“Twenty pounds says Sarah won’t worry about us heading towards those railings, another twenty says your Amy will.”
Chuckling “what makes you so sure it won’t be the other way? Amy is far from the over-caring girlfriend.”
“It’s got nothing to do with being over-caring, you up for it or not?”
“Sure, but if you’re right you have to explain yourself.”
A few steps from the railing, Daniel felt his phone vibrate once, the agreed signal from Amy, an indication that she needed his help at a party. Spotting her not too far from the patio door, she didn’t seem to be in any distress, judging from her muted gestures, however, she definitely wanted him inside.
Charlie laughed, Daniel smiled as they headed back in.
“It’s simple really, Sarah knows I am scared of heights.”
“So she just assumes you won’t do anything stupid?”
“Not assumes, but trusts in my love for her, in my responsibility to that love. Took a lot of forbearance to get there though.”
