The Artist by P.S. Joshi
Brandon let himself into his aunt’s house with his key. He was an artist and his studio was in her attic. “Hi Aunt Nora,” he said as he passed her in the hall.
She smiled. “Hello there Brandon.”
He felt great today and took the stairs two-at-a-time.
The doorbell rang. Two men stood outside flashing police badges. Nora said, “Come inside,” and showed them to the living room.
“Have a seat, ma’am,” one said, showing her a drawing. “Do you know this man?”
She nodded. “That’s Brandon, my nephew. He’s upstairs.”
“Ma’am,” he whispered, “Brandon died yesterday. Hit and run.”
