Heather loved the freedom of soaring high above the land and sea. She learned how to hang-glide from her boyfriend.

Initially, she was scared to death. The first time he took her up, she hung on for dear life. But by the end of that flight, she was hooked. Half a year later, she bought her own hang-glider.

Almost every weekend, she drove to Torrey Pines and leaped off the cliff. She could soar to La Jolla in less than five minutes. She liked to fly over the town. She would wave at kids pointing and looking up at her, and they would shout and wave back excitedly.

One day she was returning to the launch site when she noticed a red hawk rapidly approaching her. It briefly disappeared. Then she heard its claws ripping the wing’s fabric. It flew off. But the next thing she knew, it was flying straight at her. She turned out of its way, but it dove at her again. She was scared.

She had to evade its attacks four times before she was able to land safely. Even after she landed, it circled overhead, as if daring her to fly again. What did I do to you, she wondered.

As she drove home, she found out that she had been lucky. The radio news reported that in Australia, a hang-glider had been attacked by not one, but two, eagles.

Maybe it was something in the air, Heather thought.

Chim tấn công.

Heather thích sự tự do bay lượn trên cao phía trên mặt đất và biển. Cô học được cách dùng diều bay lượn từ bạn trai của cô.
Ban đầu, cô sợ chết. Lần đầu tiên, anh dẫn cô đi, cô bám vào để thoát chết. Đến cuối chuyến đi, cô như một cái móc câu. Nửa năm sau đó, cô mua một cái diều bay cho mình.
Cứ vào mỗi cuối tuần, cô lái xe đến Torrey pines và nhảy xuống vách núi. Cô có thể bay đến La Jolla trong gần năm phút. Cô thích bay lướt qua thị trấn. Cô vẫy tay với bọn trẻ đang chú ý và nhìn lên cô, chúng cũng hò hét và vẫy tay với cô một cách thích thú.
Vào một ngày, khi cô đang quay trở lại bãi đáp, cô thấy một con chim ưng đỏ đang tiến đến gần cô rất nhanh. Nó biến mất trong một lúc. Sau đó, cô nghe thấy tiếng những móng vuốt của nó đang xé toạc vải cánh diều của cô. Nó bay đi. Nhưng điều kế tiếp mà cô biết được là nó đang bay thẳng đến cô. Cô tránh khỏi đường đó, nhưng nó lại xông đến cô. Cô cảm thấy sợ.
Cô phải tránh khỏi sự tấn công của nó 4 lần trước khi có thể tiếp đất an toàn. Ngay cả sau khi cô hạ xuống đất, nó vẫn bay lượn vòng tròn trên đầu, như thể đang thách thức cô bay lần nữa. Mình phải làm gì với nó đây, cô do dự.
Sau đó, cô lái xe về nhà, cô thấy mình thật may mắn.Bản tin thời sự vừa đưa tin ở Úc, một vận động viên chơi diều vừa bị tấn công bởi không chỉ một mà là 2 con đại bàng.
Có lẽ có cái gì đó trên trời, Heather nghĩ vậy.

*Translate into Vietnamese:

Đại bàng tấn công.
Heather yêu thích sự tự do bay vút lên cao ở trên mặt đất và biển cả. Cô học làm thế nào để bay lượn từ bạn trai của cô.
Khởi đầu, cô sợ chết, lúc đầu anh đặt cô đứng, cô treo theo mạng sống của người yêu.
Nhưng đến gần cuối chuyến bay, cô cong người lại như một cái móc.
Nửa năm sau, cô mua cho mình một cái tàu lượn.
Gần như mỗi cuối tuần, cô lái xe đến Torey Pines và nhảy ra khỏi vách đá. Cô có thể bay đến La Jolla chưa đến 5 phút. Cô thích bay trên khắp thị trấn.
Cô sẽ vẫy tay vào lúc bọn trẻ chỉ và nhìn cô ở trên cao, bọn trẻ sẽ reo hò và phấn khởi vẫy tay lại với cô.
Một ngày , khi cô quay lại nơi chiếc xuồng lớn, cô chú ý đến 1 con diều hâu đỏ, rất nhanh nó đến gần cô, thoáng chốc nó biến mất. Sau đó cô nghe móng vuốt của nó xé toạc cánh tàu lượn. Nó bay đi. Nhưng điều cô biết tiếp là nó bay thẳng vào cô. Cô tránh khỏi đường bay của nó, nhưng nó lượn theo cô lần nữa.
Cô sợ hãi.
Cô đã tránh khỏi sự tấn công của nó 4 lần trước khi cô còn sức đáp xuống đất an toàn. Ngay sau khi cô tiếp đất, nó vẫn lượn tròn trên đầu cô như muốn thách thức cô bay lại lần nữa. Tao đã làm gì mày, cô ngạc nhiên.
Cô lái xe về nhà, cô thấy mình đã thật may mắn khi đó. Radio đưa tin ở Úc 1 tàu lượn bị tấn công, không chỉ 1 mà là 2 con đại bàng.
Có lẽ nó chỉ là vài thứ ở trên không, cô nghĩ

CHIM TẤN CÔNG

Heather thích việc bay cao tự do trên biển và đất. Cô học cách bay lượn từ người bạn trai của cô.

Ban đầu, cô sợ chết lắm. Lần đầu tiên anh đưa cô lên, cô bám chặt vào để giữ lấy mạng sống. Đến cuối cuộc bay, cô giống như cái móc câu. Nữa năm sau, cô đã mua được một khung bay riêng cho mình.

Hầu như mỗi cuối tuần, cô đều lái xe đến Tory Pines và nhảy qua vách đá. Cô có thể bay đến La Jolla chưa đầy 5 phút. Cô thích bay qua thị trấn. Cô sẽ vẫy tay chào bọn trẻ đang chỉ nhau nhìn lên cô, chúng sẽ la hét và vẫy đáp lại cô một cách phấn khởi.

Một ngày nọ khi cô đang bay vòng về chỗ đáp, cô chợt thấy một con chim ưng đang bay nhanh về hướng cô. Thoắt một cái nó biến mất. Rồi sau đó cô nghe tiếng móng vuốt của nó đang xé toạt miếng vải ở cái cánh. Rồi nó lại bay đi. Nhưng rồi tiếp theo cô thấy nó đang bay thẳng về phía cô. Cô bay vòng ra khỏi đường bay của nó, nhưng nó lại lao vào cô lần nữa. Cô sợ lắm.

Cô đã tránh khỏi 4 lần tấn công của nó trước khi cô đáp xuống đất một cách an toàn. Thậm chí sau khi cô đáp xuống rồi, nó vẫn bay vòng vòng phía trên đầu cô, như thể thách thức cô bay lần nữa. Tao đã làm gì mày, cô tự hỏi.

Khi lái xe về nhà, cô nhận thấy rằng cô thật may mắn. Tin tức trên radio cho biết rằng ở Úc, một người bay lượn đã bị đại bàng tấn công, không chỉ 1 mà đến 2 con.

Có thể có gì đó trên trời, Heather nghĩ.

Những cú tấn công của một con chim

Heather thích sự tự do của việc bay cao trên đất liền và biển. Cô ấy học cách bay bằng diều từ người bạn trai của mình.

Lúc đầu cô rất sợ chết. Lần đầu tiên anh ta nâng cô lên, cô cố nắm lấy cuộc sống tươi đẹp. Nhưng vào lúc kết thúc chuyến bay, cô đã...(phần này tuananh không biết dịch sao nữa). Nửa năm sau, cô đã tự mua cho mình một chiếc diều bay.

Hầu như cuối tuần nào cô cũng lái xe tới Torrey Pines và lao mình xuống vách đá. Cô có thể bay tới La Jolla trong vòng chưa tới năm phút. Cô thích bay trên thị trấn. Cô sẽ vẫy chào những đứa trẻ chỉ tay và nhìn lên mình, và chúng vẫy lại một cách phấn khích.

Một ngày nọ khi cô đang trở lại điểm xuất phát thì cô nhận ra một con diều hâu đỏ đang tiến tới mình. Nó biến mất trong một khoảng thời gian ngắn. Rồi cô nghe tiếng móng của nó cào lên cánh vải. Nó bay đi. Nhưng điều tiếp theo cô biết thì nó đang bay thẳng vào cô. Cô tránh ra khỏi hướng bay của nó, nhưng nó lại lao vào cô lần nựa. Cô thấy sợ hãi.

Cô phải né tránh bốn lần tấn công của nó trước khi cô có thể đáp xuống đất. Ngay cả khi cô đã đáp xuống đất, nó vẫn lượn tròn phía trên, như đang thách thức cô dám bay lại không. Mình đã làm gì nó nhỉ, cô thầm nghĩ.

Khi cô lái xe về nhà, cô nhận ra rằng mình đã may mắn. Đài vừa đưa tin ở Australia, một người bay bằng diều đã bị tấn công không phải chỉ một con, mà tới hai con đại bàng.

Chắc có cái gì trên trời, Heather nghĩ.
