The Ride

I boarded the ride with my mom, who agreed to take me to a local theme park on my birthday. 

We all wore masks.

Gradually the roller coaster started climbing, and I could feel the twitch in my stomach as everything below seemed small. I was chuckling for the excitement to begin.

Just then, my mom reminded me, "Now remember, to avoid the spread of germs. You have to scream inside your heart."

I nodded.

 It was a noiseless ride.

When I got down, I wasn't content. Was it the lack of not being able to scream out loud?

In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that expresses the phrase, “scream inside your heart.” Who is involved and why is the scream contained? Go where the prompt leads!
