She always knew the road could end.
Rickety throughout, it got almost impassable in places. It was a folly, she’d been told. A fool’s errand. Doomed to fail.
The way had never been fully completed, quite possibly never fully traversed. So many had abandoned it that there would be no rest stops, no soft places to lay one’s head.

Still, it was her path to take, her journey to attempt.
And when she faced the maw, the utter void of all support, she knew.
She could turn back.
Or she could leap.
