"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

Foto-story Friday #13-- another Guy and Girl story


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

Back in April I told you a story.   This will have to be considered another chapter in the "those who have" story......  
The Guy and the Girl have taken friends out for some fun on the trails.  Both bikes are being ridden double and seeing as they are the courteous type, they give the friends the big one and take the little one for themselves.  All goes well, they ride all over, up and down hill and dale.  There are some great hills {like the above pictured} in their normal stomping, er, riding grounds.  The Girl and the Guy have taken this trail many times both alone and double on the big machine.  The Girl hesitates and asks:  "Do you really think we can take this hill double on this bike?"  The Guy assures her they will make it.  She is still not sure but gets a nice tight grip on the bars and squeezes her eyes shut.  They make it quite a ways up when it starts to bog down, no problem, the Guys down shifts and keeps her running.  Soon she feels them slipping and sliding down!  The Girl's eyes fly opens in time to hear:  "I've got to stand up, our front wheels are not on the ground!"  Like she has a choice!  He stands and she flings off the back end!  The Girl makes a few summersaults, her glasses become air-born and her biggest worry is weather or not the machine is rolling after and how to find the much needed glasses before getting smunched!  The Guy calls out: "Are you OK?"  She thinks, 'He must be OK and he must have the bike under control...'  "Yeah, I'm alright, a little dirty," she hollers back as she dusts off and gets back to her feet.  The friends?  Um, yeah, they are waiting at the bottom watching in shock!  The Guy laid it over on its side to avoid the bike chasing the Girl down.  The couple right the machine and walk it {.... well, there might have been some pushing too ....} up the rest of the hill.  The friends, they chicken and don't take it double!  The friends doubled back up, upon reaching the summit and the group rides off to conquer another trail.  
There were bruises that the Girl sustained, as well as this pictured scrapped up elbow. How does it look today?  
Not too bad, still a little pink. Think it may just be a badge of honor for the Girl!
Happy 4-wheeling to you all!
