Defying Temptation – 100 Word Flash Fiction

Jason veered off the narrow path through the frozen forest while calculating the many risks involved. Fresh air cleared his aching head. “I can do it.”

The snow stung his cold cheeks as he struggled to keep himself upright. Beetle ravaged Lodgepole pine branches tore at his sleeves, but he forced his way through. Darkness closed in around him. His heart began to race.

The mountain sloped downward and he picked up speed. A light beckoned as he broke through the dense evergreens. Jason launched himself up into the air  temporarily suspending time and then he landed a perfect 720!

When was the last time you took a chance?

Are you an adrenaline rush junkie?

  1. Thanks Lime!
    I was afraid that more readers may miss the inference that he was snowboarding or skiing. It would be hard to make the leap if you didn’t know what a 720 was. (Pun intended – Hahaha!)


  2. That’s a lot in 100 words!
    Gave quite a rush..
    When was the last time I took a chance… Don’t remember really…
    Has got me thinking!
    Thanks for sharing this… :)


  3. Never imagined that 100 words can bring adrenaline rush in me! Thrilling read.
    I was adrenaline rush junkie during my college days. Used to get one riding two wheelers Now I am super careful even driving my four wheeler.
    When was the last time I took a chance? – I got married. Stopped taking chances after that.


  4. I used to enjoy high-speed activities, but now I’m more of a woosie. Father time has a way of making injuries more painful and longer to heal.

    But I could feel the wind and snowflakes splattering against my frozen cheeks. Good story.

  6. Hi,
    Well written, I enjoyed the read.
    I’m not an adrenaline rush junkie, for 2 reasons.
    1. I’m a bit of a coward.
    2. I’m now a bit too old to worry about it. :D
