An Important Solution

A Mastodon writing prompt story. These are science fiction short stories (usually 480 characters or less), based on an image generated by EW Doc Parris using MidJourney.

The stories are originally posted on Mastodon via my personal account.

I don’t know how long I have left. Weeks, hopefully, Days, probably. Hours. Don’t want to think about that.

I’m close. I think I have this solved. And a solution means I live. But it’s tricky. Wait, a door?

“You kids stay upstairs! DO NOT COME DOWN!”

The door slams shut. If I had time, I’d rig up a lock. But this must be solved. At all costs. If anyone else gets it, we’re cooked. Buh-bye, nice knowing you humanity.
