The doorbell rang. I opened the door and to my surprise, I found myself looking at a skyscraper under my house. The door of my house was on the outer side of the skyscraper. I felt my stomach do a sickening somersault. The person who had rung my doorbell was a mail man. I was so surprised to see him flying outside the door that I fainted.
When I woke up I was in a totally different house. A young man came to me. He looked a lot like me. He said that his name was Alex and that he was my grandson! I was very puzzled by all this. The first question that came to my mind was, “Where am I?”
Alex told me that I was in the year 3012. He said that recently a group of scientists had succeeded in making a time machine and he and a few others had been assigned to test it.
One of them had accidentally directed a small asteroid towards the earth. This had enough power to wipe out our compound. To save me and all the others, we had been transported to the future. Alex gave me a tour of the future Earth. I saw everyone either walking or cycling except for a few. These people were flying using non polluting flying shoes.
Alex also said that there were machines that produced oxygen and this had helped humans survive. In the markets, I saw new gadgets that depended on new technology that I was unfamiliar with.
I stayed there for a few hours. Then Alex said that the asteroid had been stopped and that I could go home. Sadly all that I had seen would have to be erased from my memory and then…..then…..what happened? What am I doing in bed so late?
