yet again
    He wished he didn't have to put his patients
    Through this kind of pain.
The mother wails and the father cries
The doctor can't look into the eyes

A Bright Young Thing

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2019

12th July 1924

'Evelyn!' Robert Harrington exclaimed.
    Mr Harrington was a large, plump man of about 40. He wore a dignified tuxedo that hugged too tightly around his waist so he looked more like a walrus dressed for a gala than a man but was well respected in this room, having been an officer in the war. As he told me over many awkward silences in his office, 1918 came and went and he had chosen to return to his...
