Air Traffic Control, What's Out There?

O.K. here is an experiment of a Short Story in the making.

(below the story you can find 'The Making Off'.)

Actually it might still be a little to Short
for a Short Story it's just the 'Raw Diamond'
or piece of Coal or whatever you want to call it....,

Anyway, here it is, it's titled:

Air Traffic Control,
What's Out There?

The Red sports car came around the corner with great speed,
people walking on the side walk - blinded by the sun reflecting
in the windshield - nearly had time enough to jump away to escape.
Than with the tires making a high pitched sound the car came
to a sudden stop while making a terrible screeching noise
crashing against the ladder I was standing on.

Than in a flash I looked at the ladder under me that was
launching me through the air like a rocket in a direction
that I didn't yet know. I was flying in the air and like
a cat that can turn himself around in the air when falling
to be able to make a perfect landing, I was trying to do
something similar. The speed that I was falling with was
making me notice how the wind was blowing against my skin,
making me feel like a fighter plane pilot that just
ejected from his plane. I was wondering about what advice
birds could give me in this situation, 'flapping my wings?'
that didn't seem to be working for me that well. Lets think,
lets think real quick! Oh.., aaaaah..., Yes! I need
to 'Glide' towards that tree!

'O.K. lets - hug - the tree now', 'Ready for impact...!'

How do you ever prepare for something like this, I do
think that I need to rely on my instincts

'YES' 'The Eagle has Landed!'

'NO' 'The Eagle Slides!!!'

'YES!' 'I am hanging in the branches of the tree!'

'Naaaaa' I am falling to the ground with my hands pointing down!
'Huh....?' my hands touch something in mid air! What on earth
is happening? Now with my hands I am leaning on something in
the air, with my feet still hanging in the tree! What just
happened? What am I leaning on? It looks like a UFO, Yes it
must be a UFO, without a shadow of a doubt it really looks
like an UFO! Sure I have been rescued by tiny aliens! no it's
much to small for a UFO, You see it's just a street lantern.
O.K. so far so good, I am standing on my hands with
my feet in the tree, now 'hug' the street lantern,
While grasping for air I just make a swing and Yes,
hanging on the lantern now.

Pffff..., I do think that it's time for just a little rest,
relaxing a little hanging on a street lantern. What shall I
do now, read a newspaper?, already read it this morning,
Stock Markets Dropping, Mmm, don't like the word dropping!
Shall I reach for my cell phone and call somebody? Now some
of the people that where walking on the side walk that where
barely recovered from their own jumping away adventure came
to help. Hanging there with my feet hanging down, my feet felt
something, near the top somewhat halfway the lantern was
a sign that indicated that there was a side walk. When I put
my feet on it, I noticed that I could slide down, now only
hanging halfway the lantern only making it a small jump. At
the same time the people from the 'side walk incident'
came to help me to make a soft landing.

'The Making Off'

To come up with ideas for Short Stories, for finding possible
'writing Prompt' I came up with the idea to read
a Newspaper to look for titles and articles to get a little
inspiration, I read something about the Stock Market falling
down..., and

I just started with writing about what
I wanted to write like this:

I just want to write a compelling Short Story
that people can enjoy reading.

So to be able to do that I think that I need
at least some basic things to aim for to be able to establish
something like that:

So I have thought about some random boundaries:

1) first of all I want to make it somewhat spectacular just
as with James Bond movies, so I will begin with a spectacular
action opening making people wonder 'What is Happening'
and what will come next
Just as I wrote about in
The Secret To Writing Success.

2) than there has to be some sort of time pressure
somebody falling down from a cliff or something like that,
in his way down, (read in the Newspaper about
the Stock Markets dropping.)

3) than I want it to have a surprising ending.
