LIFELINE

by Chandler Kaschimer, Age 8 Incoming signal Establishing Connection Receiving Message Hello! Hello my name is Taylor. I’m stuck on a weird desert moon in a crash on a ship called the Varia. I seem to be the only survivor in the crash. The door is IMPOSSIBLE to move. I have no way of communication because the computers are all wrecked up. If only I can make a pickaxe. Taylor is busy Ta da! I made a pickaxe out of computer hardware and hacked through the door. There is a whole new world out there. I mean LITERALLY, there’s a crater right next to me. I’m going to go check it out. Taylor is busy I’m so tired. This crater is HUGE. I mean the star of this moon is getting low. I think I should go back to the Varia. Taylor is busy Ok I’m back at the Varia. I’m getting so cold. My only warmth is the reactor. I’m going to camp up down there. Taylor is busy Hey I’m good as new! I don’t have five ears or two mouths. I’m ready for a hearty breakfast. I can snack down a few grab-and-go snack packs and I’m ready to go! Taylor is busy Now that I’m ready, I can go explore the crater down there. Taylor is busy

WHOA. You got to see what I found! IT’S A SECRET BASE IN THE ROCKS. I AM DEFINITELY GOING INSIDE. Huh? My rats from the Varia. Hi Chubby and Blacksmith. AND THEY ARE KILLING EACH OTHER FOR A TINY PIECE OF CRUMB. It’s so horrifying! I can’t look. WHOA. A SLIMY GREEN… THING IS CLIMBING OUT OF BLACKSMITH. I think it’s an alien! I’m going to stomp on it. That takes care of that. Whoa. WORKING COMPUTERS! But I don’t like the way they sound. I can read you what they say. TARGET ACQUIRED. LOCKDOWN SUCCESFUL. WAIT. DID THEY SAY LOCKDOWN SUCCESFUL! I’m in big trouble. Let me hack into those computers. Taylor is busy There’s that and that and I’m done! So the door is moveable now. What about the TARGET ACQUIRED part? Intense heat spotted Minor leg burns My leg burns! Huh? That was another ship that crashed into the hideout! And on the computer shows little green things crashing into the moon. WAIT. THOSE ARE SPACESHIPS. It’s like somebody was trying to crash them. I’m going back to the Varia for my sleep plans. Taylor is busy There, I’m back at the Varia. I’m going to get ready for sleep. Taylor is busy Whoa! Those ships I saw didn’t crash. They are rescue ships! I have glow rods to signal them for help. Over here ship, over here. The ship picked me up and sent me into the orbit of earth. And now I’m back home on my home planet, Earth. The End
