SPF: Smitten

156 05 May 15th 2016

Elsa was afraid of heights and her failed attempts caught the eye of the cable car employee. She tried to back out of the line but it was too late.

“Need some help ma’am?”  he asked, his face breaking into a friendly smile.


“Don’t worry, it’s quite safe but you know the best part?” his eyes twinkled.

Elsa shook her head dumbly.

“You get to reach for the stars and be on top of the world at the same time. Tell you what? I’ll talk you through it.”

Handing her his walkie-talkie, he  gently led her to the cable car and  gave her a wave as he closed the door.

Clutching the bar, Elsa felt slightly giddy as she moved ahead and squeezed her eyes shut.

“Having fun yet?” suddenly crackled the walkie-talkie, and her eyes flickered open.

She was awe-struck. Misty clouds swirled gracefully around and as the wisps of cotton parted she was dazzled with necklaces of snow, encircling heaven-kissing peaks.

“This is just so..wonderful…beautiful…,” her voice broke.

“There’s nothing quite like nature’s beauty,” he responded softly.

“See you on the way back and oh, my name’s Jake by the way!”

Elsa blushed.
