Gravity Wins

The last decision is the easiest.

Step forward and…

Down.

Down.

Tumbling headlong toward unforgiving pavement. Life is now measured in seconds, fractions of seconds.

Racing by.

Faster.

Screaming.

The wind cries out in agony as air molecules are pierced, fractured, scattered into oblivion. What was is no more.

Nothing.

Gone.

Finished.

The fall is finite. Air gives way to ground.

Impact.

Silence.

Gravity wins.
