Friday Prompt

Exhausted and inspired by a week of computer troubles, I bring you today’s prompt:

Write something involving a deadly virus.

And some after thoughts:

  • It could be a computer virus that wipes out computers… or takes control of someone’s life support systems.
  • It could be a physical plague, something completely ordinary…

  • Maybe it’s a magic plague.

I’ve also had plague on the brain due to editing Moonshadow’s Guardian, and I’d like to share a couple sentences from the first time my main character sees the Queen and her son, who’s suffering from a telepathic plague:

The boy on her arm had the look of a Vonstone, but not much strength to him. Red hand marks ringed his neck. His eyes were sunken and tired, fixated on Rolf’s beautiful fur.

Please share your favourite sentence (or two) in the comments below.
