 Over the Cliff

 147 03 March 13th 2016

Keisha gazed up at the cliffs, heart pounding and her mind reeling from the scope of it all.
The guide held out his hand but she had to take another minute for it all to soak in. She was really here. “Somebody pinch me.”
The tall, rather lovely looking man who had brought her thru terrain she could never in her wildest dreams imagined crossing, smiled patiently and turned to tend to the horses.
Danny, one of three others on the trip, disrupted the mood, yelling “we don’t got all day”. Tying his Arabian to the stand, he headed towards the cliffs, mumbling. That guy was such a mixed bag. An emotional rollercoaster that Keisha steered clear of.
The guide, Mar an was his name, looked concerned but said nothing.
Keisha sighed and started towards the base when a roar in the distance stopped her in her tracks. Dark clouds crept over the sea behind and came upon them so suddenly she couldn’t make sense of what was happening.
Then Danny screamed.
Didn’t he? Or was that the deafening crack of the lightening striking the mountains on the horizon? Keisha couldn’t tell but something … something in that moment, deep in her heart, in a flash, was changed forever
