Here is this week’s photo prompt. I’m glad it will continue as Susan is taking over the reins for this challenge next month. Thank you!
As expected with any new attraction, the cars were full and swung high above the valley taking in the most spectacular views of the landscape amid excited chatter and exclamations of wonder.
Then all that changed.
The noise was deafening, and several stood up in the hope to find escape from the pods containing them, though to exit meant certain death due to the depth of the ravine below.
Children were crying, women were screaming, and the men were trying to keep it all together for the sake of their families.
The Beasts were coming towards them at full pelt, delirious at the thought of human meat conveniently canned before them.
The occupants realised the situation was hopeless, and consoled themselves with the thought that at least they would all die together.
Most families sat on the floor, holding hands or embracing each other in group hugs as they waited for the inevitable.
It never came.
The projectors were turned off and the pods continued to move towards their docking station.
The trembling and terrified were escorted to waiting medical teams.
It was doubtful the latest ride at the theme park would be continued after this.
