Hump Day Hook 11: Attic Mirror

It's Wednesday Hump Day Hook again. Find the other writers here. It's also Mid-Week Tease, you can find the other writers here.
If you miss my other hooks, they can all be found here.

We will continue with Attic Mirror. Today Hitomi is thinking that she is becoming crazy, she just heard some voice coming from inside the mirror apparently...

Hitomi walked back in front of the mirror but instead of reflecting herself as any good mirror should have done, she could see a boy about her age in what seems to be his bedroom, a bit like if the mirror was a window.
“How did you get in here?” were her first words when she came back from her surprise.
“Well, the same way you did I suppose”, the boy answered staring at her as if she was the most curious thing he had ever seen. But his answer didn’t make much sense for her.
“I’m not in anything”, Hitomi said, “Well just in the attic.”
“And I’m in my room but I see you in my mirror which changes quite a bit from the usual red background I usually have. My first guess would be that you are seeing me in your mirror too”, he explained.
It seemed like a pretty smart guess but Hitomi turned around her head in her hand.
“I’m talking to a mirror, I’m getting crazy, it’s probably all that dust and that weird smell, I must be dreaming”, she stroke the side of her forehead few times, “Wake up! Wake up!””

  1. I would think I was dreaming, too. Nice hook! :)

  2. Good description of their confusion. Hitomi seems particularly bothered, poor girl. Nice hook.

  3. I learned in New Orleans just how fascinating mirrors could be. I hope she soon realises she's not going crazy

  4. interesting! thanks for sharing. :)

  5. Very intriguing the dialogue between them (and herself).
