In response to prompt : Profuse
Few years ago I tried to open a beef can which had a key attached to open it. As I was turning it broke, I could only open half of the lid. Without thinking I tried to pull it with my thumb, it made a deep gash on my thumb, which caused profuse bleeding, I could not stop it with tissues.
In the beginning I thought of not telling my husband, who I knew would be upset with me. When the bleeding didn’t stop, I told my husband when he came home. He removed the bunch of tissues and said, ‘The wound is too deep, I’ll have to stitch it in the hospital.’
Before this I didn’t know how painful stitching a wound is. I went to the hospital , I told my husband, ‘get someone else to stitch it.’
Even though my husband was an eye surgeon.
He took me to another doctor to do the job. While stitching he asked my husband, ‘Why didn’t you stitch it?’
He said, ‘my wife is afraid!’

The clear sky tempted Pamela to go for a walk, it has been a long time since she got out of the house. The sun was shining brightly, the grass looked its original color and children skipping with amusement reminded her of her childhood.
Walking along a deserted path she met Sangita, her friend from school, they were delighted to see each other. All at once Sangita asked Pam if she’d be interested to come to their ‘Holi Party.’ Pam wasn’t sure it was such a great idea, she was wearing her attractive indigo dress, she did not want it to be smothered by multi- colors. Pam tried to excuse herself but Sangita refused to take ‘No’ for an answer. Reluctantly she agreed hoping her dress wouldn’t be ruined.
While walking along Pam tripped up fell down and scraped her knee, it was bleeding, she panicked and excused herself and ran home.
Mom was waiting for her with a bunch of Marigolds given by their neighbor, Pam got some band-aid to put on her knee and sat down with her mother. They chatted for a while mom went to check her roast, Pam took a magazine to read, it was all about Kate, Prince William’s wife. Pam loved Kate’s dress it was a beautiful violet, she looked extremely pretty in it.
Pam made up her mind to get an orange dress for herself to celebrate Spring!
