Imagine A World
Imagine a world where the unexpected happens. Normal turns into paranormal. An average day, ends with an extraordinary night.
Jeff is working on a farm. A large, red barn, open fields, hundreds of cows and sheep in paddocks and a brown murky dam surrounding his house. An average farming property. A small, log cabin, a short stroll up the hill, for Jeff to escape to if needed. An average man living his best average life. Every day brought the same events and happenings for Jeff. Up early at the crack of dawn, quick breakfast, get dressed and prepare to feed the animals across the morning. The same average lunch of sandwiches follows the morning chores and tinkering, checking fences and filling the animals water takes up most of the afternoon. A home cooked meal, followed by a coffee in front of the fireplace, leads Jeff to bed, only to be awoken by…
A mysterious bang! Behind the barn, the noise fades. Jeff jumps out of bed, grabs his baseball bat and goes to check the barn. As he cautiously makes his way towards the barn he sneakily peers behind the side door. The noise - coming closer and closer, louder and louder. “WOAH!” a black cat jumps out in front of him and runs away towards the field. Jeff became curious. How did a black cat get in there? Why was it there? He checked the area from where the black cat had been. There was nothing, but weeds.
Without warning, he shouted as a bright, fluorescent light appeared above him. He was frozen like a statue. He gazed up very slowly, hoping it wasn't what he thought it was. As his brain caught up with his eyes…shock, surprise and fear set in. “UFO!” he screamed in his mind. But no words exited his mouth. Beyond scared, he shouted for help, but sadly no one could hear him. Jeff dropped to the ground, breathing a sigh of defeat as he lost all hope and his only option was to run!
He ran as fast as he could. With all might, hope and faith, he ran like he was stuck in a nightmare he couldn't escape. Black. Open one eye. Strange. Unfamiliar. Carefully open the other eye. Where am I? How did I get here? Bright lights are around Jeff. A green, weird creature stands over him staring, its large black eyes glaring. Who is that? What is that?
The creature reaches out, the strange finger-like claw touches Jeff’s head…black again.
Jeff awoke suddenly, to the sound of speeding cars racing past him on what appeared to be a freeway. How did I get here? Slowly, yet excitedly he got up and started to view his surroundings. He looked around for the closest person or place he could find to figure out where he actually was. A car appears on the horizon and a glimmer of hope sparks Jeff’s energy. The shiny, silver Tesla zooms past Jeff without a second glance and to his shock it was being driven by a green creature similar to the one that he had woken up to in the UFO. The next thing he knew he was flying down the highway in this Tesla. The creature had telepathically transported Jeff into the car. “Where are we going?” Jeff questioned. Confused, the creature responded to Jeff in a language he didn’t understand. A phone appeared in his hand, labelled translator and the device stated robotically “You are safe. I am taking you to a new home. You will not be harmed. Welcome to Earth K2b.”
Jeff now lives an awesome and spectacular life in Earth K2b. His home is now futuristic, modern and full of devices and technology. Neon lights, floating machines and levitating vehicles are now part of Jeff’s everyday life. There is no more average. There is no more repeat, repeat and repeat of the life he once had on the farm. Jeff is happy where he has landed and living his best paranormal life.
Things that are unexpected, do not always end badly.
