‘ Can we go home now’, I said. ‘I’m sick of looking in this foggy paddock’ ‘No’, said Mum. ‘It was there I saw it. It was bright green with flashing aqua lights, round and just… unimaginable’ ‘Well yeah whatever I’m going home’, I said. ‘Stupid alien ship’, I mumbled to myself. ‘Yeah right!’ I took 3 loud stomps on the muddy grass as the sky was turning into night. Suddenly the sky lit up with flashing purple metalic lights and thunder, clouds moving quickly. I was scared, frightened breathing loudly and my heart thumping. Blackness of the sky I had never seen before just scared me. Mum just looked at me in fear and slight satisfaction. I ran home as my brain was trying to take it all in. My name is Lilly and I thought I was brave. I am a lonely child I have blonde hair and blue eyes and right now I am in shock. My Mum also has blonde hair and blue eyes and is very brave. I sprint into my neighbourhood to find my house. It’s the only one left in the house. I scream. ‘Lilly!’, I hear being called. I see Mum running towards me. ‘You were right’, I said. ‘Sorry I doubted you’ ‘It’s ok’, said Mum. It looks although this whole town is deserted. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I walked up to the front door of the house and took a deep breath, I turned the handle and it made a creaking sound like never before. A cold shiver went down my spin and goose bumps covered my body. I walked inside to frightened to look I ran behind Mum clinging to her like a wombat. There was mold all over the walls. As we both tip toed into the lounge room stillness and silence filled the air. A quick gust of air rushed in front of our very eyes. I ran into my room and hid under the blankets and yelled at Mum. ‘I don’t want to go outside, I’m staying here!’ I said. ‘Well you have a choice come with me or stay here’, Mum yelled. ‘I will be back in the morning’ CHAPTER 2 I stayed home I didn’t want to go into the weird universe and storms that was happening outside. I must have fell asleep because I had a strange dream that Mum died and I found her lying there dead. Anyway I told you Mum was brave, there is no way I was going with her… well I do miss her a little bit. I jumped out of bed, grabbed my torch and checked my clock. It was 11:59 I had a sneak peak out the window, I saw the usual owl up the tree. I go to turn back around and I say ‘Wait, WHAT WAS THAT’ I quickly and quietly turn back and I saw dark green eyes staring at me but the funny thing was that they were bobbing up and down in the middle of nowhere. 12 o’clock donged loudly, the dor was slammed open and shut. Mold starts falling from the roof. My dog Srcuffy has been hurt and has appeared to be unconscious.
“Scruffy’’, I yelled. I pat his head as the glaring moonlight shone through the window. The next morning I woke up with the torch laying next to me, flickering because it’s nearly flat. My dog-‐Scruffy is still laying beside me. “I will be back Scruff’’, I rubbed his ear and ran out of the freaky house. I decide to go see if my friend Molly has been seeing all this weird and strange things. I remember that my neighbour-‐hood has gone; this whole place is a wreck. I suddenly find myself awake lying on the footpath Again! What is with this? I say to myself. Why us? I said, I miss Mum; she said she would be here by morning what if something has happened to her. “ I say. I feel a rush of wind fly behind me like a stamped of elephants. It’s like a ghost or something. I decide to search the town for mum. CHAPTER 3 “Mum!” I yell out as loud as possible. “Where are you! Where would she be.’’ I thought to myself. “Is anyone there!” I scream. I sit down on the deserted dull chair to think. ‘’You will be next’’ I hear. I pretend I don’t hear it. I walk off with my eyeballs peeled like a hawk. I feel like I’m being followed. I turn around, ‘I know your there’, I say. All I see is a plain path with green. I see those dark green eyes again bobbing up and down. ‘Go away’, I say. Suddenly I see purple and green lighting strikes thunder like big drums being played. I see a vision of Mum lying on the ground. ‘Where are you’, I scream. I get no reply. ‘NOOOOOOOOOO!’, This can’t be happening. CHAPTER 4 I find Mum dead on the brown grass I walked tediously over to her. ‘Mum!’, I say as tears start to fall down my face. ‘Why, why’, I said. ‘It should be me’ I said as my voice faded away. I feel her face with my thumb. ‘Your turn!’ said a mysterious voice coming from her body. I spot those freaky green eyes. I blink 3 times. A big, enormous lightning bolt strikes beside me. I scream and hold my eyes shut. Then I wake up. I was relieved, it hadn’t really happened. Had it? Mum walked I a usual until I heard that same voice in her! ‘Oh no!’
