55 Fiction: It’s a small world

It was love at first sight.

We were perfect — intellectually, emotionally, physically. We saw our future after a month together. Even my job as a sexual assault counsellor couldn’t spoil the happiness.

Until I saw the recent referral for a 7 year old abused by her father; the same man: my ‘perfect’ love.

***Linking up with Write Tribe’s Wednesday prompt***

Until next time,

        Indeed, your writing is awesome and it’s such a beautifully written story on the plague that haunt us. It can be someone close to us to indulge in crime. Big Hugs for this story.
