Four in the Morn

Restriction: No more than four letters a word.

“I can’t do this,” says Dave. “It’s not-”

“It’s fine,” says Jude. They are on the roof, the city wide and low. Dave sees Jude toss the butt of the jay over the side.

“This is dumb,” says Dave.

“It’s not dumb. It’ll work. This is what we paid for.”

Dave puts both arms out, and juts his toes over the edge. “How do you know it’ll work?”

“Have I ever done you a bad turn?” says Jude.

“Yes.”

“Don’t fret on it, then. Just do it.”

Dave says, “Fuck,” puts his foot out, and lets the fall take him.
