100 Word Stories

There is a writing contest to write a 100 word story. Here's one of the four ideas I wrote. I'm going to enter a couple others in the competition.

With deliberate focus, each foot reached for the next ladder rung. Higher and higher she climbed. Her hands barely grasping the railing as fear shook her from within.  Her purpose in attempting this kept her moving forward.  Finally, she reached the top and shuffled to the board’s end.  With her daughters watching her, she hesitated only a second and then jumped. Falling, falling, falling, wondering if she’d ever land — then splash! Her body shook as she pushed her way back to the surface. A full smile on her face.  She’d faced her fears. Now could her daughters face theirs?
