Faith took a deep breath as she secured her parachute and got ready to jump. I’m okay, she thought. I’m only 10,000 meters in the air and I could die. She put one foot out of the plane but then…

Her parachute came off!! She was in mid-air waiting to die. But she couldn't, she had kids to look after. They needed her and now this is the end for her.

The plane gave a jerk, and she stumbled backwards, landing on a pile of harnesses. The plane began to tilt downwards, and Faith slid out the open door, along with the tangle of straps and buckles. She toppled down, plunging towards the earth as if through water. She grasped the string to release her parachute, deploying the folds of colourful silky material. But as she drifted towards the grassy plains stretched beneath, her previous fear was snuffed like a flame.

Faith gazed at the scenery before her. It was magical. She had never been this high up before, and Faith was finding it very hard for her to process this. She tilted her head up and saw the amazing colours of the parchute flying about, as if the colours of the rainbow had been let free. Her timid brother, Max was coming down towards her. Suddenly, Max crashed down onto her parachute, deflating it. She was falling to her death!

As they hurdled towards Earth the wind forced her to hold her breath and Faith and Max toppled towards the blue and green sphere. Faith had read that memories pass into your head moments before you die but instead all she could see was the sea as it slowly came close to her. Wait, slowly? she thought and looked up to see.......
