Do you trust me?

Standing at the top of the tower looking down the giant water slide.

Legs shaking.

Teeth chattering.

"Do you trust me?" he asked.

She looked deep in to his eyes.

Trying to see only him.

Not how impossibly high they were.

Not how terrifyingly steep the water slide was.

Just see him.

"Do you trust me?" he asked again.

Heights weren't her favorite.

Everyone knew that.

But you have to challenge yourself.

That's what he told her.

So now she stood at the top of the Raging Rapids.

"Do you trust me?" he asked slower this time.

She took a deep rattling breath.

Her palms were sweating now.

The attendant gave her a small smile.

"You can always go back down the stairs. You wouldn't be the first to change your mind."

He blocked her view.

"Do you trust me?" once again. Now with an edge. A demand.

She gathered herself together.

Walked to the edge of the slide.


And with that she let go and plunged in to the rapids alone.
