Tuesday Intros… The Madman’s Daughter

The Madman’s Daughter

by Megan Shepherd

The basement hallways in King’s College of Medical Research were dark, even in the daytime.

At night they were like a grave.

Rats crawled through corridors that dripped with cold perspiration.  The chill in the sunken rooms kept the specimens from rotting and numbed my own flesh, too, through the worn layers of my dress.  When I cleaned those rooms, late at night after the medical students had gone home to their warm beds, the sound of my hard-bristle brush echoed in the operating theater, down the twisting halls, into the storage spaces where they kept the things of nightmares.  Other people’s nightmares, that is.  Dead flesh and sharpened scalpels didn’t bother me.  I was my father’s daughter, after all.  My nightmares were made of darker things.
