The gate had long been sealed. For years it had served to bring ships in and out of the city. But that time was long over. It's new adornments rendered it useless. And sealed away with it were a young man's dreams of adventure and freedom. And so he stood. And so he watched. And so he climbed. And so he jumped.
I like the little back story you've added to this! Fantastic work!!
Thanks so much! I wasn't sure if the story was going to be able to get the message across correctly. I had something longer in mind...
