Genre/Adventure (105 words)

 

“Come on Jen! We need to keep climbing!”

“I can’t Mike. There’s too many steps,  I just can’t do it!”

“I won’t let you give up! Now get your ass moving!”  Grabbing Jen,  Mike pulled her up the stairs. The loud clumping of boots  below  pushed them even faster.

Upward they went. Breathing hard, hearts pounding.  Reaching the top they ran to the railing, the trees were tiny from such a distance. Climbing up,  they held hands and jumped as the boots behind them reached the last step.

The soldiers looked over the railing and saw the parachutes as they gracefully dropped them to safety.

I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen! http://tobreatheistowrite.com

  1. For some reason, I knew they were going to jump, but knowing you the way I do, I thought they would just jump. So happy to read they had parachutes. 🙂 Very good, Jackie.

  3. Ah, base jumping. A good way to get away, although parachutes are rather trackable! There are a lot of people escaping up these stairs, I’m glad yours had an exit plan for when they reached the top
