Week 33 The disease by Colin

It had been 2 months since I’d been outside. The disease was highly contagious and very dangerous. The electricity had been cut and food was scarce. The only reason that my family was alive was that we lived in a walled city.

No one escaped and no one came in.

One night when I was walking to a well in the center of the city I saw a figure walking towards me. I took no notice and started filling my bucket. As I was walking back the person ran after me. Just then a jogger came past me and ran into the person. The deafening screams echoed through the cold night.

  1. Hi Colin,
    I enjoyed your story. I like the way you brought in your own experience of lockdown as it made it very real. Great writing.

  2. Another great story Colin – well done!
    I’m interested to know more about the screaming.
    Was it because some ran into him? Fear of getting the disease? Or was there something more sinister going on?
    Keep up the great work.
