You are home alone, and you hear on the news about the profile of a murderer who is on the loose.
You look out the sliding glass doors to your backyard, and you notice a man standing out in the snow. He fits the profile of the murderer exactly, and he is smiling at you.

You gulp, picking up the phone to your right and dialing 911. You look back out the glass as you press the phone to your ear, and notice he is much closer to you now.

You then drop the phone in shock.

There are no footprints in the snow.

It’s his reflection.

    The title ruins the surprise, and it could be better done. Good concept, though.

    Is it really that hard to tell the difference between someone on the other side of sliding glass doors and someone’s reflection on the glass from your side…?

    It’s a good story, but I think I’d be able to figure it out and at least get hacked to bits knowing that it didn’t take me any time to do it.

    The reflection title dosent ruin it, becuase reflections are used all the time in creepypasta (usually involving mirrors and the occult).
    anyway good story, quite creepy first time i read it.

    does not work. reflection is ghostly character and he would have seen him floating. he would have gotten it on the first look, exept if he’s from somalia

    something like this actually happened to me before, i was sitting in starbucks reading a novel and i noticed a car stopped in front of me behind the glass door with this dude sitting in it. He was there for quite a while, about 3 hours when i realised the guy was actually the reflection of this man sitting behind me
