“The Eight Fears of Griffin Magrue”
The first time I died, my mother scolded me for being so foolish.
“How many times have I told you not to play by the river?” she said after they’d pumped the water from my lungs. “You’re grounded, mister.”
It wasn’t her warning that kept me from going back, but the terror I felt as my last breath bubbled away.
The second time was less frightening, but more painful. As I fell from the towering tree fort, I remember thinking that at least the impact should take me before I felt anything.
I was wrong.
