Drabble: Scarf by Samantha Lienhard

by specklit

Snow whirled around me. My teeth chattered, and I broke into a run. Stupid weather.

I slipped and crashed onto the ice. As I got to my knees, I noticed a splotch of red. A scarf. I dusted it free of snow. It was damp, but I was desperate. I wrapped it around my neck and resumed walking.

It pressed too tight against my neck. I loosened the scarf.

Still too tight.

I fumbled at the knot with numb fingers and struggled for breath. My vision was hazy. I had to get it off. Had to…
Darkness swept over me.
