Imagine A World Exactly Like a Library
Imagine a dull world like a library, with towering books fading away from the fog that holds secrets… It's so quiet that sometimes I think I'm the only one here. Or maybe I am the only one, because I've never found a real person. Standing in front of me…
Have you ever thought about what this world would look like with people? I was reading a book sitting on my bed when I spotted something in the corner of my eye… Speeding outside trying to find the thing or person that I saw… After an hour of searching I eventually found a person for the first time in years… Quickly I ran up to them and introduced myself. I kind of startled them as well.
To my surprise I found myself a friend after a long, LONG time. I was curious to ask where they came from. They told me they’re from ‘Book Planet’, same as me looking for people, just like me…? We went back to my house and into my room, we got to know each other a little bit more. While we were just talking, the windows and my bookshelves started shaking and EVERYTHING was shaking… Before my eyes THE WHOLE TOWN WAS BREAKING DOWN! Then all of a sudden I heard yelling, more people?..
Where did they come from? Were they hiding in their houses all this time? I'm so confused right now. How are they not dead? Are they human? Do they not eat and drink water?! I had so many questions. Faster than lightning I bolt out of my house with my friend to ask questions… I asked them where they came from, they told me they were stuck in this crazy world and a portal pushed them through to here? After our conversation they turned around and saw the earthquake... Oh no I thought to myself… Suddenly they all started screaming. This world used to be quieter than a library and now it's full of yelling, screaming and screeching. Finally I had had enough “STOP!” I yelled and everyone went dead silent...
“We can't just scream and shout and panic, we have to do something about this!” I demanded. We made a very complicated plan all together but we made it work and we are going to rebuild this town! After months and months of hard work we finally finished our town! I even used some paint to add colour to some of those dull buildings. We celebrated so much we almost caused another earthquake!
Do you like quiet worlds or crazy fun ones?
