Am going to use Tea as the name of the character.
You would always find Tea faced down to a book or her smartphone. At home, she'd spend hours on the computer missing important events happening around her. For a teen in her senior high, you'd think it was a hubby or she was probably obsessed with the media like other kids. But no, it was more than just a hubby, Tea had a thing for flight. Those hours on the computer were spent on flight simulations, while the books gave her more knowledge on flight. She was definitely going to be pilot.
7 or more years later
This is not one of those success stories. Tea was nowhere close to achieving her dream of being a pilot. Immediately after high school, he parents sent her to college so she could get a fine degree and take over the family business someday. Her parents were stiff, up scale kind of folks who had so much expectations from Tea. Being the only child, she had no choice but to make her parents happy.
Today was one of many days Tea felt depressed. She was on her way to the airport on a business trip to a small nation island. Tea had no idea that her life was about to change forever..............
......... I was thinking maybe some kind of fight or battle broke out in the nation where Tea had a business dealing with some other foreigners. They were left to struggle and find a way home after so much suffering. Their only chance was to fly the last plane they found in a private hanger but the pilot in their group got injured and died before the plane took off. Tea was left with no choice but to fly the plane with her high school days experience on flight. It didn't go smoothly but she manged it and saved a lot of people too flying them back home.
Didn't know to explain in details my idea so I thought to do a little short story, or so. Hoping you get the idea.
