Default Girls, what do you do if you're picked up by a bird?

(I promise I'm going somewhere with this.)

Say it's a nice day and you're taking a nice walk somewhere, when out of nowhere, a giant bird swoops down on you from above, grabs you by the arms with its claws, and lifts you right off the ground.

How do you react? Are you scared? Excited? Angry? Happy? Do you try to wriggle free?

(I'm writing a story where this happens to a female character, and in writing this part, I'm curious how other girls here would react in that situation.)

I'd be scared because I don't like unprotected heights.

If it showed no sign of hostility, aka intent to eat me, I would just let it carry me. After all, how often does that happen to a person? I'd rather not spoil the moment if I don't have to.

I see! So how do you fight back if you're not flying over water?

Maybe if it seems safe, you enjoy the ride?

That's so difficult to know without having more details. If it felt threatening or harmful then you would have to act to save your life.

That's kinda why I'm interested in people's answers. What's your first reaction if this happened to you but with no context as to why? Does your mind immediately go to "oh no this is bad" or "hey this is cool"? I'm just curious.

Why is this happening? seems like the first, and obvious response.

Definitely a fair first response. Do you then try to wriggle free or just see where it takes you?

Once I feel safe, I'm open to a new experience and would love to know where it was taking me and what it was planning to do together.

I'd give the bird my address, and let him/her know my intended paying method in good time before we reach the destination.

Realistically, I'd be pretty scared and most likely need a change of pants.

If it was flying closer to the ground, would you struggle to make it let you go?
