via Daily Prompt: Symptom

There is this calm before the storm, which is actually a warning – the winds before a cyclone or hurricane – the rumble before a volcanic eruption – the thunder and lightning before the actual downpour. Nature has a way of warning us that trouble is on it’s way and that we should be prepared for it – either to avoid it or face it – it is our choice.

We have these signs in our daily life too – the niggling cough before a cold, the fever before any major illness outbreak, our instinctive fear in a relationship about to shatter, the general unease before a public brawl.What are all these, if not symptoms?
