The adventure a 13 year old faces in sace.Packed with suspense and thriller,it makes a perfect story for a kid who loves adventure.Enjoy!!!




I gazed at the clouds blue in colour and I knew that soon I would be far far away....I was right now in the stratosphere zone and before I know I will be on the .......hold your breath, if you are drinking a glass of water or eating anything then stop doing all these and read .....I will be on moon!!!!! I know that you are thinking about what a big liar I am,but I am not and I swear....well let me tell you my story I am Sara Helen and am 13. A couple of months back we had Neil Armstrong for the world space week celebrations in our school and I told him that going to moon or space is no big deal and it was just like getting into a flight and landing somewhere and so he challenged me,he told me to take my dad and some crew with experience and all...but now I know that it was a big mistake doing so because I have had the most difficult time of my life.....right now..I mean edible toothpaste and dehydrated food and all...all these are really getting on my nerves...what to do I myself am responsible for all these tongue is really going too far I know that I can control it if I really want to but I simply just can't...I decided to behave well in future and think twice before speaking...hehe...


whatever,anyway I just finished my meals now and was talking to dad about moon and our experience in space so far.Well my opinion is just okay I can't be sure about this journey being good because I don't know what I might come across at moon well I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything will be fine and I will reach home safely you know thinking about kalpana chawla just send chills down my spine.She was some baveheart.




''hey dad whats all this noise about??''I asked.Our spaceship was moving violently and I was damn scared.”there's nothing wrong right??”

''no...there is problem we are moving in the wrong direction there's some major problem..hope everything gets ok''One of the crew said.The space ship continued to move in this manner it was as if the machine was doing circus in the middle of nowhere.''get ok and started up stupid machine”.I shouted,I know it's lame but who wouldn't shout when something goes wrong in the middle of nowhere??

''hey whats this?''Dad said when suddenly the spaceship came to a halt.

''good god we are on M-A-R-S!!!''said one of the crew.

''Sarah remain here we'll just get down and see whether things are okay for you to get down..''Dad said and all of them got down. I waited patiently till dad called me.

''sarah you can come here..everything seems ok..''Dad called .With a racing heart I got down the spaceship.I couldn't believe it,I was actually on mars.

''I wonder if there are aliens''I said out loud,but I think I spoke too soon because soon we were surrounded by aliens.They were looking very weird, so scary and their faces were triangle in shape,eyes were like crystal beads and it kept rotating and they had bony but strong hands anad legs which looked like steel,and the wore some kind of jacket with hundreds of buttons and switches.

“who are you all?”,My father picked up courage and asked.

”same question to you”Shot back the aliens.

''we are humans from earth''One of the crew said.

''oho..then say your last prayers and be fast, goodbye to your motherland...eartttttt......and say goodbye to the universe...”They said.

I was drenched in sweat well who wouldn't be,obviously??

''look....we did'nt know that this was your planet or that you guys even exists, we really didn't know that there were aliens and we promise not to harm you let us go.... please”I had taken up the charge of speaking I couldn't restrain myself.

''hey mind your language little tot, we are not aliens we are the martians you foolish humans are the alienssss..hahaha.”They snarled.

''look can't we make peace??we are sorry we landed on mars, we won't take over your land we will respect mars and you martians promise”I said keeping my fingers crossed.

“ya keep your promises with humans have already did so much of harm to us sending things like the mars rover and all.....hmph!!”.The aliens ....oops sorry the M-A-R-T-I-A-N-S were really angry.

“we told you right??we didn't know you guys existed we swear we won't make this news!!SWEAR........”.I started crying usually I am brave......but not today!!!

“what guarantee do we have???how can we believe if  you are true to your words?you are all born liars!”.They shouted

''oh come on....we swear please please a thousand pretty please leave us”.I said

''yes please ''Joined the crew.I grasped dad's hand.He looked at me, he was really scared,his hands were as cold as ice,that was the first time I saw him so scared.

“wait we will discuss”said the leader of the martians.Those words made me a little relieved.There was still a little chance of escaping.After some tensed moments the Martians showed up again.I eagerly twitched up my fingers were still crossed.

“we have decided to let you go....but on one condition that you won't tell about our existence....promise??”The leader said.There came shouts of joy and happiness,obvioulsy!!.I had tears in my eyes

''thanks guys...we promise not to open our mouth about all this...”I thanked them happily.

''ok now to be sure we are going to give you a small pocket machine which will send us signals about your doings so mind all ur words ....this has a special skill of sending messages if you talk about us or hide it or throw it or anything so mind you”The martians said.

“guaranteed”Dad shouted.

“yoohoooo....yeah”That was some moment of hapiness...something beyond happiness infact.And so the martians helped us repair our space craft and we flew back to our homeland ,our dear earth...with that little machine in hands...we told everyone about a fake adventure in space.

Well...anyway right now I am sitting at home realising that all this was....ummm....a dream!!!!!but i think it's better to call this horrible dream a nightmare....haha...

This was pretty funny and very enjoyable. Liked the ending of it being a dream. Or was it?

That was cute :) The aliens-- or MARTIANS, as they insist-- weren't at all welcoming, but at least they were allowed to go. Good ending and imaginative :) Keep writing!
