GENRE: Realistic Fiction
WORD COUNT: 100
“We’re not equipped.” Turned away as a case ‘too severe’.
Equipped?! for a few days? She’d been dealing with this for d-e-c-a-d-e-s. High tech to low tech. All said no. In a moment of inspiration spotting Hospital Drive. Her passengers, without time to think, were met by Emergency Room staff.
The listless couple, further confused, the Admittance Nurse typing information.
I faced the Doctor. “Do you know the danger in transporting at this stage?”
Are you kidding me?! Simply “Yes”. “I’m not sure they understand what’s going to happen next.”
“I’m certain of it”, I said. “Sign here” I did.
Unfortunately, one can’t save Time in a bottle . People don’t ‘wait’. No secret messages here. Cats In The Cradle. If you have a family of young or old. People you care for, may I be your compass this day? Spend quality time with them NOW. ‘One Day’ it WILL be too late. It’s a long way down.
