Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Flight

Welcome to Friday! It's time for this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction. Are you excited? I'm excited. This week's prompt is flight. If you'd like to learn more about Five Sentence Fiction, or give it a try yourself, just visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Enjoy!

So, it had come to this. There was only one way to be sure if they were real. No one else seemed to see them but her, and if they were right, if it was all in her head, then she didn't much care if she hit the pavement. 
She took a deep breath and stepped off the roof, screaming with terror at what she'd just done as she plummeted toward the ground. She threw her hands in front of her face and that's when the wings that no one else could see unfurled and stretched, caught the wind and lifted her into flight. 

Voila! I hope you liked it! I want to note right now, that this is just a story. It's not meant to be symbolic of depression, suicide or anything like that. Instead, it's merely a flight of fancy, of our imaginations being much more real than we realize. That said, I hope you enjoyed it and it inspires your own imagination to take flight. (Sorry to hit you over the head with it, but I've had a few previous stories really misinterpreted).
