“Come on, Dillon!” I heard Bryce say impatiently next to me. We stood on his roof, looking at the ground below us; his parents weren’t home and he had two other friends over. Naturally, we were all going to do something incredibly stupid. His friends stood in the yard about thirty feet away from us, plastic surf boards next to them.
“Logan’ll get us some surf boards and then we can do it! It’ll be fun!” I wasn’t so sure of that, but still… what could go wrong?
“Fine, I’ll do it,” I said as Logan picked up the two boards and walked over to them. He tossed them onto the roof and then moved back to his former position in the yard. I took a breath as Bryce fetched them and handed one to me; I really didn’t have much say in the matter.
“We’ll go on three,” he said, positioning himself carefully on the board. I did the same and had to work to keep my balance; this was hard! I started to count, sweat dripping down my face as the sun beat down on us from above. I was only ten; why would I do this?
Bryce was grinning and waving wildly to the other two boys.
I braced myself for the impact that was soon to come, still scared out of my mind.
“Now!” Bryce said; I pushed off, sliding quickly down the roof. Wind blew against my face as a slid down, and I almost lost my balance several times. Once I was airborne I felt myself shift. I closed my eyes, waiting for the inevitable. I heard laughing as a fell, indicating Bryce hadn’t followed; how could I have been so stupid?
Then I hit the ground. With a groan I turned over and looked at Bryce on the roof; he was grinning. I did the same, and I almost started laughing. That was more fun than I thought it would be!
“See! I told you,” Bryce yelled from the roof as I stood. I pressed my hands against my eyelids attempting to hold back laughter. My back was covered with dirt and grass stains; I knew my mom would be furious but I ignored them. Bryce quickly jumped off of the roof and dusted his shorts off, waving to his friends. We turned towards his house and walked in with our minds set on lunch; we hadn’t eaten anything all day.
