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.


2. Warriors in Air

  8 years later I stand in my small room I've been assigned to in the International Flight Academy School, holding the faded white paper plane from the country side I used to call home. A lot has happened lately. i'm 15 years old. This is my first year at the high school side of the school. After my dad died I decided to take my share of the army funds and peruse my dream, learning to fly. Mom is still in the old country house. We keep in touch. I have to pretend like I don't have mental damage so I can attend the flight school. so that's what we usually talk about.


   I turn around and let my eyes scan the room. Millions of paper airplanes line the walls and hang from the ceiling. I go over to my desk to work on my flight class homework. the question asks me what plane is used in combat against a starjet 450. Easy! acticon model 40! I write down the answer and close my eyes. in only 3 days I'll be taking a simulator test to see if im capable of taking a starjet out for flight practice. this will be my first time flying a plane alone. I'm absolutely siked for this.


   I open my eyes and smile. "Comines air cadet 300- Mercy Terner for take off!" I say mimicking the head air control teacher mr. Baxenwell. All I have to do is fly the stupid simulator and stuff like that. I say over and over in my head. I decide to take a break from homework and I grab a sheet of white computer paper out of my printer. I fold it into many complicated designs until it looks almost like a real starjet. I let it glide using no gas or propellers. Just the air. It goes the length of the room then it crashes into the wall and falls to the floor.
