The grumpy abseiling wall
I was the first one up. There was a roar of laughter that came from the wall. I shrugged. Really. I thought it would be scary but for that height It's not.The grumpy wall was hungry. I walked swiftly into his mouth because I wanted to get it over with. I was nervous but excited at the same time. Slowly I climbed the ladder-like spine. It tickled the grumpy wall. Echoes of quiet laughter rippled from the other side of the wall like it was making fun of me. But it doesn't bother me at all. Fearlessly I climb it's amethyst ladder spine step by step. It only takes only 30 seconds. I could feel the wall getting angrier every second there is for this activity. I hope I can persuade him to not keep the view all to himself. So I give it a go and you know what he listened and he said sorry and he shared the view with every one! This wall won't be able to fear him. Finally I reached the top. Know I know why the wall didn't want me to make it. The view is just so beautiful. I could see the mountains far away in the distance. People like baby spiders are scurrying between activities their cheering for me sounding like a whisper. It was awesome. I could feel shaking from the ground. A loud grumble from its belly jolts me into fright.The tower started shaking ferociously like an earth quake in the middle of a tornado in America. I got scared. Oh no! I froze with fright.The grumpy wall spewed me out. I quickly grabbed two bits of giant chocolate like rope swings. I got into an L shape and started abseiling down the wall. The angry wall was furious :(. There was a sound that deafened me. The angry wall was screaming ouch. The sound was louder than fireworks and thunder put together. As soon as I got down I felt free. I hope I can persuade him to not keep the view all to himself. So I give it a go and you know what he listened and he said sorry and he shared the view with every one! What an amazing experience. Especially when the wall was twelve meters tall.
The Moral of the story: don't be afraid of something you've never done before seize the fear and give it a go I'm sure you will find it fun. You might even be really good at it.
