The Perfect Crime

Sadje’s What Do You See prompt is making me think a little differently today.

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows an earthen jug filled with red tulips. The vase/ jug is sitting on old stone steps.

I took a cleaning job at the mansion.  It didn’t take me too long to find the hidden contraband.  The boss lady had no idea of the stolen wares her husband was concealing. I had to think of the perfect way to get the precious heirlooms back to their rightful owner.

Every Friday night the head of the household would leave for a weekend “business trip.” That was my cue to remove a piece from the secret room. I was always encouraged to remove the flowers from the day-old bouquets.

Traveling on public transport would dangerous if anyone knew what I had. No one would think anything odd about taking an old pot with flowers to a dear friend. I would leave the gift on the steps of the rightful owner. Only they knew the significance of my gift.

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a rough track leading to a cottage in the woods. The track is bound on both sides with a wooden fence. There is a layer of snow on the ground.

They finally made it happen. Sam and Pat had saved their whole lives to retire away from civilization. The well was working. The small rooms each had wood burning stoves. There were two cords of wood stacked out back. The root cellar was stocked with enough food for the entire winter. Everything was just as they had planned. They would not need to see another human being for at least five or six months.

You can take away home
You can take away my safety
You can take away my comfort
But you can never take away my brilliant mind
It is a gift from G-d

What Do You See? Vacancy

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a red neon sign that reads “Vacancy” over a black background.

There’s a vacancy in my heart from where you once existed.
There’s a vacancy in my mind from where my thoughts have flown away.
There’s a vacancy in my spirit from the lack of human interaction.
There’s a vacancy in my soul from watching the sadness in the news.

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows two skeleton’s hands reaching towards a digital device enveloped in purple-pink haze.

The teenager ran the light because she was texting and not paying attention to her driving. The only things recognizable after the fiery crash were her hands and her cell phone. After the burial, her friends went to the cemetery to pay their respects. They had a deep discussion about the dangers of texting and driving.

Later that evening, some pranksters were terrified by the sight they saw. They swore they saw skeleton hands texting in the darkness.
