A high bridge.
Below, a swollen river with clear water. I look down and I am terrified. I’m not sure if I can go ahead with it or if I want to anymore.
"Jump, if you’re going to" a voice calls out, followed by laughter.
Other voices join in and I know that I can’t turn back now even if I want to. I have an audience to appease.
I climb over the barrier, take a deep breath and jump.
I’m falling, falling… until the cord halts my descent.
My first bungee jump was terrifying and thrilling.
An amazing experience.
Author Notes: This is a work of fiction. I would NEVER bungee jump!
