'Come on sweetie, pedal harder.'

'I'm trying Daddy I really am.'

'I know you can do this all by yourself, like a big girl.'

'Yes, that's it! Look at you riding your bike all by yourself!'

'Daddy look how fast I'm going!'


My dream was interrupted by a loud crash that seemed to be coming from inside the spaceship. That was a good day. I remember it perfectly well, I remember every small detail from the rush of adrenaline pounding through my veins to how proud Dad was. That was back when we where a proper family...well, I guess we still are its just my parents never have time for me anymore, not with there new jobs. Oh no, they're far too busy for me and I understand they have to earn the money somehow but I wish just for once they could put me first. Well thanks to there fancy jobs we have been sent off miles away from our home to a small, crummy planet. My parents tell me over and over again 'it's an adventure, a new start for all of us'. My old life was an adventure. I miss everything and everyone terribly. No backing out, here we are exactly two minutes untill landing.

My legs shook uncontrollably, my brain was calm but my body was not. I have to admit, I have never been so anxious in my life before. I do not have the slightest clue what this planet will look like; it could be my dream planet but I do not have high expectations anymore...

There was a lot of shaking all of a sudden, I grabbed hold of my seat tightly, digging my nails deeply into my own skin, my fringe clamped to my forehead. I'm not ready for this, I don't want to go through this, I felt the sudden urge to scream at the top of my lungs 'I want to go home'. I could throw the biggest tantrum like a three year old and I wouldn't get my own way, I could do everything in my will and yet I will still be in this same position.

Well, we're here. We landed only five minutes ago and I've refused to leave the ship, after all there could be a dangerous, hideous creature waiting outside slowly pacing up and down waiting for his prey...Wait, I'm being ridiculous it can't be that bad. Well, here's to a new start. Goodbye my old life and memories, lets make a new start.

The slightly disgruntled air ship landed smooth on a large plain of withered grass. I looked skeptically out of the dusty window. "Well", I sighed "I guess this is my new home". I want a new start, I thought to myself rather enthusiastically compared to my thoughts which were now hidden under a burden of made up confidence. This is it, goodbye my old life and those many years of treasured memories, I want to start over again, nothing can go wrong ( hopefully), not many people get the chance to move to a whole new world and become an entire new person, goodbye my friends of the past you will stay close to my heart as I encounter my new adventures in life.

The End
