100 Word Challenge


Darkness


"Madeleine. What did you see?"
Sean had seen her jump back in horror, hand to her mouth, and then she had fainted. Now, she had awakened, but was still struck dumb by whatever it was she had seen.
"Madeleine, please. Speak to me. What did you see?"
She was a seer, a psychic, a person who saw auras in others. She was kind and sensitive, and a true Empath. Sean had never seen her act like this before. The crowd around them started to move away.
She pointed at the man in the crowd, who stood, staring.
"I saw Darkness."
