A short story
Wonderful how you captured the internal grit of the athletic mindset regardless the activity or profession its applied to. I can already see Clementine in the big leagues!
Always the twist!!!
2 cyclists, different eras, both both wanting to compete in the Olympics. And the strange bolt of lightening. Where does it take them? What happens next?
"Rusted metal filled his mouth..."
What a great story! Love the build up!
This ending is gold!
I enjoyed it.
I would love to see what bike Clementine rides, that is one epic cargo bike.
Another great story, Bill! And I can't wait for the sequel!
I loved it. I am not so sure Nathaniel loved it, though. But then again, maybe he did. A change is good sometimes.
By the way, when I read this from the home page on the Substack app, the comments were from the Lunar Awards survey! Weird.. I had to go to your page and access the story from there to get to these comments. So you may not get as many comments? Maybe the app is being wonky today. Hopefully it is temporary.
