CW: The psychologist.

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that is a sketch or about a sketch.”
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.

Another patient.

“I’m Sergeant Phillips. This is Ivy.” – he announced walking in, and led the blind girl to the sofa.

Ivy was a witness to a homicide, when she was 5 years old. She hid, while her family got brutally murdered.

“Do you want her to sketch the assailant?”

I looked at him wondering how a blind girl could describe, much less draw a suspect.

As she drew, the sketch became apparent.

I slowly looked up at the sergeant, but his gaze was already fixed on me.

“She lost her sight in an accident a couple of years ago.”

            1. Motivated for sure, but just time is not on my side. I still reply to comments in a timely fashion, but I don’t always post when I want to, and I check out less of other people’s works, which is saddening to me. I thought things would fall into place by now, but I still can’t seem to find the “slot” for blogging.

        1. You should hear these tales parents tell kids nowadays to scare them into submission. They are about some Britchy, who hides behind anything and pranks them so hard that they die of fright.

    1. Thank you so much for the complement. It really is! It had a lot more words when I first wrote it, but had to cut it down to exactly 99. It’s a fun challenge. You should try it sometime.
