The Pier

It had been a stylish “Little Black Thing” before the total immersion experience. She had been warned stiletto heals didn’t work well with rough planking or irregular cobbles. She insisted. The final stumble happened as I was about to hand her onto the gangway and safely onto the boat.

If recorded in slow motion, it would have appeared cinematic:

  1. the first instability
  2. the tip towards the edge
  3. the balancing wobble 
  4.  the final dive into the water
  5. The extended boat hook angrily shoved aside, and her lurching into the boat.

Ah, I assume this relationship isn’t going to go anywhere.
