It was midnight and Thomas was still wide awake. He stood on his bed, staring up at the beautiful night sky. He thought about the undiscovered wonders that lay beyond his eyes view.
He saw millions of stars; each one of them different from the rest. But there was one star in particular that stood out. It was a rather strange shape, much bigger and brighter than any of the others - it was his favourite star.
Thomas looked carefully at the star but suddenly he noticed that it was doubling in size every second; as if it was racing towards the earth! What was it?
Suddenly the 'star' plummeted down into a nearby field. Thomas ran out of his bedroom and abruptly crashed down the stairs, put on his shoes and took off towards the field. He was there - in the field - he couldn't see a star but he could see an alien space-ship!
He gasped in shock. Uncertain and unclear, he took a few steps backwards in case there were aliens in there. A piercing shriek filled the air. But Thomas hadn't made a sound!
A tiny creature (that Thomas had never seen before) emerged from the ship. It didn't notice Thomas until he stepped out of the shadows. The alien stopped and stared at this unknown species. Then finally, after a lot of thinking, it took a gun shaped object and aimed it at Thomas.
