What have you Done
She was reminded of her child-hood her days in the park playing on the merry-go-round not a carousel with painted horses that majestically rose and fell when she pretended she was riding a ‘real’ horse, but the iron circular playground ‘swing’ she knew it by no other name holding onto the iron, her feet running fast beside it, trying to gain speed so that she may then jump upon to enjoy the ride though sometimes giddiness happened her head would feel light she even thought she would be sick this is what she felt like now the scenery around her was blurry her stomach did not feel well she wanted it to stop she wanted to get off the merry-go-round memories came flooding back a hotel room the two of them he handed her a cocktail did he doctor it and why?
I love this! Hugs xxxxxx
Why I thank you madam 🙂 xxx

Hello kz – thank you very much sweety.
Wow… you snuck that in at the end… nice. It was going along so sweetly… I even reminisced about that wheel thing in the playgrounds when I was a kid…
Ahh my evil plan worked then 🙂 Thanks Ted appreciated.
It was totally evil….I bought into the childhood memory too!
Scary! But I love the description of the merry-go-round. Took me back to my young childhood (:
I am glad Draug 🙂 Thank you.
Crafty – you set us up with dreamy memory and then hit us with gritty reality.

Hey Dianne…I am just using your blog post response to let Mumsy know that I am now communicating to her blogs via other peoples responses…hahahaha
I am lost 😦 what did I do?
I am glad 🙂 thanks chookas x
I was with you on the merry go round memory and imagined myself on one as a child…then my heart fell when I realized the meaning of the last four lines. Nice twist at the end, but scary situation!
Thank you so much Jannat …. the challenge word had to get in there somehow! 🙂
Never was a fan of merry-go-round amusements, so the ending really got me. Nice job!
Kymmin I thank you, I hated the merry- go- round as it made me feel so sick 😦
I remember those things on the playground. So scary that something from childhood is what she connects to the awful thing happening in the present.
Yes memories can be precious or horrid, thanks for visiting Bee and commenting. 🙂
hat that feeling of the world spinning – why, indeed? More to come?
Hi Barbara – I thank you 🙂 You want me to continue this?
Very clever the way you used the merry go round methphor right until the end. The end was sort of a splash of cold water. Way to go!
LD thank you, I like your wording of a splash of cold water too – excellent. 🙂
HT – I am glad – thank you 🙂
What a ride that was-I almost fell off when it swung so suddenly,& leaping away, wickedly gleeful!
lol!Great spin that was-loved it:-)
Ah thank you kind lady. I hated those round-a-bouts, made me quite queasy just writing about it! 🙂
I know-I have only ridden it once as a child-never again-not for people like us I guess-I dislike anything that goes round & round or for that matter up & down,lol!
Me to 61 – you can have your whizzy dizzy rides ….. never did…never will 🙂 x
