Roll up, roll up. Let us entertain you (Friday Fictioneers)

The space train was at full capacity. The front carriages were for the fancy-pants rich folk, the middle cars for all the eats where the rich mingle with the rest of us. The last cars were ours. Me and my mates. Traveling the space lanes with our magic, zero-g gymnasts and amoeba and jellyfish tricks. We live out here, love out here, were born out here. We are Circus Express and on the nights we perform we are gods. Beings come from far and wide to watch show. I see you approve. Welcome. Take a seat. Prepare to be entertained.

This is a Friday Fictioneers Prompt

Success! You’re on the list.
  1. Does dark matter warp space-time to create the rails the space train runs on?

  2. I’m buckled in and ready for the show! 🙂

    • Haha 🤣 thanks… watch out for the zero- g clowns and water sprayers. Those globules will continue floating around until they hit something! Then keep forming…

  3. Dear Laurie,

    Sounds like out of this world entertainment. 😉 Love the descriptions.



  4. Delightful!

  5. Loved the memories this piece evoked for me. Really good take.

  6. Sounds like I want a seat!

  7. Nicely done. Enjoyed it.

  8. I would like to see those jelly-fish tricks, sounds like fun.

    • Oooo yeah. In zero-G they float around, stretching and shrinking, twirling around, bright colors. Glorious to watch 😉

  9. I’m prepared — give me more!

    • Woooooo! Take a seat, grab some popcorn. And look up. Don’t blink or you might miss something amazing.

  10. Space Cirque de Soleil. I love it!
