Latin translation:Quod nos terret? --- Quid! Timemus?
Explanation:
Dear Corbett,

I think it depends on what you mean.

If you meant "what worries us?" you should say:

-Quod: What
-Nos: us
-Terret: worry

Though, if you want to mean "What! We worry? We are afraid?" as an exclamation, you should put:

Quid! (Exclamation, "What?!"
Timemus? (We worry? We are afraid?!)

Hope it helps!
