The Writer’s Block #2 – Handle With Care

Again from thinkwritten and 365 Creative Writing Prompts.

#60: Handle With Care: Write about a very fragile or delicate object.

I’m doomed.

I’m shaking so bad, I can feel it in every last joint as I step carefully over any crack in the street.

I am carrying the end of the world in my hands. 

One wrong move and it’s over. 

Why did they choose me?

Is this Karma coming back to bite me like the bitch that it is?

Did I wrong someone in a past life?

But as I walk further toward my eventual destination, I realize something. 

I’m not doing this for myself.

I was entrusted with a task, and I must succeed.

An entire world is depending on me. 

Ten more steps. 

Now five. 

Is it wrong that I’m scared?

Is it normal to have all of my best memories flash before my eyes?

I swallow the lump in my throat and take a deep breath, the deepest of my life.

And start diffusing the bomb.
