Micro-fiction as I understand it can be no more than 100 words long. This piece is 61 words. My thanks go to @cidwrites for today’s prompt.

The Cure

They said it couldn’t be done. They didn’t know jack.

Not only did I infiltrate section thirteen, I took down the entire bloody installation, one filthy scientist at a time. Twenty minutes. That’s all it took, till I was the only one breathing the stale, antiseptic air.

But I failed. Turns out, there is no cure. There never was a cure.
