Week 24: The Challenge : By Dan

I was going to take it one foot at a time.

I was absolutely terrified, I had never walked a tightrope in public.                      I had no harness so if I fell I was a definite goner.

“I’m trying to hold on” he shouted.  I looked around and saw a man holding the rope in agony.
