The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
Mommy, I Can’t See
by Asena Lourenco
I couldn’t be sure of the soft object in my hand. Touch had never been my strongest sense. The chill of the icy breeze rattled up my fingertips and spread throughout my limbs. My thin jacket struggled in the battle to keep the wind out. I shivered. My long hair floated away from my face, mocking me in what would be a clear picture. I could feel the warm liquid dripping down my cheeks in rivulets down my delicate skin. Slowly, the mild tingling became a painful burn before the liquid solidified. I let myself believe, just for a moment, that if I removed the bandage from my eyes, then I would be able to see the brown dirt by my feet and the trees that towered over my minuscule figure. I never thought that ever again.
