Thanks for stopping. Another picture…another 100 words.
The sting radiating from Shannon’s new blister threatened her goal, but she wanted to keep going. Her mission was to finish this hike on this day. She knew she could do it.
She’d even lost sight of her sexy new friend. Watching his firm back side had kept her at a brisk pace most of the morning. A rushing rumble rang out and the surrounding forest fell silent.
She pulled on everything she had left and willed her legs into the final climb. The falls came into view, washed away her sorrows, and filled her with peace.
“You made it.”

Nice ending. I would like to read more of an expanded scene from this flash. Suspense built as I read to the end.
Nice! Hope she gets a reward for climbing all that way 🙂
Nothing quite like that moment of triumph. I’m sure she’ll be rewarded.
Yay! I’m glad she made it, wonderful imagery Angelica!
I meant SJ of course! Just glancing at Angelica’s comment above as l wrote it – sorry!
I love it. The imagery of the falls is described perfectly together with her eyes training on his butt Great flash SJ
Ohhh I want to know more, I love the ending, and nothing better than feeling driven to finish something, even through pain and sweat. She made it and reached her goal to find him waiting. 🙂
