The voice came over the radio. “Ready to takeoff on a new adventure?”

But we did not know how the adventure would turn out.

How could we? No one knows. It’s a quest, a journey. Leaving it all behind, settling into the checkered seats, ready to relax. Our minds were only on the beach we were heading to. The crystal blue waters, the soft pink sand.

All of us on the same plane. Without a thought or a care in the world.

Just hoping to make it there in one piece.

Not expecting our lives to be thwarted by a well-meaning pilot. Who needed to land early, miles from our destination.

Looking back, it was the best thing. Our families were with us. We could escape. Vanish.

And we did.
