FLASH FICTION PROMPT

She took a deep breath and kicked off from the dirt hole. The
swing shot her straight through the air and for a moment, it was as if
she could inhale and snatch the sky from where it hung.

A faint smile touched her lips as she leaned back, pulling on the
thick, gnarled ropes and pumped her feet to keep the swing moving. She
sucked in one fresh, life-giving, toe-curling breath as fast as she
dared without stopping.

Breathing the air like this, in the dead of the night, with only the
stars to see her happiness, this kind of air felt like life was supposed
to be. This kind of air felt like living.

This kind of living, had to
be worth it.
