Prompt for March

The Ides of March, March 15th on the Roman calendar, was marked by several religious observances, along with the death of Caesar..

However, it was also notable for Romans as a DEADLINE to settle DEBTS. 

What Debts or Deadlines do we have for ourselves and others?  

Debts of gratitude? Debts to society? Debts to nature?.  

Waiting for a deadline to pass? Dead line on the phone, and why? Deadlines for action before we change course? The military term, deadline? 

Let your imagination expand and write a 500 word story using an element of this prompt.
