Fortis

A girl wakes up on a rock in the middle of a desert. On her left is the mountains, and on her right is mist. Which side does she take? And what will she find at the end of her journey?

5. The Rope Bridge

After I take a step, the whole bridge swings underneath. I breathe in and grip onto the rope handles. 

"Pfooooooooo" I breathe and take another step. It swings again. There's no looking back, the only way is ahead. The snapping and growling below makes me want to sprint across. But if I do that, everything will probably snap below me and I will fall to a vicious death. Not the way I want to go out of this world. 

I want this over and done with. I take another step, it doesn't swing as much this time. It is getting darker, and soon enough it will be pitch black. 

I walk at a steady pace gripping onto the rope. I start to feel safer. The end is nearing. 

I keep my sights on the end. 

I daren't breathe. 

The snapping is becoming louder. 

I have reached the end. 

I take a step and my right foot breaks a plank and goes straight through. 

"Noo!" I scream and grip the rope above me even tighter. I haul myself over and land on my back looking up at the moon. Oh how beautiful. I get up and walk ahead. A path near. I walk around a corner and see my next challenge. A massive stone stairway, at the top, I see a white house. 

"Are you kidding me!" I yell, and my voice echoes off the walls near me.
