“Today I will fly!”

Out of the dark shed, a vaguely human shape appeared. I say vaguely because it was possible to discern arms, legs and a torso, but where there should have been a head, there was only a bump. As the figure came further into the light more detail was discernable, and it looked like a juggernaught submersible suit, like the ones used for laying undersea telegraph cables.

When the suit had advanced 10 metres from the shed, a metallic voice issued from the suit “3…2…1…launch!”

And with that, the large man like suit, shot into the sky, leaving smoke and a single startled sheep.
