Tales of a Clumsy Girl

“I tried but even when I try, I can only walk this fast,” Mansi said a continued her scuttle.

“If you walk slowly, you can balance yourself if you are falling. Also, you can lift your feet a bit higher. Lower chances of falling,” he said.

“I maybe clumsy but I don’t fall that often,” she turned and wagged her finger at him.

“Okay. I believe you,” he said and a smirk occurred on his face.

“Wha…” Before she could ask, her feet were tangled in the thick wires lying on the ground. The wires were half-an-inch in diameter and were coiled in large circle over and over again. Her foot got stuck in one open loop and she lost balance.

He held her and brought her back to her feet.

“Don’t say a word,” she said and started walking faster.
