5.0 out of 5 stars Great Short story!~ 2 April 2015
By Terri Babcock - Published on
The Climb, a short story by kirifox, is about a man named Jessie. He is the one person in his friends life that was unshakable. Nothing seemed to bother him. In fact he was so stable that his friends had dubbed him “The Old Man”. Jessie was the one who all of his friends went to for advice. Even the reoccurring dream that Jessie had about his dream man hadn’t shaken him any. That was until the weekend he, his best friend Dean and a group of other guys went camping.

Having already had the entire campsite set up by those who had already arrived, Jessie and Dean only needed to pitch their tents and enjoy the weekend. Unfortunately, the relaxing time that was supposed to have happened ended up spinning out of control in a maddening twist that left Jessie thinking he was going insane.

Dean, Fred, Gene and Jessie had went on a hike to see the summit of one of the mountains. When Dean fell and twisted his ankle, Fred offered to take him back down to camp leaving Fred and Jessie to finish out the hike. Unfortunately, a thunderstorm came out of nowhere forcing Gene and Jessie to take shelter in a small nook of a cave until it had passed.

Falling asleep, Jessie woke up with Gene gone, the day feeling like it was earlier than it was supposed to and everything at the campsite being completely different that what it was when he left. In place of the make shift kitchen and campfire that he and his friends had set up when they first found the clearing, Jessie was looking at a cabin instead. The trails were smaller and none of his friends were there.

Enter Josiah Whitaker. A mountain man who was from Jessie’s dreams. Yet as things started to unfold during their time together, it had appeared as though Jessie had went back in time and found the love of his life. Weeks passed with Jessie and and Josiah becoming close and falling in love until that one critical moment where they were about to make love for the first time. Jessie’s reoccurring dream startled him awake back in the cave with Gene asleep beside him.

Weeks passed and Jessie became more closed off to his friends to the point where he put walls up around himself. Finally Dean decided that just the two of them were going to go camping again in hopes to get Jessie to open up as to what was wrong. Feeling as though he had lost the love of his life or having gone insane, Jessie begrudgingly agreed and after the two got to the campsite all the questions that Jessie had had about what had happened were soon to be answerred.

The Climb is an amazing short story with so many twists and turns to it that even a short review can’t possibly give you the full experience of reading the story yourself. The interactions between all the friends as well as what happened during “the Dream” and then when Dean and Jessie went back to the campsite the second time is something you should experience for yourself. Ther ending is quite remarkable and makes you think about the experiances of your own life. Is Deja’ Vu’ real? Is it imaginary? Could dreams just be an alternate reality? I would highly recommend for you to pick up this story and read it!
