So it's day nine and I'm having a bad day. Today I'll not only be doing the challenge but trying not to allow my day to influence my writing - keep a look out just incase!
Write a description of a busy scene from the perspective of a deaf man.
In the same thread as Day Eight, deaf men experience the world through only FOUR SENSES. This time around, practice describing a scene while using only touch, taste, sight, and smell. Make the reader hear the noise of a scene without the sounds ever being described.
Stoking the labrador on the head he looked down admiring his helpful companion. It had only been three years since he lost his hearing but he could not of asked for a better guide. The dog gently pushed the back of his knee and upon looking up he could see the green man now illuminated giving him permission to walk across the road.
The enjoyment it gave him to have his four legged companion was nothing short to the relief he felt last year when Caspar saved his life from the fire that started in his kitchen. He had fallen asleep after putting some food on the hob and it had spitted causing the hob to set on fire. Caspar had heard and smelt the coming danger and woke him up as smoke filled the room from under the door to the kitchen. The dog has saved his life and he would never forget it.
This was one of the reasons he sometimes went to meetings. Allowing his guide dog to have an hour a week as a normal animal would was something that had made their bond with each other stronger. He also new he was safe within the walls of the hall they met at while having coffee with the other deaf dog owners also entailed some funny sign conversations.
End of scene
I wanted to keep this one short as I wasn't feeling it but you know I kinda like what I wrote.
