I know some of you out there have read some of my other stories. As this is my 4th story that I am sharing. I was reading a story on this site and it made me think of something that had happened to me as a child one summer at the local pool.
One day I was at the pool having a good time. I must've been around 10 or so. I was swimming in the 5ft section where I usually swam. I had eventually got out of the pool and climbed up onto the wall. Well the wall was made of cement and went around the whole pool of course. I had got up on the wall and was actually standing on it, which I guess was rather dumb because it was pretty high up to be standing on. The ground below, behind the wall, was of course made of cement also.
I'm standing on this wall talking to one of my friends who was still in the pool. All of a sudden, I lost my balance and started to fall backwards. As soon as I lost my balance I thought "oh my god, I going to fall and crack my head open," and of course that's what probably should of happened from the height I was standing and the distance between the fall. I was like in mid-air and I remember a strange feeling of my body "twisting". Almost like it had shifted. And it felt like I was "floating" in the air and all of a sudden, I landed on my feet!
Let me tell you. I didn't think much about it that day. Except for the fact that I was glad I didn't crack my head open. But, let me tell you also, that I definitely should have. There was no way that I should not have gotten hurt standing at least 9 feet above the ground on a slippery cement wall with no shoes and slippery feet.
Something or someone was definitely watching out for me that day. I don't know who or what but I'm glad they were. If anyone out there is reading this, I definitely wouldn't mind some feedback on my story. Thanks for listening!
