โ€œHey, just relax. Itโ€™s okay. Youโ€™re doing great. Iโ€™ve got you.โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t let me fall- you canโ€™t let me fall!โ€

โ€œI wonโ€™t let you fall, all right? Ow, your fingers...Stop looking down! Everything's fine, just hold on to me.โ€

โ€œItโ€™s s-s-s-so f-f-far down.โ€

โ€œItโ€™s gonna be okay! Do you trust me not to let you fall?โ€

โ€œYes...Ah! Iโ€™m slipping! Lucas!โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re not slipping, itโ€™s alright. Weโ€™re alright.โ€

โ€œIt...itโ€™s pulling me, Lucas! I donโ€™t know if I can hold on without bringing you down too.โ€

โ€œIf we go down, we go down together. We will come back together, as well. Geez, Ry, stop gripping my fingers so hard, you're gonna break emโ€ฆโ€

โ€œIโ€™m sorry, okay? Iโ€™m scared. You canโ€™t hold on to me forever.โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t have to. Iโ€™m gonna hold on until help comes.โ€

โ€œI...My foot! Lu, somethingโ€™s got my foot! Itโ€™s pulling! You have to let me go! Youโ€™re not gonna die because of me!โ€

โ€œI would have died many times over if not for you, Ry. If Iโ€™m going to die anytime soon, it will be for you. Iโ€™m not going to let you go, ever. I wonโ€™t give up on you.โ€

โ€œOkay, Lucas.โ€

โ€œWe go together, Ry.โ€

Four hours earlier

โ€œCome on, Lu, we donโ€™t have all day!โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re right, we have all week. Let me sleep, Ry.โ€

โ€œGet up get up get up!โ€

โ€œFine, fine, stop throwing pillows at me! I said fine!โ€

โ€œSorry.โ€

โ€œHmph.โ€

Twenty minutes later

โ€œTook you long enough, Lu.โ€

โ€œShut up, Ry.โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t shut up, I grow up. And when I look at you, I throw up. Blegh!โ€

โ€œIf only you werenโ€™t such a Stand by Me fanatic.โ€

โ€œWhat? Itโ€™s a great movie, and you know it!โ€

โ€œAnyway, where to?โ€

โ€œUm, how about...do they have movie theatres here?โ€

โ€œOf course they do! Itโ€™s Great Britain, Ry, not a third world country.โ€

โ€œ...โ€

โ€œLetโ€™s just go.โ€

โ€œThe movie theatres are so nice here!โ€

โ€œDuh, Ry, I already told you, itโ€™s not a third world country.โ€

โ€œMega hush, itโ€™s starting.โ€

โ€œMega hush? What is that supposed to mean?โ€

โ€œIt means you need to do a mega hush. Shhhhhhhhhhh!โ€

โ€œYou are impossible.โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re even more impossible.โ€

โ€œWell, youโ€™re-โ€

โ€œSHHHHHHHHHHHH!โ€

โ€œOkay, okay.โ€

โ€œWhat next?โ€

โ€œAh, itโ€™s so bright out here.โ€

โ€œYeah. There's a thing right there. Itโ€™s called the sun.โ€

โ€œYeah, Lu, I know.โ€

โ€œSo, where to?โ€

โ€œHow about the ice cream shop over there? That looks good.โ€

โ€œAlright.โ€ย 

โ€œAh, this is so good. I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever had anything that could top this.โ€

โ€œNot even my grandmaโ€™s homemade ice cream?โ€

โ€œUhโ€ฆโ€

โ€œThe pain. It hurts, so much.โ€

โ€œHa-โ€

โ€œWhy...the groundโ€ฆโ€

โ€œYouโ€™re right, those cracks...MOVE, LU!โ€

โ€œOw, why did you shove me?โ€

โ€œSink-โ€

โ€œRY! NO!โ€

โ€œSlippingโ€ฆโ€

โ€œOh no, you must have hit your head on the table...thatโ€™s a big sinkholeโ€ฆโ€

โ€œSlippingโ€ฆโ€

โ€œIโ€™ve got you...Iโ€™ve got your hands, I wonโ€™t let goโ€ฆโ€

โ€œSlipping.โ€

โ€œRy, donโ€™t look behind you! Look at me. Looking behind you wonโ€™t help anything.โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t let me go, Lu. Donโ€™t drop me.โ€

Present

โ€œHey, just relax. Itโ€™s okay. Youโ€™re doing great. Iโ€™ve got you.โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t let me fall- you canโ€™t let me fall!โ€

โ€œI wonโ€™t let you fall, all right? Ow, your fingers...Stop looking down! Everything's fine, just hold on to me.โ€

โ€œItโ€™s s-s-s-so f-f-far down.โ€

โ€œItโ€™s gonna be okay! Do you trust me not to let you fall?โ€

โ€œYes...Ah! Iโ€™m slipping! Lucas!โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re not slipping, itโ€™s alright. Weโ€™re alright.โ€

โ€œIt...itโ€™s pulling me, Lucas! I donโ€™t know if I can hold on without bringing you down too.โ€

โ€œIf we go down, we go down together. We will come back together, as well. Geez, Ry, stop gripping my fingers so hard, you're gonna break emโ€ฆโ€

โ€œIโ€™m sorry, okay? Iโ€™m scared. You canโ€™t hold on to me forever.โ€

โ€œI...My foot! Lu, somethingโ€™s got my foot! Itโ€™s pulling! You have to let me go! Youโ€™re not gonna die because of me!โ€

โ€œI would have died many times over if not for you, Ry. If Iโ€™m going to die anytime soon, it will be for you. Iโ€™m not going to let you go, ever. I wonโ€™t give up on you.โ€

โ€œOkay, Lucas.โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t know if I can hold on much longer.โ€

โ€œT-thatโ€™s alright.โ€

โ€œOof.โ€

โ€œAre you okay, Ry?โ€

โ€œYeah, Iโ€™m fine. That was just a hard fall. Are you okay?โ€

โ€œI landed on my arm and...itโ€™s killing me. I think it might be broken.โ€

โ€œWhy did you fall with me?โ€

โ€œBecause I love you, Ry. You know that.โ€

โ€œYou love me enough to die for me?โ€

โ€œYes.โ€

โ€œHardcore.โ€

โ€œAlrighty, now how do we get out of this sinkhole?โ€

โ€œThereโ€™s a path, over there.โ€

โ€œWe canโ€™t follow that. It may be unstable.โ€

โ€œWell, itโ€™s not like we can climb out, can we? This hole is a hundred feet deep!โ€

โ€œThen weโ€™ll just wait for help.โ€

I apologize not only to all of you for reading this, but to the story itself, this is really terrible... I used "Write Now" story prompt cards to help me with this. Theyre really awesome!

Well, the plus point is that you achieved a tale using conversation only. The negative is that the story is a bit lame and forced.
