The Spaceship

Emma’s POV

"SPACESHIP!!!!!" I screamed as I jerked my head forward and realized that I was in my bed. What?

That's when I realized...

"I'm so stupid!" I said to myself, "It was just a lousy dream. Aliens aren't real... Right?"

No. They aren't. They're not real. I am just freaking out. I'm fine. ALIENS AREN'T REAL. But, what if?

Ughhh! The more I denied alien existence, the more I second guessed myself.

Then I heard a small knock on my door. "AHHHHHH!!!! Get away! Get away! Get away!"

"It's just me, peanut. Is everything okay in there?"

"Yeah I'm fine!" I yelled back, "It was just a bad dream."

"Do you want to talk about it?" My dad replied.


"And then I woke up" I said concluding my explanation of my dream.

My dad hummed as he nodded his head, but I could see a slight since of worry in his face.

"Oh dad!"I said suddenly remembering, "only thirty more days till the blood moon!"

"That's exciting." My dad said trying to hide his concern, "Still up for the annual camping in the back yard?"

"I'd never miss it for the world!"

*Or another world*

What? What was that?

"You okay?" My dad said confused.

"That wasn't you?" I asked as my dad shook his head, "Oh, I was probably just imagining things..."

Today was Saturday. I was excited to sleep in, but I kept waking up in the night because I was having the same dream about the aliens.

I was honestly starting to get nervous. Was it a sign? Or was it just my imagination mixed with fear?

I decided that I needed to get some fresh air. I decided to go for a bike ride.

I got dressed and went downstairs.

"Where you going, peanut?" My dad said when I got downstairs.

"Just on a quick bike ride." I replied as I opened the door.

I hopped onto my bike and took off down the street. The wind felt so good in my hair and I could feel all of the alien worries slip away.

Then I decided to go pick up donuts at the donuts shop by our house. It wasn't that far, so my dad shouldn't care.

When I got there, I ordered my dad and my favorite donuts and payed. When they handed me the donuts I set them in my basket and was about to leave when I saw a light by their dump truck.

I rode a little closer, and heard some indistinct chattering from behind the dumpster. It sounded like what was in my dream, only slightly different. I was about to turn the corner when-

"Hey! Get out a' there!"

"Huh?" I said as I turned my head around sharply.

"I said, get out a' there!"

It was one of the donut shop's workers. She was peering out of the drive thru window.

"Are you deaf!?" She yelled at me.
"Oh, sorry..." I said embarrassed as I quickly drove away from the shop.

When I got home, I set the donuts on the counter and called my dad.

"Daaaaad! I have a surprise!"

"Is it donuts?" My dad asked back.

I frowned, "How did you know?"

"I'm your dad, I always know... Plus I got a charge on my credit card for two donuts, and I couldn't find my credit card."

I smirked, "Oh yeah, I forgot about that."

I decided I wanted to go to the library so my dad dropped me off, since it was too far to ride my bike.

When I got there, I immediately went over to the sci-fi books, which I never go to.
I went to the "A's" and looked for "Aliens".
Surprisingly, there were a ton of them. But, one book caught my eye.
"The Real Witness Of An Alien, by Carol Schunal." I whispered to myself, reading the title.
I went up to the library desk to check out the book. The lady at the desk was old, kind of chubby, and sour looking.
She was looking at her desk, so I cleared my throat to get her attention. She looked at me annoyed and stared at my book.
She seemed nervous.
"Are you okay?" I asked.
"Ugh, you earth scum." She said under her breath to where I wasn't super sure what she said.
I checked out my book and left.

It was now night time. I decided to go back to the donut store to check on the light, because they are now closed. If they are closed, they can't kick me out!
I walked closer to the dump, because the light was still there. As I got closer, I noticed that there was no noises coming from behind the dump, unlike last time.
Clutching my new book, I walked a little closer.
