#108 The Fall

The boy screams pierced her ears.

Her hands trembled as the wind hit her face.

“Your next” He growled pushing her forward.

She turned white as her grip loosened on the metal rail and gave way. They had said it would feel like she was floating but the feeling was more terrifying than anything else. The earth seemed to be rising up to meet her. This wasn’t how she wanted it to end!

She gave the red cord a sharp tug and sighed as her descent slowed down. The bright orange parachute opening above her reminded her of the sun.

  1. wow. as usual. Another great and unanticipated twist.
    I had her being hung for some crime.

  2. Wasn’t sure if it was going to be a parachute or a bungee cord… but I did think it might be a sacrificial knife at first…

  3. That’s pretty much what it was like when I did it, yeah!
