Some Elders say that you shouldn't buy things from a sketchy Antique shop , because the things that are being sold there have the souls of the past owners locked up inside of their favorite stuff.

But wouldn't it be fun to mess around with humans just for a little while?

Yvette was scrolling through her phone as she walks down the street , she pulled down her hoodie as she tries to hide her face.She felt insecure on how she looked and how her body is different from her idols , for short , she hated everything about herself. She would go in deep lengths just to change everything she doesn't want , even for just a short period of time. Yvette sighs as she stalks the pictures of different pretty models , oh how she wished she was as pretty as them.

She just kept her head low while walking , until a stranger bumped at her shoulder quite harshly , making her fall into her butt. She hissed in pain as she rubs the spot that hurt bigtime , she turns around to try and confront the stranger but there was no one there , not a single soul in the broad daylight. Looking a bit confused , she stood up and pat her back to dust off the tiny rocks sticking at her pants.

A jingle of a bell was heard beside her , she looked at the source of the noise , It was a bell that was attached to a store's door. 'I don't remember a store like this , has it always been here?' Yvette thought to herself as she stared at the door. Something inside her was urging her to go and check inside , but she just stood there staring silently. She took a deep breath before entering the shop , stepping inside , she was greeted with different kind of things and gadgets , most of it looked old and outdated too.

"Oh hey there! Welcome to the Antique Shop can I help you with something?" A lady about Yvette's age spoke up , with a huge smile on her face. "I'm just looking , please don't mind me..." Yvette replied as she kept her head low , The lady chuckled at Yvette and put down the dusty boxes she was carrying. "So , what is it you desire Miss Yvette?" The lady said , smiling innocently. Yvette was taken aback on how the lady knew her name but she was to occupied on how the lady looked like.

"H-How did you know my name?" The Lady didn't answer and opened a huge drawer containing a big red box in a rectangular form. "Hmm , I see that you aren't satisfied of your looks , is it not?" At this point , Yvette was close from running away but her feet doesn't seem to listen to her and just stood there dumbfounded. "Don't worry Miss Yvette , I do not wish to harm you , I'm trying to help your wishes come true." The lady said as she carried the huge box at her side and dusted the cobwebs off.

"I understand that being unattractive is not what you wanted and wished to change your appearance in any way possible." She continued while opening the red box revealing a Mirror that was wrapped with strips of bandages. The lady then faced Yvette with a huge sweet smile on her face , she took Yvette's hand and guided her to the mirror. "It is not impossible to change in a short period of time , we'll just need to deal with the devil." It was like Yvette doesn't have full control of her body , her hands slowly touched the bandaged-wrapped mirror , caressing the strips that were about to fall.

"It's not that hard Miss Yvette. All you need to do is say my name three times in front of the mirror , and your wish is our command. What do you say?" The handed out her hand for Yvette to take , 'there's nothing wrong to try... right?' Yvette thought to herself as she shook the lady's hand , not knowing the disaster that was about to happen.

It was almost 11 o'clock , Yvette was standing in front of the mirror she just bought from the weird store , to be honest , she had no idea why she even accepted the Lady's advice on this , who knows if it was all a hoax. She carefully unwrapped the mirror and placed it on the floor , the mirror had scratches on the edges and cracks on the sides. She took a deep breath and closed her eyes , saying the name of the lady three times in front of the mirror.

Once she was done , she opened her eyes , but instead of her own reflection , it showed a completely different person , same height , hair color and eye color as her , but more- sophisticated... She slowly tried to touch her cheek , as the person on the mirror did the same , Yvette twirled around , so did the person on the mirror. , it was like magic. She scurried at her bathroom to pick a different mirror , and what was showed was not her own reflection , but the beautiful person she saw on the Antique Mirror.

Yvette laughed breathlessly , at last , she got what she wanted. She hurried back into the Antique Mirror and stared at the beautiful reflection in front of her , but what happened next scared her. The reflection on the mirror started waving it's hand into a 'come-here' manner , in which she oblige from curiosity. The reflection held out her hand while showing a soft smile , Yvette anticipated that the reflection wants to hold her hand , she slowly and unsurely reached out to the glass.

Her hand phased through the mirror which caught her off guard , the reflection immediately got ahold of Yvette's hand and yank her inside the mirror. "W-What are you--" The reflection then shove Yvette deeper into the dark edge of the mirror , she grunts in pain as she fell on her back. Yvette could see the reflection smirked infront of her and stepped out of the passageway-like mirror until it's body completely phased out of the area.

Yvette stood up and slammed her hands into the glass , she was stuck in there , and the reflection switched places with her. The reflection then picked up a nearby comb and started combing it's hair before speaking up. "I am Yvette , and you are my reflection. Goodluck trying to get out of that hell hole." It said as she smiled wickedly , Yvette can feel her face burning , it was too much pain at which she crouched down. She needs to get out of there.

no matter what.
