300 years ago, an alien dropped a potion on Earth’s floor. What would happen?
The entire city was covered in of warm sunlight. Puffs of white filled the sky. Birds chirped cheerfully and bees buzzed in the flowers. The smell of fresh air lingered and the breeze tickled the leaves.
It was only 6:12 AM in the morning when a strange object on the side of the road glinted in the sunlight… I ran outside and jumped with joy along the sidewalk.
I spotted a purple potion in a glass bottle on the side of the road.
I quickly picked it up and inspected it. Then, without even thinking, I drank every drop. Suddenly, I felt like there were ducks jumping in my stomach! I felt incredibly strange.
I rushed home. When I arrived, I looked at myself in the mirror and found that my black hair had become a rainbow coloured mohawk! In, I also saw a chestnut mouse run across the table.“Ah!” I screamed, and my face started to shrink.
How terrifying it would be if my mum found me like this. Suddenly, I transformed into a woman! Why was my mother looking back at me in the mirror? I started thinking of myself and returned to normal. Could the potion be turning me into whatever I was thinking about?
The next day, I thought hard and turned into a mouse. I returned to the side of the road and found a letter at the same place I found the potion. It said in bold words: “You have powers now. Use them wisely and you will become a hero!”
The letter inspired me to make a superhero suit. I turned back into myself and made a green striped suit with a bold letter ‘B’ with horns marked in the middle. I was now Beast Man!
I was walking through the city when suddenly a creature the size of a very big room busted out from the ground and roared, “I am Doctor Arachno! I have come to destroy your city!” He had eight metallic arms that doubled as weapons.
An evil army rushed out from behind him and his tiny robotic slaves started to destroy the town.
Doctor Arachno swung his iron claw at me. Quickly, I dodged his attack by transforming into an ant and escaped.
I had to overcome my fear and face the villain head on. I was a bundle of nerves, but I had to do it! Since I could shape shift, I thought of turning into a fierce fire breathing dragon!
I used my sharp claws to grab him and threw him into the sea. Dr. Arachno grew smaller and smaller until he was the size of a grain of sand and disappeared into the dark ocean.
I remembered the time my mum told me about how spiders are more scared of you than you are of them. I exclaimed, “You’re no scarier than those dangly long legs in my bathroom sink!”
After I defeated Dr. Arachno, the crowd cheered. The town returned to normal.
I realised then that fear is just an illusion.
