THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 358

Rise

Smoke and heat shrank my lungs,
sucked strength from my body,
and spun my head until I became dizzy.
Then I remembered something
from science class
in eighth grade.
Heat and smoke rise.
I got on the floor,
squinting through the smoke
to see if I could find a way out,
and bumped into something.
Lindsey looked at me
from the ground
through hazy darkness.
She opened her mouth to speak,
but she coughed so hard
her entire body shook.
I found her wrist
and struggled to pull her up,
but we were weak
from smoke and heat.
