All I Know

Kimberly/Al. PG. 100 words. Alternative timeline.
A man with yellow, hungry eyes.

That smell licked at the edges of his memory. It teased him, played a game of hide-and-seek like it knew he couldn’t remember. The man watched him, eyes cast in dark shadows. Yellow, he thought. A man with yellow, hungry eyes.

“I know you,” he said, as if saying it aloud would lift the fog from his mind.

The man smiled, leaned into the light. Greedy eyes met his, glittering purple one moment, soulless black the next. He sucked in a breath and drew back, tilted his head away from the tattooed hand that reached for him.

“You know me.”
