“Welcome to the 31st Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2016! My name is Dilma Rousseff and I am honored to be giving this speech on behalf of the country of Brazil. I am very pleased to announce that this is the most number of Olympians ever reported participating in the Summer Olympics, and here is Miranda Delphine of Ireland to light the Olympic torch!”
Miranda starts to process on stage with a pearly white smile against her velvet soft red lips. Her perfectly painted fingers wrap around the torch like serpents. She reaches the top of the spiral staircase and with a flick of her wrist, like the wave of a wand, the silver case of the enormous torch comes back to life, as if it was hibernating. Everyone cheers and claps, for the torch is awakened and all the athletes stand tall and proud as the National Anthem of Brazil begins to be sung by a choir of small angelic children, bringing tears to all who listen to the melodious tune. When we proceed back through the tunnel, everyone takes a last glimpse of the crowd and wishing this would never end, go back through the tunnel which we all enter and kiss the stadium goodbye.
