I am scared of Bloody Mary.

I am scared of Bloody Mary. No, I am not talking about the cocktail or the infamous 16th century English queen. I am actually talking about the murderous woman who comes out of mirrors either to scratch you or stab you to death. Ever since the story was told to me when I was ten years old, it has been stuck in the back of my mind, tormenting me.
First of all, I don't mean to imply that I'm absolutely horrified to look into a mirror because that would be a downright lie. It's just that when get up in the middle of the night and happen to look into a mirror a have a bit of a heart attack. This is why I tend to avoid looking into a mirror when the lights are off, in fear that she could be standing behind me. And yes, I know you technically have to chant in dark room in front a mirror to summon her. However, the mere thought of it sends chills down my spine.
Don't get me wrong, I haven't had a nightmare relating to this in years. Simple thing such as wandering around the house at night and then glancing in a mirror spook me. My heart starts starts to pound and I have to remind myself the horrific children's stories rarely prove to be true.
It is a bit embarrassing that I am still terrified of something as simple as this, but I guess that everyone has their own quirky little fear. That's proof that we're human. Bloody Mary just happens to be mine and I have my overactive imagination to blame for that. So maybe, I'm not completely off my rocker, at least not yet.
