Child in the Mirror

Anon submitted:

I would prefer if this were kept anonymous.

I got up at night because I needed to use the bathroom and I really hate doing that because it freaks me out all the time, especially since the bathroom has a mirror and I can never see my face and I’m always worried if I turn on the light I would see something other than my face. Anyways, I hate getting up at night to use the bathroom even more now.

This night, after I used the toilet and washed my hands, I was tired so I just stood there in front of the mirror, leaning on the counter because I was tired. I stared into the shadow of my face, thinking the more I face it the less likely I am to be afraid of it and logic would take hold. But then in the corner of my eye, I saw something else in the mirror. It was short, child height, and was standing in the doorway of the room just opposite the bathroom so I could see it in the mirror. I jumped and the figure… skipped it looked like… toward the bathroom doorway. I slammed my hand against the light, turning it on, and there was nothing there. I stood there, catching my breath, making sure nothing was inside the bathroom or the other room for the next twenty or so minutes. When I finally went to bed, I tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep, and eventually I felt a cold, small hand quickly grab my ankle and release it. I screamed and turned on the lamp on my nightstand. Nothing was there.

When I looked in the morning, my ankle was purple, as if bruised.

FYNK James: 8/10 The cold small hand around the ankle gets me. Thanks for sharing the scares!
