She heard the door shut and breathed a sigh of relief.  The room was confining and the view out the window was tortured; but neither of those things mattered.  She preferred the tiny room and the shitty view to nurses pretending to care.  Their fake smiles were like razors.

Looking down at the bandages covering her wrists, she remembered.  It seemed like a dream – the knife, the cuts… so much blood.  The absence of pain was the strangest part of all.  She still couldn’t feel it and that pissed her off.

That had been the whole point – to finally feel.

But, she couldn’t even manage that.


Friday Fictioneers is a weekly flash fiction prompt where we are given a photo and asked to write a 100 word story – beginning, middle and end. This one came in at 107 words.  I also chose to combine Just Jot It January hosted by Linda G. Hill.  Today’s prompt, hospital, is brought to us by Charlene at FaithtoRaiseNate.com.
