WOW: Flat - A short homage to one of my favourite episodes; Sam's world is crashing down around him.
Disclaimer: Don't own them, they wouldn't like it much if I did.
The end of Sam's world came to the sound of a high-pitched haunting whine;
To shouting voices, barked orders, the sounds of panic and urgency;
To a flat line snaking across a screen;
To a flurry of activity;
To tiny receptors taped to a muscular, honey gold chest; unmoving, eerily still;
To a strong spine arching violently beneath the doctor's paddles;
To the sound of desperate prayers, Sam's prayers;
Suddenly, a beep;
A gentle rise of the chest;
A sob of relief;
The answer to a prayer.
The end of Sam's world could wait a little longer.
