Scorpio 30. Former reflections appearing on a mirror.
The mirror was found among the effects of a certain old duchess of Aab when she died. At first it seemed like a normal mirror, but the one who bought it came to realize, after experimenting with it, that the mirror was shy, but that once it came to know and like certain individuals, its owner being one of them, it would show its former reflections – faces that had once looked into it, for instance, or what seemed to be the passing scenery along roads on which the mirror had travelled during its owner’s journeys.
And as the mirror got to know her better and grew more fond of her it seemed also to delight in making her appear young and beautiful, even as she grew into old age, and enjoyed as well adorning the faces of those it detested with warts, wrinkles, horny protuberances, and a host of other uncomely distortions.
