A Voice For A Hero (III)

Another interview followed, this time set up carefully. This time he knew the opportunity. But again, the combination of his recollections of the robbery and the eyes of the entire town focused through the camera’s lens produced a strange effect. He babbled, hardly coherent, much like a child at show-and-tell.

His carefully written piece lay forgotten on his lap until the interview had cut to a commercial break. In his mind he heard headlines: “Local hero still unsure what happened”; “Agog over robbery”; “Hero hardly heroic”.

He had expected to create his voice, and instead it was created for him.
