My Completed Version of Today’s Writing Prompt

The Vow by K.E. Creighton

Standing on the edge of the cliff, staring at the blue-green water below, getting ready to jump, her final words ring in my ear.

Always live your life to the fullest, with no regrets. Promise me. Don’t wait to do the things that scare you. They’re usually worth it.

I understand the irony of jumping now, endangering my life to fulfill my vow to live my life fully. But the bungee cord is new and secure, I’ve been assured. And it’s now or never.

But I can’t do it. I can’t jump. And I don’t. The wind is too strong and all I hear is the pounding of my heart in my chest.
