Chapter 5

Sera Pov

I looked at the GPS to see forty two minutes left for me to reach Beddingham Hill. Literally, a smile is plastered on my face while I looked at the vehicles passing my car.

I looked back at my driver to see him concentrating on the road with a stoic expression on his face. I leaned against the side of my door relaxing a bit.

Today, I was going for Skydiving. I have been here in England for so many days and now when my work has just finished I wanted to explore and enjoy a little. So, finally, I decided on going out for adventure.

I have done skydiving beforehand but that was a few years back but I wanted to do again. I have been so busy these few years that I don't even remember when was the last time, I had an awesome memory.

So I made a to-do-list and here I am wanting to make a first cross line on the list. Skydiving.

"We are here!" the man said and I nodded excitedly to get down from the car. The car stopped before a building and I knew it was where I needed to be for an amazing experience of skydiving.

It was 'Feel like flying Gliding Club'. They had certified instructors and they would be guiding me. I entered the building and went using the sign board I reached the floor of the club. A receptionist was sitting and I went to her.

She smiled at me and asked me my name to which I replied and she checked her computer of my details.

"Oh yes! Here" she gave me a paper and I took it.

"What's this?" I asked.

"Its the confirmation letter that you want to do this" I nodded and after reading the paper properly, I signed it.

"Okay! You are in group C. There will be three women and four men in your group including you. The others are already in the training session. You need to train the basics before you could paraglide" she said and I nodded.

"And after the training session you have to sign another legal terms and condition," she said.

"But you need to complete the payment now," she said and I nodded reaching for my purse.

"Would you like to pay using cash or card?" she asked and I replied "Credit card."

"Do you have a membership card?" she asked and I shook my head no.

"I hope you have a great experience from our club," she said smiling and I replied with a "Thank You" before leaving.

After paying, I walked to the elevator and went down and walked out of the building.

I was supposed to walk back of the building where the club had their own training center. The weather was nice today and I hoped I could fly up there into the clouds already.

When I reached there I was asked by an instructor to be trained alone as the other people in my group already had their session.

I trained hard and made sure to remember every single thing the instructor told me. I never feared height, in fact I loved height and it made me want to fly and go even higher if it was even possible.

After the session, it was finally the time for me to sign the contract in which it was written that 'I was doing this on my own risk' etc.

Next, they made me wear the special suit which was specially characterised by different materials processing for performance, it was resistant to strong breeze and it had adjustments for motion performance.

Then I was re-checked by the professional for any problem and when I had none I was asked to take the club's cab which would take me to the runway for the flight.

Once, reaching the runway I saw the people whom I guessed that they were of my group already there.

I walked to them although it was little difficult as I was wearing the suit still I managed and reached them.

"Hey! Are you in our group?" a woman asked and I nodded smiling at her.

"Great! It will be fun! I am so excited. It's our turn already" she said excitedly which made the other woman laugh at her.

I looked to my right and sure enough, there were four men busy talking with each other. I couldn't see some of their faces as they were standing with their back facing me.

I stood among the ladies and we had a little chat before we were asked to get on the plane.

It was finally our turn.

It took less than twenty minutes to be up in the air. Though I had already done this before, still I felt my heart beat rising every second we went higher.

"Okay! I am nervous" the same lady whom I talked to beforehand yelled because it was impossible to hear her because of the breeze.

"Please wear your mask on," the instructor said and we nodded.

I was just going to put my mask on when I saw the man across me already looking at me.

"You!" we both yelled in unison pointing a finger at each other.

"I can't believe this" I muttered irritated to myself seeing him after all these days.

It was the same arrogant asshole of a billionaire whom I met on that train and after that on my building's elevator.

"Ugh! Just my luck" I thought.

Whenever I think I would never meet him I do and in an odd situation.

He glared at me and I gave him a sarcastic smile. I knew he wanted to yell or give rude comments to me at the moment but the instructor butted in asking us to get ready.

I decided on avoiding him. I mean I don't particularly know him and it isn't compulsory for us to talk to each other whenever we meet.

So I wore my glasses and checked my backpack once again before inhaling deeply. We were going to jump from a height of 15000 ft and it was not something easy to think of at the moment. It was time for us to jump one by one and a man jumped first out of the plane of whom we were to follow.

The woman from before gave me a thumbs up before jumping off the plane. I laughed excitedly and made my way to the opening. I looked down and gulped but counted up to three before closing my eyes and jumping off the plane screaming.

The breeze hitting my body and I tumbled in air few times before I handled my breathing and finally I looked around and savor the moment. The freefall was amazing. I was falling speedily so I sprang my arms and legs to have a bigger surface to slow down.

I was pushed into the clouds and the chilling air and I was amazed how I didn't hit any bird up there. I saw my group and decided to fly towards them. They were holding hands and were falling making a circle of themselves.

As taught beforehand, I put my arms close to my body and just tried to fall towards them and it happened. My body flew towards them and they welcomed me by holding my hand and we all did a 'Ringa Ringa Roses' up in the air.

Finally, it was time for us to open our parachute. I saw as the others opened their parachute and they were now flying away from me because of the wind. I was just going to open mine when I saw him.

The fact that he was struggling with his parachute made me little worried. He was totally in a problem. He was struggling and suddenly he began to rotate in the air because losing the control.

I made up my mind and I knew we both have few minutes left to end. So I did what any other person in my place would have done. I fell towards him and almost immediately tried to help him. He seemed astonished at first but later he understood that I was just trying to help.

His parachute wasn't opening and seconds later I was worried too. So, I asked him to hold onto me and surprisingly he did by wrapping his arms around my waist and I opened mine.

I knew he was having trouble hanging onto me but he had to if he had to survive. Our speed suddenly became lot calmer and I saw his eyes closed as if scared that he would fall.

He was no holding on to my lower half of my body and I knew he couldn't hold longer. So I reached for his parachute straps and pulled it harder and it worked.

In a blow, he was pulled away from me by the wind by his giant parachute. He flew away from me and I sighed in relief seeing him safe.

I took this as the moment to look around and to take in the scenery. It was lot calmer now. From chaos to calmer. I sucked in deep breath and enjoyed my moment before I landed safely on the ground. The experience was incredible and the feeling was unexplainable.

This is what I had always wanted. Amazing memories to held as possession.
