Rank 8 Out of 10
On 19 December 2013, I came to my home from my school and I was really tired that say, so after praying and changing my clothes I lay on my bed. It was raining a bit and suddenly there was a bolt of lightning along with a thunder and a big man appeared beside the window, his face was covered in a mask and he was wearing a coat and a hat. I noticed that he was pointing at something, a box. Then again there was a loud sound of thunder and he was gone!
I looked at the box, still scared, hoping the man won’t come again. I hesitated but I gathered my courage and went towards the black cardboard box. On it was written:
"If you are ready for an adventure then open it and be prepared for the once in a life time journey"
I wondered whether a witch or a monster will jump out of the box and eat me, but I wanted my suspense to go away so I opened with my eyes closed but when I opened it, in it was a coat with gloves and black ugg boots. The sun was bright again and there was light all over the room, making everything look fresh. I took out the coat and wore it when I looked at the mirror and believe me I looked like an agent or something. I suddenly noticed that on the coat was some colourful buttons like and something was written on them like: past time, future time, imaginary land etc
I pressed the button "past time". I thought nothing would happen but I was wrong not only a second had passed that in front me my parents were sitting in a garden, having a picnic and beside them two young boys were playing and on my mom's lap was a child. I looked at them for five minutes with a smile on my face and as I went took a step forward towards them I suddenly decided not to go to them because they might say I'm a stranger. I was going to press "planet" button but a thought shot at my mind and so i again pressed the "past" button and was in 1969. People wore very weird clothes and the cars were very old fashioned. I grabbed a newspaper nearby and hurriedly pressed "planet".
I suddenly realized that I was on moon, the place where I've always wanted to go. I thought I might die as there was no oxygen but when I looked at my hands, they were covered. The suit had suddenly changed into space suit! It was weird because it was hot in that suit. I looked around wondering whether  there is an alien or not but nah there wasn’t but I saw a flag of America, with anger I torn it apart and when I saw in the newspaper the flag of my homeland ,Pakistan, I thought “ My lucky day..”. Taking the flag I placed it on the pole where once was of America’s. Feeling really proud, pressed the button “imaginary land” and suddenly a girl with long, red and beautiful hairs crashed on top of me. Soon I realized it was my favourite anime character of naruto, Uzumaki Kushina! I looked at her in disbelief. “Sorry for that, ya know” she said. But I didn’t listen to what she said and kept looking at her. But when she said “Oi! Are you okay?” Then I got into my senses. Some of her friends came and I introduced them to myself. Kushina seemed happy as I told her the whole story of mine and when I told her about her future, she was a bit shocked. She took me to some awesome places and showed me around. In the end, we went to a cliff where we could see everything and the view was very beautiful. I wondered if I could fly but then an idea shot at my mind and it was “It’s an imaginary world…” I was going to fly when Kushina said “Are you mad?” I replied “Yup and that’s why in this world your imagination becomes reality!” and I jumped, scared. But I could feel the refreshing air! For a moment I thought I am falling but when I opened my eyes, I was actually flying! I shouted with happiness and it was so great that it was beyond my thinking. I could see the sunset, the orange clouds, and the birds. It was getting very late and I was missing my home so I thanked everyone for the wonderful adventure and all the fun and said goodbye to them. I was almost about to hit the ‘real world’ button when I realized I still haven’t been to my future. So I hurriedly pressed the ‘future’ button and there I was sitting in a room. I looked around myself and saw a lady wearing an overall, who was seeing some papers. She looked as if she was doctor and my guess was right but still I did not know who she was or what’s her name. “So, what’s your problem?” she asked. “umm….can you please tell me where I am and who are you?” I asked. She said “You are in Diamond Medical College or you can say Diamond hospital and my name is Naaemah Saleem” she replied, confused. My mouth fell open and I was about to faint and she too was shocked to see me. I suddenly heard someone shouting my name. I looked around but I could see no one. I thought it was just a sound in my mind but again I heard someone shouting and this I could feel someone shaking me badly. I was terrified and suddenly my eyes opened. My mom was saying to me “Wake up! You’ve been sleeping for three hours!” I was confused because a moment ago I was in my future and now I am in my bed with my mom shouting at me to wake up. I looked around and I was in my room.
Soon I realized it was just a dream instead of an adventure
