Drabble: Casualty


“Come on, one more shot of whatever that was.”

“Considering your body mass and metabolic activity, another dose at this time could cause long-term damage to your renal and hepatic systems.”

“Do I look like I have a long term, you freaking tub?” I raise a radiation-burned arm in emphasis, leaving half the skin stuck to the bedding. I let out a small scream.

“My programming requires I do whatever is necessary to ensure my pasengers’ survival,” intones the lifeboat.

“Did you see how close I was to that meltdown? I’m not a survivor.”

The boat is silent.
