Drabble for the fic_promptly comm at DW. Prompt was author’s fandom/character choice, and the phrase: “Learning something new everyday.”
There was always something new every day to amaze and disgust.
Twenty years on the force, and someone always found a new way to slaughter another human being. She sometimes worried that one day she’d eventually become jaded by the horror of murder, but that was made moot when the latest homicide victim rolled in… turned to mush and with a strange minty scent amid the pulpified remains.
But then she goes home to her daughter, and she learns again that, though there’s a lot of craziness in the world, there’s promise too.
Because her daughter finds something new every day to amaze and rejoice.
