Today my daughter and I woke up sick. I am not sure if we are suffering from a cold or allergies, but it has been a long day here at my house. However, this cold vs. allergies did give me an idea on what to write for my flash fiction piece.
The May 28, 2014 challenge from Carrot Ranch Communications was to: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a decision between two clashing priorities.
I stared at the cabinet pondering my decision. Do I grab the white box or the blue bottle?
Neither was desirable but what choice did have? I couldn’t take the pain much longer. I was in hell.
One of the two options that sat there staring back at me would ease my pain. Even possibly end it.
They taunted me.
I needed to pick one. The pills or liquid. I grabbed them both, one in each hand, like this would somehow help me.
A sneeze escaped sending me into a coughing frenzy.
Maybe I would just take them both.
Till next time,
