‘FIRE EATER STUNS AUDIENCE’

WORCESTER 1375

“Wizard!”

As the audience applauded, the white smoke changed to grey and then back again. A red flicker shone on the palm of each of Fire-Eater’s hands. Suddenly, flicker turned to flame, appearing firstly akin to a candle before bursting, blinding, orange shafts shot into the air. Cheering and clapping, the audience screamed in delight, some cringing, fear of unknown powers filling their minds. Fire-Eater was indeed awesome to see and was now throwing his hands in the air, flames from each creating rings of fire that danced above his head. Wasp and Crow played on, stamping their feet and taking up song. Rings of orange, white and crimson flame danced around Fire-Eater as they sang.

‘Flaming fire, burning free

Creating light for you and me

Dancing flames, burning bright

Turning, spinning, into the night’

 The gathered throng hummed along with Wasp and Crow’s song and in no time at all, as Fire-Eater spun never-ending rings of fire, they began to sing. Over and over, repeating chorus after chorus, the audience sang on and on.

‘Flaming fire, burning free

Creating light for you and me

Dancing flames, burning bright

Turning, spinning, into the night’

 Wasp banged his drum three times and out went the flames in a puff of smoke, as the once blazing rings instantly disappeared. Fire-Eater bent low in appreciation of the applause filling his ears and echoing into the night. Children screamed with delight, clapping fiercely. Parents and others stamped their feet, hailing affirmations of joy. Fire-Eater swiftly slid away to the left of the crowd as Circus Master, as if by magic, appeared in the centre of the stage. Wasp beat his drum again three times. Circus Master bowed and the audience cheered.
