“Mayday, mayday! Engines have failed!”

Business trip turned into death bed. Panic consumed the cabin, a mix of tears and screams.

My heart dropped as I clutched my phone.The plane descended quickly as I dialed.

It went to voicemail and I said “I love you,” one last time.

The piece is a 50 word story that I was inspired to write after seeing a picture of a plane crash.
