Compelling argument – Sergio Gaut vel Hartman

“Do I know you from somewhere?” said my mirror image while I was shaving myself. “I think I do, I remember you perfectly well.”
“I don’t think so” I answered.
“I killed your twin brother then”.
“In that case you should called it suicide” I rebut.
“You’re mad, you’re delirious. I’ve killed him, I’m telling you.”
“If I’m crazy, then the hole in your chest ought to be created by my imagination”. My reflected image put a finger in the hole and took it clean.
“Now you see. There is no such suicide, like I told you” It laughed.
“I am telling you it was a suicide!” And I dropped down dead.
