An original story written by "M" when she was (8) years old.
Janice was fourteen. Jared was
fifteen. Kyle was only twelve. Their mom and dad were cool.
Their dad was a wonderful guy. Their mother was perfect.
They lived in a big house. Janice had dark brown hair like her
mother's. She looked like her mom. Jared had brown hair.
Kyle looked similar to their future sister, "E".
Kyle went into the kitchen where Mom was cooking beans, saying that
beans make you fart and that you feel good when you fart. She was
also making spinach, talking about Popeye. Kyle was mad that Mom
was making spinach. He hated it.
"Kyle, call Dad from his room.
I want to talk to him," Mom said, not even seeing Kyle. Kyle got Dad and
left to play with his teenage siblings.
"Let's play checkers, Jared," he
"No, let's play video games, Janice," replied Jared.
"Super," Janice said.
She kicked Kyle out, and turned on her TV. T for teens, the TV
blared. "Oh yeah, cool," Jared said. Jared and Janice played
video games for an hour.
Kyle barged in and said, "Mom and
Dad said something about the tunnel is a secret passage to all
humans." "Do you think they are aliens?" Kyle asked.
Jared and Janice did not answer.
They were watching E-ring and Cold Case. Kyle thought they heard
him. Kyle, Jared, and Janice went to the table to eat. Mom
and Dad kept on looking at each other warily, but Jared and Janice
seemed not to notice. It was Monday, and the beans were red and
"Mmmmm," said Kyle as he slurped
hot - Tabasco red beans. Red beans are the best with Tabasco!
Kyle was faking. He was so scared of Mom and Dad. They were
acting so creepy. Could they be aliens? Sometimes they were
weird, but aliens? No way! But there was always a chance.
And there were obvious clues that they were aliens.
Dad reached out a clawed hand to
eat a worm. AAhh - a daydream. Kyle was glad it was a
daydream, so he went to his room and prayed, "Please tell me if Mom and
Dad are aliens." He went to bed.
He had nightmares of ghosts and
bears coming to eat him. He woke up! Two a.m. is what his
clock said. Kyle slid out of bed and got on a T-shirt and shorts,
then put on tennis shoes. He tiptoed to Mom and Dad's room.
They were gone! Could they be in the tunnel? He would chance
it. Kyle was going to the tunnel. He went into the laundry
room, and tapped a spot on the washing machine. It opened!
Kyle stepped through. He found himself standing at the base of a
long waterslide. It was dark. Kyle jumped on the waterslide.
It was warm, and there was water spraying from the ceiling.
Down, down, down. Kyle was
shooting down. Soon, he felt himself going into a raging creek.
He ducked underwater, and came up, coughing. Water filled Kyle's
nose as he rushed along on his back, headfirst. The swift current
pulled him along. A person was floating toward him! Kyle
dove underwater. The swift water pulled him toward rocks, which he
ducked past. Then he came to a foaming area. Kyle held his
breath, and swirled around, underwater.
He came up and treaded water,
until he found himself in a lake with only 30' deep water. The
shore was not far away. Kyle swam to shore. People-people of
his own kind, were on the beach. There was a big sign-and the sign
said: Welcome to Earth! So-before this he had been
living on another planet. A woman came running through the crowd.
Kyle pulled himself onto the beach.
The woman said, "Kyle! You
came home!" The woman hugged him.
"You...who are you?" Kyle asked.
"I am your real mother. An
alien woman, your fake mom, came and took you and your siblings to
Upiriupslam (a planet), because she had no children. I have been
waiting for you to come. Go back and get Jared and Janice.
They remember me," the woman said. "There is another way to get
back. Swim to the bottom of the lake, and grab the toy car.
Wish, get Jared and Janice."
Kyle did so, and Jared and Janice
came swimming over.
"Mom!" Jared yelled, and began
Their mom had long, thick brown
hair, green eyes, a light blue T-shirt, and jeans. It was day on
Earth. A pretty, sunny day.
