Everyone agreed that whatever had crashed into Atlantic had been huge.

‘So, it wasn’t a car then?’ asked Ravi, stuffing a Jaffa cake into his mouth.

‘Nope,’ said Blake excitedly, ‘Look!’

Ravi rolled his eyes, and peered at the headline. ‘Minister admits Cornish mystery crash could be ‘Alien in origin.’

Ravi had to admit that it was exciting. Up until now, nothing ever happened in Fowey in October. All week, the harbour had buzzed with police, TV people, sightseers and some serious looking grey haired people who, according to Blake who knew everything, were the ‘Specialist Government Recovery Team.’ The other good thing about the mystery crash practically happening on Blake’s doorstep (the family lived about two hundred metres from the alleged crash site), was that they were on half term. Fourteen minutes after it had appeared on the TV news, Blake and Ravi had had made a flask of hot chocolate, pinched some pork pie (the type that has the hardboiled egg through the middle) and some jaffa cakes from the pantry, and went to sit on the beach with everyone else.

 The boys were allowed to stay and watch at night too, which was particularly exciting. The spot lights made the Atlantic glow with a sickly green light, making it easy to believe in aliens and what they were doing in the sea (if they had survived the crash of course.)

At a quarter past five in the morning, while Ravi was dozing, the police, now dressed in riot gear moved everyone off the beach. Something had happened. They were no longer allowed to watch....

It’s it’s it’s a….. A-a-a-a space ship, a hairy, stinky (as old never been washed socks), as wide as a school field, as tall as a five story building and it was making this hissing sound. Everyone was standing around in disbelief. Twenty minutes later a big green alien walked out. It had three legs, five hundred eyes and four arms, and tall too, about seven to eight feet! It unexpectedly walked up to us….

It just stared, its eyes bulging fixed on 1 point. It was looking at Ravi. It took one step and pointed at him; it wanted something. It towered over him- an eight foot giant! He looked down to where it pointed, notising his grandad's amulet, which he always wore with pride.

 "D-d-d-don't g-give it to him," Blake stuttered.

 You see the amulet was Ravi's granddad’s "magic" amulet. It used to glow at night and give Ravi nightmares until his granddad died and then it was his most prized possession. His granddad apparently stole it from Roswell during his travels but now the alien wanted it.

 "What, another hoax?" demanded Nathan, a kid around the block.

 He took a Jaffa cake from Ravi's bag and scoffed it. Then 'it' happened...

And then it happened…

The amulet glowed brightly. it was blinding.  A gush of wind nearly sweeping them off their
feet.  A green, slimy figure stood before
them, they felt the world had suddenly turned against them. Almost everyone
knew.It was Ravis granddad.  His face
weak and pale, his lips seemed to be trembling and his eyes shining. He saw it,
after years of grief he saw it.

Ravis screamed. He did not know what to feel.


“Give me my AMULET!” roared the creature.


“NOOOO!” replied Ravi.


In an instant a huge metal creature rose from the pit.


“You REFUSE us; WE refuse your right to live! HA-HA-HA-HA…” an ominous laugh shook the ground.


The grey haired men drew pistols from there belts, but they were no match for the creature. Whose eyes emitted green rays, transforming each man to a purple flame. Ravis ran but a coiling arm knocked him down and dragged the unconscious boy into the towering beacon.


Blake screamed, “RAVISSSSSSSSSSSS…!”

Ravi woke up to see a dark metallic ceiling. He sat up and looked around. He saw that he was alone and tried to get up but he couldn’t find the strength in his legs.  Where was he? 

He heard a familiar voice calling his name

“Ravi!?” it was Blake. He tried to call back to him but as he tried to speak he felt a painful hit to the back of the head. His next conscious sight was the slimy green monster standing over him.

He tried to scream but couldn’t find his voice, where was he?  Finally he found his voice, and asked “where am I?!”  The green monster glared at him, then at his amulet.  The monster reached out to grab it, but Ravi kicked and blocked him, he then found enough strength to get up and run!

Ravi tried to open every door he could find, but all the doors were locked. it was no use. He was trapped in the aliens spaceship even though he didn't realize it. He finally found an open door. It was the back door. He tried to walk out, but an invisible force kept him inside the spaceship. "HELP! Somebody, please help me!" cried Ravi. All of a sudden he heard footsteps. "Give me the amulet, and I'll set you free." Ravi's grandad jumped out behind him, pushed him out of the way, grabbed the amulet, and it broke. The alien vanished, and they were set free. Ravi's grandad thanked him for being brave and vanishsed into heaven.
