Flash! Friday #22

Here we are again for another Flash Friday from Rebekah Postupak. This week we are at 150 words, give or take five, based on this rather gorgeous picture. For more tales, please visit xx  

The Ride

Jacob grasped his younger brother’s hand. It had taken four gruelling days with little sleep and even less food. With every trudging step, Jacob’s faith remained firm; belief in a fairy tale that was mocked by everyone. Belief led them to this spot and they waited.  

Silence was their only companion.  A fine mist rose from the calm sea, meeting the candy floss clouds as the heat became intense, forming blisters on Jacob’s uncovered hands.

“What do you see Charlie?” Jacob asked.

“Waves, like horses.”

“Me too. Remember the story I told you?” Charlie nodded. “Are you ready to take a ride?” Again
Charlie nodded but he squeezed tighter.  In unison, they leapt from the cliff edge, meeting the horses in a salty foaming frenzy that threatened to suck them down to the depths.

Within moments, they were grinning; souring high on the back of the winged horse from Jacob’s fairy tale, to salvation.
