The Psychiatrist (1 of 6: witchcraft)
The patient first accused his mother of witchcraft when he was sixteen.
At first she thought he was joking.
She ignored the growing signs of psychosis: she wasn’t trained to recognize them.
Until one night she woke to find he had soaked her bed in petrol.
“Time to burn, witch!”
This is my fifth 50 word story in my series of Humpbuckle Tales, stories set in the fictional town of humpbuckle-on-sea.
