Flash! Friday: Prompt #34

You may think that I've been extraordinarily busy with both the Blogger Book Fair and Camp NaNoWriMo (which is true), but that doesn't mean that I've forgotten that it's Friday!

This week's Flash! Friday prompt limits us to 75 words (+/- 5) on the photo below:

Staying Safe

The tram screeched as it began its descent.
One.

It took thirty seconds to reach the bottom.
Two.

Luke shut his eyes.
Three.

He didn’t have to watch it fly above the snowy valley.
Four.

Breathe.
Five…Six…Seven…Eight.

This tram was one of the fastest in the world.
Nine.

Twenty-three passengers.
Ten…Eleven…Twelve.

He forced his eyes open.
Thirteen.

His exhale steamed from his mouth.
Fourteen.

Luke pressed the button.
Fifteen.

Flames erupted in the ice-cold air.
