Renee had climbed pretty high when she heard them announce that they were about to select the champion, and she suddenly
felt the safety buckle behind her shake. It made her feel unsteady, like she was about to fall.
“Ten, nine, eight, seven…” The judge began to countdown, and everyone held their breath as they waited for the final result.
Unwilling to give up, Renee gritted her teeth and kept on climbing speedily.
“Three, two, one. Okay, let’s congratulate Adie and Abby’s family for winning this carnival!” The judge boomed, and everyone
