“Trustworthy! Trustworthiness!” Ricky sputtered. “Why is everyone always talking about that?”
Ricky forgot that Rachel looked like a princess. He became angry. He became so very angry that he decided to climb the shorter, darker tree right to the very top.
He grabbed the trunk with his hands and feet, and up he climbed. He climbed past the lower branches. He climbed past the middle branches. He climbed almost to the top of the tree. Then, he climbed out on a branch, just to show Rachel that he was not afraid.
The next moment, Ricky was falling. He was falling very fast. He was falling to the ground.
