Saturday Centus – Wk#150 – Prompt: Code Red! – 102 words – “Fear”

13 Mar

There are the good times and there are the bad. We all have joys in our lives and times we’d rather forget.

It’s my time on duty. I’m ready, alert for any sound or smell warning of danger.

The moment comes and my mind screams, “Code Red!

I quickly put on my protective clothing. The rubber gloves come next. Finally, I slip my gas mask over my face. I am ready!

I approach the source of the problem, my mind suppressing my fear of what’s to come. As efficiently as a first attempt can be, I change my new baby’s dirty diaper.
