Rumble to the Rescue by Barry Penfold
75 Words Flash Fiction contest entry

The walk to the Twin Valley Bridge was an easy one. Almost like it was meant to be. A single step over the bridge railing and then one further step forward and Jim would plummet into the ravine. Certain death. Nothing in his pockets. A last deep breath . Ready.

The yappy bark turned Jim around. Rumble had followed him. Thank God.Thank Rumble.There was only one thing to do now. Take Rumble back home.
