The Blind Mortician by Pamela King

At our last Writers’ Group meeting we had an exercise in character development. We randomly drew a name, occupation and physical feature. My random draws were James, a mortician and blind. We were then given a few minutes to write a 50-100 word story about our character. 

Here is my little story:

James felt his way to the back room of the funeral parlour. Although his handicap would prove difficult for most, his dedication to his calling helped him overcome the loss of his eyesight. He knew every inch of the place.

He was proud of his skills and content with his lot in life.

That was until today. As he bent over the coffin to prepare his client, a voice boomed, “What am I doing in here? I asked for rosewood not oak!”
