The Last Drag




One last drag, she thought as she frantically searched for her pack of smokes before the nurse came back. Finding it, she held the stick between her parched lips, lusting for the impending drag, and flicked the switch on the lighter. Only then did she remember the oxygen tube under her nose.

One last drag.




P.S. So starting today, I'm indulging on a 55-Marathon. A 55-fiction a day. They're addictive and fun to write. So bear with me! ;)
