Killer Carnival: Friday Fictioneers 100 Word Story Challenge

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by Rochelle Fields where writers around the world create 100 word stories inspired by the one image.

I had never been a fan of carnival rides, they always felt dodgy.
We were flying, spinning around three stories above the ground. I could hear the metal creaking and groaning.

Then it happened.

I heard a growling grinding noise, then a metallic ping.
Next thing I knew I was plummeting towards the ground.
I thought about how devastated my mum would be, how happy my step-sister would be. I thought about my old dog, Gumby.

Then suddenly I wasn’t falling anymore. I was flying upwards with two big strong arms cradling me.
That was the day I met Superman.

  1. I LOVE this Sarah! So few words and I was still immersed thinking oh shit, she’s done for. I loved how you’ve used ‘dodgy’, keeping that bit of Aussie slang in there ❤ Thanks so much for sharing Sarah, would love to see this as a regular feature ❤
