The Drop: A Mystery Short Story

by Claire Murray

"C'mon. You'll really love it. The view is fantastic."
"I don't know, Doug. It sounds kind of scary. Why do you call it "The Drop"?
"Oh, it's amazing. You're walking along and there's all sorts of trees and scenery and then... Boom! You're at a drop-off. Go too fast and you could drop right off the edge."
