Short Story: One Shove

Genre: slice of life, action?
My response to the prompt irrelevant.

 

Just moments ago, they were butting heads over differing opinions. In anger, he shoved her, only for the ground to crumble.

Now she hung over the edge, held in the air only by him.

“That was an accident,” he said.

“That’s fine. As long as you don’t let go.”

He shifted into a more stable crouch.

“I still don’t agree with you,” he said as he pulled her up.

“What are you trying to say? You’ll drop me if I don’t agree?”

“Don’t be silly. Just because we disagree doesn’t mean I want you dead.”

Finally, her feet touched solid ground.

“Sorry for pushing you,” he said, face burning.

“Thanks for saving me,” she said, cheeks equally red.

They shared a small smile.

“Now let’s get out of here.”

~End~
