So this is it? This is out challenge? I thought to myself as I stood on the edge of the cliff. It can’t be ... can it?
I just stood at the back of the Killer Bass line, not paying attention to anything except the depth of that cliff ... how would I ever make it down there? Standing there, I was wallowed in my own little world of fear and nervousness, and I could only do as much as stand on the dried-grass ground, taking a little step forward once in a while as the line moved forward. Duncan shot me a nervous glance from his spot in the line, and my heart skipped a beat despite what was going on.
Katie and Sadie, Tyler, and most of the campers had already jumped off, and landed safely. Only five people, Duncan, Courtney, DJ, Sofie and me were left ... not that any of us planned to jump. Duncan looked at me again, in that very same way.
Why does he keep looking at me? Am I seeing things? No. It couldn’t be. I’d always had perfect eyesight, and he was definitely looking at me, one time after another.
I kept trying to think of ways I could keep from jumping. Chris would never let me jump off ... what if I died? My dad would kill him. You know, he is a member of the Federal Government. And I don’t want to brag, but ever since I joined the show, I’m sure the viewers had gone up to like, ten million.
Duncan strided forwards, and he looked back at me one last time, maybe [i]the last time. But then, the next second, he crossed his arms, and went back to the who cares attitude, as he stepped off the cliff coolly. I froze. I wanted to see if he was okay, but I couldn’t. It was as if he had never even turned around to look at me; as if he didn’t even know I was there. As if none of that had ever happened.
DJ and Courtney had already refused to jump, and if was only Sofie and me left. I looked at her nervously, and that second, even though I didn’t know her very well, she and I shared the same sense that moment.
“Are you sure you wanna...?” I asked.
“I have to,” she answered, shivering.
Good luck, I wanted to say, but she was already about to jump off. Then, if felt like she was a long-time friend, and I’d die if she left me, even though I had only known her for like a day. But I was worrying about what I’d do.
Sofie had made it down, but then ... it was my turn. I couldn’t jump ... but at the same time, I couldn’t not jump.
I looked at Chris. He looked back at me and said quietly, “Sorry, Ki. You have to jump.” I knew he meant it, so I didn’t argue. How could he? How could my father?
Looking down, I knew I could do it. For my team. I’d do anything.
“Wait for me,” I called out to no one in particular. To all the people I loved. Who would miss me once I...
I stepped off the cliff then, but I instantly regretted it. I should’ve taken my flip-flops off. I shouldn’t have signed up for this stupid show.
Miraculously, I did land in the “safe” area, and as I ducked my head underwater to clear the hair out of my eyes, I just saw one of my flip-flops sink deeper into the sea. My heart lurched. My mother had bought those for me. They were special. And also ... she’d kill me if I lost them.
I took a deep breath and plunged myself into the black sea, where my rhinestone-studded shoe sparked.
