Oops; a series of mistakes
It was a few days before Christmas, I was walking around, taking photography until I heard a sound, a gunshot. I shivered, my hands shaking. I began to slowly walk closer to where the sound came from. It was getting darker, the sun was setting and I could see the faint glow of the Christmas lights, twinkling from the houses behind me. I was leaving my little town and entering the deep meadows.
All of a sudden I heard someone shout, “Did you just shoot down, and possibly kill, Santa?” I jerked my head to towards the voice, I felt like laughing. One, Santa doesn’t even exist and Two why would he be roaming around here?
“Sorry…?” I heard a voice mumble.
“I told you not to bring the laser gun! A glitch can always happen when the chemicals from earth mix with the rays inside of the gun!”
“And how would I possibly know that?!”
There was a sigh,”If you had taken the Earth safety test!”
I was dumbfounded, were they from another planet? I tiptoed closer to the voices and I could see the shadows of a boy and a girl. The girl was holding a laser gun and next to them lying on the grassy meadows was a rather plump man that I assumed was ‘Santa‘.
I lifted my camera and took a picture, but instead of capturing the creatures, a bright white light flashed in my eye, I had the camera facing the wrong way. “Oops” I whispered to myself. All of a sudden everything starting twisting and turning, and then it went black.
I really hadn’t meant to shoot down Santa, I didn’t even pull the trigger, somehow it just shot him. Chase was glaring down at me.
“I’m sorry! I didn’t mean too!”
“Is that your new catchphrase?” He asked, frowning.
I raised an eyebrow, unsure what he meant.
“UGH!” He crossed his arms and rolled his eyes,”C’mon, we need to get outta here.”
“But, we can’t just leave him here!” I pleaded, “We HAVE to help him.
“And go to jail? No one will believe that it was supposedly accidental”
“Wait.” I swallowed back a few tears, “You don’t believe me?”
He looked away and let out a soft sigh,”I-I do but…”
“But what?!” I shouted.
“Nova. There’s something I need to tell you…”
A light flashed from ahead of them and they looked down the hill, spotting a camera. My antenna buzzed and soon I drained the light from the moon.
“Whats Happening?!” I asked, worried.
“Run! As fast as you can!”
I wake up to the sharp pines of grass, wait. Why is the grass so tall?
I slowly get up and brush off the dirt and mud. I look up at my camera. WAIT. WHY IS MY CAMERA A MILLION TIMES BIGGER THAN ME! The sun begins to rise, I must have been knocked out for a pretty long time.
I look inside the camera lenses, I can literally fit inside of them. “WOW! how did this happen?” Even though being small is cool, I still have a life! My parents must be worried sick about me. How will I get big again?! I find a needle on the ground and I pick it up, using it as a sword. I’ve been through these meadows many times, but I’ve never been so close up to it. It’s a whole new perspective!
I look around in awe at how big all the plants are.
Maybe shrinking wasn’t so bad after all.
I wake up in a wet and cold cell, hearing sounds from a television nearby.
“Have you seen the headline of today’s newspaper? Christmas is back!” The female news reporter spoke,” Mr. Claus was reported to be found somewhere in the middle of Casper Meadows, in the middle of a Meadow” She laughed and continued to speak, I blocked out her voice and turned over to Chase,”W-where are we?” I coughed softly.
“I-I turned us in like you said. Mr. Claus is in the hospital recovering.” He replied.
I smiled at him, being in jail wasn’t my ideal situation, but It felt good to know that he was safe. I pulled off the hood of my sweatshirt, which managed to cover my antennae, it glowed and pulled the luminance from the room.
“Oh No! It’s happening again!” I cried. “Why is this happening?!”
“Nova, I’ve been meaning to tell you this,” He paused,”You have special powers…”
“What do you mean?!”
“And I-I’m a robot! and you’re draining my power away…”
“What?!” then all of a sudden my antennae glow is even stronger and it sucks away the light from and Chase. The only person that cared about me.
“CHASE! NO!” He closes his eyes and lets out his last synthetic breath softly whispering,”Goodbye, my Novabelle…” and the sun lost its brightness, and the whole universe went black, and so did my heart…

A looooooong story to repay for all the entries I didn’t get to submit.
