On one very hot summer evening Sue and her friends were swimming in Sue’s fun, pink pool. They were talking about how glad they were that school was over. Then Sue’s friend Alice asked a weird question, “Have you ever met an alien named Bobby or Rose?”
“What are you talking about? Aliens aren’t real! You do know that, right?” said Nancy.
Nancy was always mean to Alice and other people. Sue didn’t want to invite her but she had too.
“Nobody knows for sure Nancy!!!!” That was the first time Alice talked back to Nancy because Alice was always so scared of Nancy but not anymore.
“WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY TO ME?!?!?!” screamed Nancy.
“I just said nobody knows,” replied Alice.
Then all of a sudden, the sky turned very dark and got very cold. But it was very hot and sunny a minute ago. All of Sue’s friends were so scared. Then out of the blue they thought they saw a huge bubble with millions of different color lights coming down. Then yhe bubble came closer and closer to Sue’s friends. “Is that …”
“I think it is …”
“A UFO!!!!!!” yelled everyone.
The UFO came crashing down right next to Sue’s pink pool where everyone was swimming.
“Help, Help, Help I don’t want to die, I’m too young Help, Help, Help!!!!!” shouted Nancy over and over again. Intil Alice said, “We all don’t want to die and we are all too young. So just be quiet. OK?”
“NO!!!!! 1 will not listen to you!” said Nancy.
“You know what!!! You guys can die by yourself. Alice out!!!” yelled Alice as she ran away as fast as a cheetah.
“No Alice don’t go l need you … we need you please come back,” screamed Sandy, another of Sue’s friends.
Then Alice felt bad for leaving so she came back. When she was running back, she slipped on an orange peel on the sidewalk but she got back up and was back with her friends.
Something big, green, tall and very ugly came out of the UFO with something very small, yellow, short and only a little ugly. Everyone was shaking and some were even crying with fright.
“Do you come in peace?” asked Sue.
“I don’t know, do you?” asked the tall alien.
“Yes if you do,” replied Sue.
Then the two aliens started talking. But no one could understand what they were saying. “Sure I guess,” said the tall alien.
“I wonder what their names are?” asked Alice in a whisper.
“Our names are Bobby and Rose.
“Well hi Bobby, hi Rose.”
“No No I’m Rose, she’s Bobby.”
“But aren’t you a boy and she’s a girl? Um, never mind.” Rose has a special power that can make him hear anything near or far. Wow Bobby also has a special power that lets her read people’s minds near and far.
“How did they know I asked that?” Alice said.
“Why don’t you just ask them?” asked Taylor.
“Would you ask? No, I don’t think so!” said Alice. “Sorry, I’m just really scared.”
“I know me too!” replied Taylor.
Then Alice and Taylor hugged. “You really have to do this right here when we can die at any minute?” whispered Sofia.
“Well if I die I want to die friends with Taylor and everyone else,” said Alice.
“Fine I guess. Just be quiet,” said Sofia.
“Wait, your names are Bobby and Rose?” Alice asked.
“Yes,” they replied.
“See I told you their names were Bobby and Rose. I knew your names but they didn’t believe me,” said Alice.
“Great, won’t you come closer to us so we can see you?” said Bobby.
“Who?” they all asked at once.
“Why?” asked Sandy.
“Because we … want to see your face very close?!?!?!” Bobby said unsurely.
“Well ok?” said Alice and starting walking towards Rose and Bobby.
“ALICE!!!!!!!” shouted everyone. But Alice kept walking to Rose and Bobby like she was under a spell.
“Thank you for your friend, you will see her … NEVER!!!” said Rose as Bobby and him took Alice in their UFO and flew off.
Then the sky got sunny and warm again. “What are we going to do? We can’t just leave Alice with Rose and Bobby because if they did come in peace they wouldn’t have taken Alice!!!!! shouted Sandy.
“Nancy are you crying?” asked Sofia.
“No my eyes are sweating” replied Nancy.
“Nancy you don’t have to lie to us. We know you were crying,” said Taylor.
“Ok, ok maybe I was but I don’t like her but I miss her and I’m sad she’s gone” sniffed Nancy.
“We all miss her and are sad she’s gone but we like her,” said Sofia.
“You know what. I’m not just going to stand here and do nothing about Alice missing! I’m going to get Alice back. Who’s with me?” Sue exclaimed.
“We are!” said everyone.
“Let’s go ask my Mom,” said Sue.
“Really, your mom won’t let us go save Alice so let’s just go, ok?” said Taylor.
“Well, where is Rose, Bobby and Alice?” asked Sandy.
“I saw their UFO by Cindy’s house down the street. We have to get in the UFO and save Alice!” shouted Sofia.
“We don’t even have a plan to get in the UFO?” said Sandy.
“Well let’s just go to Cindy’s house and play it by ear,” said Sue.
Cindy and her family weren’t home because they were in Canada to see her Grandma Betty Sue.
“Ok let’s go though the back door. Follow my lead,” said Sue.
Then everyone saw the UFO. But Rose, Bobby and Alice were in this girl named May’s backyard.
“The UFO door is open lets go in,” said Sue.
Then they all went into the UFO.
“This UFO is so huge it can fit a town in here!” said Taylor.
“Not really,” said Nancy.
Then Taylor pushed Nancy and laughed.
“We need to hide but first we need weapons. C’mon, follow me” said Sue.
Then they went into a room filled with weapons they could maybe use. “Everyone take two … maybe three. Now let’s hide” said Sue.
After they hid Rose, Bobby and Alice came back into the UFO.
Rose and Bobby told Alice to sit and stay in the room where everyone was hiding. Then Rose and Bobby left.
“Now’s our time, lets go” said Sue.
“Alice … Alice can you hear me?” asked Sandy.
Then Alice turned around in her chair and said, “What are you guys doing here?”
“We came to save you!!!” replied Sofia.
“Man, am I happy to see you guys!!” squealed Alice. “Come on, Lets get out of here. Lets go. Now.”
They were running out of the huge bubble UFO, asking Alice questions about what happened.
“If you want me to live, you won’t ask me or talk to anyone about this ever, and l mean EVER again.”
