Write the story leading up to, or going forward from, here.
Layla and Sophie, two sisters bound by an unbreakable bond, found themselves standing a few steps away from the edge of a towering cliff. The wind whipped through their hair as they gazed out at the vast expanse before them. Layla heart raced with a mix of fear and excitement, her hand tightly gripping Sophie's.
With a determined look in her eyes, Layla turned to Sophie and said, "We've faced so ...
I grab my sisters hand and pull her towards me and the cliff edge. She nods slowly, her nervousness showing through the brave face she’s put on. Then we jump. Falling is an interesting thing. It’s only a few seconds but it can feel like hours. I look down and see the whirlpool spring into action. The sensors around us have picked up our movement and made the whirlpool open. My sister and I discove...
My foot tapped on the linoleum floor of the hospital as a waited for my best friend Kory. My pupils were large and my pen scratched rapidly across my coloring book. My sharp dagger like nails digging holes in my pants. The accident seemed scary but that is because kindergartners are scared when they break their arm. (Or in this case their best friend breaks an arm.)
Once she came out a huge smile...
I grab my sister’s hand and pull her towards the cliff edge with me. She nods slowly in my direction. She’s about to jump, but I stop her.
Everybody stares at me.
“ Emily, are you sure about this? You don’t have to do this to be cool… who cares about pleasing your classmates. You could die… “
“ No I won’t, I’ll be fine Iris. It’s just a small jump…
And I’ll fall in the water anyways, I won’t...
“Keep running,” I told her, not daring to look back at our kidnappers. My younger sister, 10, was almost going faster than me out of fear.
Then I spotted the cliff. Immediate relief washed over me.
“Get to the cliff,” I yelled.
I just hoped I had enough energy to keep us going.
When we reached the edge, I grabbed my sisters hand and pulled her towards the cliff edge with me.
She nods and slowly am...
“I cant run anymore” She puffed out
I tugged on her arm, urging her forward “You can. You need to”
We couldn’t stop. We needed to keep going
“Cliff” She stammered
I saw it.
“Jump” I commanded
“What?!” She screeched back

I held my sister’s hand tightly as we plummeted to our deaths. Bullets rained down on us, but surprisingly none hit us. He must have terrible aim. I pulled Charlotte close by her hand and wrapped my arms around her. Twisting in the air, I made sure she wouldn’t take the impact. “I love you, Charlotte”
We hit the ground and then everything went black.
I woke up to someone shaking me. Charlotte l...

Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. A million thoughts race through James's head. His sister would want to follow. Her maternal instinc...
I grabbed my sister’s hand, pulling her toward the edge of the cliff. She nods slowly then, we take a leap of faith into the darkness. She gives me the look of, “what the hell did we just do?” As if I read her mind, I shrugged. She groaned and we suddenly stop falling.
“What the frickidy frack!?” I yell. We were floating. Mid air. I look at her, extremely scared.
“Shh! I’m trying to figure out i...
It was out of something you’d see in some action-packed movie, the protagonists do something reckless in a very high-stakes situation to escape whatever they’re running from. Like jumping off a cliff with your sister for example—
Okay, let’s rewind this back a bit.
It was my sister, Dessi’s, twelfth birthday. As such, our family hosted this over-the-top birthday party, casually renting a...
