And now my 100 word story:
The phone startled him. It was three am but the sound of his ex-wife’s voice made him sit straight up.
“It’s Bobby. They had to give him Narcan. He’s in the ICU”.
Tim was completely awake now.
He knew what this meant. The four-month stint in rehab 6 months ago had failed. Bobby had relapsed; once again.
“He has to live with you”.
“I can’t do this”.
Tim heard the pain in the voice of the mother of his child.
He wanted to save them both.
Holding the phone tight in his hand Tim stepped into his trousers, one leg at a time.
“I’ll be there by noon” he promised.
