FFM16-30 If the Man Had Seen the Sawdust

He awoke to darkness. He remembered little: men, van, cages.


Panic gripped him as he felt his body, searching anything that would indicate what they took. There was only darkness. His hands moved to his face, the edge of a bandage stretched across his eyes.

He realised it was not darkness, and started screaming.

Another little 55er for you. This was originally twice as long, but when I decided to see if I could cut it back to 55, I found I liked it better.
If you’re wondering about the title, it’s a reference to this old riddle.
