Flash in the Pan

The sounds of the operating theatre were energizing. She liked the feel of its pulse.

It all seemed routine, no snags in sight. Suddenly, alarms sounded. Crash. She grabbed the vent and opened the O2 fully. Shouting questions flew in genuine panic. The next eighteen minutes were hellish.

Three hours later, the silence was deafening. She straightened the pages she’d added to the chart.

As she walked away, she patted the syringe in her pocket and grinned. Now, there were eight – one in each blood type.


Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

December’s upper limit is 100 words. This flash comes in at 86. The word for this week isย type.ย This is the last of this series.

If you are playing along for Flash in the Pan, or would like to join for the first time, visit the Flash in the Pan page to learn how to be a part of the second edition of FTP. Deadline for all entries for this edition is tomorrow. If you have already submitted, please check your links on the FTP page.

Happy Flashing!


How creepy is the sinister nurse? Will she be able to cover her tracks? Is the fact she has successfully covered seven before today scarier than today’s flash?

Do you have all your flashes and about me sent?

Happy New Year!
