84. Pretending

Press "Space" to Play/Pause
I like to pretend. I like to make up things that aren't real.
I use my imagination.
I was pretending that I was in a time machine.
I set the date for a prehistoric time.
I turned on the time machine, and it buzzed and whirred and spun madly.
When it stopped spinning, I opened the door and stepped out into a very thick jungle.
I listened carefully to the sounds of the jungle.
I could hear strange animal noises, and the leaves were rustling.
I wasn't sure if I'd gone back in time or had just landed in a jungle somewhere in the twenty-first century.
It didn't take me long to realize that I had indeed gone back in time.
A very strange bird-like creature with a large beak flew overhead.
I'd never seen anything like it in my life.
I took a few steps out into the long grass and ferns.
I didn't wanna go too far away from my time machine.
I heard a noise over on my right side.
There was a man who looked quite different from me.
He was dressed in an animal skin, and he carried a big stick.
I didn't want him to see me, so I hid behind a tree.
He didn't speak any language that I could understand.
He grunted at someone who must have been in the distance.
Then, I felt the earth shake beneath my feet.
I heard giant thumps on the ground as the floor of the jungle shook.
The man in the animal skin began to run.
I saw why he was running.
A giant dinosaur appeared above the tops of the trees.
It was bigger than anything I'd had ever seen.
My heart began to pound in my chest. It was coming toward me.
I ran toward my time machine and jumped in.
I set the dial for the twenty-first century.
The machine whirred and buzzed. My time machine landed in the twenty-first century.
I got away just in time.
