Dreading, but knowing, she turned her head slowly for a direct glance at herself.
Her own reflection kept startling her. When she woke, at bedtime, in restaurants, wherever she was. Every time she saw it, the familiarity of her former self faded a little more. It couldn’t be her. Yet it was her.
When she arrived home, she went into the bathroom to stare at herself. Her face looked gaunt, tired. The eyes that always danced were now vacant.
