Saturday Centus Week 88 – Prompt: A cliffhanger using “Hanging off a cliff!” – in 104 words – “Take My Hand” Part 1

09 Jan

 
Children gathered around, anxious to make a start on our seaside walk. They’d been excited for weeks in anticipation of seeing the sea-worn cliffs.

Not long into the walk, I heard a scream. Adults checked. All were there.

Another scream.

Peering over the cliff edge, I saw a child. We phoned for help as I comforted her.

“I’m slipping!” she screamed.

I couldn’t stand the thought of doing nothing so I started down.

Grabbing the best handhold I could, “Take my hand.”

She couldn’t reach. I had to give up my footing relying on one handhold.

“He’s hanging off a cliff!” someone above called.
