The class screamed out to Henry, pleading for him to back away from the window ledge. He kept his arms out wide, his back towards the wide, open school grounds below.
Henry’s breath was stuck with heavy pants, his urge to please the girl growing. “Like this? Is this how you wanted me?”
Far on the other side of the room, the girl was stuck with a nasty grin, nodding as Henry put his life on the line. Among the loud commotion in the classroom, she mouthed the words, “Do it.”
His intentions clear, Henry took one last step back.
