Status per June 10 2007

The magician keeps waving with his cape for a quite a while. Therefore the lions are not relaxing at all. Meanwhile the journalist keeps taking pictures. The act from Lydia and her magician starts as all the other nights. From behind the curtains Stijn and Els and the boss of the circus and his wife anxiously look at Lydia, the magician and the wild lions. Everything seems to go without problems. Nevertheless, the boss of the circus is still very stressed. He doesn’t feel comfortable: a lions act in circus without a lion tamer hasn’t been done before! Then the most difficult part starts. Lydia disappears in the purple box and flash….. just like the nights before she appears again swinging on a rope above the lions. One of the lions smells the grease Lydia has all over her body. The lion jumps and manages to reach Lydia’s cape. Lydia looses her balance and falls into the cage, between the lions. The wild animal seizes Lydia and pulls her by her cape and hair. Stijn sees it doesn’t hesitate for one second. He runs into the circus ring and manages the get grip of the tail of the lion. He pulls the tail with all the power he has in his body. Thanks to Stijn the lion doesn’t come any closer to Lydia but Lydia is not able to escape her attacker. It is very quite in the circus tent. Then, out of thin air, the lion tamer walks into the cage. He uses his whip a few times. The lions have his attention but the wild lion doesn’t stop his attack. Without showing any fear the lions tamer walks towards the wild animals and caresses his head while whispering some sweet words. The lion relaxes and releases Lydia from his grip. Lydia is able to escape the cage through the bars. She leaves the circus tent as fast as she can. Nobody saw her again that evening. Meanwhile the audience is yelling and shearing. They applaud for minutes for this very spectacular performance by the lion tamer and Stijn. Both enjoy this applause. The journalist managed to get everything on photo. Wow, what a story he must have for his paper.
