The Disease

There is a new disease spreading in our village, and we only had one doctor. Everyone had the symptoms; coughing and sneezing. The one hopeless doctor couldn't find a cure, and he got the disease shortly after. Our family isolated ourselves from any contact people, and we somehow we're healthy. But we were running low on food supplies and had to go outside after a week of staying home to go shopping. My father went outside, but he came back with nothing, and he said they were all closed. Although it was a Saturday, nothing was open, I thought quietly. We were hopeless.

  1. Hi Ivy,

    What a fabulous way to respond to the prompt this week! Were you inspired by the Coronavirus outbreak? There is a little village close to where my family are from called Eyam which was very famous during the Plague for bravery. I do hope your family are ok in your story.

    Keep up the great writing.
