Fools Rush In


Written for the April two-day drabble challenge on the discoveredinalj livejournal community

One rickety plank does not scaffolding make, but fast closing danger bids me to make haste, and you are waiting for me on the other side. I have no choice. There is no time for second thoughts or fear. Adrenaline and need propel me forward.

Inevitably, I fall…

But you are there to catch me.

Though my feet tread air and certain death awaits below, I know my life is safe in your sure hands. As you draw me up beside you, our eyes exchange the words we dare not say.

And, in the midst of chaos, we find peace.

-- THE END --
