The Trick

 

Piano-swallow

Copyright -John Nixon

I watched from the edge of the stage as he ran through his act as if nothing had happened.  The events of the previous night, though, still filled my mind.

I am not too old for my one-piece costume.  I wear the name “Carney Girl” proudly as I perform my act.  They might call him a comedic genius, but I do OK.

He crawled into the piano as usual, but then screamed my name.  Heart pounding, I ran onto the stage.  He popped out, a huge bouquet of roses in hand, and bowed gallantly.  The crowd went wild.

Apology accepted!

          It is. You can follow the links at the bottom of my post. They are hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, who puts up a new picture every week. Since the stories are only 100 words it’s easy to read quite a few of them.
