“The alien are coming!” I hear them shout. I crawl out of my hiding spot to see what is happening.
“There,” I say to myself. I hear them before I see them, then, in the distance, I sight the aliens.
“Where are they going?” I think.
I start following them to see, but someone turns around and sees me. I start running and he starts shooting.
“There they are!” I shout. I crouch down but he’s still coming to me.
“Why me?” I shout to him. There’s no answer, so I keep running.
This is the end – it has come.
This is a well written story. I like how you used the word “sight”. The last line is also interesting. It gives the idea that you knew it would come down to this and now accept it.
