I. His First Flight

—by Liam O’Flaherty

The Young Seagull’s Fear of Flying

The young Seagull was alone on his ledge (cliff). His two brothers and his sister had already learnt to fly. The young Seagull was afraid to fly because of the long stretch and depth of the sea. He thought that his wings will not support him. So, he ran back to his hole on the ledge. His father and mother tried to persuade him to fly. They scolded and even threatened him, that if he does not try to fly, they would let him die of hunger. But young Seagull did not move.

Parents Leave the Young Seagull Alone

Twenty four hour passed and no body came near him. All the day, the young Seagull watched his parents teaching his brothers and sister how to fly. The whole family taunted the young Seagull for his cowardice.

The Hungry Seagull

As the time passes, the young Seagull could not tolerate the hunger and the heat. He moves
closer to the ledge and pretends to fall asleep but nobody takes notice of him.
Only his mother noticed him. She was standing high on the plateau with a fish. As the young Seagull saw the food, he felt more hungry.

The Mother’s Trick

Realizing his madness for the food, his mother tried to tempt him with pieces of fish. Initially, she tore the fish in the manner the young seagull loved to eat. This sight maddened the young seagull. Then, the mother flew nearer to him which filled young Seagull with joy. However, the mother stopped near the edge of the ledge. Out of excitement and hunger, the young Seagull ran towards the mother and dived
for the fish.

The Joy of Flight

Initially, the Seagull was scared and screamed with fear when he dived. But soon he felt his wings spread outwards and he began to fly slowly downwards and upwards. He was no longer afraid of flying.

The Family’s Celebration

As the young Seagull landed on the green sea, his legs sank into it. He tried to fly again but he was tired and weak with hunger. Finally, his feet sank into the green sea, his belly touched it and he was floating on it. The family members praised him and offered him pieces of dog- fish as he had finally made his first flight.

II. The Black Aeroplane

—by Frederick Forsyth

The Narrator’s Trip to England

The narrator was flying his old Dakota aeroplane over France back to England at night. The sky was clear and moon was shining. He was dreaming of his holiday and looking forward to be with his family. It was 1:30 in the morning. He called the Paris Control to get
instructed about the way. Paris Control advised him to turn 12 degrees West.

Appearance of Storm Clouds

When the narrator reached 150 km beyond Paris, he suddenly saw huge storm clouds infront of him. He knew that it was not possible to fly up and over the clouds. He also did not have enough fuel to go around the clouds. First, he thought of going back to Paris. However, the thought of breakfast with his family, made him determined to fly through the clouds.

A Risky but Brave Decision

The narrator decided to take the risk and flew into the storm, but everything went out of control. He was unable to see because everything outside the plane was black. The
aeroplane jumped and twisted in the air. His compass stopped working. He tried to contact
the Paris Control for directions but his radio had also stopped working. Consequently, he was totally lost in the storm.

A Black Aeroplane Appears

Luckily, he saw another black aeroplane near him. The pilot in black aeroplane raised his hand and signalled the narrator to follow him.

Narrator Follows Black Aeroplane

The narrator followed the black aeroplane for about half an hour. Now, he could only fly the plane for five or ten minutes. He felt frightened again. But suddenly he saw two straight lines of lights ahead of him on the ground. They were the lights of an airport’s runway. He was able to land safely which gave him a sigh of relief.

The Black Aeroplane Remains a Mystery

After landing, the narrator went to the control centre of the airport. He asked the woman in the control centre about the mysterious plane. However, the woman told him that there was no other plane flying except his on such a stormy night. The narrator was surprised at this. He wondered who had helped him.
