Jumping off the rock

Jumping off the rock.

“Three two one jump” the class were yelling.
I could not do it.
What if I skid and hit the water and got took down by a rapid that was going 20 km per hour.
The longer I stood there the faster and faster the water revved up like a racing car doing laps of an tremendous track.

Suddenly an enormous gust of fresh air came like it was going to bowl me over just when I was about to jump. I lept, ‘boom’ went my heart. The water jumped and I fell.

Slowly the water crawled up my body. My arms were burnt.  The pain throbbed like it would never stop.
