Defying Gravity

“Mikey, I’m scared,” Sandy panted. She stumbled on the hem of her tattered skirt.

“We’ve got to keep moving, Sandy. Come on.” Mikey pulled his sister to her feet and urged her onward.

“Mikey—,” Sandy was on the verge of panic.

“Just stay close, all right?” He led the way up the stairs.

“They’re on the roof! There’s no way out now!” The bullies’ cruel laughter echoed behind them.

The two searched frantically for an escape route. They turned as the rooftop door clunked against the wall.

“You shouldn’t have come up here,” the ruthless leader taunted. “You should have known that, if we didn’t get you, gravity would.”

Mikey pulled Sandy’s arms around his waist and jumped. The clothesline broke from their combined weights, but they reached the fire escape unharmed. Mikey yelled back to the shocked faces of his enemies.

“Mikey and Sandy, one. Gravity, zero.”

Artist's Description

My interpretation of the Zero Gravity prompt of Flash Fiction’s August challenge. I hope it’s not too much of a stretch.

All feedback is welcome, of course.
