Geoff could hear noises about him, it was claustrophobic in the panic room – he had no option to do anything else – but escape to safety.
He had the room installed several years ago. He had never felt safe. Always scared of burglars, thieves and robbers. Sitting here now, clammy, sweating, scared, he was not sure what was worse. He supposed, if it was a burglar – at least his death would have found him fast. “Not like in here.”, he said to himself.
He was gasping to breath. They must have turned off the oxygen supply to the room, he thought. “How much was left – an hour or two ?” He nervously considered this point.
Slowly suffocating in his private sarcophagus, he wondered to himself, “Would the Police arrive in time ?”
Panic Room– 5 Minute Story – Inspiration
The word given for this story was “claustrophobic”, and what came to mind were the dramatic figurative works from artist Peter Howson.
