Day 8: 150 words

-Do you remember that date we went on? At the river?
-You wouldn't jump from the rock you were on to the rock I was on.
-The water was high. I didn't want to die.
-I know. I think that's actually what you said.
-"I don't want to die"?
-Yeah. At the time I thought it was silly but now I think I know what you meant when you said it.
-What you meant to say was, "I don't want to fall and risk you not being there to catch me."
-No, what I meant to say was, "Why do I have to jump over rivers in order to reach you?"
-It doesn't matter anyway.
-Why not?
-Well, I don't see any water here, and you're still too far away for me to touch you.
-Just reach.
-Just jump.
-I don't want to get my feet wet.
