The Finals

Daniel was nervous. Today was the day that he would find out if all his training had paid off. Racing wasn’t easy.

He had been racing for 3 weeks straight and the end was in sight. Would he win, or would he lose?

He ran a hand over his mousey hair and coughed nervously into his hand.

“This is it Danny boy. No turning back now.”

He turned his head and stared into the eyes of the pilot next to him. Much silence ensued as they sized each other up. The team the other pilot raced for was known for its aggressive tendencies and he knew of Daniel and his sneaky tactics.

The two nodded to each other before yet another bout of silence. Daniel twitched and turned his head to face him again…

“Well, are you going to switch the game on then or not?”
