The Snow Queen

‘Quickly team!... we’re losing her’.

When they heard this from Sarah the Snow Queen they knew she was as good as gone. She was as cool in her operating theatre as she was in her private life. She was a renowned and formidable commander of the trauma team trying to save this child’s life.

‘Only local anaesthetics, I need her alert.’

‘X-Rays now! Estimate blood loss’

‘Impossible but critical, Doctor Sarah!’

‘Cardiac arrest imminent, Doctor Sarah!’

And as her short life seeped into the white sterile pad the child mouthed,

‘Sorry I spilled daddy’s beer.’

And the Snow Queen melted.
