The Mirror ~

   At the night of Halloween three middle school girls decided to have a sleepover, to play games, tell scary stories and have fun!

   It was almost midnight and the girls were joking around while playing truth or dare. Then one of them said "I dare you to play with the Ouija Board* ,or else you are a chicken! " The other girl quickly responded "I am not a chicken! " and she grabbed the board from the bookself. She got the board out of its box and placed it in the middle of the carpet. She then put her shaking fingers on the triangular planchette* and talked out loud " Hello, if there are any spirits here that wanna talk to us go ahead." She gulped and closed her eyes while the planchette slowly moved on the wooden surface of the board forming the words: Im here. The girl removed her fingers from it as fast as she could, without saying goodbye and putted the Ouija board back in its box. 

   At 1am the girls all got tired and decided to go to bed. One of them still hadn't recovered from the Ouija incident so they let one candle lit as a source of light. None of the girls could sleep so they were just talking in their beds. 2 am. There was a sound from the hall. 2:30 am. The sound got louder. 2:45 am. There was a loud bang on the door followed by the girls screams. 3:00 am, also known as the witches hour. The candle went out. They could feel the chills running down there spine. The temperature fell. One of the girls got up and turned the lights on. 

   They looked around the room expecting someone to be there but there was no one. They checked to see if the Ouija board was in the bookself and it was. After a while they were planning on going to sleep again. One of the girls turned around to see her reflection on the mirror. A tall shadow figure was standing next to her leaning its face towards her head. She screamed and turned to face the creature but nothing was there. The mirror cracked. There were screams. Everything went black. But there is one thing ill never forget. The shadow in the mirrror. It looked exactly like the one that stares at me when i go to sleep every night.




*Ouija board: also known as a spirit board or talking board, is a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0–9, the words "yes", "no", "hello" and "goodbye", along with various symbols and graphics. It uses a small heart-shaped piece of wood or plastic called a planchette. Participants place their fingers on the planchette, and it is moved about the board to spell out words. The planchette is supposed to move by the help of spirits.
