The Blank Face
The Blank Face
This morning when Akhil woke up, he could not believe his eyes. He could see the same ugly blank face that had been coming in his dream since last few days. It all happened few days back When Akhil met his new Psychologist Mr. Sharma, a 35 year old handsome lad. Since then the blank face has been horrifying Akhil, Earlier it came just in his dream but today, when he woke up, instead of his face, the mirror showed up the horrifying sight of the same blank face. He broke out in a cold sweat.
After gathering up some courage, He decided to get to Mr. Sharma, He reached there around 12pm. He straight forward went inside the cabin and without wasting a minute narrated the whole scene to him. Mr. Sharma listened to him carefully and then broke out into a laugh. He then asked Akhil if he had watched a horror movie yesterday, On recalling his yesterday’s activities, Akhil said – oh yes I did watch Annabelle creation, It really gave me Goosebumps. Mr. Sharma then said that this is the reason why you saw that face today in the mirror. It was nothing but an illusion. I would advise you not to watch horror movies. Satisfied by the answer, Akhil left the place and went to work as usual.
But the very next day, when he woke up he could see the blank face again in the mirror. He felt that there was something wrong with the mirror. So he furiously threw it out and went to the shop to buy a new mirror. He brought home a beautiful new mirror. He had peaceful sleep that day. The next morning. As he went towards the mirror, what he saw gave him a shock. The blank face was back. And this time he could hear it murmur something. It kept saying three words, well it was not I love you; It was that you will die. A deep chill went down his spine. He decided to take a photo of the blank face. But as he took the picture, all he could see was a beautiful blank mirror.
He called Mr. Sharma to know what it is; he arrived at his home within an hour. As he went near the mirror nothing except his reflection was to be seen. He then advised Akhil not to think about the blank face. It was just an illusion after all. Having no choice, Akhil agreed. To freshen up his mind, he invited his friends for a house party. He had great fun; it was around 12 am when he heard a knock on his door. Well anyone would get surprised to get his or her door knocked at 12 am in the night. He opened the door and could find nothing but a small note. When he read it his heart missed a beat. The note read - tomorrow will be your last day my friend.
He got so panicked that it is hard to say whether he fainted or slept. The next morning as he recovered his senses, He remembered a little about yesterday. He then went to the mirror and today he could see his reflection instead of the blank face. But a moment later, He could see something emerge out of the mirror. It was the blank face again, and this time it was not in the mirror. It was there in front of him. He falls on the ground. As soon as it had come, the face disappeared.
Now, Akhil was sure that some supernatural power was behind all this. He contacted Mr. Sharma but the line was busy. He decided not to go out of his house that day. He tried to contact Mr. Sharma many times, but the line was always busy. Maybe he had many patients for the day. So he decided to go and visit him. It was 11pm in the night, He rushed inside the clinic. He was sweating badly; Mr. Sharma gave him a glass of water and asked what the matter was. He then narrated the strange incidents he had been experiencing since past two days. Mr.Sharma then asked, Could you tell me what did this blank face look like? Akhil tried to explain but words hardly came out of his mouth, but somehow he was managing to explain the horrifying face... On removing a skinny mask from his face. Mr. Sharma asked – were you talking about this blank face?
