Generally, I find it tough to write with prompts that involved actual people or their faces, that’s why I tend to keep it vague and mysterious when I write a character, especially for a short tale where I can’t include a back story.

I think this is probably the toughest prompt I’ve taken part on for the TLT series. I hope it stays up to the mark!

Eyes screwed tight to conceal the flashing green irises, mission clear in his mind, voice trembling to induce pity, came his quiet reply, “I don’t know”
