“Did you fall off a tree when you were a kid?” I ask. “Get pushed off a bridge?”

“What?” he asks, momentarily distracted. “No, why?”

“I don’t know,” I shrug. “I just thought that might be why you’re afraid of heights.”

“Always the writer,” he softly laughs. “Nothing as dramatic as that. I just don’t like them, never have.”

“But there has to be a reason,” I say. “I mean, no one is really comfortable with heights, but to beafraid of them− something had to have happened.”

“Did you ever get attacked by a herd of spiders when you were a kid?” he asks, raising one of his eyebrows in my direction. “Because I seem to remember finding you on a chair not too long ago, calling me and screaming that I have to come over because a daddy long legs was ‘eyeing you for lunch’.”

“That’s different,” I say, sitting up a little straighter.”
