I once read a short passage in school (between 2001 & 2003) from a book in a dutch teaching book. Probably a book translated from English. I always wondered what book that was.
A family at home was having a discussion because they had little oxygen left and the new delivery was not due soon. The father was getting angry, wanted to slam his fist on the table but calmed himself down to save the oxygen.
Some moments later something happened; a window broke and the living room was filled with the toxic gasses from outside. The father felt the pain in his lungs.
