Growing up she had been warned to never look at a mirror at night. Much harm could come her way if she did. She had been warned day in and day out and she took it seriously. Then one day she threw a fleeting glance at the mirror and she saw it staring back out at her.
She was never the same after that.
She then papered over anything in which she could see her reflection. People thought her wild hair was a fashion statement but it was a symbol of fear.
But then he came into her life and got her to peel back the layers and fears. She was liberated. And then…
She saw his reflection in the door and he was the monster.
