Saturday! And how! Sunny and mild, a light breeze, the leaves on the trees just starting their change from the green of summer to the varied pallette of fall. A perfect day for a walk!
You leave your house by the back door and follow the trail into the tree-covered hills. After a mile or so, deep in the woods, you pass an apple tree loaded with red fruit, its branches so low you must duck to walk underneath. As you reappear on the other side, you reach up and select your breakfast from its boughs.
After a hearty rub on your shirt, the apple's skin shines so brightly you can almost see yourself. Mouth watering, you bring it to your mouth...
The scream comes deep from within you as the ground beneath your feet collapses. You feel yourself falling... falling... falling...
