I wander over to the edge of the loft and toss another bale of hay down.

“Son! You’re awfully close to the edge there ... .”

I roll my eyes. “I’m invulnerable, Dad.”

Dad shakes his head in exasperation. “That’s no excuse.”

I shrug and grab another bale of hay. This time, however, I end up stepping over the edge instead of on it.

As I crash towards the ground I hear my Dad shout my name. Some instinct takes over and I try to break my fall like a normal guy would.


I stopped.

But I didn’t hit anything.

I slowly open my eyes and look down.

I’m ... hanging ... in the air ... .

I focus on my body. I don’t think I’m caught on anything.

I look down past my stomach ... .


I peek over my shoulder ... .


I look over into Dad’s shocked eyes as his knees give way.

I’m ... floating ... .

“Holy ... .”
