Sarah stood at the top of the cliff her toes curled around the edge of the jagged rocks She glanced briefly down towards the circular blue pool which appeared to be the size of a laundry bucket from this height She knew from experience that if she hesitated paused to gather courage it would only make it harder to take the step into space She drew in a deep breath counted to herself One two three and placed her life in the hands of gravityAs she descended the magical power and speed of falling through the sunlight and then plunging into the water exhilarated her It was always the same and yet the rush she experienced felt as thrilling as the first time As she broke the surface of the water any remaining oxygen escaped from her lungs Upon surfacing she would give her golden brown hair a shake and gasp for air while trying to cope with the adrenalin that bolted through her veins She awoke from this pleasant reflection with a grin on her face It wasnt until she began to regain full consciousness that the sinister fingers of her dreadful disease reached around her chest and began to squeezeThe daily shock of realisation confronted her Every morning she had to face the horrific facts again and again and again Lying back in her bed she listened to the small birds whistling cheerfully outside She couldnt help reminding herself of how pointless and irrational it was to resent the native birds which sat on the dry summer twigs Finally she could not bear to listen to them any more They could dance so freely then stretch their wings and fly awaySarahs thoughts were disturbed by her mothers loud entrance to the room As always she was trying her absolute best to sound cheerful and indirectly supportive How are you feeling she inquired compassionately Simply fantastic Sarah replied sarcastically Her mother attempted to ignore
