The Wall #32

Jenny MatlockSo...last week our fearless leader, Jenny Matlock,  gave us a two part prompt to be written in cliffhanger style with the build up, in 100 words, last week to the literal prompt, hanging off a cliff, concluding, in only 50 words, this week.  Here's last week's cliffhanger...

~ We decided it would be better to mail John's letter from the post office in the next town. Rather than send it off with one of the villagers, Wally wanted to take it himself.
Around 6 AM, he borrowed the innkeeper's car. The town was only 20 minutes away so he'd easily be back in an hour. There was still no sign of him at 9 AM...I was getting antsy!
The delivery boy arrived for work out of breath. With a worried look on his face, he pulled the innkeeper aside. On his way across the moor, he'd seen Matthew's car...hanging off a cliff! ~

And now for the conclusion...

Matthew grabbed some rope before we rushed to the cliff.
The car was teetering over the edge, door open.. Fearing what I might see, I inched to the top. There was no sign of Wally. I scanned the area nervously.
Someone touched my sleeve.
 Grinning weakly, Wally held me tight.

Oh my goodness, I love it, but this so needs to be continued too, it can go in so many different directions, isn't that funny how some one simple thought could lead well to a whole bunch of chapters?!!!

Jenny said...

Just when I was wondering, 'Where's Wally?'

I always love a happy ending.

I'm so sorry about cutting the words. Everything was such a crisis here with our kitchen that I forgot I had already said 100!
