Agreeing to the terms, Balduin watches in amazement as Scapinelli approaches the mirror and summons Balduin's reflection from it, walking away with the blank-faced doppleganger in tow.

The hefty price of his bargain becomes clear, though, as his reflection begins to interfere with his newfound happiness in a most sinister way"--Container
