FFfAW: Blind Truth

“I’m telling you, Dr. Harriet Glass isn’t who she says she is!”

“You’re obsessed,” Caleb hissed back.

“Then why was she looking in my purse when I came back into the exam room?”

“Maybe she accidentally dropped something!”

Suddenly letting out a shrill scream, I stumbled into Caleb.

A mannequin head stared back at me, a pair of stylish frames on its blank face. Did Dr. Glass wear contacts? She always wore these exact frames that were before me now.

Then I remembered. At the beginning of our appointment, Dr. Glass had been blinking rapidly, and then she had laughed sheepishly.

“New Year, new me. Contacts.”

I remembered her one eye closed when I reentered the room and found her looking in my purse.

I slapped a hand to my forehead.

“Contacts. She lost a contact. Abort mission.”
