The curved soul
She said it was the soul that left the body first – before everything started crumbling but Eric thought her soul had left years ago. It was the crooked curve of her right eyebrow that gave her that fixed expression; suspicion of everything, everyone. He’d see it in the reflection of the television, through the dappled windows on a rainy day. It followed him to work – everything had curves when you looked close enough; like buying a new car, suddenly everyone’s got one. Except no-one had someone like Mabel. There’s no-one to be suspicious anymore so it’s something he feels he should do, just for her; keep himself safe until it’s his turn to crumble, for his soul to find hers.
