Delphine always wanted to pilot her father’s plane and when he forgot his keys on her tenth birthday, she knew that taking off would be easy.

Delphine was a spoiled ten year old with rich parents and her dad was a pilot.

She always wanted to fly his plane around the area.

On her birthday her dad lost his keys and she knew that today was her big chance.

She scavenged the house for an hour until she found them under her dad’s bed.

“THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!” Delphine shouted in excitement as she put on her jacket.

She started the engine and took off from her backyard. But after flying for a while the engine stopped and she plummeted into a mountain.

“BOOM!!!” She woke up from a dream in terror and decided never to fly a plane ever again.


This MFTS entry is from my step daughter Sarah. She is 10 years old and full of razor sharp whit. She has shown interest in taking up the baton here at our writing domain. So we support her efforts and look forward to more stories from her. – Danny (Read more Sarah Stories).
