We ran passed through a couple large bushes before coming to a halt. Of all the directions we could've gone, we ended up at a cliff. Ezra let go of my hand as he carefully approached the edge.
"There's a river down there."
"We're not jumping."
"It's either jump or have the psycho catch us. Have your pick, princess."
Carefully stepping towards the edge, I glanced at the river with currents that would make it extremely difficult to swim in. "There has to be a third option." I replied as I walked to where the bushes were.
Suddenly, Ezra grabs my arm and pulls me back. My eyes were millimeters away from a very sharp blade. If Ezra hadn't reacted fast enough, I would been gone from this world in a blink of an eye.
"Nowhere to go. Nowhere to hide." It's deep voice boomed as it took a step forward.
Ezra pulled me behind him as we slowly stepped closer to the edge. The giant in front of us stepped closer getting ready to swing again and this time he was determine to hit his target. Ezra looked over his shoulders as we took another step back.
In the moment the giant raised his ax, Ezra turned around and wrapped his arms around me. He held me tight against him and jumped.
