Seeing Red

Brennan sees red.

Carmine, scarlet, crimson, and ruby pour from spider-cracked windows, splatter across rows of Angela’s pristine stretched canvases, paint the strong mouth that traversed the territory of hers only once -- because of a prodigal father's holiday wish and an eccentric woman's whimsy -- but arrested her breath so many times she ceased keeping count ten thousand inhalations ago.

Dawn's light marches her to wakefulness -- and the crushing knowledge that her stomach (her gut, he would have said) -- telegraphs eons before her conscious mind catches up.

Seconds, minutes, twenty lifetimes later, she kneels and retches into the toilet's mandalic waters.
