This is my third of five pieces written for voice week. Each of the pieces is based on the same prompt but told using a different character’s voice.
The Crime – Part 3
I straightened my name badge and put on more Brut. Beth hadn’t left the hospital yet. She hadn’t called down for an escort either. I’d walk her to her car anyway. That girl had a wiggle. Only girls with curves in all the right places walk like that. I glanced at camera 1, she was handing our resident bum a hot drink. I could practically see through her uniform. She must have been freezing. I scooped up my coat and opened the booth but she had already gone. I frantically searched the cameras for her. Camera 4 showed her body writhing about on the ground as if fighting against somebody. I phoned for backup then rushed to her, it was too late, the sicko had left her to die.
What does the voice of this piece tell you about the character?
