As the class piled off the bus to the rocky grounds of the Chi Mountains, the fish in the nearby river were swimming and the animals in the forests were waking up. Everything seemed perfect, and Jim knew that this was going to be the best trip of his life. He has been preparing for this trip for so long! And it was finally going to happen! The kayaking, the fishing and best of all, the hot air balloon ride! They were then going to camp near the river and have s’mores by a campfire.

Mrs. Roberts took the supplies out of the bus, and they set off! Mrs. Roberts was a tall woman, and she wore the strangest of glasses, and she seemed to never run out of new ones! She gave everyone in the class packs with notebooks and other supplies in them while they walked to a round patch in the ground, where a bright red hot air balloon was waiting.

Robert really wanted to go on, and he ran on board when Mrs. Roberts said “Children! You may now board the hot air balloon!” But Robert then found out he had a fear, a fear that he had never known about before. And as the hot air balloon started to rise, he shouted “Stop! I’m scared of heights!”

So the hot air balloon lowered itself and Jim slowly walked off, tears were rushing down his face as Mrs. Roberts came after him. “Jim,” she said “would you like to go on the hot air balloon?”

“Yes, but I’m scared of heights, so I’ll never be able to.” He replied.

“Well, you could close your eyes, and when we get up, you won’t be scared.” Mrs. Roberts whispered

“Fine, but once, only once.”

So they went back on, and Jim closed his eyes, and when he opened them, the hot air balloon was soaring above the beautiful landscape, and Jim’s fears went away so quickly he was running around and taking pictures in less than a minute. And after that, Jim was never afraid of heights again.
