The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
The girl stood by the roadside, her beautiful party dress covered with a boy’s dark jacket, a teddy bear held loosely before her. It was cold outside, almost brutally so, but she seemed comfortable, almost relaxed, despite the blood-stained gauze that partially covered her forehead and eyes. I stopped the car to ask if she needed help, whether I could give her a ride. She climbed into the passenger’s seat with a smile, said “thank you,” and we drove down the rural lane.
