One day I woke up and found I was a skydiver

 

Daredevils love bungee jumping but Felix Baumgartner is at an altogether different level. This Austrian skydiver and daredevil jumped to earth from the stratosphere and lived to tell the tale! I went to sleep marveling at his courage. 

 

The next day I woke up and found myself training for skydiving just like Mr.Felix! I had a teacher who was training me. 

 

First I jumped from the building. Whew! Made it!  Then I jumped from a tower. I learnt very fast and my teacher said to test my skills by jumping from the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest tower. I did it and it was a great experience. Seeing my confidence, I was invited for a jump from space. A special astronaut suit was made for me. 

 

I boarded a colourful hot air balloon and made my way up into space. The countdown started…10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1…ready! I jumped and broke the world record of jumping from the highest distance. 

 

As I neared earth, I opened the parachute and landed safely beside my house. My family and my teacher were all happy and I felt like Mr. Felix. I got medals and rewards. I became world famous and decided to teach other people how to dive from space. It was truly a dream come true!
