Facing Fears

Talon sighed and sat in the circle with his classmates.

He’d been setting up the rocket these past few weeks.

He’d been brave loads of times, but which event stood out the most?

Some of his classmates shared before it was his turn.

“I might be going into space one day. I think I’ve been brave preparing for this.”

Most of his classmates didn’t believe him though.

Talon continued, “I think it’s important to face our fears because fear gets in the way of progress and making new discoveries. I wonder what the first man to the moon felt when he first got to the moon.”

Mrs Robin smiled and nodded in understanding at Talon.

“Yes. He was probably nervous. Might have even had a headache.” said Mrs Robin, and the kids laughed.

“Bravery is important in order to face our fears. But some fears are healthier than others. They can keep us alive by avoiding dangerous situations.” Mrs Robin began to explain.

I'm inspired to become a writer, playwright & novelist. Recently published two books on Amazon. I'm looking for opportunities in performance writing and publishing short stories in literary magazines. I completed a BA in English and Creative Writing at university in July 2021.
