I tried to wait for a couple of minutes, hoping my land lady come by and check on me, like she always do. Then moments passed and I started to get impatient. I looked at my surroundings. Everything was becoming uneasy. The awful smell of my cat's feces was suffocating. The temperature was getting warmer. I thought that I could lose my consciousness when I continue to breathe into this. I had to take an action. Panic was already consuming me.
I tried thrice to pull myself on to the concrete dividing me and the other apartment. I looked down from my position how high I was from the ground, from the wall decorated with pieces of broken glasses, which surely can cut me. I went down again and grab this small stone I used to expoliate. I told myself: "This is so divergent! I'm on an aptitude test"
I hit the glasses using the small stone to clear some space for my hand to hold. When I got a decent portion, I collected my courage. This was it. I need to jump. I tried to recall all those science videos I watched on Youtube. I tried to remember my lessons on physics regarding free fall. I tried to analyze everything as I could, before plunging to this dangerous act.
When I looked again, more than 5 feet above, I saw pieces of glasses on the grass. I needed to push myself a little bit to avoid those sharp objects below. I had to maneuver my body with the least impact and the safest landing possible. Then I dived for the longest two seconds of my life. I landed my right foot first on the ground flawlessly. I was delighted I made a good jump. After a split second, my left foot ache so hard I can't bare the pain.
My eyes started to mist but I needed to stay focus. If I cry, it won't help. The sun was burning my skin and the dirt was rubbing over me. I tried to walk but I can't, so I crawled. I crawled to find help, but there wasn't any.
A couple of meters away, there was still no help. There were two men from a junk shop. I tried to call there attention, but they just stared back to me. There were people few yards away, just looking at me. Everything was horrifying. I was about to lose hope then help came. Next thing I knew I was inside my land lady's car, heading to the hospital. I was still in pain, but I felt a relief. Finally.
