The Great Leap Toward Bravery

Once upon a time, there was a stupid Japanese kid called Keishiro in Newcastle, Britain. He was about 8 or 9 years old and he always wanted to do something heroic to earn some respects from cute girls.

 One day, he went to a school camp called “Robin Wood”. There were lots of exciting activities, and his favorite was called “JUMP!” All you needed to do was to get a rope for your safety and just jump off from the top of a tree and get a stick hanging from another tree.

 When the teacher told the kids how to do it, only Keishiro was as excited as a kid who saw his first sexy pictures. Then the teacher asked who would want to go first, and Keishiro was the only one to raise his hand.

 He felt really scared when he was climbing. It was much more thrilling than walking into a girl’s bathroom for him. When he went to jump, he thought he could make it and there was no fear at all. Then he jumped off the tree like a frog and reached his hands toward the stick. His right hand touched the stick, but he couldn’t quite grab it.

 The bravery to challenge things that seem impossible or scare the shit out of you could come out of you when you least expect it. Keishiro thought it could be dangerous, but he felt really proud of himself afterwards. If you don’t want to be a sissy forever, just do it.
