People think I’m crazy, usually even when I try to explain to them why I like getting shot out of a cannon. Sure, the rush of acceleration when the propellant explosion hits you is a huge rush of excitement, too. But the best part is the high point.

See, something shot from a cannon travels in an arc, and between the way up and the way down there is a moment of weightlessness. Everything just seems to stop, and I can take a long second to enjoy the view.

Bloody good aim is important, sure. Can’t miss the net once.

Combining the prompts "Zenith" from Aldersprig and "Zany" from Tara Tyler.
