“Galaxy at War- Book 1: Knock”

|Chapter 1| “How it all Began”
I know people tell kids not to open the door to strangers, but I think opening the door this morning is what saved my life. My name is Henry David; I live in Rabat, Morocco. As far as I know, I am earth’s last survivor of “The Hunt”. Let me take you to when this all started, it began 13 years ago when I was about 18 years of age; a strange craft was discovered in the deserts of Cairo, Egypt. The crafts design was unearthly and when its design was cross referenced with other existing crafts no matches were found. About a year after the crafts discovery by UFO Investigator Abubaker Mohamad, strange markings were found on the ships interior. A team of translators were immediately sent, I was among them, I and my team spent hours trying to crack the strange markings, to no avail.
We continued our research when American UFO Investigator Veronica Mendez accidently found out that the ship had a rear entrance about 10 feet high and 3 feet wide indicating that whatever used the ship was big. I was one of the very first to board the vessel, we discovered what seemed to be almost like pilot controls, but the technology was I lot more advanced than anything I had ever seen. While exploring the vessel, I noticed the same strange markings that were on the outside on the inside of the ship. This led me to the conclusion that these beings had to be civilized and educated. I ran my fingers across the markings and they began to light up. Down the hallway a door flew open to reveal an undiscovered area of the ship.
I entered the room and found strange beings gathered around a device that was changing the markings on the ships walls into English letters. I gasped, then one of the creatures turned around and look at me. It didn’t seem to be phased by my presence in the room. It obviously knew that I was different, it approached me. The creature had tentacles for legs, its arms were also tentacles with human like fingers on the ends, it had no visible mouth, it’s eyes were huge oval shaped stone like things with a deep black color. When the creature was about five feet away from me it stopped and curiously looked down at my legs.
After it finished it changed its legs from tentacles to human legs! The creature then offered me its hand, I had mixed feelings when it came to my decision. I went with my gut and took his hand, the very instant I did the creature’s fingertips shot out tentacles that locked to my arm. I tried to get away but the creature was intent on not letting me go. I looked up at the creature, then in my head I heard a voice saying: “Know me”.
