The Unforgettable Camping Trip

By PepperminPatti

Action / Scifi

Rain, Shine, and a Blue Police Box

Pitter patter pitter patter pitter patter. Rain drummed on the roof of our moth-eaten tent, causing several dripping leaks. It was a rather rude awaking, know that I think about it. Cold rain water dripping on my hair, flowing down my neck. My little sister Camilla had the same problem, accept the rain dripped through her sleeping bag, making her socks soggy. Now we sit in the corner, huddled in towels, using plastic buckets to collect the rain.

"What time is it?" Camilla asks me. She had just sat there, staring at the dripping rain, just because there was nothing better to do. After all, there's only so many times you can play finger chess.

I check my watch. "It's 9:13. Dad's supposed to pick us up at 12:45." I inform her.

Camilla sighs. "Can you just call Dad and tell him to pick us up now? There's nothing to do." She questions.

"I'll try, but Dad probably forgot to charge his phone." I answer. I fumbled around in my backpack and grab it. I dial Dad's number and wait.

"Hi, you have reached Jerry Brown. I'm not available right now, so please leave me a message after the beep." My father's voice iterates. After the beep, I record my message.

"Hey Dad, its Amara. Its raining cats and dogs right now, so is there any chance you can pick us up early? Thanks, bye." I say.

"Um, Amara," Camilla asks, "Why are we on this camping trip anyway?"

"Well, Mom was in California for her business trip, and since she knew that we really liked the last camping trip we all went together, she booked this one, kind of as a 'I'm home' celebration. But her flight got delayed, so she she called Dad and convinced him to let us come on our own." I tell her.

"But why would Mom book a camping trip when there's a rainstorm?" she questions.

"Well thats the thing. This storm came out of nowhere, no one predicted it" I explain. Then in an instant, the rain stops.

"Yay! The rain is gone!" Camilla cheers. "Lets go outside!"

"Woah woah woah, slow down. The ground is soaking wet outside, so get your rain boots on." I tell her. We get our boots on and get outside.

"Hey, wait a second. Something's wrong." I stomp the ground, but instead of a wet, muddy surface, rubber collides with dry dirt. "What the?"

"Amara, look over there." Camilla instructs. And I don't believe my eyes. There is someone cooking breakfast over a campfire!

"This is getting weird." I comment.

"Yea." Camilla replies." One minute it we have a thunderstorm, and the next minute its like it never happened.

" Maybe we're dreaming?" I suggest.

" Only one way to find out." Camilla says. So we pinch ourselves at the same time.

" I don't think we're dreaming." I point out. " Well, it was a stupid theory in the first place."

" Yea, it would be kinda weird if we were having the same dream." She comments." And where are you going?"

" I'm getting my video camera. I want to film this for our vlog." I inform Camilla.

" What's that noise?" Camilla asks.

" What noise?" Then I hear it. A strange, wirring sound fills the forest.

" Oh my god." Camilla says, spellbound. I can't speak. Who could when a blue police box appears in your campsite out of thin air.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Roger A. Fauble: Excellent read, the only thing not to like is that I could only read it at home on my computer. I'm a character reader, I get into the characters, their story, who/what they are. In this story characters are introduced and developed allowing you to really get into them. Next the story is develop...

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

shawnas26: I knocked it out in one sitting and enjoyed it thoroughly. Thanks for sharing! :) I'll be looking forward to reading the next in the series.

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

Nate_L: I started to read this, excited about the story line. The writing style only made me more excited, I was stunned by Mikes ability to put this kind of story into words. It's Dashner-style, simple but sophisticated... (Makes sense to me, lol!)The beginning was a tad confusing, as I thought she was ...

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
