#ICBYShortStory- Sedatives

November 25, 2018


With Daisy, my four-year-old daughter at home throwing temper tantrums, Jhonas, my husband missing and Dylan, my eighteen year old taking full day shifts, I felt like no level of aspirins would defuse my never ending migraines.

It would be impossible to cope with all this stress if it weren't for my sedatives.
Ohh... how I love them!

Today's delivery of sedatives were taking an especially long time to come. When it came I nearly fainted with relief. Opening my package I instantly indulged in the contents without a second of apprehension.

Why is everything getting so hazy? What the devil is all that noise? I have to stop it!

                                                         !Breaking news!
Mother kills four year old daughter under the influence of Methamphetamine. She has been consuming them for over four months, under the impression that they were sedatives.
I don't know why I'm behind bars...
Ma'am you have a visitor says a rough voice interrupting my train of thoughts. After a few minutes Dylan walks in, glowering at me, "I can't believe you", he says.
Then it all goes black.
Sorry it's a bit above the word limit :P
