Never did I start posting the novel. Though quickly I would tell you that it was because I scraped that idea and today I start with a new one . I Hope you enjoy it. Genres are sci-fi and comedy.
Annie Stops Time Frankly
Note: This book is a work of fiction, any co-incidence with any person’s life living or dead is just awesome and we should dedicate our lives to find and ask him/her how to do it.
The Time of Manfish’s Life
Annie was no stranger to science fiction, but she was comfortable with it because it was after all fiction. So, when a spaceship stopped over her house to beam her in. She was surprised.
“Lady, You have to tell us the story from the beginning and we want no personal notes just account the story chronologically!” the green man said. His fin ears stooped.
“As always” Annie began yet again, this time trying to keep her story as impersonal as she could, just want to go home now. ”I was ready to take off to school with my mom” she told them, “When I felt as suddenly everything stopped. I was alone in my room at that moment. It was a very weird feeling.”
“C’mon Ms Greene. Please keep your feelings out of the narrative. We have no place for them.”
Annie stopped a bit irritated for being cut off for such a small mistake. It was almost impossible to make the story completely free of her feelings, being completely opposite in nature to what she had learnt to do all her life. “Ok” She took a deep breath and continued. “ To ..er… investigate if I was indeed correct, I went down and was surprised to see everything frozen in time.”
“So you called a number?” he asked.
“I called my country’s emergency number not that I thought it would work but I was panicking and had no idea what to do next.” She told him.
“Record this” the green man told his assistant “The signal through which she was found was her calling an emergency number.” He turned his gaze towards Annie again. “ Please Continue.”
“Well, nothing happened when I dialled it, but seconds later with a pulling sensation I was on a spaceship. I tried to take hold of myself after it beamed me up”.
“Teleported you up!”
“Yeah, whatever beaming is the term for it I know from Star Trek”
“No, beaming and transporting are different things totally. One involves carbon copying of every molecule in your body and destruction of the original one. Teleporting is actual transport of every molecule in from the pickup to destination point”
“ I don’t see how this helps the story” asked Annie very irritably.
“Keeps our records 100% correct. A pulling sensation can only be due to actual transport.”
“Okay.” Annie took a long breath again. “Obviously, at once I didn’t know that I was in a spaceship because as far as I knew they didn’t exist. So I tried to hide myself under the couch in the room I was in, when I heard approaching footsteps. That’s when he found me.”
“Who found you?” he asked.
“How?” he asked.
“Well he was on the spaceship” replied Annie.
“No why did you slip out from under the couch?” he asked.
“He called me by name and said I was not to fear him, as he was after all a half-human “replied Annie.
“Didn’t that startle you?” asked the green fishoid humanoid.
“Well time stopped, and I was teleported atleast he was half-human.”
“Hmmm… So you did not panic?”
“Didn’t get the time. It’s only now that I have got enough time to do that.”
“Okay, let’s hear more.”
“I slipped out and he helped me stand up. I thanked him and blurted out in a second if I was going crazy?”
“You thought you were crazy?”
“Not exactly, I was just thinking if someone had slipped me some psychedelic in the weed I smoked last night.”
“Weed? That Stuff that grows in water on earth. Why do you people smoke it? “asked the human-fishoid.
“No not that weed. Drugs weed. Marijuana weed.”
“Which psychedelic you thought you had been given?”
“The Mind-twisting realistic hallucinations inducing kind.” replied Annie bitingly.”Do you really want the listen to the whole story or are you just messing with me. Don’t tell me this is some sort of an intergalactic hyper-real prank.”
“This is no prank, I can tell you that.”
“Then please shut up!”
“He told me that I was not going crazy, but things happening around me were crazy. He made me sit on the couch and told me that he’ll go fetch me a glass of water. And he was back in few seconds with it, so after accepting the bottle I asked the first sane question . To quote me” Exactly what is going crazy besides me?”. He replied everything.”
“Did you fall in love at first sight with that guy, huh?” the fishmanoid asked.
“I didn’t fall in no bull at first shit.”
“So what did he replied.”
“He told me that there exists an organization in intergalactic space which protects new young worlds from the knowledge of existence of interspatial society till they themselves are advanced and ready enough to seek it out, so the development of those planets are according to their planet’s natural course. This organisation known as the space patrol delta also keeps people from other developed planets from exploiting the underdeveloped ones.”
“Don’t tell me that didn’t sound phony!”
“You have no idea. I mean Space Patrol Delta. I could have done better, but unfortunately I was shocked enough to believe it that time. “
“Just so you know your planet didn’t come in extra-terrestrial contact because it’s located in uncharted regions of the third-stars galaxy The Milky Way which has virtually no resources. No wonder we didn’t know that there was even a planet with fourth-grade intelligence. The best we found was planet inhabited with grade-five intelligence honoic carbones or in your colloquial terms bacterium.”
“You are lucky that I don’t consider it offensive.”
“Why would you? You people don’t even have a interplanetary travel. Neither has the bacteria.”
“It’s not the same we have cars to traverse our own world.”
“Bacteria can do that too and without the need for wasting resources for that.”
“What about shuttles, planes, the educational system.”
“I did give you one higher grade, didn’t I?”
Annie breathed out again. It was hard to remain calm, but she needed to get home. “Ok”, she said “May I go on?”
