Your class will be writing one or two paragraph(s) as a class group for the story (not one paragraph per student). The first class will write the intro paragraph(s). Then the next class will read the paragraph(s) and decide how they want to continue the story. This will continue until the last class on the list writes the ending and gives the story a title. Your paragraph(s) will be typed onto this Wiki page. You will add the 3 pictures to the wiki after your class writes your paragraph(s). You can pass the writing on to the next teacher before you post your pictures. The pictures should illustrate events in the section that your class wrote.

Supermoon 2.PNG
You know how people say everyone and everything gets crazy weird when a full moon appears? Well, the other night, as the world waited, the dark sky gradually presented its massive, luminescent, lunar disk. It was finally here – the Super Moon! Seeing this phenomenon was not as odd as the events that eventually unfolded. These happenings were more than unusual and very, very peculiar.

Freshman hockey player, Austin Lee, from Cooperman Academy, lives in a quaint, little town right outside of Portland, Maine. His slim, six-foot tall body was used to taking a good hit from rival hockey players. He always worked out and trained. Every night at 8 PM, Austin went on his usual, five-mile, evening run through the snowy countryside and tonight was no different.

Under the gleam of the Super Moon, Austin left. After running at a steady pace for a few miles, he approaches the slick, steep, rocky incline. Austin hurries and stops on top of the hill which overlooks his city. He can't believe what he sees and he knew it was all happening from the Super Moon's energy.






Under the gleam of the Super Moon, Austin left. After running at a steady pace for a few miles, he approaches the slick, steep, rocky incline. Austin hurries and stops on top of the hill which overlooks his city. He can't believe what he sees and he knew it was all happening from the Super Moon's energy. Austin squinted as a strong wind hit the incline he’d known so well. Looking up, he realized the moon was coming unnaturally close to Earth. Suddenly, the outer core of the moon seemed to slide open, and a sinful screeching sound moved the boy to cover his ears. A platform descended from the white and ivory orb, revealing a group of tall, lean people, much like himself. Austin lowered his hands as the noise came to a halt. The group hopped off the metal platform and stepped onto the cold Earth, looking the teenage boy up and down. They were just like him, but better, somehow. He looked up at a man who appeared to be the leader of the group and scoffed, “Who in God’s name are you? And how did you—?!” He gestured towards the moon, waving his arms maniacally. The man looked at his comrades and laughed heartily, before pushing past the boy. Austin was inferior in their eyes, for some reason, and he didn’t like it. Looking back up at the moon, he realized an entire civilization had been functioning inside for years.

“It’s beautiful here on Earth, isn’t it?” a female said. Austin turned around and met the crystal clear eyes of another alpha-human. “Too bad you guys are just an experiment.” And with a light chuckle, she started to walk away.

Quick on his feet, the boy started to follow her. “An experiment? What do you mean ‘experiment’?!” The woman ignored him, strutting faster to try to catch up with her friends. “Hey, I know you can hear me!” He whined, but she continued to pretend as if he weren’t there. “For God’s sake, just explain what you m—“

“I think an introduction is in order, no?” The woman abruptly turned around, staring down at the boy. “I’m Lavinia, or Lavi, for short. And… you are?”

“Austin Lee.” He muttered breathlessly, holding out his hand to shake. Lavinia looked down at his hand in confusion, unsure of what to do, so she nudged it with her fist.

“People from Earth are weird.” She laughed lightly, shook her head, and while walking away, snapped her finger in the air. All that followed was a stark white light.

When Austin’s eyes finally adjusted from the blinding light, he realized he was standing at his front door. In a state of shock, he barged in, and hastily started to explain to his family what he saw, but they just laughed at him. He even persuaded his parents to take a family drive to the cliff to see it with their own eyes, but there was nothing to see. They quickly returned home, his parents continuing to ignore his plea to believe him, and they went to bed. His younger sister stayed with him, however, and he noticed something strange. Her eyes were staring blankly as if she were daydreaming. As he walked over to make sure she was okay, she turned toward him slowly and in an intimidating, demonic voice stated, “You weren’t supposed to see that.”



“Who are you?” Austin stuttered, slowly walking away from his sister in fear. Austin’s sister ignored his question and walked towards Austin like he was an enemy. Austin’s sister threatened Austin, “You will face the consequences for what you saw.” Austin backed away quickly in fear until he finally hit the wall of the living room. Austin’s sister gave Austin a death glare, and Austin tried calling out his sister’s name. No response from Austin’s sister as she walked closer and closer to Austin. Austin called out to his sister for the last time, and she finally stopped and said, “You weren’t supposed to see any of it.” Austin’s sister walked closer to Austin again with an angry look on her face.

Austin felt rage for whoever took control of his little sister. Austin’s mind was scattered and full of fear knowing that no one will ever believe him or help him. Suddenly Austin’s sister stopped right in front of Austin’s face. She gazed at Austin, and then she snapped out of it and said, “Promise me you won’t tell anyone about us.” Austin asked once again, “Who are you and what have you done to my little sister?” Austin’s sister pointed at the moon and said, “The aliens you saw back at the hill. You’re just an experiment like the rest of your kind.” Austin quickly crawled close to his sister and hugged her, knowing that it couldn’t be true about being an experiment from the aliens. Tears filled Austin’s eyes and flowed down from his cheeks as if both of his eyes and tears were a river. Then Austin felt his sister hugging him and said, “Why are you crying Austin”? Austin stopped hugging his little sister and looked at her, realizing that she is no longer being possessed from the aliens. Austin tried to explain to his sister and asked if she remembered what she said to him. She didn't remember anything at all about the aliens. Austin looked back at the window and saw the moon again, except it has writing on it that says: “You’ve been warned”.
