Mirror – Show me the Culprit (Science-Fiction #3)



Saturday, 22:00 :
How can this happen? I opened the door just now and I see things are scattered. It was my first party after lockdown and I left my house for just 2 hours. I should have ignored this party, but my friend wanted me to be present for his birthday. Someone has entered my room and threw off my clothes everywhere, scattered my chips and cleverly took out the ring. They should have waited for me to leave the house. How can I be so careless ! They took the diamond ring I had kept to give to my girlfriend. I kept it along with my books on the shelf and now my books are down as well.

This mirror is the only hope I have. I am proud to have made this mirror. All it does is store the video captured and play back with a delay of 24 hours. So it is not a mirror but a front camera on its top and a display with 24hrs delay, appearing like a mirror. I keep this near my books so that I have a psychological connect with myself everytime I appear in front. At 7 AM in the morning, I always look at the mirror and see how I looked the previous day. This makes me start with a smiling face everyday.

So I have to wait till 20:00 tomorrow and check what happens after that. Meanwhile I should clean up things and relax, anyway it is only with the ring and I can get another one. But I should know the culprit.

Sunday, 20:00 :
Ok, I saw my face leaving the site at 19:58 and the lights are Off. I should see the culprit anytime now….

It is 20:10, still a dark room. I am tensed biting my nails, I should leave my finger alive. Hey time, run. I should have programmed to adjust playback speed, I missed it……

Ok it is 20:30 now, I don’t see a glow in my face. Mirror is lifeless maybe.
OH IT IS NOT, I can see a shade now. Someone has come. Unfortunately I can only see, no sounds, no recordings, I should upgrade the mirror. Oh I see some shuttering glow.

………..here it is. I think those are nails, yes nails are visible. Now the wrist. Ok, a full sleeve hoodie but it is all happening in the dark. OH I CAN SEE HIS HOOD NOW but face hidden in the dark. WTF ! HE IS TAKING THE RING ! BOOKS ARE DOWN !
I am hitting my thighs now, it is gonna cry. My lips and teeths are at war.

OH Wait ! What is he doing now ! HE IS LIFTING THE MIRROR. He is carrying it to the living room. Oh my god, I did not expect this. Oh where is he taking that. Oh gosh. But I am looking at the mirror in my room now, but he took it already? Which mirror am I looking at now? I am confused, I cannot figure it out. What did he do to this mirror? Ok he is taking some things from the bag, Bag looks dark again. How can he even see in this dark shade? Oh he keeps the mirror in that bag. It is black shit again, I cannot see.

But I am having the mirror in my front and it was there when I entered yesterday. Maybe I should wait for him to return. But how does he know about my mirror….

I see some lights now, maybe he is taking the mirror from the bag. I see him again in dark shades. It is my room again, he is placing it in the same place it is there now. Oh, he is leaving it still and leaving my room.

Heck, What did he do to my mirror?

Eyes zoom in to the top right of the mirror.

WHAT IS THAT.

A new Sibling CAMERA.

HE IS WATCHING ME RIGHT NOW ? HE HAS BEEN WATCHING ME SINCE YESTERDAY !

Sunday, 08:00 :
“Hey wake up bro, your girlfriend is trying to reach you.” He wakes me up.

“I am still here. Did I not leave to my house yesterday?” I exclaim in doubt.

“You were drunk and we all are……”

“Ok I should leave now.” I rush to my house half awake.

I open the door and I see things are perfect.

I head for the ring and IT IS THERE UNTOUCHED.

Whew, It’s just a shitty nightmare. I should not drink anymore.

But……….
