OneWord - Alert

OneWord allows you 60 seconds to write about one word.
And that is “alert.”

Buzzers and klaxons announce the pressurized door’s eventual opening. There wasn’t going to be time, he could see that now. Even as the toxin began to work on his never endings, sending them into a spasm of continuous pain. There was no way to warn the world, the alert wouldn’t be sent: This virus was the mother of them all.
And it’s escaped.
