“Nikki, have you been in The Shard yet?”  Kristin asked.

“No, I’ve been too busy.”

“Do you want to go this afternoon?”

“Alright, and maybe we can eat lunch there.”

Just as the elevator doors closed, Nikki regretted agreeing to go.  She wasn’t too fond of elevators.

After the elevator rose several floors it stopped.

“Why did it stop?  The doors  aren’t opening, ” Nikki said.

The elevator shook and Nikki quickly grabbed the elevator phone to call for help, but the phone was not working.

“Use your cell phone Nikki, I left mine in the car,” Kristin said.

“So did I!” Nikki screamed.

The elevator began to jerk, rose up a few floors then came back down.  It continued to go up and down, however, it rose higher each time then, came right back down.

Nikki and Kristin held on the railing, screamed, cried, and frantically pushed the alarm button, stop button, and door open button.

Once again, the elevator rose, but it rose up twenty floors before coming to a stop.  Then, the doors suddenly opened and Nikki and Kristin raced out.

They looked at each other and said, in unison, “where’s the stairs?”

  1. I think that would be a terrifying experience in such a tall building. It was funny at the end when they asked where the stairs were. Great piece Jessie.,


  2. Thank you for reading and commenting. I use to have nightmares about being in one and it suddenly dropped to the bottom floor. It must have related to something going on in my life, but I never figured out what it was.
