Friday Fictioneer: The Ride

The Ride

To a normal human eye, it was a trick of the eye and was passed off as:

“It was an especially hot day.”

“There was something in my eye.”

“It was my child’s imagination.”

It was . . . It was . . . It was . . .

In actuality, it was no trick. For only one special ride a week, at the height of the whirling, all customers disappeared for less than half a second. The customers  reappeared into the fantasy world of their choice for an unbelievable week’s vacation, then returned as if they’d never left.

The End
