Forever Friends by Eva Linares

Every night, at the same hour, she comes for me. She’s the only friend I have. The only company I’ve ever known. Through the surface of the bedroom mirror, I see her wistful face. Her black, tangled hair dangles at her sides. Her skin a shade of grey, tattered with age like an old porcelain doll. I can’t help but smile. Her arms reach towards mine as mine reach towards hers. Her arms long and bony, her fingers twisted and gnawed. Our fingers entwine as she pulls me in, in into her world. She’s the only one I’ll ever need.
