Writing Prompt – Attack Scene

Six Months Old!

Nightly Prompt

Low battery. Exactly the two words I didn’t want to see right now.  “Shit,” I mutter, tossing the useless device back in my backpack.

Motherhood Hiccup

With a future of uncertainty, I somehow find the will to face my fears. But who will wipe my worried tears?
