The Mirror

Jenny Matlock
 
I have looked forward to this day all week.  I wasn't able to follow along last week, which means I'm ready to get my freak on. 
 
Jenny Matlock and her 100 word only writing challenge is a favorite of mine.  This weeks prompt is in blue.
 
The Mirror
 
As Emily walked into her darkened apartment, she wiped tears from her eyes. She had just left the hospital after saying goodbye to her dearest friend.

“Oh Pam, I’m going to miss you so”, she said out loud. She stopped in front of the antique hall tree that they had purchased not long ago. “We were going to have so much fun, why did this have to happen?”

As she looked at herself, the reflection in the mirror played tricks on her eyes. Pam was right there, and without opening her mouth, Emily heard her say, “I am at peace, all is well”

  7. And then Emily snapped out of it and said to herself, “That is the last fucking time I do acid! The last!”

  20. Wow. What a wonderful ending. For some reason I was leaning toward the macabre as I read this little gem of a story, and then you twisted me right around!
