The flag is being guarded closely, red paisley bandanna visible behind warm bodies. A tap on my shoulder I inhale sharply, but it's my teammate. We make a run for it, wind ricocheting off my face I reach, reach arm like a torch at the Olympics. roots stick out and trip me, twist away torso like gumbi I got it, now breathless strides until safe inside our imaginary border line. Slaps on the back and hollers that echo through the night my fingers cling to the trophy like claws.
