Flame

I am getting in quick this week as I’m off to hospital tomorrow and will probably be quite demented for a few days following the anaesthetic!  Anyway, the prompt was “The flame flickered before……”

I love this game!

The flame flickered before it went out. This was bad news. No more matches and it was pitch black. What to do? Without the flame I couldn’t find anything. Without a match I couldn’t light the flame. Hours until dawn. Still, dark and silent. In that noisy way silence has when it is dark. I didn’t even have a torch.

Not that it would have made much difference if I did have a torch. No electricity. No electricity means no internet.

EEK!! Can you imagine life without the internet? I can’t.

Goodness me!

No 100 word challenge for one thing!!!

    • Thank you, having just been in hospital for a week, I was eternally grateful for modern technology to keep me in touch with the outside world!!! 😀

  1. You just summed up my life living in India now. Powercuts were something to get used to. We’re soooo dependent on that electricity, aren’t we? And no internet???? I’d die.
