416 words - 2 pages

We hopped on the shiny red quad. Colton sat on the soft seat and I sat on the cold metal rack. The trail was lit only by moonlight and a faint shimmer from the racetrack lights.

My sweaty hands were losing touch with the metal rack, which were the only things in contact with the quad. The quad started coming down as I felt my stomach coming back up. We landed and I could hear the quad speeding off in the distance. I opened my eyes and could see the tree tops in the sky. My head was throbbing with pain. I felt as if I had just fallen off a cliff, and I hoped that no more quads were coming down the trail.
