"This week's challenge is all about first times. Not necessarily that kind of first time. Any sort of first."
The instructions sounded so simple: Mount up, give a gentle push.
Feet lift off the ground, a whooping sound (oh, that's me!). Legs dangle, white-knuckled hands clutch. Suddenly, clouds all around! Eek! Ground's so far below!
"Come down! Come down!"
Straight at a wall! (How do you control this thing?!) Through a covered walkway! Up! Down! Up! (Ahahahah! Getmeoff! Getmeoff!) Statue ahead! Loop-de-loop! Snagged! Caught by my robe.
Oh, that's how you get off...
Suspended mid-air. Chance a glance up. Rip, rip.
Falling... caught... falling...
Landed ungracefully. Arm makes poor cushion.
Riding a broom is harder than it looks.
I was sort of nervous submitting it. I'm worried about cliches and other overdone stuff, things experienced fanfic writers would know to avoid but new-me wouldn't. It got a couple of nice comments, so that's cool. I might have to try another. (Back to vacation foo now.)
