Kagami feared looking in mirrors. A woman always waited beside her reflection, wanting to drag her in. She didn't know why, just that it could happen.
But one day, Kagami was careless with a spoon. Polishing it, looking at its shiny surface, she was dragged. Beside her, in an otherwise empty world, the woman stood.
Kagami, trembling, asked, "What do you want?"
The woman pointed to the corner of her mouth, then at Kagami's. "Your lipstick has smeared."
Kagami whipped the smudge and was pushed, falling back into her own world, where she took care to look in the mirror.
