After a sleepless night of tossing and turning, I woke up feeling terrified. I was disturbed by an awful dream about aliens and outer space creatures. I dreamt of a flat spherical object that landed on the playground next to my house. From it, small bald green creatures, with one large eye and three antennae on their head marched out. They had thin knife-like laser guns in their hands and a short sword stuck in their belt. Their belt also had a remote control panel with many buttons on it. Though it was dark, an eerie purple light fell on the area where they walked.
They flew up to my room on the first floor and entered through the window, though it was closed. They kidnapped me and took me back to their spaceship. They knew no manners for they pulled me to their space ship with my legs. They spoke no English. Instead, many sounds came from their body in vibrations. They returned to their land and put me in an invisible cage. From their hand gestures, I understood that they were going to perform some chemical experiments on me…. Just then I work up with a start and thanked God that that was just a dream !!
To refresh myself and shake out my terrible thoughts, I washed my face and decided to eat something. I did not want to disturb my parents, so I decided to raid the refrigerator. I did not switch on the light. The moon lit my way. I tiptoed downstairs and entered the pantry…
There were some noises coming from the kitchen. I slowly pushed open the kitchen door with my heart in my mouth. There were two shadowy small green creatures near the fridge. The sight I saw, shocked me and I shrieked out loudly and fainted…..
When I regained consciousness, I was on the couch, with my mother holding my hand. My little sister and her friend, Varshne (who was spending the night with her) were standing near me giggling away to glory. They had their green blanket wrapped around them. I realized my mistake and felt very sheepish and silly!
