“A mirror?” she wondered, rubbing the smooth surface with her slender fingers.
“What’s so special about it? It looks so ordinary.”
“Just not a plain mirror,” replied the grandfather. His gaze distant, his voice was hoarse as he explained. “It’ll change your life to the deepest core. Here, since it is your sixteenth birthday, I’ll pass it to you as a present.”
“How will it change anything?” she retorted, tapping the pristine yet dull surface. “You must be joking! Always prancing about how I need to be more vain, so mean!”
“You will see in due time,” was the reply.
You will see in due time. Just how a single, useless mirror will change your life in many ways unexpected by anyone.
Grandfather was indeed correct. An Fei could not help but admit it. The mirror had completely changed her life, just as he had said.
Only, was she presented hell, or a new life?
“My dear wife, I particularly enjoyed those soft cries and croons you prepared last night. Husband wants to eat meat again!”
A handsome man dressed in black robes patted her on the back, softly whispering into her ear.
That handsome appearance combined with his devilish allure, he would torment her night and day without pause, tethered by a tender string of sweetness.
Definitely in hell. No doubt about it!
