SKI VACATION

IT’S TIME FOR THE CUE OF THE WEEK FOR SIX SENTENCE STORIES!                           AND THE CUE IS CONTENT

SKI VACATION

 Maxwell and Sherry approached the ski lift and quickly got on.

The seat had gotten covered with snow so the ski operator asked if they wanted to change seats, but both Maxwell and Sherry told him they were quite content to just stay where they were.

The wind had increased and the visibility had also gotten worse as the snow began to fall faster.

When they were almost at the top of the mountain they heard a loud cracking sound and the seat they sat in broke loose, causing it to dangle to one side.

They quickly held on to each other tightly as they braced themselves with their feet, but slipped from the seat, fell out and landed on the side of the mountain just a few feet from the top of the mountain.

Both of them broke a leg and spent the rest of their ski vacation, feeling quite content just sitting in the lodge by the fireplace as they chatted with the other guests.

  1. w..w..what?!?!

    * for writing a story that drew me in, and then, like that fricken ski life seat, breaks (changes direction suddenly) and left me smile…. (thinking, ‘can’t wait to get to Comments’)

    nice work!

  2. I’ve been on those ski lifts and the big fear is falling when it’s time to get off at the top. They didn’t even make it up there! The action happened so quickly and boom! A real story in six sentences, happy ending and all.

  3. This sounds like one of those life adventures that wasn’t much fun as it happened, but turned out to be the stuff of memories that would be told over and over in the years to come. I loved that they still made the best of their vacation time. As for me, I would prefer the comforts of hot chocolate and the fire to flinging myself down a snowy mountain where most certainly I would collide with trees! :-))

  4. Ha! Ha! I don’t blame you for wanting stay off the slopes! Watching others ski down while you sit with hot chocolate by a cozy fire would be very appealing! Thank you for reading and commenting. 🙂

  5. I probably wouldn’t have either….
    They were probably so relieved just to have lived to tell about it! A broken leg isn’t too bad considering what could have happened. When they get over the shock….the word lawyer comes to mind. 🙂
