"Hang on, folks, I'm coming!" shouted Roger to the two individuals trapped at the edge of the Sky Disc wrenched suddenly from its moorings.
Sweat poured from his forehead as he ascended the hastily extended wobbly ladder. Roger looked down at his wife Cynthia and eight year old son Timothy behind him. Why did they have to insist on making the perilous climb as well?
Why couldn't he stop them?!
Roger saw there were four feet separating the ladder from the Sky Disc's edge and he'd have to jump. A miss would send him hurtling to his death. Even if he could somehow make it, how could Cynthia and Timothy ever hope to survive?
But jump all three of them must if there were to be any chance of "saving" the two dangling droids!
Though a bit controversial, Disney World's new Circle Tower of Death was proving to be a big hit.
It's my pleasure to send you on a special trip to Disney World on this Fourth of July, and I hope you'll pardon the extra 52 words I've asked you to take along on your journey.
Your unplanned vacation is courtesy of my weekly entry in the Fabulous Friday Fictioneers based on the picture prompt above. Join the other Fictioneers in Going to Disney World! by clicking on the Happiest Place on Earth and, of course, by parting with most of your money as you click.
Happy Fourth of July! And don't forget to ride Splash Mountain!
