For those who are new, Rochelle shares a photo prompt to which several #FridayFictioneers compose a 100-word flash of fiction.

Come, there’s a thrill around every turn.

Here’s my contribution:

Anywhere Carnival

Nickle got himself two corndogs and a Pepsi, then settled in for the show.

Yesterday had been a bust. All that work, slinking in during the wee hours, shimmying up the chains and fiddling with a narrow rasp file just enough so the links would be weakened but not noticeably. The links hadn’t been detected on the morning check but they had unfortunately held firm.

That meant Nickle had to go in again the following night, last night. Do a little more slinking and shimmying, and rasping.

But today was surely the day.

Nickle was certain.

“Higher. Higher,” they shouted.
