“The Face” / Memorable Fancies #1103

   I looked in the mirror and saw, of course, my face. Do you know what I couldn’t see in the mirror? That’s right, I couldn’t see whatever was behind my head. Perhaps when I moved my head it moved, too, to stay unseen.

     What’s back there? I wanted to know; I needed to know! So I made a plan. I’d put mirrors behind me as well as in front, and two more angled on each side. Yes, like a fun-house. Then no one, nothing could hide behind my head.

   And so I built my own fun-room although this one was deadly serious. I looked. There was the inside of my face, a hollow that was my nose, two windows, my eyes. A mask. Just like a mask. Just as she’d always said in those moments of rage.
