It was the night before my birthday when it had begun. Something was lurking around the neighborhood. I had a feeling it was bad so I grabbed my ray gun and headed out of my house and kept an eye out for danger.
It was searching though garbage cans while I snuck up to the alien. It spotted me and soon I blacked
When I awoke up I wa in a giant bubble. I panicked and screamed so loud the poorly made bubble popped and I escaped.
Soon the alien invasion had begun. The planet Nerptron grabbed their blasters and attacked. The aliens lost and we won.
The last few words they said were, “We will seek our revenge, same day, same time, oh, and we shall ruin your birthday once more in the future.”
