The Paper Airplane

Mercy has had mental disabilities for her whole life. Her dad was in the air force and died in a plane crash. But before her dad died, the last thing she did with him was make a paper airplane and fly it. In middle school she pays to go to a special school and take lessons to be a pilot. She has to hide her mental disability though because then the school would kick her out. she's now in the high school part of the special school, and she finds out she may just get to fly a jet.


8. Paper folds

   I wake up to Hills sitting in a hospital chair by my bed. "Hills!" I croak out, I try to sit up but find myself screaming instead. "Hush child." Hills says walking to me. "Whats wrong with me?" I say croaking out the words. "Surgery for your arm. Slight concussion. And a.. new.. leg." he says. I lift the blanket looking for my leg. Instead I find a metal structure running from my knee down. "I'm so sorry..." Hills says before I black out.


  I wake up screaming. memories hit me like a punch. May. Iraq. The plane. Did they even get my cargo? My mom comes over and holds my hand. We say nothing, we just sit in silence. "Did they get my cargo?" I say choking over my words. "Yes sweetie. You saved lives." she says grasping onto my hand.


  a month goes by. I'm soon taught to walk on my leg. It takes another month but I finally go home. Not school dorm room. But real home. I sit in my room and make the paper airplanes once again. fold after fold crease after crease. Within a year i'm fully recovered. I'm never going to fly again. But I visit Hills. He feels terrible. But I told him I was eager to do a misson. I just hope someday though I can go back to that sunny field and once again fold my first, new plane with my father.
