VisDare 62: Opportunity

Sure she was going to die, she held her breath as the gondola on the carnival ride swung out of control, almost hitting the supports behind her. Her knuckles whitened as she clenched her hands tighter. Her heart raced in sync with the screams of the crowd.

The crowd fell silent and she saw all hands pointed upward. Looking around wildly, she was astonished to see the ride attendant swiftly climbing the rigging and before she could react, he leapt into the basket with her.

He smiled, bent down and said, "Hello, my name is Adam and I'll be your server today."

She laughed and as the momentum of the gondola slowed from their combined weight he leaned in and stole a kiss.

    1. I found it hard to turn it any other way, glad you enjoyed it.

  2. Such a sweet take on the prompt! Love this. And it's GREAT to see you back in the flash fiction circuit!!
