Who Am I?

What have I done?

Where am I?

Around me are only white walls. There are no windows, no paintings, no colours. I have a single bed with a grey bed frame that has some bars at both ends. The room is small; about the size of a hotel room but only with a bed and a chair.

Everything is white, just simple and white.

Next to my bed is a door that is locked. I never saw it opening before. On the right side, there is another door that takes me into an, also white and simple, bathroom that fits a sink, shower, and toilette.

I don't know for how long I've been here but I slept for about 10 times. Every time I woke up, there was a tablet with food on the chair. It is delicious with a variety of fruits, vegetables, and meat. I'm not starving, but I also don't know from where and from whom this food comes from.

Since the first time I woke up in this bed, I am asking myself the same questions.

What have I done?

Where am I?

Who is keeping me here, and why?

What is behind this door?

The only object I have is a small piece of a mirror, about the size of a hand that I found under the bed. I'm hiding the piece under my mattress because I don't know why I have it and if they will take it from me. the other day I recognized a tiny hole in the wall where I assume a mirror was hanging on a nail.

What has happened in this room before?

Sometimes, I stare for hours into the mirror and yesterday I thought I saw someone else for a second. I might get insane and should stop staring at it all the time. I hope by staring at myself I will find answers in my light blue eyes, which go along with my shoulder length, blond, straight hair.

There was it again!

This time I'm 100% sure my eyes changed to green colour. What does that mean? What is happening to me?


Days gone by without anything special. I eat the food I get after waking up, I think about all the questions in my head and go to sleep. I spent, even more, time staring at myself now and hope it will show me more. But nothing has happened since days beside that weird dream I had for two nights so far. It is blurry and unclear and I don't understand it. I saw those green eyes in my dream, but no face, nothing else. Who do those eyes belong to? Why did I see them in the piece of the mirror, and now, also in my dreams?


Another couple days passed by and I'm already convinced those eyes are a hallucination of my locked mind. I'm probably already insane. I have nothing here beside this mirror and all I see is myself. What was that? Something changed for the fraction of a second. Then it was gone. What was it? I couldn't see it that quickly. There was it again. And again. My hair was black and my eyes were green. While I was holding the mirror with my left hand, I used the right one to grab some of my hair and pulled it in front of my head where I could see it. It was blond.

"Hi Jane!", my black-haired I said and I dropped the mirror shocked and scared. What was that? Did that just happened or am I completely insane now?

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book.
