Saxon Andrew - 2013
Jesse Rollins’ family disappeared in the desert during a family camping trip. Jesse was ten years old when the event took place and they were never seen again. Jesse turned sixteen and ran away from the orphanage the state put him in after the disappearance and returned to the place they disappeared. He decided that if it happened once; it could happen again. He had no idea he would cause the world to be thrown into a world war with the Military Leaders in the United States, China, and Russia planning to overthrow the governments of the planet's three most powerful nations. He also had no idea he was right. Excerpt from; Jesse’s Starship Suddenly a bright spotlight lit up the night and the two aliens were frozen for an instant. They heard a voice said over a loud speaker, “You will stay where you are and raise your arms above your head.” The Apache swooped down the rise toward the two Neman with its machine guns targeted on them. One of them raised his arm and pointed it at the fast approaching helicopter. The Apache exploded and pieces rained down into the depression. The other Neman fired a beam at Gresam’s dead body as the first pressed his wrist unit extending the force field around their ship to cover them. They sprinted toward the open port as two Raptors came roaring in. The pilots were circling and saw the Apache’s destruction; the lead pilot contacted his commander, “The Apache has been hit and destroyed. We’re arming missiles and going in.” Two of the four Raptors roared in and locked their sights on the place in the depression where the two beings had disappeared. They toggled two hellfire missiles and fired them as they topped the rise. One of the Neman yelled, “Remove the hostiles!” Two bright white beams shot out of the ship’s hull and hit the two Raptors exploding them in midair as they passed overhead. The second pair of Raptors roared in a moment behind the first two and launched their missiles just before they were hit by white beams and destroyed. The wreckage of the four Raptors was scattered for a mile as the debris rained down on the desert at high speed. The wreckage that hit the force field surrounding the spaceship was vaporized.
