It was a dreadful sight. The shape of the human form with an appearance that few had seen outside a mortuary or during their medical studies. It glistened all over, like a voodoo doll crafted of whitish-yellow fat and mapped with lots of tiny bright red rivers. But it stood, motionless, at the edge of the stadium.

An athletic shirt, clinging loosely to a pile of transparent material laying crumpled on the ground gave the clue. The number on the shirt confirmed the creature’s identity.

What frightened the Olympic pole vault champion? He’d jumped right out of his skin.

    Thanks Michelle and D.M. I did have a chuckle. The biggest challenge was to imagine a skin-free body as I am a touch squeamish!
