Airplane B- Lila Age 12
Take off is beginning right now. The attendees will be around to close any d plates and to assure safety for all passengers. Thank you, we’ll be having a great flight. The intercom crackled and my ears felt like they were about to fall off.
I lurched forward in my seat, my sweaty fingers grabbing the seat. They slipped off as I took a quick glance outside the window. The sky was a calm blue with just a few clouds.
I turned back, trying to control my breathing. My phone buzzed five times but I was to scared to move. What if I did something to the airplane?
An attendee tapped my shoulder and I’m pretty sure I jumped a mile high. ‘’Your the girl traveling alone correct?’’ she asked smiling. I nodded. ‘’I’m Missy, I’ll be taking care of you’’ she explained.
‘’I’m Lila’’ I managed to squeak out. She let go of my hand and smiled again. ‘’Scared of planes?’’ she guessed showing off her perfectly white teeth. I swallowed. ‘’Yeah pretty scared. ‘’Terrified’’ I let out a spurt of laughter.
‘’Well this plane is the best of the best. Nothing will happen’’ she patted my shoulder and went over to another person. I pulled out my phone tapping on the messages. Mom: Hi honey are u on the plane?
Yeah, we just took off I shut my phone off and took a shaky breath. This wasn’t to bad. My ears were killing me though. Missy came back, looking a little pale. ‘’What’s the matter?’’ I asked my phone buzzing again.
‘’Seems like their’s a little problem with the engine’’ she explained. My heart skipped a beat. ‘’Maybe you could land’’ I suggested my voice high. Missy sighed. ‘’We can’t. We’re over the ocean.’’ I stared out the window and gulped.
‘’Just relax though, Captain is fine’’ she assured. I nodded and shut my eyes. Soon I was fast asleep listening to the soft hum of people talking.

‘’WAKE UP!’’ I heard somebody scream. I jolted awake, my heart pounding a million times per second. ‘’What’s going on?’’ I yelled. A guy with yellow hair in front of me turned around and yelled something. ‘’What?’’ I screamed back.
That’s when I realized the plane was falling. I grabbed my phone and tapped on Mom’s icon. ‘’Mom help it’s crashing!’’ I cried into it. Her voice was scratchy. ‘’I can’t understand you!!’’ I replied. Tears blurred my vision as it got harder to breathe.
I stared out the window, watching the ocean get closer and closer. ‘’Get the life jackets!’’ yellow man screamed. ‘’Where are they?’’ I shouted back. ‘’Under y-your seat!’’ he shouted. I bent over, my fingers shaking so bad I couldn’t even pick up the jacket.
I put it on, trying not to cry. I spotted Missy putting a jacket on and then buckled her self in the seat. Suddenly there was a huge bang and my head snapped backward. I screamed, as something cold rushed against me.
Water. We were sinking. I thrashed around in my seat, tears mixing in with the water. I reached for the buckle and clicked it, releasing my self into the plane.
I crashed into something. Pain seared up my side and then I was floating. Floating and floating...
