Near Miss

My micro fiction piece for the Three Word Wednesday prompt this week.


 
Jeremy was lucky to walk away with just a sliver of wood from the sled as a reminder of his near death experience. Were it not for a freak twist of fate, his downhill slide would have ended in disaster. Instead, his friends all had a good laugh when he barely clipped the tree and flipped head over heels.

Interesting. Memories of childhood near-misses on snow and ice. Most children never think of them as "near-death experiences", so I get the feeling this person is a teenager.

I was envisioning the person in the story as late teens/early 20's, Mendur.
