“Are you sure we have to take this helicopter tour?” Glenda asked her husband Ralph.
“How can we pass up a chance to do a helicopter tour of LA half-priced?”
“The pilot seems to fly jerkily. I’m worried he hasn’t enough experience and there were dents on the side of the helicopter.”
“I’m fully qualified and have been flying since the Gulf War,” Eddie the pilot said offended.”You two have no idea the battles I’ve flown through.”
“You’ve offended the pilot Glenda. You should apologize, you’re afraid of heights,” Ralph muttered.
Suddenly, the helicopter went sideways before nose diving between high rise buildings. Both Ralph and Glenda screamed.
The helicopter landed on pavement with a crash. Eddie managed to somehow land the helicopter rightside up. The couple were surprised to be alive with only a few scrapes.
“Eddie are you alright?” Ralph asked, unbuckling his seat belt and taking off his cans.
He shook Eddie but winced, a shard of glass had sliced into Eddie’s head; he was dead.
“Ah Eddie, you shouldn’t have been up in that sky.” Ralph said sadly.
