1. Falling and Flying

I hovered above the ground, searching for something, someone, somewhere. I didn’t know what to look out for. All I had been told was that it would be green and leafy. Did they mean a forest like back home or were they on about something else, something native to this place, this new country?

With no idea other than that I had to land soon I plunged my body downwards. The sudden increase in speed made my ears pop and I felt dizzy and nauseous. I closed my eyes to block out the sight of the clouds and creatures which were whizzing past me. Please let me land soon, I prayed, please.

Remi looked up at the sky, hoping to see the plane carrying her best friend’s sister back to England. It had been a year since Becca had gone to Germany for the sandwich placement part of her university course and Daisy longed to see Becca again. Remi had promised to accompany Daisy to the airport to reunite her with Becca and to provide some moral support if the situation became too awkward.

“When’s the plane due to arrive?” Remi asked.

“Ummmm, I think it was about twenty past three,” Daisy replied, pushing up the sleeve of her faded blue hoodie to look at her watch.

“Okay. That means we have fifteen minutes before she lands. Do you want to go over to Becca’s terminal to meet her as she gets off?”

“Yeah, sure. That’s probably a good idea.” Daisy gave Remi a small smile as they began to make their way over to the airport and the plane terminals from where they had been stood in a field nearby.

They went through the gate that opened onto the road leading to the airport, slamming it shut behind them.

Thump! Thud! Crack!

Remi and Daisy spun round. What on earth could that noise have been? It sounded nothing like anything they had heard before. What met their eyes was a complete surprise.
