Lately in class we have been working on sentence structure and word choice. We found this video called ‘Death in Space’, which is exactly what it sounds like. I chose the first one to write a paragraph about, and today I’m going to share it with you.
Eaten by an Alien
As I bounced from foot to foot along a new, rocky, grey planet, I studied the randomly sized craters, taking notes in my head. N.A.S.A. was going to be so proud of me when I got back from this mission, because I discovered a whole new planet! Excitedly, I thought of cool names for this strange world. The weird sized craters were what really caught my attention. I wondered if the planet got lots of meteorites and powerful explosions.
Suddenly, I noticed a strange and out of place thing up ahead. It was curved out of a crater, which was cracked and misshapen. The thing was dark grey, covered in silver goo, and had little lines all over it that looked like wrinkles or sly smiles. Was it a space-tree? Or a cactus without spikes?
As I approached, I slowly reached out my hand to touch it. I poked it. Swiftly, immediately, the thing burst to life. It had no eyes, no nose, no ears, but I wish it didn’t have a mouth.
As quickly as an angry rattlesnake, it flashed its crammed mouth full of pointed sharp teeth, and devoured me down in one obnoxious bite. For a moment I could almost feel my blood trickling down the alien’s throat, until everything went black, and I was in so much pain and torture that I couldn’t even take my final breath.
