No one looked up at this time. And after another day pretending to fit in, this was the time where she could let go, where she could be just a bit more of herself.
She raised her hands over her head and braced herself for the dive-roll. When she stood again, she popped her neck, and she took a few long strides before reaching the edge of the building and leaping off once again.
