Flashing Red

Stepping out of fire truck, we find a young girl is trapped in a twisted car wreck. We work hard to get her out as her condition deteriorates. I help to put a saline drip into her cold pale arm. Suddenly from nowhere a father's voice comes from behind me. . .

"Don't you leave me, you stay strong!"

the only light
in her eyes
flashes red
