Terrabithia: Boarding

I am always late. Thank god I set my Zinger to wake me two hours earlier. Running up the dock, I think of all the history this planet has. All the technology that has been updaed and outdated. All the animals gone extict from lack of attention. All the wars over pointless stuff.

I am the last one to board. I hear the soft swish as the door lowers behind me. The click of the air seal is muted, and the earth air I will ever breathe. It is gone all to soon, and I begin my life again. I am the only one in my family going. We only had enough money for one.

I walk down the corridor, and see that all the rooms are taken. There is only one left. I hope my neighbor is not grumpy in the mornings....

The End
