The Apartment #89

by

Rick turned. Slowly. Afraid of what he might see.
Timmy stood behind him.
"Daddy!" Timmy giggled, "Look! I'm on fire!"
As Rick turned the stench of burning flesh plagued his nose and mouth. Black smoke swirled before his eyes until black was everything.
He moved his head wildly..
"Daddy! I'm burning!"
Waved his hands in front of his eyes.
Blackness.
Rick's hands shot to his eyes. Touched his eyeballs, not his eyelids.
And with ferocious and overwhelming fear he collapsed to his knees.
"Oh dear God! Dear God! I'm blinded."
And in unison they both screamed
"I'm blinded!"
"I'm burning!"
