Summary: Sara longs for a lack of colour in her life.

Response to the csi100 challenge She dreams in black and white...


Her day is full of vivid colours - the vibrant reds of fresh blood spatter, the purple of livid decay. The rich, raw flashes of violet violence written large on the twisted faces of those confronted with the cool, subdued hues of the science she practices.

Even in the lab she's not safe. Tests that come out deep blue for gun shot residue, purple for cocaine. Tests that stain pure white cotton swabs bright pink for blood traces. She's surrounded by swirling, dizzying rainbow shades, a riotous carnival of colours.

She dreams in black and white, and for that she's thankful.

The End
