Katie was never the adventurous type. She preferred to stay at home and finish her English essay or clean her room. Her whole world shattered when her mom told her that she was to visit her grandma in Australia, where on almost every corner there was a creepy crawly waiting for her. She faces many dangers and has to make some decisions that will change her life.


4. Turbulence

   Katie bravely took the flight attendant's hand and stepped onto the plane.  She felt a nervous chill ride down her spine, as she slowly strode down the aisle to seat 27A.  She hated flying.  And she just couldn't get Annabell's face out of her head.  Was she crying for joy because she doesn't have to see my face for a whole two weeks? Katie wondered, Or is she actually going to miss me?  She couldn't decide which to believe.

   Soon after that, Katie was flying across the Pacific Ocean.  And she was freaking out.  It didn't help that there were two whiny babies on their mothers' laps right next to her.  It's like they're having a cry-off!  Katie thought to herself, allowing herself one tiny hint of a smile before returning to the clamped down mouth, and closed eyes position.  She had been like that for most of the flight, trying to block out the constant nausea and head aches.  Then the pretty flight attendant walked up and asked what she would like to drink.

   "I'll - I'll take a Sprite please," Katie requested shakily, rising slightly to place her order while attempting a smile.

   "Are you okay, sweetheart?" the attendant asked, her attention drawn to Katie's pale face and sweaty brow.

   "Yeah, yeah, I'm fine," Katie assured the concerned woman as she mopped her face.

   "Okay, I'll get you that Sprite," she said before walking away reluctantly with a questioning look.

   Then the loudspeaker crackled to life.

   Hello ladies and gentlemen, this is your pilot.  Thank you for choosing American Airlines.  I am sorry to announce that there will be a bit of turbulence.  We have hit a slight storm, but it should be over quickly.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Thank you and enjoy the rest of your flight.

   Ten minutes later, the plane was still rocking back and forth violently.  When Katie looked out the window, she could see nothing but dark gray clouds with the occasional bright flash of lightning streaking across the stormy sky.  I can't stand even smooth sailing in the sky!  Katie thought weakly.  Much less turbulent flying!

   And then the lights flickered off.  Katie screamed, along with all the other passengers.

   One of the plane's wings was ripped off by an intense lightning bolt.  Everyone aboard the doomed airplane was grabbing for their oxygen masks, and Katie fumbled with hers.  She accidentally dropped it in the aisle, and had to fall to her knees as the plane went into the death spin.  As she groped around for the vital piece of equipment, she could feel herself growing weaker and weaker, in desperate need of fresh air.  Parts of the plane began to fall off when Katie finally managed to pull the elastic band over her head and gasped in the oxygen.  She tried to stand, but couldn't because of the massive amount of people in panic.  She stumbled around, trying to find a place to put her feet, but her whole world was people screaming, planes being ripped apart, and darkness.

   Then she fell out of the plane.
