A few weeks ago I climbed Mount Everest. Despite the clouds, I felt dizzy when I looked down. It was really frightening because I was on my own! Everything ached when I got to the top of it.

But as soon as I started to climb down there was an ice patch and I slipped… so I couldn’t grab on to anything. So the rope was snapping… it was on its last 25 stands but suddenly Jordan [my enemy] and cut the rope… but because I was wearing all my protective gear I was saved.

It looked so sad, so timid. The short minutes passed like long hours. It just froze, staring for all it was worth. I think he thought I hadn’t noticed him. He looked like a statue. Eventually, after a long silence, I flinched and the fox darted back into the rotting building which was once my beautiful home…
