vignette challenge

This week's prompt is:
flight

Anyone can join, with a 50-word vignette in the comments. Your vignette does not have to include the prompt term.

My effort:

And then they would be back to the original problem -- no flight -- with the added problem of no portal.
A branch slapped her in the face. Now they merely had the problem of having had a portal, and having no flight (to get over the trees). How long would it be?

Solange thought of running away. But where would she escape to? And June-Lily was, at least, not descending on her with smothering embraces.
June-Lily was old enough to be in the high school. She thought. But why did they think she was old to take her?
"You'll stay the night," said Mrs. Smith.
