Boring! Why? Why do I have to have so much torture? I can’t swim, yet I’m forced to have pointless swimming lessons, but then worst of all, I’m dragged round a shopping centre full of horrible, muggy smells gushing up my nostrils. The cold metal of the trolley full of a weeks worth of grub filled my hands with the feel as if they weren’t their. A shiver crawled up my spine. Then out of the blue the lights clicked. Darkness fell. I felt alone.
Up on the wall was a dark, mysterious computer raised from an opening. It looked beautiful. I was just about to sneeze, but when the computer screen lit up, something strange happened. I found myself hurtling into thin air, frozen eyes glaring back at me, but then the thin air changed. It was completely different.
A big, blue E formed below my feet and it unfolded beneath me. I entered a new world. A gooey sheet of green hung from above, like a pile of wet clothes outside in the rain, while pink pieces of cotton wool gathered creating a picture of a woolly sheep. Blue hid my feet as I turned to find someone. This needed an explanation.
A rustle of leaves. A voice croaked:
“You just blew our cover. Congratulations!”
I ducked. I began to travel backwards but I stumbled over a little object. Blue all over with some pink fluff on top.
“Quit staring. What is it? My hair, skin of what? If it’s my hair, back off. I get offended ok? No wait it’s my eyes. Oh what planet am I on?” The creature embarrassingly explained. I began to get up.
“Rise you fool. What brings you here? Oh by the way if you want to know I come in peace no, no I mean do you come in peace? Of course you would so don’t say yes. My name is Jupiter 128. Pleased to meet you.”
An entire army gathered, all dressed in pink and blue, around Jupiter 128. I was stuck. Everyone’s skin was turquoise with pink fluffy hair they were cute, but not as cute on the inside. As Jupiter 128 looked at me in the eyes my skin turned turquoise and my hair pink and my eye sight became better as I grew another four eyes.
On the cliff side, I peered out over the ocean, the colour of old, dry blood, when I felt a cold hand on my back. Jupiter 128 offered me three heavy coats and some weights tied to my feet apparently to stop me falling. Then suddenly, out of no where he covered my eyes and shoved me off the edge.
I fell deeper, deeper, the weights on my blue feet pulling my down. I unexpectedly I hit the surface of the deep, red sea. It was colder than it looked. It was like a million ice cubes running down my back. I struggled. I couldn’t breath. Maybe I should have listened in my swimming lessons.
Mum had said there would be a consequence for not listening and here it is. But then as I thought I wouldn’t live a second longer, the atmosphere turned to nothing.
I was floating for ages, I don’t know how long for exactly as there is no night or day. Days, months or even years past that I grew so bored (and grew a beard, green if you want to know, even though I’m a girl) that I made friends with all the stars. Finally I got a best star called twinkle, (fancy having that name).
She was so kind and helpful that I told her all my worries. She understood I’m sure, but I was worried she had heard it the wrong way as she wouldn’t talk to me for ages after. I began to feel sorry and ashamed of myself when she practically blew a hurricane out of her mouth, flinging me backwards, with all her might. I could see her colour fade, a crystal fall from her pearl eye and I saw her drop. Drop down to the end.
I knew I would never see her again, but I was hopefully going to see my mum, but… I didn’t know how to feel. I began to feel myself shrink, my turquoise skin fade, my pink hair turn dull brown, my beard gradually vanishing. Strangely, I was reluctant to the fact, I was more thinking of home, Twinkle and how I would miss her.
My clothes were like a farm and I was just a small needle, alone. I certainly felt alone. I felt my back peel through the computer screen. I began to see the cereal boxes, where we left off, six feet high each at least. As I began to grow, inch by inch, my soul who I could see staring at me smiled nastily and sneezed.
The germs were to strong for me and I got caught and dragged back. I saw stars for the second time. I was still growing, but so were the germs pinning me back. My clothes fitted me again and I looked strong, but I was so weak on the inside. I wished I could join Twinkle. But now I was stuck with NO Twinkle to send me back to where I belonged. I’d do anything to be in a shopping centre or even swimming lessons. I am constantly fighting the germs that are left. Why did I have to arrive in the first place?
