The Apartment #83

by

The door hammered shut behind them, as they fell to the floor. Immediately, an icy wind rose from below and whistled through them. Within seconds, the sweat on their faces stopped dripping; they shivered, huddled together. Sweat droplets on their clothes turned to ice. Their skin prickled as sweat solidified, cold and agonising. DeStiy's lips became blue, Tisha passed out, bumping her face sickeningly on the ground. A white hoar formed on the floor and walls. Breathing became painful.

Rick was the first to hear the cry from behind Ryland's closed apartment door.
Muffled at first. Then:
"Daddy! I'm burning!"

    You know I do- be more newsworthy if you wrote something that didn't delight me. Hope you well. Have you disappeared from Twitter btw? X

    Haha thanks Lisa. Yes, I've ceased to exist there for a while - I starting spending too much time reading other people's tweets and not even tweeting myself, so I thought I'd take a break. May go back on in future, but atm I'm using that time to write more (in theory, anyway...) :)
