Daily Darkness: Injury

Hey you!

Thanks for stopping by. I had a lot of fun with this one, so if you like it, let me know. I may explore making it a larger story one day…

Injury

 

Doc didn’t set the bone right. Everyone called him doc, but Mary never really knew if he had a medical degree. No degrees on the wall, practiced out of his own house, and now, this.

She looked at her plaster-bound arm, aching, itching.

Six weeks. It’ll be uncomfortable, but you’ll be better than ever in no time. Do NOT try to take it off yourself.

He’d injected a numbing substance for the pain. It hadn’t helped.

Four weeks in, she ripped the cast away.

Purple-black flesh twisted, her hand ending in claws.

He did something terrible.

And it was spreading.
