Faceless Man

"He looks like anyone;
you and me.
He can turn into a woman, a boy,
an old man, post man.....at will!
Detectives have tried to capture him for years;
once he disappeared in their midst, looking like a cop
he had just murdered -
the cop's body had two holes punctured on his neck.
He kills whenever he feels victorious, threatened or hungry.
There's only one thing he fears most; cats. Whenever
they see him, they all run after him. You would confuse
him for a mouse.
Cats are protectors of the underworld, 
according to ancient Egyptian mythology;
they protect the underworld from agents of Seth,
the evil god, and brother to Osiris.
The faceless man, therefore, is a mummy -
luck for a better word.....
I close this case!"

Ooh I like this! At first read it reminded me of an old twilight zone episode where a man with the power to change faces ended up losing himself to the same. I feel like there's more to this story, though, which will probably be more clear after I read a bit more on the referenced Egyptian mythology. Very interesting, Teddy. Well done

Indeed, Egyptian mythologies are very rich in folklore and metaphorical/astrological interpretations... I would love to watch that series!! ;-) Thank you so much Phillip, for reading and enjoying my work!! ;-)
