All This Ticking: Book One

All of a sudden, I was at a scientist’s lab, and the scientist’s name was Dr. Crook.

“Dr. Crook, I need a time machine,” I said.

“I’ll be quick as a bunny,” Dr. Crook said.

Five hours later, I hopped into the machine, which was shaped like a cookie jar. The machine had a voice box.

“Bye, world,” I said.

“Would you like to go into the past or fast forward?”

“I choose. . . fast forward!!!!”

So, I went to the year 2041. I went twenty-six years forward. When I got out, it felt like the ground was as smooth as the road. The cars were long and big there the size of a school bus. I saw someone sitting down, waiting for the bus. She looked like a girl that had gotten out of middle school, and her clothes were beautiful. Her top was blue on the top and it changed to purple on the bottom. She was wearing a blue skirt. She wore Jordans, and her hair was straight and red. I walked to her.

She said, “Hi, my name is Jasmine. And yours?”

I said, “Hi, my name is Sarah.” I said to myself: I’m really a fairy.

Six year later, we became best friends. And she told me her secret: she is a fairy, too! Then we ruled the world with nice power!
