Mirror Image

The woman stares into the mirror, not understanding exactly what she’s seeing.  The image reflected back at her is her own, but it is distorted.  The flesh on her face hangs low like melting rubber, revealing the bone of her eye sockets and the pink of her lower gums.  Most of her hair is missing.  The bits that remain are clumped together in small scraggly patches.  Her eyes are yellowed and unhealthy.

She puts a hand to her face, wondering who would create such a vile trick mirror.  As she does so, she feels her skin droop over her fingertips.
