Balloon (Flash Fiction)

Found on Google Images


It was a great big balloon, with every color of the rainbow shimmering from it.

They watched as it grew larger and larger. It was beautiful.There were just a few minutes left.

“All ready!” The air man called out.He gave a quick puff to the air horn that hung 'round his neck.

Cheers, whoops and whistles filled the air.

“Be ready!” He called out.

The balloons began to rise from the ground.

“Eyes up and weights off!”

A loud roar rose up from the crowds as the balloons rose up in the air, a shimmering of color and hope.
