Jason clung to the wall with no harness pressing himself to the wall and trapping her safely to it.
“Are you okay?” he asked worriedly, seeing her eyes flickering in and out of focus.
“No,” she said, her face turning white.
He could feel her trembling so much and then her arms and legs gave out as she collapsed. Students screamed but Jason took her full weight with him with ease.
“Grab her harness!” shouted the instructor and when nobody moved he lunged for the slack rope himself.
Jason slung her over his shoulder and climbed down to the floor.
“Is she dead?” someone asked.
Jason was busy removing the harness from her and he looked up at the worried look on Chantal’s face.
“Everyone class dismissed!” ordered the instructor trying to get his own heart beat to slow down.
The gym cleared of everyone. Jason took one more look at the wall before closing the door. None saw the indentations in the wall made by his fingers.
