Black Composition Book - #1

A large explosion rocked Neil out of his deep sleep. A second and larger explosion  rocked Neil out of his bed. Within seconds he was pulling his clothes on and wondering what the hell was happening.

Neil was staying with his mother and stepfather in a rural town in north-western Pennsylvania. The community was very quiet and very closenit [sic].

As Neil was thinking of all the dreadful possibilities, shoots [sic] rang out in the backyard. A split second later, glass shattered and his mother screamed. Two shots rang out right before he heard a thud.

Before he could open his window to jump out and escape, Neil's door burst open. Three men, he assumed they were male, dressed in black entered with their guns all aimed at Neil, except for the fourth man he could barely see. This one was watching the backs of his companions.

The first man into the room looked at Neil and said, "Good, you're dressed. That's less work for us."

he then pulled an odd looking gun from a holster on his hip and shot Neil before he could think of a reply.

Luckily for Neil it wasn't a bullet that entered his body, it was a tranquilizer dart. When he realized this, Neil took two steps forward. He raised his fist in an attempt to hit the attacker that just shot him. Suddenly Neil lost control of his muscles as his entire body went rigid. Blackness started to enshroud Neil. The last thing he remember before losing conciousness [sic], is the first attacker pushing him over with his pinky, then laughing with the second attacker at their creul [sic] joke...

Nothing like yet another story with a bad plot, bad grammar, and bad spelling. What can I say, I was young. I'm not sure where I was going with this story but I vaguely recall them taking me to a space ship. Or at least that's where I was thinking of going with my story. Thankfully I didn't get that far along in the plot.
