|Two sisters hold the key to a war brewing in our solar system|
Space Chapter 1 The year is 6002 and Earth was at war with Mars, the big red planet. It turns out their was life their. But things didn't go the way we planed. I'm a scientist that's under cover working to end this war. I was with the group of astronauts that was on the shuttle when the aliens attacked. The year was 5090, they didn't know that we were earthlings. They thought we where Pluto's army. They where at war with Pluto at the time. Every man and woman on that shuttle was killed except me. Not long after they shot are shuttle with some kind of chemical that would kill any thing in it's path that breathed. I know what your thinking though, how did I survive this if know one else did. I regretfully say I never found out why. But even though my tale sounds sad it has good things to say. So as my shuttle was hit two baby alien girls where born. Their names where Somnia and Anya. But in English it's Samantha and Annie. These girls where no ordinary aliens though. They would be the very miracle that earth and Mar's have been waiting for. So as I was landing Samantha and Annie where taking their very first breath. But they where also taking their first step into saving earth and space. Chapter 2 Finally the doors swung open to the shuttle. Making a nice whooshing sound that some how soothed me. I held my breath praying that I would magically disappear so I wouldn't have to face what ever was behind that door. But I knew their was no place to hide. Finally I stepped out and realized that I was in no danger. What I found was a town , a town filled with people. I almost began to think my wish had come true. That I was back on earth with all the other humans and that I had never stepped foot on that awful space shuttle. My mind was quickly changed when I began to see their cloths, their ears where pointed, and their noses where pointed up slightly flat. Their fingers glowed like an odd bright orange light bulb. I don't know how long I was standing there in awe of my discovery when I finally noticed it was not by mistake. I was tapped roughly on the shoulder, unkindly I might add, and told to follow this “so called” alien. I was so surprised I couldn't object to his rude request. So I followed mindlessly, not knowing what I was getting my self into. So as we walked on I then began to truly inspect this creature. His fingers glowed a pale green. I sighed and wondered curiously why his fingers where different from others of his kind. I chuckled not knowing that I had laughed out loud. At that moment he turned his head and gave me a dark stare that made me shiver. I then hushed my laugh and turned my attention to the ground, carefully studying its texture and color. I then grew bored as we walked on. I also felt my legs quivering from exhaustion. I took a chance and blurted out “Why did you attack my shuttle.” With that, he then turned around and clenched his fists as his fingertips glowed with anger. He then muttered something in his own tongue, then eventually he unclenched his fists and began to walk forward again, but with more speed and anger. I moaned knowing I had made a big mistake. As I walked on unknowingly, unsure of my future. Finally out of nowhere a big tall building appeared. The alien then gestured me to go inside as we reached the building. I hesitated for a moment then touched the cold icy door handle as I gathered my thoughts. The man then grunted telling me he was getting impatient. So without a second thought I pulled on the handle and walked into the building. ￼ Chapter 3 The inside of the building was dark and misty, and smelled of mildew. I had to pause for a moment for my eyes to adjust to the dim light. Before I was finished I was shoved forward forcefully, as I walked down the long hallway. Finally the man stopped in front of a large brass door with a diamond door knob. As I stepped into the small room I found a small rickety old bed in the corner with a dusty old fire place on the opposite side of the room. Their was also a ripped couch next to the fire that was crawling with bugs. The man then grunted and pushed me into the room and slammed the door behind him. I quickly tried to open the door but it was locked. Slowly I searched the room looking for some kind of way out. There was no point in looking. Even though the room looked broken there was definitely no way out. I groaned as I made my way to the bed, noticing for the first time that I was tired .
