Tunnel Vision

Photo Challenge #418 a photo prompt by https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/. It is amazing what the eye will see, or not see.

Sarah rubbed at her temples, her headache getting slowly worse.

Merlin, her German Shephard, allowed her some safety, but everything felt strange. Not just because her world was slowly getting smaller. The peripheral sight getting blurred at the edges.

Now, they were smudged in such a way it felt like someone had splatted blank paint on a colourful canvas. She waited at the alleyway, and closed her eyes. What would it be like to be totally blind? Did she even care about what happened after she found out the person responsible for his death?

A tinge of guilt blocked out the darkness – Merlin was grieving too, but his sole aim was to give her hope. He woke her up in the morning, nudged her out of the way when she was about to bump into something.

It was as if he knew he world was going dark.

‘It’s okay Merlin,’ Sarah said, taking a step.

She was here, in this alley, to meet with Georgie, her cover at the local newspaper finally meeting the man, who up until now seemed not to be real.
