Never look down. Best advice I ever got. I did once - but only once. You never known panic like you do from ten stories up. Look down, or let go, and it’s all over, my friend. That cold, steel cable that’s blistering up your hands right now? That’s your lifeline, pal. That, and trust. Trust it, trust God, trust your partner. Trust the guy down on the controls didn’t drink too much before he came on shift. Step on, hold tight, and have faith. It's the only thing that keeps you up.
Never Look Down is my entry for LitStack's Flash Fiction Challenge #8.
