Open Letter to a Fallen Hero (114 words)
I wonder sometimes if it would have been difficult for you to say you were innocent. If you knew it was a lie and that’s why the words never even occurred to you. If you hid behind your fame, knowing that no matter what you did, it wouldn’t have made a difference in the grand scheme of things, because it didn’t. If it galvanized you to be better at your job because you couldn’t be a better human being. If you knew that I cursed every time your name was mentioned and could no longer bear to look at you. If you knew that you had lost me (and others like me) for good.

Thanks! It's funny because I was actually thinking about writing this before I even saw the prompt- my brain went from "distrust" to "disgust" quite easily.

Stopped & restarted it quite a bit though as the first few were a bit too angry & profanity-laden.

not like the other excerpts...but it fit what I'm working on so:

But he hated hospitals. They churned his stomach so that he could not eat, with their smells of antiseptic and old blood, used bed-pans and cleaning chemicals. Hospitals left a bitter taste in his mouth, made his skin crawl, tightened around his throat like choking hands, made him long for a mask and gloves to avoid the sickness and death people left behind. His skin crawled around the grieving, the wailing, the desperation.

In the outside world, those things did not bother him. Surrounded by the hospital hum of fluorescent tubes and beeping machinery, voices calling out in secret codes for the aid of others…all of those things spoke of only one thing.
