.
It’s a good thing I never look at my mirror this creeped me out a little
I have mirror at the end of my bed. It’s funny because, every time I look in it I see a flicker of movement darting behind me.
this is oddly cute.
And I have a HUGE mirror to the left of my bed….I’m already frightened by mirrors….. Now it’s with more reason…. I hope I’m not the only one who sees many things though their mirror that would be better left forgotten…
Whats a mirrior
This has brung back a memory about an over large handprint that was always on my mirror. No matter how many times I cleaned it.
I think the things are cute, whoever they are, they don’t seem violent, so watch me sleep, I would say. I’d rater have people staring at me as I sleep than people attacking me
Wow 😛 That was unexpected
I wanted more, but was still satisfied with the vagueness at the same time. Enjoyed the closing.
Lol they asked for the mirrors to return so nicely it brightened my mood good job.
AAARRRRGGGHHH I’m so mad – I wrote a pasta with this same name and I had to change it!
BTW aw, you asked so nicely, sure you can have the mirror back!
Whoa, I two mirrors in my bed room, and that just scares the living crap out of me.
I never look into mirrors at night, this was really creepy, but hey, they seemed like benevolent forces, sure, put the mirror back
Pretty good for a tiny pasta.
you shouldn’t put mirror near your bed or sleep on a place where mirror facing you it’s not good it suck out your light out and bring nightmares
Wooooo, that was good! 9/10 breads.
That was good.
dude im afraid of mirrors, you’ll almost never see me near it but now I’m gonna do the same, throw all my mirrors away even if my mom kills me.
love it , good thing I don’t have mirrors in my room
Watching me masturbate through a mirror you mean?
Well written. Cute twist.
This was great, and to be honest you even feel bad for the aparations he saw in the mirror, or whatever they were, they seem greatly interested in watching him sleep, if that’s the best thing they have for entertainment no wonder they want the mirror’s back on the wall.
love the twist in the end. enjoyed it. 10/10
I am so genius, that I not only read this at night, but I also have a massive mirror at the side of my bed….and there’s a storm outside. 11/10 I won’t sleep all night.
Nice idea like it a lot but u had some typos… better than what I can do…pls write more
Well then…I’ll just replace that mirror back into my room then…
I love this. Its cute how they as for it back, like they want some reach of the world they are barred from. Its beautifully written. I love how they scare the narrator and they follow her like she is the only person they have
Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got the dues in life to pay
@OmniscientStalker I once read a story about how maybe mirrors are portals, and your reflection is the only thing blocking you from getting to the other side. As if your reflection knows that things are worse on the other side, and is just trying to protect you. Just a thought. 🙂
You’ve made me more scared of mirrors now, thanks a lot asshole! 😀
so great story and i read it. i have a mirror in my room oposite my bed in my room ill stare at it untill middnight now thanks for great story.
If they removed all the mirrors in the house, why is there still a mirror above the sink?? Not scary at all.
Don”t worry. I didn’t plan on sleeping tonight anyway :/
Well, if this is true you’re not the only one who sees things in their mirrors…
Well, if this is true, then you aren’t the only one who sees beings/entities/creatures in the mirror…
I’m so glad I don’t have a mirror in my room…phew! Hahaha!
i loved this. they asked so nicely it was cute. yes you may have the mirrors back and i will be adding ten more.
