Stage Fright

by George F Mason
Originally published by on 10/02/2013

Anxiety was getting the better of him, it brought a lump to his throat and he could feel his shoulders shake as he walked towards the wooden stage. As he climbed the steps, with his small entourage following him, he could hear the crowd cheering. His pulse was racing and he knew he wouldn't disappoint them.

With weakening knees he was almost there, he took a deep breath and took several steps forward. This was it; he'd entered the arena for what would be his last performance.

"Stick yer head in there, lad, it'll soon be over," said the hangman.
