Summer Gathering Preview
“This is crazy.”
“This is crazy?” Anna snorted, “You clearly never met us.”
“Hey! Don’t bully my Alex!” Jack screeched.
“Get off of me you freak!”
Seven pairs of feet, dressed in old navy flip flops, came to a halting stop at a cliff. Not just any cliff, a large cliff, a high cliff, a cliff that can make a grown man piss themselves in fear.
Nathan, Mitch, Cameron, Jack, Della, Anna, and Alex peered over the edge in anticipation, fear, and regret.
“Alright, listen up, losers!” Mitch screamed loudly as he climbed onto a flat rock behind them, “Today, we will achieve victory! We will jump off Piss Cliff with our heads held high and our swimsuits wedged all the way up our asses!”
“Yeah!” Nathan and Jack cheered.
“We will conquer this cliff and we will become men!”
“Yes! Preach it!” They cried out as the others just watched in confusion embarrassment.
“Alright! Let’s go jump as a family!” Mitch finished, leaving Jack and Nathan cheering like their lives were on the line.
Mitch walked over to the edge and peered over, he was struck silent at the nauseous height between his feet and the cool water. He suddenly started to regret the idea. Completely.
Mitch has done some messed up shit in his time, but this was probably one of the most stupidest idea he has ever had.
“Who’s gonna go first?” Alex asked and there was silence.
“Obviously, Mitch is going first. He is our leader we—!” Before Jack could finish, Mitch was already heading in the other direction, “Yeah, good luck with that guys!”
Cameron was quick to grab his brother before he could disappear, “You can’t run, Mitch. You came up with this idea and dragged all of us along promising five bucks to each and everyone of us.”
Mitch licked his lips, “Yeah, well I change my mind.”
“No way, you little shit!” Anna shoved Mitch towards the edge, “We walked all the way up here and the only way to get down is through there.”
Anna was obviously someone you didn’t want to mess with. She’s two years younger than him, and she isn’t afraid to call him a little shit. In fact, Mitch admits that she’s intense, and she scares everyone if you get on her bad side.
Maybe inviting Anna was a bad idea.
“Guys, let’s talk about this.” Mitch laughed nervously, “I was kidding. I didn’t think you would all go through with it.”
“Wait—! Do you guys hear that?” Anna looked surprised, and then she smirked, “I hear a chicken.”
Della snickered and Nathan held back a laugh.
Mitch snapped a glare at Nathan and he just shrugged, “Sorry, man.”
“I’ll jump, but to make things more interesting… L-Let’s play a game! A game, yeah!” Mitch quickly moved away from the edge.
Della raised a brow, “What kind of game?”
Mitch was lost in thought, and then he smiled deviously; he knew the perfect plan.
Minutes later, all seven of them were gathered around a mountain of dirt that was supporting a stick.
“Are you serious?” Nathan asked, a little surprised Mitch wanted to play a game that he absolutely sucked at since he was five.
“Come on, losers, or are you guys the chickens now? Scared you’ll loose?” Mitch mocked.
That was when Anna kicked a whole section of the mountain away and Mitch was struck silent, “Alright you chicken shit, your turn.”
There was literally nothing left to keep the stick up if Mitch were to take a section of it off, “… Fuck.”
“What? You forfeit?” Anna smirked.
Della crossed her arms across her chest with a smug smile, “Oh, and remember the rules, Mitch? If you forfeit, you have to jump off the cliff… naked.”
His eyes widened, why were they all picking on him? What did he do wrong?
“Hey Anna, sing it… Come on, sing Let it Go. I know you want to.”
“Anna, give me forty bucks, and I won’t leak this photo of you going through an embarrassing Twilight stage.”
“Looking nice, Della. I like what you did to your face, the flour really suits you. Smile for the camera!”
Mitch swallowed non-existent saliva as he began to sweat. He was beginning to take back everything he has ever done to the two girls, “Can’t we all just be friends?”
It wasn’t long for Mitch to be standing on the edge of the cliff holding his swimming shorts against his crotch. He was butt naked, and he could hear Nathan taking a photo.
He scowled, “Nathan, I swear.”
“Don’t worry, bro. I’m just going to send it to your ex-girlfriend. I’m sure she will enjoy this.” Nathan assured him, which wasn’t really that assuring at all.
“Jump! Jump! Jump! Jump! Jump!” They hollered loudly.
The worst part was, where Mitch was going to land, was where the cottage was. He was going to jump off the cliff completely nude, and probably loose his clothes in he process of falling. Everyone was down there, on the patio, waiting for one of them to jump.
His mom was down there and his dad—!
“You’ll be coming down that hill with your tail between your legs and shit pouring out of your trunks, kid.”
That was what his father told him before the seven took off for the cliff.
His old man wasn’t going to get the best of him. He was going to jump off Piss Cliff proudly, like a man, and prove to his old man that he wasn’t a chicken shit. And what else is the best way to prove it by doing it nude.
“Lets do this.” Mitch tossed his trunks aside and their cheering stopped.
“Don’t you want your clothes?” Cameron has a concerned expression on his face. He knew very well that Mitch wasn’t exactly the very sane person among them.
Mitch convinced Cameron to play hockey without a damn helmet, what the absolute fuck?
He was dumb enough to listen, and after that, he never took advice from that fucker again.
“Holy shit, chicken shit is jumping off nude and he isn’t bringing his clothes with him!” Anna laughed, “This is insane.”
“I really think you should work on your squats, Mitch. Your ass looks flabby.” Nathan stated, and Della laughed, “Stop looking at his ass, you boob.”
“God, cover up.” Alex ground and Jack was quick to cover his sixteen year old eyes, “Don’t look Alex! It’ll scar you!”
“Get off of me!” Alex struggled to push Jack off of him, “I don’t want to be apart of your sick incest fantasies!”
“Are you sure about this?” Cameron asked a final time.
“Yes. I’m going to show that old man who he’s messing with!” Mitch stated loudly. With hesitation Cameron started the countdown and everyone joined in.
“5!” Jack took Alex into a bone cursing hug.
“4!” Della climbed onto Nathan’s back and he gave her a piggyback ride.
“3!” Anna was taking multiple photos with her camera.
“2!” Cameron bit his lip back, concerned for his brothers safety.
“1!” Mitch spread his arms wide and he jumped. He flew for about two seconds like a majestic nude eagle, before he began free falling straight towards the water.
He was screaming as he was falling, he grabbed his cock to protect it from the pain he was about to receive, with a screech that sounded like it came from a cliche horror movie he collided with the water.
There was a girlish squeal, and then there was a splat. It sounded like a fly being squatted; instant death.
The remaining six peered over the cliff cautiously.
“You think he’s alive?” Della asked.
“I think so—!” A body submerged, “Oh nope, there he is.”
“Is he dead?” Anna frowned.
“Probably.” Jack nodded.
“It’s a pity.” Nathan shrugged, “He was a great sacrifice.”
“You guys want ice-cream?” Alex spoke up and there was a few nods and agreements. They all began to make their way down the cliff; using the safe way.
“I can’t believe he actually jumped.” Anna laughed, “Man, he’s such a chicken.”
“You do scare him.” Della reasoned as she stayed glued on her brothers back.
“Yeah, that’s why he’s such a chicken shit.”
“Actually, Anna, everyone is scared of you.” Nathan chuckled.
“What?” Anna screamed, “Is that why the cute guy at the hot dog stand never called me back?”
“No, he just didn’t like you.” Jack shrugged.
Cameron picked up his brothers remains and carried it all the way down the cliff towards the ice-cream parlour a few miles down by the beach.
