We were given Questions we had to answer through a story, so I did.
Question: If aliens attacked the Earth, what would be the one item you would take with you?
“Austin, time to get up” my dad said in attempt to bring me out of my slumber. “Just a minute dad, i’ll wake up… eventually.” My dad yanked the sheets right out of my bed, then screamed “Austin, aliens are attacking! We have to go now!!!” “Dad, let me sleep, for just ten more minu…” I opened my eyes to the sight of our house in ruins. In the distance you could see an ominous green glow. “A fleet of spaceships are coming and they’re coming fast, you only have time to take on thing so get up, make your mind, then get the heck to the car” My dad said as he ran out. I jumped out of my bed and ran out of the house with a backpack (with school supplies, eg scissors, water bottle, lunch kit, etc) in hand. We dashed to the car and drove off. As our car left Vermilion, we saw the fleet of spaces crafts, dismantling the town of Vermilion building by building. I sighed in relief, knowing we had escaped the disaster behind us, but terrified at what would happen next…
Question: What would be your famous last words?
“That was close” I thought to myself as I stare at the massive destruction of vermilion. The shuttles shot laser beams at the buildings. “Why are they here?” I thought to myself. “What do they wa…” A sudden orchestra of car alarms went off. We look ahead to a intimidating sight. The entire road in front of us was engulfed in flames.
Mysterious creatures roamed around the wreckage speaking in some kind of language. “Everyone, don’t say a word.” our dad said as the aliens inspected our vehicle. The cryptic creatures climb all over our car, investigating the exterior. They had big eyes with slit pupils, nearly coming out of their foreheads. The lizard-like creatures were semi quadruped, on fours occasionally, but on twos mostly. The creatures had their mouths covered, and some kind of yellow gaseous substance being pumped into the reptile’s mask. To our fortune, the creatures past us, but the neighboring car didn’t get the same outcome. The passengers of the neighboring sports car were condemned (due to lack of roof). The driver was screaming in terror as the alien picked him up. The aliens dashed out in a sudden burst with the person in hand. The car erupted in the scream of our innocent little brother.
The alien stopped and turned back and stared directly at us. His eyes locked on his target. “DAD GO, GO GO GO” I screamed in complete fear of the creatures. The speedometer spiked as our dad attempted a dangerous escape. The creature behind us ran at a speed no living creature would ever achieve. The very look of the creature put Jude to tears. The alien stared at me, and wouldn’t look anywhere else. The alien pounced at our car. “Holy crap!!” I screamed. The alien dug his claws through the roof of our car. Suddenly the reptile ripped off our roof and pounced on me. The alien removed his mask showing rows of unimaginably sharp teeth. He dug his teeth into my arm. Screams echoed through the car. My dad jumps out of his seat and kicks the creature in the eye. The creature shrieks then retreats. The world begins to fade, I could barely breathe. “Austin!” My Mom screamed. “I’ll be waiting for you all at the gates of heaven” This being my last words. Then everything faded away, everything was black, and silent…
