VisualDare #14 – Gutted

The workman stepped out of the dusty rooms and flipped through some pages on his clipboard. “Looks like we made pretty good progress today. Got her high school friends, her first love, and her favorite song.”

His buddy sat down on the rubble, ignoring the music that came from underneath. Anything can become mundane if you do it enough. “Yeah, this one’s pretty well cleaned out. I forget – do we leave anything in the old broad, or is this a complete demo?”

“Says here she gets to keep an old joke and the pain.”

“Well, yeah. That’s a given.”
