100 Word Story: Swirled

“Have you looked at the back of your head?”

“No. Is there something wrong?”

“Your hair is very short and it kind of goes in a circle.”

She reached up to feel the back of her head. The hair was very short and seemed to sprout from a tiny dot at the center. It was hard to tell if it went in a circle. Might there be patterns, messages? 

“You should take a look. It’s unusual.”

She shook her head. No. Looking would mean knowing.

“I like the feel of the back of my head. It fits in my hand.”
