The Rooftop

“And it has to be done from the roof? You’re sure?”

I couldn’t believe we were standing here debating this. “That’s what the calculations say. The transmitter has to go on the roof over Gable’s bedroom or the broadcast won’t be intercepted.”

“Yeah, I know. But… the roof!”

I glanced at the roof, then back at Jeremy. “Are you scared of heights?” I demanded.

He didn’t answer, just stared at the roof.

“You’ve got to be kidding! You win the wall-climbing challenge every time, always beating the fastest times.”

“Because I have to!” he shouted. “The faster I get up there, the faster I can get back on solid ground again.”
