Mild Panic

Tanya came home. Larry’s truck was in the driveway. The bed was filled with dirt.

Tanya said, “No, no.”

Larry came out of the house.

When she was sixteen, Tanya was a courageous swimmer. She was especially good at diving. Not diving, she was good at jumping. She jumped off of high walls at the dam. She jumped before anyone else did. She jumped from parts that no one else would jump from, high ones. She flipped backwards before anyone else dared to. She had a good center of balance.

Tanya climbed back onto her bicycle. Larry climbed into his truck.

Bryce Davis lives in the Southwest. Her writing has appeared.
