Roy hated ski trips.
This was just a simple fact of life. Everyone knew this. Roy hated ski trips, would never like ski trips, and it was a waste of time to make him like ski trips.
Linda didn’t know that though. As a new hire, her knowledge of her colleagues was pretty limited. Which was how Roy ended up, grumbling and moaning, up the Alps on a 5 day ski trip....
The beauty of Amber is captivating. Her skin is glowing in the sunlight. “Honey, it’s about time we go skiing, isn’t it?” Amber smiles, standing up to get dressed.
“Yeah, we have to be there in an hour,” I say. My hands get clammy, and I sweat more. I walk into the bedroom, seeing Amber half-dressed. I bring my hands up to my eyes. “Oh my god Amber, I’m so sorry!” Backing away, I trip over somet...
No matter how cold it was on Mount Scarlet, the fire inside kept raging like a bull about to charge someone. Mount Scarlet was secretly a volcano, ready to burst outward like a cannonball getting shot out of a cannon. It had been pushed by earthquakes for centuries, yet it would not explode. Over time, the pressure kept building up further until today, where it shall explode in the most violent vo...
I am the biggest klutz in the world. My family went on a ski trip for winter break. My very first time on the mountain, I fall down it and break my arm. And I didn’t even have my skis on.
I know what you’re thinking, how can you be that clumsy? I don’t really know, but here I am, sitting by the fire in the lodge while the rest of my family is out having fun.
Oh it was such agony, hearing my bon...
“I can’t believe this,” Liz muttered angrily, slamming the door shut. “Even wasting all that money would’ve better.”
She narrowed her eyes at me.
I sighed. No, this was not how this ski trip was supposed to go. It was supposed to be our big last-winter-break-of-high-school trip, the one me, Aric, Liz, and Tyler had saved up for for five years, ever since seventh grade when we all...
“Try to keep up!” Jason yelled as he whizzed past me, leaning his body into the wind to get more speed.
I shook my head, smirking as I drove my skis into the snow, shoving off down the hill. Not long after, Drew Wesley pulled up beside me, looking me up and down.
“You ski like a girl,” he quipped, raising an eyebrow under his ski mask.
“That’s what I am, stupid,” I laughe...
Kaylie glides serenely down the fresh layer of snow, looking gorgeous in her pale rose jacket and white knit cap. Her graceful little jumps and twirls are perfectly timed. I, on the other hand, bump and tumble clumsily down the hill, trying to keep my balance on my oversized skis. Not mention how dorky I look in my huge grey jacket and ugly green helmet. I’m all but graceful.
Honestly, I have n...
“It’ll be fun, won’t it?” Elena asked Fiona excitedly.
“Sure.” Fiona smiled. She couldn’t think of anything worse. When Jake had first mentioned the ski trip she’d smiled and nodded and expected it to go into the pile of things he mentioned but that they never got round to doing. Except it didn’t. The next week he’d bombarded her with tickets. And now she was stuck.
“I’ve never been before, have y...
He held his snowboard firm in his hands. His trusty companion in the snow. It was sheathed in a coat of frosty snow and it became his icy weapon. He saw the enemy troops disembarking from pods that rotated constantly like a conveyor of bad news. His had his companions. Fellow brutes brandishing their snowboards like zweihanders. Others had opted to created a wall of snowboards that towered and pro...
