Drabble Challenge #79

Prompt: leap

"It's too far," the team leader said nervously.

"Are you sure?"

"No... not sure, but I'm afraid it might be."

"We've got to at least try it. We can't give up now."

"And if it's too far?"

"We won't know until we try."

"Yeah, but then it'll be too late."

"It's your call. We can stop now, if you want to, but I think--"

"WE NEED YOUR ANSWER NOW PLEASE."

The team leader hesitated briefly, then calmly spoke: "Mercedes Olivares."

The giant display lit up with a series of faces and films.

"EXACTLY SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION. BLUE TEAM WINS."
