I heard the voice of one of the guards who were chasing me down. I was cornered on top the houses as several guards were chasing me down.
“I’ll have your hand for a trophy, street bat!” (see, see what I did there)
There were only two ways to go face them head on or jump, well jump it is. This is crazy.
“All of this for two apples?” I asked to myself as the guards came closer.
I braced myself as I was getting ready to leap. After I left the surface I crashed into clothes that were hanging out to dry from the the houses near the alley and knocked them down with me as I crashed onto the ground. I winced as I got up from the spot I crashed on, at least the apples were ok.
“There he is!” one of the guards screamed. “You won’t get away so easily!” the other yelled louder.
“You thought that was easy?” I say back up to them even though they probably wouldn’t be able to hear me.
