I had never been a fan of carnival rides, they always felt dodgy.
We were flying, spinning around three stories above the ground. I could hear the metal creaking and groaning.
Then it happened.
I heard a growling grinding noise, then a metallic ping.
Next thing I knew I was plummeting towards the ground.
I thought about how devastated my mum would be, how happy my step-sister would be. I thought about my old dog, Gumby.
Then suddenly I wasn’t falling anymore. I was flying upwards with two big strong arms cradling me.
That was the day I met Superman.
