FFfAW – Don’t Jump!!

I told him not to do it. I begged him not to do it. But he was determined to do it anyway. I cried. That didn't phase him.

I watched as he walked on the roof to the edge. I prayed he wouldn't jump. My heart was beating out of my chest.

I told him I loved him, but he didn't believe me. I tried to convince him that I loved him. Still, he stood on the edge of the roof and jumped.

My heart dropped.

He flew! He flew like he said he could and I didn't believe him.

  1. Well done PJ. It reminds me of the first episode of the series ‘Heroes’. Nice job building up the tension and making us believe he is going to commit suicide. Cool twist at the end. Cheers, Varad

  2. Oh my goodness, PJ, you had me so worried! Great tension, I really thought this was going to have a tragic ending. What a relief that it didn’t!

  3. Crazy ending! I thought he was suicidal. That would be amazing to see him fly. Wo set how he does it?

I would love to read your thoughts...
