    Challenge Phrase
    Alien Abduction
  2. Five people are waking up in some kind of abduction room, they have no memories of what had happened or why they were there. Some small grey men walked in to the room, they looked a litle human to how their body looked but they were much smaller and had to big eyes to be human, their fingers were long and small. The people that were laying tied on the abduction tables starred frightened to death on the thing that walked in to the room, if they could they would probably scream but their mouth’s were covered so they wouldn’t be able to talk.

    The Aliens just looked at them and touched their bodies, probably to see how their bodies were built. Then they left the room, but they would soon be back. If the people in the room were going to survive then they needed to escape fast, but how are they going to do that? <o:p></o:p>
  3. A boy makes constant remarks about seeing UFO's and everyone only gives him dirty looks and calls him crazy. The boy constantly tells him its true and that at night, he see's them. He even mentions that he almost has a close encounter with one. But, the people only mumble that he is a crazy child with an over active imagination. The boy turns away, angry and full of rage that none believes him, making him angry. The boy dashes passed the people and heads towards Colony Fields. The place where he saw one of the UFO's land. To his suprise he doesn't see a single crop circle anywhere.

    It was a big disappointment that there wasn't anything there and he stomped angrily on the ground. Swearing under his breathe. In the heat of his rage a gust of wind picks up, but over his head. He stops and looks up. What came next was shock, like ice down his spine as he realized what hovered above his head. A real-life UFO!!! But, it wasn't like the ones he had seen in movies on T.V. with the blinking lights, no no. It was plain if anything. The look was still stunning to the boy as he took a step back, scarred for his life.

    The hatch at the bottom base of the ship opened up and flashed a bright light, the boy felt his mind go blank and his vision go black. His head dropped and he mindlessly walked towards the ship like a zombie. Up the escalator-like stairs the ship let down. The light as well as the ship vanished into the thicket of the night.

    The boy was released from his mind control once he made his way to a strange laboratory. The walls were all white as well as he they were aligned with pods that circled the room. The pods were all dusty,so he couldn't really make out what it was. Out of sheer curiousity, he makes his way towards a pod dead in front of him, walking hesitantly. Once he is close, he wipes the pods glass and jumps back in fear. A human body, floated in the pod and connected to some type of device. He now knew that he wasn't crazy. He had to show this evidence to the townspeople.

    But how would he when he had no idea where he was? He sat down as he began to think. Soon after a wide door, about 5 feet wide lifts up. Three shadowy figures appear in the door.

    Who could they be and what would they do to him?
