The Balloon Story

Hot Air Balloon

Hot Air Balloon

Imagine your most favourite spot in the world or a place you like to visit.
At this spot, you are waiting to leave with a group of people on a hot-air balloon.  3 of you all won a trip on this balloon.  As you step into the balloon with the other 2 people you accidentally kick the rope that was holding the balloon to the ground. It suddenly lifts off the ground without the person who was going to take the 3 of you on the tour.
Tell about your trip with the 2 other people who you had never met before.  Who are these people?  Where do you end up going?  How do you make it back to safety?
We’d like to read your version.

    We were rising and rising and rising then it hit me wait maybe we could pilot it then I thought that’s impossible. Jack then said wait I have my cell maybe I could call a rescue squad I re plied we’ll all be dead goners by the time they get here. Then Joe said wait maybe we could try to pilot the hot air balloon how lets figure it out. Half an hour later. There we’ll be home in no time said Joe. Another half an hour later we’re home how did you get down here wait the balloon going away.

    My Crazy Trip

    As they lift off they relies the tour guide is not on board.
    “Oh no” Mia cried.
    Kate and Mellissa were terrified.
    “What are we going to do?” Kate cried.
    “I don’t know” Mellissa said.
    “Wait how do you lower the balloon” Mia yelled down to the tour guide. But they were to high in the air for anyone to hear them. All of a sudden it started to rain and they started to get wet. But they were all still trying to talk to the tour guide. “Pull on the string” the guy yelled up to us.
    “Kate Mellissa help me pull on the string” Mia said. Then the balloon started to lower. They were going down pretty fast, so they were all terrified. A couple minutes latter they were back on the ground with the tour guide.
    “Are you all okay” He asked.
    “Yes were fine” they all said.
    “Do you still want to go on the ride” He said.
    “ No way ” they all started to laugh…..

    The hot air balloon Trip

    In the wide open sky, I was kind of scared of falling because we were so high in the sky. Phil was freaking out so rushed to him and tried to calm him down, luckily he calmed down. We must have been 500 meters high. We were trying to make the hot air balloon go down me, Phil, Sarah and the rest of us were trying to find a good way to make the hot air balloon to go down. Eureka! I exclaimed.

    I told the cru my plan, my plan was this: we shot of the hot air machine then turn it on again, then keep doing that until we hit land.

      Shantel I think your story is a cool story but I don’t think that would actually work but it was very creative. It could happen but it might not work by turning the hot air on and off.

    I jumped on in a struggle as the balloon lifted into the air. The balloon’s captin ran towards the humongus air balloon as we all tried to grab him. Although it was to late we were already airborn. as we lifted high into the air the captin yelled “Follow the wind currents it’s the only way you’ll surrive!” We were so high up it was onley a faint
    little voice. “We’ll nice to meet you. As long as we’re stuck up here we might as well work together. Now who heard what the captin said. “Redgy here has really good hearing.” A guy in the balloon said. “He said we should follow the wind currents.” I asoomed they knew each other. Redgy was sitting down and he got up and controld the turner and we started slowly go down. “now that we’re down enogh” I said “we should find a current that will take us home.” “Wait a minute whats your name?” I pointed to the guy beside Redgy. Redgy stood up “Oh he doesn’t have a name.” Then slowly backed up right off the edge the before Inew it Ifell five feet away from my home every thing was perfect. then later that day I got a call from Redgy everything was fine.
