100 word challenge-As I read the contents of was aware of my smile

We all knew it was coming. The virus was spreading worldwide. And know our only hope was us. As of each month on the 15th would our stomachs drop. I only dread of opening that letter for each year. I could see they all had the same fear consuming them. That morning tall men in suits escorted every kid down to some sort of center. As I sat down next to Anabelle her face wasn’t scared but concerned. I could see she knew something that no one else did.  Every year at 2.45 we’d get the letter and as I read the contents I was aware of my smile.

100 word challenge- Flame…Ice…Lime…Regularly…Clock

Suddenly I woke, my eyes frantically approaching my surroundings. The room was ice cold, chills flew around me. The only thing I could see was a small light hanging from the roof second by second the light weakening into the darkness before me. Except for a Lime green exit sign on the side of the door. The only thing I could remember was when I was in my room staring constantly at the clock as the ticking suddenly drove me to insanity well as it did regularly. As I heard screams racing through the house and suddenly that wasn’t my problem the blazing flames coming through the door were.

It my special spot away from everybody else I loved the silence away from everyone it was magical. It was a haven of safety to the outside world. There was nowhere safe, guards patrolling the streets and hunting the fugitives down for good. I was one of them, my family gone and my house all I had was a scrunched up photo in my bag. All I could remember was hearing gunshots and seeing a house explode before me. My mum screaming as my dad racing for her. My sister hiding under the table the last I knew was her staring into my eyes tears of dread dripping down her face. This door was my only hope.
