Olive’s beta test one

/BEGIN FLASHBACK/

10 year old Olive and Ben are sitting on stairs of an outdoor plaza next to a fountain. Olive is holding a model balsam wood airplane in her hand. 

BEN: Looks great.

OLIVE: It’s actually really well balanced. Look.

BEN: So, what do you think? Should we take it for a test flight?

OLIVE: Okay. This is beta test one.

She winds the propeller.

OLIVE: Ready?

BEN: Ready.

OLIVE: Okay. Launch!

As plane lands on cobblestone, someone riding a bike runs it over.

BEN: Hey!

BEN: No, no, no, no, no! No!

Ben and Olive run toward the broken plane.

OLIVE: [SIGHS] I can’t believe he just did that!

BEN: Oh, he didn’t mean to, sweetie.

BEN: Come here, let me show you something.

OLIVE: It’s ruined. No, it’s never gonna fly.

Ben places the plane in the water.

OLIVE: Thank you, Daddy. You always make everything better.

Olive hugs her dad.
