FOR SALE. LARGE ANTIQUE MIRROR.
ORIGINS UNKNOWN. VERY POSSIBLY HAUNTED.
This is a beautiful grand victorian style mirror and has had pride of place in our North London studio apartment for several months now. However, I feel it's only fair that I tell anybody with an interest in buying it about the strange phenomena that has occurred since we acquired it. It is for this reason that we feel sadly unable to keep the mirror ourselves.
Many times since putting up the mirror, both myself and my flat mate have woken in the early morning hours screaming in pain. We both experienced what I can only describe as intense sharp stabbing pains throughout out bodies. They would strike us both at the same time, then dissapear as fast as they came. Our original suspicions were that somebody was performing some kind of voodoo or Black magic on us. The mood in the flat turned sour. I felt constantly as if there was a sense of impending doom upon us. As if something awful was about to happen. Both of us began to feel zombie like, as if drained of all our energy. Many times over the course of the next few months we were unable to move out of bed, our bodies weak and tired for no apparent reason. However, leaving the flat for any short amount of time would make us both feel instantly better. Upon returning to the flat, the zapping of energy feeling would strike again.
I would put things down and they would dissapear. Things were constantly going missing, keys, phones. Entering the bathroom one morning after hearing a loud bang, I found objects strewn out across the floor, and a tub of shaving foam, which had been on the other side of the room, headfirst down the toilet. Pictures have fallen from the walls. Many times while passing the mirror, I would see flickering shadows reflected in it. I would stand completely still and yet would continue to see them, quick glimpses of black darkness, darting around in the space behind me.
Last week I woke up startled at 3.30am with a pain in my lower back and bottom that felt like I'd been burned. I got up and looked in the bathroom mirror to find myself covered in deep red scratches going in all directions. I have short fingernails, and after checking the bed found nothing sharp or no loose springs that would explain such a thing.
Now, you may all scoff at this but pretty much exactly the same sort of diabolical infestation is happening to me at the moment. I am being haunted by a demonic, border collie puppy. Yes, it's true. Ever since Quiz arrived at my house, stuff has been mysteriously moving around the house, especially shoes, slippers, socks and other items of underwear. At other times I will be sitting upstairs working on my computer when I will hear a crash downstairs. When I go down to investigate the room will be empty but plates and cups, that were on top of tables or up on the kitchen sideboard, will have fallen onto the floor. And, the ultimate proof is the fact that, like the lads who sold the haunted mirror on eBay, I too have scratches on my arm along with small, needle like teeth marks.
However, I shall not be selling my haunted border collie. The little devil is worth all the pain.
