The Bomber

===================THE BOMBER===================

Parker Twombly


It is a nice sunny day

No clouds for miles around

The warm glow of the suns rays hit my skin

I loook at my friend and he smirks

A little girl skips over to us

“Can I spin?” She asks

My friend and I say no

She climes on anyway

Suddenly the wind picks up, coldness

The eight grader starts to spin the metal, screeching

My friend tries to stop him but its too late

It picks up speed and the girl slips

Her legs fly out behind her

Her fingers turn bone white as she holds on for dear life

Four fingers

Three fingers

Two fingers left

One final jerk sends her sailing

She flies through the air

A fighter jet soaring through the air

Her eyes burn into me and I see murder

Her legs flail around right before impact

Her twisted foot lands, squishing into an old ladys face

The lady topples backward and they lay still

I look at the carnage and grin
