At the bottom
Peeking over the edge, you can see nothing but forest and scarce spots of water for miles out. The forest is alive with noises and movement. The hustle and bustle of this world's wildlife seems unimpeded by your arrival. Instead, it moves on and does as it should, as it must, and as it is, as must you. As you move closer to the edge, however, you lean a bit too far and topple forward down the edge of the steep pillar. The fall is cut short and you land in a trail cut away but water which carries you against your struggles toward a massive pool of water at the bottom. The scenery whizzes by you as you descend. Large mammals and small rodents, the likes of which you've never witnessed before, scurry and scamper from the edges of the pool as you crash into it. Deeply plunged into the shimmering water, you react violently as your instincts take over. Bone bends, flesh and fur too; muscles meld them to the task of swimming. Adrenaline now takes over and consumes your body; within the blink of an eye you've made it to shore. It takes a few moments for the adrenaline to run it's course and for calm to return.
