100 Words: Ring Hand
I have a photographic memory. The minute details I typically see help create stories.

The small details I find by accident are often meant to be hidden; they are scars, memories.
Even I have them.

To my dismay, it has been a week or so, and all I can hope for is that everything is fine. That’s definitely one story--one person--that deserves a happy ending.
