Christine: Help me! I’m going to fall!
Asahi: You’re not going to fall. I’ve got you.
Christine: Sorry, I have a fear of heights. I sometimes have panic attacks when I’m high up off the ground.
Asahi: Okay, but we’re not very high up.
Christine: I know. My phobia is totally irrational.
Asahi: That explains a lot, like why you live on the ground floor of your apartment building and why you didn’t want to go hiking near the cliffs.
Christine: That’s right. I try to avoid any situations that will trigger my fear.
Asahi: So how do you travel? Do you ever fly?
Christine: The one time I flew in an airplane I experienced vertigo and I hyperventilated until we landed. I was really agitated because I thought I was going to die. It wasn’t pretty. That’s why I normally drive or take a train.
Asahi: So I’m guessing no skydiving for you.
Christine: Not unless you want to find out how my stomach reacts to heights!
