Crime Scene Photos (#466 Flash)

The flashes blinded him briefly and he squeezed his eyes shut. Lights still flared behind his lids as he heard the whine of the camera before the next flash.

He knew it was necessary. His body was a crime scene and there could be no shadows.

The photographer asked him to turn and mumbled an apology. He knew the young man, seen him at crime scenes, knew him to be professional and respectful. There was another flash but his back was turned. He had a morbid desire to look at that photo; see the damage he could only feel.


AN: On a side note The Modern Man I Sing was originally titled Flash Bulbs and is still listed as such in my documents.

Beautiful (and sad) use of the prompt. Good job!

Thank you. I went back and reread Sing My Body Electric and realized that if I wrote it now it would be at least twice as long. I mean I introduced Martin in about half a paragraph.
