A woman looking for respite from noise, champagne, and tensions with her boyfriend steps out to clear her head. She calls out that she’ll be back shortly and heads down the quiet neighborhood street...

and never comes back.A man with too much to drink and too fast a car roars by on that same darkened street and, in a flash of motion and impact, is stunned to see the face of a startled woman smashing into his windshield. When the car stops, he shakes in silence, waiting for...

something.But no one approaches, no cars go by- no inquiring lights go on. The noise of distant parties continues uninterrupted, as if this surreal event hadn’t just happened. He peers out the shattered glass but sees no stirring in the darkness- he cannot even see her in the gully below. And in a moment of irrational fear and panic, he makes the unfathomable decision to drive away and never look back.“She Tumbled Down,” a short story by longtime Huffington Post contributor and author (After The Sucker Punch) Lorraine Devon Wilke, follows the ripple effects of this tragic hit-and-run, attempting to answer that unanswerable question, “who could do such a thing?

From that first fateful moment through months and years that follow, the narrative weaves through the lives of seemingly disparate characters, threading that initial event into another story, a love story, that ultimately links to the tragedy in unexpected ways.
