Ten Seconds Left
Writerzz 12 Ohio, United States
T minus ten.

My heart is beating in my chest, so hard that I swear the world can hear it.



T minus nine.

I know I'm on national television. Is this my only time of fame?



T minus eight.

I strap my self into the chair, and prepare for the "lucky" number.



T minus seven.

I know that now the final mistakes occur. It's too late to chicken out.



T minus six.

I have to do this. For my friends and family.



T minus five.

Halfway through. No turning back now.



T minus four.

I'm shaking in my seat. I'm starting to feel nervous.



T minus three.

The final seconds. These last moments on Earth.



T minus two.

It's almost time.



T minus one.

One more second. One second left.



Liftoff.

It's time.

The Earth- A Poem
Sonne824 11 Pennsylvania, United States
What is the earth?
Spinning, rotating, revolving,

What is the earth?
Blue,green, brown,

What is the earth?
Glory, happiness, joy,

What is the earth?
Cruel, harsh, terrifying.

It depends on how you look at it,
how you hold
It depends on how you see it,
Dull or Bold.

Well, I'd say from how it is today,
I think it's perfect, don't change it in any way

How Money Came to Be- Nonfiction
Sonne824 11 Pennsylvania, United States
We use money practically every day, but have you ever wondered how money came to be?
Well, a piece of metal found in Lydia, Turkey around 670 B.C. was considered to be the first money, but the whole idea of using it as money came later in time. Instead of using paper money, like the kind we use today, people all over the world would trade stuff. They would trade stuff like ten chickens for a cow, or a basket of berries for several ears of coins.
But what if a family needed chickens but didn’t have a cow? Then what? People thought about this and finally decided it would be more practical to have something with you that wherever you were, no matter what, it was always going to be the same amount.
So, that was how the kind of money we use today, came to be.

My New Clothing Item
Mond00 12 Pennsylvania, United States
If I could invent a new clothing item, I would make it a pair of sunglasses for your ears. They would keep your ears from getting burned if you went out into the sun and they would block out noise.
They would look just like sunglasses except that they are two separate pieces instead one attached piece. They would come in all sorts of shapes, colors, and sizes. They would only be $1.50, just over the price of a cheap pair of reading glasses.
They would be made of a reliable brand of plastic. That’s what my new clothing item would be.

How the Earth Turns-Prolougue
Mond00 12 Pennsylvania, United States
She stared wide-eyed back at her husband. “I would never let you do that to her, Henry.”
A storm raged outside, blocking out all noise. The only exception it had decided to make was for the two people standing in the middle of their living room, staring intently at one another. She stood silently as she waited for the second that she could catch him off guard.
When that second came, she sped down the hall.
At the end of the hall, she immediately veered right, into the room where a small baby was laying in a crib.
She grabbed for the baby, accidentally waking it.
Her husband had been rushing down the hall, and was now waiting outside of the baby’s room.
“Lizzy, calm down. Can’t we discuss this?” Henry asked.
“Henry we can talk about this, but not here. I don’t want Kamantha there when we talk, whether she understands or not.”
“Fine, take her somewhere. But, please, don’t run away. I need to talk to you.”
Hearing the desperation in his voice, she took pity on him.
“Okay, I’ll be back in about fifteen to twenty minutes,” Lizzy said, making her way towards the door.
In the driveway, Lizzy slid into the driver’s seat of her Chevy Cobalt and stuck the key in the ignition. She set the baby she had been carrying in a car seat, strapped her in, turned back to the wheel, and flicked the key to acceleration.
The car grumbled for a few seconds, then sputtered to life.
Lizzy grabbed the gear shift and pulled it to the R. The car slid backwards down the driveway and curved onto the road.

Fifteen minutes and four and a half miles later, Lizzy pulled up to her mother’s white, Victorian-style house
After hearing a knock, a woman in her forties wearing a light blue blouse, grey, loose fitting pants, and grey slippers to match, pulled open her front door to find her daughter standing there holding her baby.
“Hi, Mom. How have you been?” Lizzy asked.
“Fine, darling. I see you brought Kamantha with you,” she said, looking down at the baby.
“Um…yeah, that’s actually what I came here to ask you. Could you possibly watch her for a while?” Lizzy asked.
“Why darling, of course I can! I haven’t seen Kamantha in so long; I need to spend some time with her!”
Lizzy, thanking her mother, extended her arms and handed the baby off to her grandma.
Thanking her mother again, Lizzy pulled shut the front door and jogged back to her Cobalt.

Twenty minutes later, Lizzy pulled up to her house. Inside, she saw her husband nervously pacing in the living room.
When she walked through the door, she saw relief spread over his face.
“So now what, Henry?” she asked, “What is there to discuss? Why would you want to take are daughter, who still has her whole life ahead of her, with you? What could she do?”
“Lizzy, if I start training her now, she could be one of the best agents this organization has! And don’t forget that the fact that we may not recruit anybody else is still out there!”
“Henry,” Lizzy said, a disgusted look on her face, “I don’t want that life for my daughter.”
And with that, Lizzy jumped up from her seat on the couch and flew out the door.

Driving faster than she ever had, Lizzy rounded the last corner it took to get to her mother’s house.
She sprang out of the car and pushed the doorbell.
Again, her mother came to the door, holding the baby this time.
“Thank you so much for watching Kamantha, mom.”
“Oh, it was no problem at all,” the woman said.
When Kamantha was safely in her arms and the door had been shut, Lizzy sprinted back toward her car.

About a mile and a half down the road, Lizzy saw Henry’s black sports car coming up behind her.
She pushed the gas pedal down even further until her and her car were out of
Henry ‘s sight.
Up ahead, there was a densely grown forest. The only break in the trees was
About big enough to fit a truck and still keep it hidden.
“Perfect,” thought Lizzy.
She swerved her car into the space and waited to see the sight of her husband’s
car drive by.
When she did, she drove her car back onto the road and just kept driving.
“Kamantha, you better behave after I did this for you,” Lizzy said, shaking her
head and smiling devilishly.
