Short Story: Roof Access

Follows after The Open Window.

Written in response to the Inktober prompt #13: Roof.

~Roof Access~

The Roof is a dangerous place. Understandable, since it’s not designed for frequent visits.

But her son, like his father, finds it relaxing to sit high above the ground. He even rigged his bedroom window to get access.

Since her son is determined to climb up the roof, she’s determined to make it safe. Well, safer. They install safety rigging, not just on the roof itself, but the window too so he’s protected from the moment he steps out. They also plant a thick carpet of bushes on the ground, so that if all else fails, her son has something softer to land on.

Of course, she prefers that her son doesn’t put himself into danger at all, but it’s better to have the protective measures in place, than risk her son trying to do this behind her back with no precaution at all.
