It was a peaceful day on Rison planet when a large spaceship landed on our planet looking for something.
When they reached our door, I knew what they lost — Neutron energy for their guns so that they could use them again. Soon they saw me and thought that I took it, but I knew they trusted me.
So they decided to go to the next door. My parents knew I would not do it, they would catch me.
Then the news came on and said a mystery person stole the Neutron and is using it to destroy the planet.
But we found out that it was Dorlock, so we took him to jail — the end!!!
