I wobbled as I tried to regain my balance on the thin metal rail.
“Careful!” Kenzie screamed, “Don’t fall off the rail!”
I stuck my arms straight out and found my center. “Why not?”
“Duh! The bears will get you!”
I turned and frowned, but quickly gave up the expression as I wobbled again. “I thought that was the cracks in the pavement?”
“I’m being creative, come on, move it.”
I managed to keep my balance all the way to the bridge. I usually fell first, but this time it was a tie.
I turned around with a satisfied grin on my face, but Kenzie shook her head.
“Nope. Today we’re going to the other side! Then we’ll be safe from the bears.”
I stared at her, lost my balance and fell off the rail.
“Ha! I win! The bears got you!”
I held my hands up. “You win. Let’s go.”
She shook her head and kept going. “No way, the bears ain’t getting me.”
“Kenzie, come on, dad will have a fit if he finds out. It’s too dangerous.”
She turned and stuck her tongue out at me as she moved out over the open air.
I couldn’t go home, not after that, so now I live with the bears on the track, waiting for her to come back.
