I turned on the TV and I was quickly awoken by what I saw. The Leader Obama, who had been in charge of the world for 3 years ( I'll explain later), was explaining to the world that they have been in contact with alien beings from the far away galaxy of Auguston. The Alien leader requested to hold a press conference to explain to the world who and what they are. Obama said they agreed and the press conference will air live that night at 6pm. As I cut the TV off, I grabbed my bible and read my daily verse. Then I woke the children up for school. Took them to school after breakfast and came home to enjoy my day off. First day off in about 2 months. I sat in the lazy boy and my mind wonders off. I relive memories mostly from the early days of my marriage. When I first met Kimberly I was a high school big shot. She stole my heart immediately. The sad thing was her heart plus mine only equaled one fully heathy heart. Kim didn’t make it to her 29th birthday, passing away peacefully at home through the night. I wake up and look at my phone. Clock read "12:32 pm" Wow I must've been really worn out. I grabbed my bible and read a couple verses. Ate some lunch and left some in the microwave for the boys. Jeff, 8, and Walter, 12, will be hungry after a long day of school. I get showered and head out to the dept. store. I decided to get the boys the skateboards they have been asking for. I stand in line at the register and I overhear the talks around me. All were about the press conference at 6pm. I wasn’t interested in the talks as I checked he time on my wrist watch. "2:15pm." I paid for my things and headed to the school to pick up my boys. Walter and Jeff walked to the car and we rode off. Walter asked if I heard about the press conference. I told him yeah. That was the end that talk. Over the radio the Leader of the world was ordering everyone to watch the press conference. Obama became world leader a year after his second term ended. When Bryce Connor took office after Obama he mysteriously disappeared. Never to be found to the day. Obama was chosen by "High Ranking Officials" to be president again. A year later at the U.N. meeting every leader decided to just let Obama become "World Leader." No one knows why they allowed Obama to become head of the world but they did in just one day. We finished dinner and I cleaned up the kitchen. Walter yelled for me. I walked into to the living room where two military officials were standing. They introduced themselves and informed me they were sent to every household in the country to make everyone tuned into the press conference.  I thought this was strange but didn’t express it because I didn’t want to scare my children. The clock struck 6pm and the cartoons my boys were watching were interrupted. Obama was sitting behind a table next to another man with very pale skin and blonde hair. The pale man introduced himself as Arminiti. He said they have been watching us for centuries. The pale alien went on about himself and his species. But at the end of the press conference he said Earth was I danger.  He said in the upcoming years the weather on earth will become extremely dangerous to our species and would threaten our existence. Walter asked if we will be alright. I said of course and cut the tv off. The military official ordered me to turn it back on. So I did, just as I turned it on, the screen was a blank white with something talking in a weird futuristic language. I turned to my kids and they were both sleep. This was strange it was only 6:28pm and they were just awake. I turned back to the tv it was Obama. He apologized for what was going to happen next but he said it was necessary for the survival of mankind. Just then I was hit in the head from behind and knocked unconscious. When I woke up, I was in a very small, all-white padded room. I was completely naked. I felt pain on my right side when I went to stand up. I looked under the paper gown I was wearing and there was a stitched incision. I was hoping this was a dream. I walked to the door to look through the small window. Outside the room were many rooms just like mine. Where am I? What is this place? Where are my boys? What's going to happen to us?
