MLMM Photo Challenge — Reflection

He looked into the mirror, expecting to see his reflection. But instead he saw his black derby hat, his black shirt, and just empty air where his head should have been. He gasped.

He turned around and closed his eyes. He took a deep breath and furtively turned back toward the mirror. He opened his eyes slowly. Again, he gasped.

What has become of me? he wondered. His hands reached up to touch his face, but as in his reflection, there was nothing between his hat and his shirt.

This is when it dawned on him. He was an evil person, sinister, conniving, malevolent. And because of that, he was no longer worthy of being considered human.

        I guess we’d call that a Bowler Hat here. So I knew the style but not the US name.
