In Case of Emergency, E. G. Scott
Dutton - August / 2020


PROLOGUE

"This is going to end badly.

It's chaos here. They're not listening to me. I've told them that we need to stop operating, but their talking over me, drowning me out.  I know what I'm doing. I'm an integral part of this team.  Hell, I'm the smartest person in the room.

Her vitals are a mess. Her breathing is shallow and labored. Her color is all off."

I started this one and it has really drawn me in. What do you think?
