Happy Tantalizing Tuesday! If you don't know what Tantalizing Tuesday is: it's the day several of my peers and I write a 200 word teaser on a picture of our choosing. Today, I am continuing a story from my previous Friday teaser THE RESCUE. When you're finished reading my little contribution, please click the link below to read what my peers have come up with today. Don't forget to comment on each post as there are prizes to be had. I will be giving a copy of my very short story HAPPY REUNION to two people who comment on my posts next Tuesday. Enjoy!
Justin carried Claudette out into the fresh air and laid her on ground. She was unconscious. He immediately checked her vitals and was alarmed by how slow her pulse was. She wasn’t breathing either.
Justin crossed his hands over Claudette’s chest and began compressions. He pumped her chest 30 times, checked her breathing, and began to worry.
“Don’t die on me, Claudette!”
He checked her breathing again. Nothing. A tear slid down his cheek as he tilted her head back, plugged her nose, and lowered his lips onto hers. He breathed into her five times, then began the chest compressions again.
“Come on, Baby! I need you to pull through!”
Tears streaming his face, he refused to give up. He began breathing into her again after 30 more compressions.
Claudette’s body lurched and she began to cough. Justin lifted her into a seated position and rubbed her back as she finished her fit. She looked up at him and recognition showed on her face. She gave a weak smile.
“Thank you, Justin. How did you find me?”
“Don’t worry about that right now. I’m just glad you’re still alive. I’ll go get a medic.”
“No! I’m fine. Don’t leave me.”
I do hope you enjoyed my little tease. Please click the link below and click each contributor's name to read their snippets for the day. Show some love! :)
