Second Sun #110

by

If she lost it in this darkness, she would never find it again.
So it must be now.
She gripped the dagger's blade between her teeth and leapt into the black void.
As her muscles exploded into action, her mind emptied itself of all expectation. Something distant recalled her father's teaching:

breathe deep;
empty your mind,
accentuate your senses;
predict nothing, assume nothing, judge nothing;
react to everything.
Breathe deep;
empty your mind...

but something within her emptied her mind of that, too.
She fell on whatever was there, and felt it struggle wildly beneath the crush of her fall.
