Smorgasbord Short Stories – Authors in the Sun – Not So Fair at the County Fair by Marlene Mesot

Posted on August 10, 2021 by Smorgasbord – Variety is the Spice of Life.

When I worked on radio in the south of Spain I presented and recorded four series of Authors in the Sun showcasing local writers and their short stories. I ran a series here on the blog in 2017 which was much enjoyed and showed off the skills of some amazing writers.

I would love to share your short stories here too this summer and details of how you can participate is at the end of the post.

Today’s story is from Marlene Mesot… featuring her main characters from the 4 Elements of Mystery series.based on a real experience.

Not So Fair at the County Fair

by Marlene Mesot

The first weekend following the start of summer school at Iandale State College found Alex Marcus and his fiancé Missy Sanders riding in tandem out to the County Fair. Alex in front and Missy on the back of his yellow tandem bicycle, anticipated a joyous Saturday experiencing the exhibits, rides and food offered there. Once they had reached their destination, Alex found a chain link fence where he could chain and lock his bike in the gravel parking lot. Then they walked hand in hand toward the fairground entrance.

As they began to walk the midway Alex asked, “What would you like to do first, Fair Lady?”

Missy answered simply. “Merry-go-round.”

Alex smiled and nodded. He knew her aversion to the thrill rides. Secretly he was just as glad not to partake of the more adventurous experiences himself. He glanced up into a bright blue cloudless sky. It seemed a perfect day for their enjoyment. The sun was hot but humidity was low and there was a slight breeze. They were together and all seemed right with their world. What could possibly go wrong on such a beautiful day? Alex shook his head. Nothing at all, don’t go there, he thought.
