Rock Fall (Yeah Write #250 – Microstory)

He dared me to do it.

“Go on Siobhan, climb to the top!”

“Scared of heights,” I shrugged. “You give it a go Mal.”

He almost made it.

I still remember the expression on his face as he fell from the rock.

    Sounds like something a big brother would do…goading on his little sister then trying it himself to show her what a baby she was being. Then karma kicked in! LOL

    Very nicely done! The ending made me think that maybe that was Siobahn’s goal all along?

    Ohhh she’s a bit devious, I reckon! Sounds exactly like something I would have done to my bro. lol

  4. Liv says:

    Oh dear. That’s why I tell my kids not to do that.

  5. Oh, that will justify her fear of heights.

    I cringed a little extra watching my son do the climbing wall after reading this. At least they usually bounce.
