Lydia glanced down the hall behind her and stopped in her tracks.
Vlad was still standing in the same place!
She flicked her eyes up to the corner mirror above where they had been conversing.
HE WAS NOT IN THE MIRROR!
But there he stood, watching her! Puzzled and a little alarmed, she gave a weak wave as she started to turn in at her own area.
Vlad looked up at the mirror for a brief instant, then directly at Lydia. He smiled and slowly turned to walk away, his eyes on her until he disappeared from view.
