.: The End :.
Anne’s whole body was shaking. Just one step and it would all be over.
Her breathing quickened, and her heart raced.
Fear began to take over, as her life flashed before her. She was having second thoughts.
Trying to scatter the thoughts, Anne shook her head.
There was no going back. She just needed to take that last step.
Slowly, she put one foot out, stepping into the air.
Anne screamed, but the scream was stolen by the wind.
Closing her eyes and bracing for impact, Anne started to cry. Then the bungee cord tightened and pulled her back up.

Thank you, thank you very much! – That’s my Elvis impression. I won’t quit my day job.
Thanks, Darla. Did you see it coming? The surprise endings are getting harder and harder to pull off.
Brilliant! I almost peed my pants.
Thanks, K8. How are you feeling? I hope the fever has broken, and you have found the pep back in your step. I’ve been thinking about you – but not in the weird stalker like ways. Promise.
Well, I am still coughing up my lungs, but I actually do feel better. I am at work (I actually worked all week – somehow). My husband, on the other hand, sniffled twice this morning and called in sick. My weekend is really going to stink…
I cannot believe you went to work… and the coughing lingers the longest. Hang in there. With regards to the hubs … yeah, they do that. *sigh*
I see I replied twice … I’m sharp like that. *sigh*
Almost peed your pants, eh? That’s just because you were coughing, K8. One of those lovely perks from having kids. (hahahaha!)
Glad you liked it.
I will never ever do that. Ever.
Nor I, Steve. Never.
Rob did. He has a VHS cassette to prove it.
No. Nope. Couldn’t do it! Even seeing that one line…about stepping out…my breathing’s done for! 😀
There is no way I would take a step into open air. While writing this post, I literally started sweating and getting nervous.
Thank you, Mags. I appreciate your kindness.
Very nice. Would never do it. Ever.
Never ever. Me either.
Maybe that would get this kink out of my back…on second thought…No. I was following behind her, but didn’t see the bungee cord til the end.
Hee. Someday I hope to know this feeling! Unfortunately, that day will be somewhere down the road, (roughly) no sooner than sixteen years from now.
You are far more daring than I am, Deb. Rob’s done it – but I will never do it. And, I hope my boys never attempt it while I am alive. (smile)
