The Beep

I could feel the cold sweat trickling down my temple. 29 years of service in anti-bomb squad and I’m nervous every time. The beeps grew faster as did my heartbeat. Being nervous, I hit it into pieces. That’s how my alarm clock broke.

  1. I feel the same way about my alarm clock, especially when it is about to ring. Good job with setting up the intensity and then knocking it back with the last line. Brilliant!

  2. “The beeps grew faster as did my heartbeat.” Like that you wove reality into the dream there. I usually wake up just after a dream makes my heartbeat quicken, so your sequence of events was spot on as well!
