Dumb, stupid and drunk, my friends and I wander through a restricted area. We stumble upon a sign saying “RADIATION CAUTION RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS”, but we took no notice of the sign. We all started laughing, but those laughs were soon turned to cries.

 At first, I begin to think it’s because of the alcohol, but it is the radiation affecting me. The buildings around me start spiraling and my throat feels like someone’s choking me without mercy. 

I then pass out right there on the spot. 

Was this luck that I live to tell the tale? 

I don’t know,  but I’m very thankful.
