Beauty–and ugliness–are in the eye of the beholder. A food that makes one person’s mouth water, makes another person gag. The music I love, my husband hates.
But it goes deeper than that. Something that brings up beautiful, selfless, or joyful emotions in one person can bring out cowardly, dark, disgusting emotions in another. The child walking alone down a deserted road that one person wants to protect, another wants to victimize. It’s all in your point of view.
Today’s Prompt: Choose something–it can be an item, a situation, anything–and show it from the point of view of two people who see it in two opposite ways. If you want a real challenge, choose a seemingly neutral item/situation and show us why each of your POV characters reacts so differently to it.
