Chapter 1: Did You Say...Space?!
After a month worth of time, I was woken up by my phone ringing in my house. "Hello?" I said picking the phone up. "Hello! I need you and 6 town members to come to space to find a magical stone, come to the NASA space center today at 3" it then hung up. I glared at the phone for a second. Then rushed outside to tell everyone the news. "Will 6 of us really go to space?" Amber said staring at me. "Yes!" I replied. Everyone whispered to each other, "So, who's with me?!" I asked. Everyone went silent. Jason sat up from the crowd. "Me. I will." He said. "Okay crew member number one!" Amber then stood up. Then Green. Then Jared. "4!" "Anymore?" Then Zany stood. I stared at Sir. "Argh, fine...But if there's any aliens..." he said under his breath. So it was decided! 7 of us were going to space!
Me, Jason, Amber, Jared, Sir, Zany And Green were going to space! Everyone chatted as we waited to get to the space center. "Are we really going to space?" Amber said lifting her head from a manual she borrowed from the library cause she wanted to know more about space. "I guess so!" I said. We went inside the building, to find a person named Space. And no, his name is literally space. "Hi there! Nice to meet you! My name is SpaceEnderman!" "Hi! My name is Heidi, and these are my friends, Amber, Jason, Jared, Sir, Zany, and Green!" I said.
"We...um...space rock was it?" Zany said to No one really. "Yeah..." space said, he rubbed his neck. "Your going to space though! So that's great!" He added trying not to sound weird. He told us we were going to be sent on a rocket that would land on the planet in 2 days. So, we would be in the rocket for 2 days. Then, be on the planet for 9 days. Then be brought back. Hopefully, safely. They showed us the rocket we were going to fly in. It was a white rocket, red on the rim of the top. A black little stick thing poking out from the top. And two wings sticking out from the side.
A couple days later everyone had packed and was ready to go. We traveled back to NASA, ready as ever! They told us we needed to put on a space suit. So we did. Everyone put on a space suit and a helmet. We walked down to the spaceship helmet in hand. "You first." Amber said to me. I stepped into the space craft. "Goodbye earth, Hello space!" We jumped inside the rocket to find 7 seats. One captain and co-pilot, and the rest were passengers. The seats were cyan color. Next to the seats was a room leading to some bunks. Which we could use to sleep. The walls were a cream color and the crew seem to enjoy it.
A beeping noise came from the little control panel near the pilot seat. "Come in crew and captain. Come in crew and captain." A voice said. "Yes?" I responded to it hoping it can hear me. "We will begin the launch count down in 5 minutes. Brace yourself." After five minutes. Everyone was ready. I was pilot and Jason was co-pilot. "3...." the engines started running. "2...." "1..." "Launch!" I pressed the button to make the spacecraft launch. The roaring engines blasted. We had launched into the air. Me and my friends, had launched into the unknown void, known as space.
Chapter 2: Crash Landing
"Make sure you keep a eye on your oxygen meter, the space craft has a limit on oxygen. If you run out... Game over." Space said through the microphone. I glanced over to the oxygen meter. It was in the green zone. Guessing by that I was certain that we were safe, for now. "You can keep the craft in autopilot for now" space said. I clicked the autopilot button and stepped down from the controls. "Hey Heidi..." Jason started to say. "Yes?" I replied. "If...We're in space...Will gravity be.." I stared at him for a second. Then ran over to the controls and pressed the anti-gravity button. Everyone started to float. Zany took out some water a spilt it. It floated in mid-air. Sir then launched over and try to nab it in mid-air. He bumped over on the controls causing the ship to steer course to a meteor shower. "...Whoops..." Sir said in reply.
"We're going dieeeeeeee!!" Amber said panicking. "No we're not!" I replied trying as hard as I can to calm her down. Jason ran over to the wheel took it and tried to steer us out the shower. A meteor crashed down right next to our space-craft. Causing it to lose it's side wing. Jason steered us toward a different planet. Hopefully would let us crash safely.
"Heidi? Heidi! Wake up!" Amber said shoving me awake. "Huh? Whazah? What happened?" I said sitting up. "We crashed." Jason said approaching me and amber. He pointed outside the window. It was all dust and space rocks. "Is everyone else okay?" I said dusting myself off from the crash. "Yeah, their over in the space lounge in the rocket." I went into the lounge to find Sir, Zany, Jared and Green. "Hi guys." I said sitting down at the table and grabbed some tea from the nearest tea kettle. "Hi!" Zany said. "What planet are we on?" Sir said sipping a bit of tea. I glanced over at Jason. "I'm not sure...I'll have to look on the co-pad" he replied. "Can we get communication to earth?" I said walking over to the controls with Jason. "I dunno, the rocket was badly damaged." He said. "Wait! What about the oxygen meter?!" He said. We ran over to the rocket to find the meter in the yellow zone. "Uh oh..." I said staring at the meter. "The thing I need to repair the ship is called a Xork rock." Jason said.
"We can't cause panic." Jason said slamming the meter hoping it will go up. I walked over near the door of the space craft. "What are you doing?" Jason said. "Checking for a space suit..." I said digging through a bunch of useless gear. "But! But! We don't know what's out there!" He said. "Well, if we wait we'll never find out!" I said slipping on the space helmet I found. "Good point." He slipped on as well. "I'll tell the others." I said walking into the space lounge. "Me and Jason are going to see what's out there. Anyone wanna come?" I said. "I'll come!" Amber said sitting up. Jason, me, and Amber then set off into the dusty planet.
Chapter 3: A Very Spoopy Situation.
We traveled for what seems like years across the dusty planet disturbed about knowing what or who is on the planet. "So." I said trying to bring up conversation. "How do we know what planet we're on? And do we have any contact to earth?" I said. Jason brought out of his pocket a little tablet, it was black with white letters on the back reading "Co-pad" he looked deep in thought as he started at the pad. "It says...We're on Spides 51. It's a very new planet, not much about it is in our data base." Jason remarked. "Hmmm, that's not very comforting..." I said. Something caught my eye though. Amber, she was staring at something. "Amber?" I said walking up to her. But before I could respond. I saw a huge destroyed city.
"What...What is that?" I said as Jason walked up to me and amber. "I haven't the slightest clue..." Jason said staring down at the wreckage. My heart sank, I saw something moving. It was a gray little man down in the wreckage. He was tidying up some things. But before we could come down, he saw us, and ran away. "Should...Um...Should we go down there?" I said looking at Amber then back at Jason. "I...Guess." Amber said. We went down the mountains rock by rock. Sometimes someone would slip and catch themselves. We made it down to the wrecked city. Vehicles were turned over on their side, buildings were split in half. And worst of all, a smell of death was laying over the city. Jason was scared, Amber was scared, I was scared, everyone was scared. But we trudged on.
We explored most of the buildings, Nothing. Nothing was in the buildings. They were empty. The smell of death and worry was still laying over the city. It seems this place was a fail for a civilization. That white man though. He was alive, wasn't he? That means there is still alive...beings here. Whatever they are. After trudging through the city, we heard a snarl. "Rrrrrr!" It said. "What...What was that?" I said. "I'm...I am not sure." Jason said. "Trespassers....." it grumbled. "Whatever it is, it doesn't seem happy!" Amber said "RRRRRRRAAAA!" It screeched. "I recommend we run." Amber said. Everyone agreed on that. We ran into a small hole. We hid there. The monster left. "I'm getting a single of where the Xork rock is!" Jason said. "How is that helpful at a time like this?!" I said. "Because the single-" He stared outside the hole. "Is coming from the city!" He finished. We crawled out the hole. "Okay where is it near the city then?" Amber said. He pointed towards the largest tower in the city. "That, is where it's coming from." He said.
"That?!" Amber said pointing to it. "Yes!" He replied. "Ugghhh!" She said. "We already just got back from a giant butterfly from a giant island in the middle of no where! Can't we have a brake?!" She said pacing. "Like it or not, we have to go there." I said and finished their bickering. We started running towards the giant tower. It was large and big. And it wasn't very welcoming. On top the tower was a giant pole, atop the pole was a little pinwheel. It didn't spin because of the anti-gravity. It was somewhat strange.
"Are you sure we won't die from this?" I said as we finished walking up to the tower. "It's either die or fly, Heidi." Jason said. "Sigh." Amber said. We stepped up on the building. It a pale blue. We went inside. The door was black. Inside was a large room with a counter. On the counter was a piece of material, that said "Escape...Before....It comes...." with a big splosh of ink on the bottom. "Before 'it' comes?" Amber said staring at it. "Gulp." We made our way to a door leading to a broken elevator. In the elevator laid a large space helmet which was cracked. "I don't like this..." I said. "Keep moving." Jason ordered. We obviously could not use the elevator. And the single was on the top floor. Perhaps the moon rock was the pinwheel?
We made our way to a set of stairs. We started to climb up them, but the more we climbed, the more it seemed it was getting longer, I glanced upwards. It looked endless. "Hmmm..." I said. I looked around the room for a while to see a switch that said "Endless stairs." And under it saying off and on. "Off!" I said and cranked the handle. It shot us up rapidly. It sent us to the third floor. And shoved us in a long corridor. Each door was numbered. "Well then." I said. "Should...should we look through the doors?" Jason asked. I nodded. One by one we checked the doors. They were locked. One door though. Was not numbered. It Stood out from the rest. There was a image of a skull on the door. It was not numbered. Nor was it the same colors of the black dull doors. It was...Different. Me, Jason, and Amber, stood in front of it. "Should we open it?" Amber said nudging the handle. I rubbed my neck. Something didn't...feel right. BANG! bang bang! Someone was inside the door! And they wanted out!
Warning; Anything below this is scary, if you don't like scary stuff, skip ahead till you see chapter 4. You have been warned.
"What do we do?!" I said as Me Jason and Amber ran a little bit away from the door. "We watch, and we wait." Jason said. We waited and watched the door. It was banging louder and louder. Then we heard it, a scream. It screeched across the long corridor, echoing. It sounded if a boy just walked on a nail. If a reindeer, picked it's antler off. It sounded bad. Really really bad. We just froze when we heard the screech.
We then heard a loud growl. It sounded...like a ghost. Or if the person died, and turned into a ghost. Either way it was scary. After the screech and growl. Amber, Jason, and me shivered. "Hungry...Hungry for food....Hungry for earthlings." It said. We all gave each other glances saying we should run away and never look back. But we couldn't. We couldn't for Zany, Jared, Sir, and Green. They counted on us to bring the moon rock home. Even if one of us gets hurt in the process. Then it stopped. the groaning stopped. The screaming ended. "I...Am...Always...Watching..." it whispered before everything ended.
Chapter 4: Home sweet earth!
"Ah ha ha!" Amber said backing away. "What in the name of agape just happened?" Jason said staring at the door. "I have no idea..." I said. "My files!!" Someone roared. "His...Files?" I said perplexed. We went near the door. And opened it. Inside was a boy playing on his computer. "What? Huh? Who?" I started to say. "Oh! Visitors! On our humble little planet?" The boy said and shut off his PC. "We...What..." I once again said. "Oh, the screaming, that was me." He said rather embarrassed. "I deleted my files..." he said. "What was the other voice?" I said. The computer then played the intro of his video game. "Earthlings verse aliens! Who will win?" It said.
"Do you perhaps have a space rock?" Jason chipped in. "Yes actually. But, I need something in return for it." The boy said. "Oh by the way, my name is PullPlug. But you can call me plug for short." Plug said. "Okay, what do we need to do in return for you? Plug?" I said. Plug looked smug now. "I want your space helmet." Plug said. "But! she'll die without her helmet!!" Jason and Amber said. "Guys." I said. "Go back home." I said. "But!" Amber said. "No, no buts." I said. "If I die, I die." I took off the helmet and handed it to plug. For a moment no air went through my lungs. Then, it did. How, do you ask? Because that day, is when I figured out I was a space reindeer.
"Wow! You can breath? I was sure you were going to..." plug started to say. "Here." And handed Jason the space rock. "Thanks, now let's get outta here!" Jason said in a hurry. We rushed down the steps this time it wasn't endless. And rushed back to our rocket. "I can't believe you actually made it back! We were so worried!" Zany Said. "Yeah! We thought you guys were goners!" Sir said. They said as they greeted us back. We gladly welcomed the praise for our work. Of not dying in a brutal death. Jason then started to work on fixing the rocket. He fixed it in a day or two.
"Everyone ready to get back home?" I said to everyone. "Yes! Yeah! Uh-huh! Let's go!" Everyone cheered. "Launch in...3...2...1...Blast off!" We soared miles into the sky. And then aimed towards earth. We talked about what happened on our trip. And before you know it. We made it back to earth. And we got back to home. We were home at Last!
Moral of the story, never ever ever, Go to space without friends.
