Try to jump the last few feet to safety
Swinging your body forwards and backwards as far as you can, you try to build up enough momentum to launch yourself onto the side of the riverbank. With a final swing you let go and fly up into the air in a big arc, coming down to a nice soft landing right on top of the ratfolk’s head.
“Oof!” it complains “You didn’t have to jump on me, I was only having a bit of fun! Look! My whiskers are all bent! It took me ages to get them straight this morning.”
You tell the ratfolk angrily that you’ve you’ve half a mind to put a big twist in its tail too. It scurries away sulkily, muttering under its’ breath about stupid heroes who can’t take a joke.
You hear somebody clapping behind you. “Well done!” a voice says out of the darkness “You really taught that naughty ratfolk a lesson!”
