13. Day 4 - part 2


By the time I was up half way everyone had gathered at the bottom of the clock. I peered down on the squinting their eyes trying to see how far up I was.  


“I…I cant do it!” I yelled in fear nearly in tears.   “I told you…” Ross tried to shout at me but Christopher punched his arm.   


“Emma! Keep on going! Your doing great!” Morgan’s encouragement was great as I took a deep breath and carried on.  


I got to the top and held onto the top of the clock while I reached out for the dark blue glass shard which stood out. It was tough to get out, but with the last of my strength I pulled it out.  


“GOT IT!” I shouted down to them, listening to the faint sound of them cheering.   


I held the glass shard in my mouth while climbing down. My arms felt tired and so did my legs.  


“I cant go on! I cant hold on for much longer!” I screamed in panic, not sure if I could carry on.  


“Don’t you dare let go! Keep on going your only half way down!” Ross shouted up to me.  


I took another deep breath and tried to go down but my feet slipped. Hanging only by my hands I couldn’t get my feet into the slots where the bricks join. I dangled in mid air while everyone screamed at me, telling me to use all my strength to stay on. I tried and tried, but couldn’t hold on. I had to let go.
