Winner: First Place Prize
Theme Prompt: Perception
Dr. Rorschach presented another ink-stained page to the boy. He was pleased by the simplicity of the boy’s answers; a reliable method to test one’s level of madness, he thought.
The boy fell into the ink, felt the tickle of clouds on his cheeks. Smelled Father's newly planted crops—with a hint of something sinister. The ripeness of decaying flesh. Those he’d buried beneath cultivated soil once he finished his experiments. He savored their delicious screams.
“What do you see? There are no wrong answers, mein Junge.”
“Puppies, Herr Doktor,” his eyes narrowed as the doctor scribbled in his journal.
