Fumes

The roof of the house sagged and was covered in moss. In the overgrown yard, plastic and rusty trash were scattered through the weeds.

A man emerged through a screen door that opened on one hinge, leaving it hanging askew. He had a patchy beard, hair scraggled towards his eyes, and a few yellow and brown teeth.

Inside the house, a container had fallen over and was leaking acid dyed pink with food coloring into the brown shag carpet. Sharp fumes from large plastic tanks began to fill the place, working their slow way out of the wooden window frames.
