This is the fifth and final piece written for voice week. Each of the pieces was based on the same prompt but told using a different character’s voice. This has been an amazing experience for me. I enjoyed writing the pieces and reading all the other great entries as well. This one is certainly over the 100 words, apologies for that!
The Crime – Part 5
I stood in judgement. He had no sight but looked as if he read my soul. I placed my hands on his shoulders focusing on his mind. When I broke our contact, I witnessed the final flicker of the refined gentleman. He is now as others see him, his memories stored only in my mind. I wiped my eyes with the back of my hands.
The fat one came next. His fear pulsed through me. I felt deliciously energised. For him I had neither remorse nor mercy. I took his memory but kept his insufferable personality intact.
Finally, to the girl, she at least had a pulse. I bent down and gave her a few drops of my most precious fluid. By the time others arrived they would just think she had slipped on the ice.
I created a monster when I took Alistair as my companion and have been cleaning his messes up ever since.
What does the voice of this piece tell you about the character?
