Mirror Image..

               It was past midnight when Rita was done with the last chapter. It was the last exam of the semester. Good, Rita thought. She was done with the syllabus and could revise in the morning. Mentally she made plans of going to the movies after the exam was done." Once the exam is done I m going to sleep straight 12 hours!" she decided.
               She rose from her chair and stretched herself. She carefully tucked the notes in her bag, took a sip of water and headed to the washroom. She was ready to sleep and then she saw her hair comb on the bed. The dressing table was right opposite to her bed. Making an effort, she walked to the dressing table and stared at the mirror.
               A week of sleep deprivation had made her eyes look weary and deep dark circles around them.
Then she saw the circles deepening around her eyes and her eyes almost popping out of those deep hollows. She touched her eyes but the image didn't.
               Then she saw her mirror image smiling at her....
