A black blanket enveloped the modest annexe. The 

electricity had been switch off to avoid further

damage. People moved around under the glare of their 

cell-phone lights waiting for the engine to arrive. The 

approach road to the annexe was narrow and cause for 

concern. All the evacuees stood nervously choking from 

the smoke.

Suddenly she rushed into the dark entrance. The staff 

tried calling her name dissuading her not to commit 

hara-kiri.

The uniformed men arrived and the hose pipe came to 

life. The ladder was extended.


Nurse Catherine came out carrying a cherubic bundle

from the neo-natal ward.
