Sophitia continued to stare at Sophitia, wondering what she should do.
'I have no choice! I must try to pull her up!' The Sophitia hanging from the ledge accepted her twin's logic; no one would let go of the only thing preventing them from falling to their death, and the more she delayed, the more likely that she either lost her grip, or the ledge collapsed. By pulling her up, she reduced the weight on that one part of the ledge, and gained back the use of her other arm.
"Alright. I'm going to try and pull you up!" She yelled down to her double. "Try not to move too much!"
"A-alright!" The lower Sophitia was glad her doppelgänger had seen reason. Now they only had to be careful with how much they moved. Slowly, Sophitia tried to lift up Sophitia to were she could grab the ledge. As she rose higher, Sophitia attempted to reach out so she could grab it as soon as possible.
It wasn't to be.
There was a loud crack, as the piece of the ledge Sophitia was hanging to broke away, right when the other Sophitia's fingers were mere inches away from grabbing on and pulling herself up. Both women shrieked as they suddenly found themselves falling into the abyss below, with no hope to save themselves.
