(Reflected wave) adding voltage / subtracting current

why we add reflected voltage to the input voltage but subtract current from the input current?
Also why the reflected current is shown on the other side of the load, travelling back to the input source but not on the same path where it travels from? Does voltage wave reflect the same way as current does?

Start here with the special cases of an open circuit and a short circuit.
