Drabble Challenge #71

Prompt: chicken

"Bok bok, ya chicken!" taunted Daniel's oldest brother.

His four older brothers had all braved the over-hanging cliff at the local swimming hole.

Gripping with his toes, he peeked over the cliff's edge. He chewed on his lip as he considered the jump. The water had to be a gazillion miles away.

"Bok bok," said his brother again. The other three chimed in with their own bok boks.

"I'll show them", thought Daniel. He jumped, did three perfect somersaults, followed by a big splash-landing.

His brothers stared in amazement, their mouths hanging open.

"Neener, neener," Daniel shouted, floating lazily away.
