He risked his life to live.

7th SIX of my Novel in SIXes.

Ryan counted to six, single handedly.
Thumb, index, middle, ring, pinky, thumb.
He counted like a Latino counts.
Six seconds. A lifetime when falling.
Crossed arms. Pointed feet. Deep breath.
The Bridge of the Americas. Fitting.
He risked his life to live.
