Carousel

"I do not want to go up there. Look how high it goes, I'm scared." Tina tells her dad.

"Come on my dear. It does go high, but it does come back down too. Just like life." Her dad smiles at her.

"What does that mean?"

"You might have a lot of high points in your life, but one day it can all come down. Similarly, the low points in your life will not last forever as well. They will go up too. Life is all about this."

"I'll go on the ride as long as you are with me."

This drabble (100 word fiction) is written for Friday Fictioneers, 9th October 2015.
