Mental (150)

It had been years since he had seen Dorothea Dix Mental Institution. The last time he was here, he was being evaluated for competency in a trial. That seemed like a life time ago. All he could remember was a patient called Wild Bill and a bunch of ink blot cards.

“What exactly are those cards good for?” he wondered as he sat there.”All I ever saw in them were clouds, butterflies and bats. Except for that one. It looked like a crime scene marker where a body was laid on the ground.”

As the whistle sounded, he lined the wrecking ball up on the room he had stayed in. It was time to smash his past, because the future awaited.

Flash word is mental. Maximum word count is 150. I only had 121. To see what others are writing, or to see the Flash rules, visit Flash in the Pan at the M3 blog.
