__Picture It & Write — Fallen

Here’s another picture prompt ermiliablog was generous enough to post. I have a few ideas for this one, but there’s one pushing harder than the rest, so that is the one I’ll go with.

Story Inspired:
 
They said I couldn’t do it. They said that I was too afraid; as the new girl, the one from the city, I wouldn’t have the guts to follow through. They said I was weak, pathetic. That my clothes were strange and my hair too ugly. They said I wouldn’t good enough unless I did it.
 
The flimsy railing creaked beneath my weight as I teetered, balancing between the heels of my feet and my toes. The wind lashed against me, as cruel and determined to kill me as the twisted faces behind me, watching. It snatched at my clothes, pushing and pulling, disrupting my balance.
 
I wasn’t afraid! It wasn’t even that high. If I could just ignore the bubbling in my stomach forcing itself up my throat, I’d actually be able to open my eyes.
 
“Jump! Jump! Jump!” The chant grew louder and louder from the demons behind me.
 
“Don’t do it!” The hoarse, frightened voice was in my head, the rational part of my brain battling to force logic into the jumbled chaos of my fears.
 
But it wasn’t high! And the water didn’t look too cold or deep. Besides, if I didn’t… I would get laughed at for the rest of my life. No one would want to be my friend. I had to do it!
 
I had to!
