Rafiki the Alien
By J. Wellings
On the space ship, Alboron, the three inch tall Rafiki was planning his destruction of Mars. He went to go get an apple and go to the bathroom, but on the way he got sidetracked by a cheerios commercial. He had not eaten cheerios since he left his home planet of Toastitolo. The round miniature doughnuts were his favorite. Just thinking of the food had the little alien drooling. He snapped out of the tasty food trance. The ship was beeping like crazy! He ran to the control room, frantically he pressed random buttons, “Course changed, Earth is the new destination,” said a robotic voice. Rafiki shrieked, “AHHHHHHH! NO NO!” The space ship went into hyper-speed and raced off to the strange planet of Earth. Rafiki screamed his head off all the way there. He blacked out as the ship crashed and shook through the atmosphere.
When he regained consciousness his ship had stopped moving. He had crashed, right in the middle of a fancy wedding reception! He looked around, there was no one in sight. He saw the food table and walked over to it. He looked so excited when he saw his favorite food. Cheerios! He grabbed the biggest bowl he could find and poured the whole box in. he grabbed the milk and speedily poured all of it in. He was way smaller than the box but he was as strong as an ox. He heard a scuffling sound behind him so he whirled around to see a little boy about the age of 7. He said that his name was Dodalgo. Rafiki yelled as loud as I could, “MOMMY!” Dodalgo started laughing as hard as he could. He said “I know where your spacey ship is.”
Rafiki stopped yelling and said, “You do.”
“I can take you to it,” exclaimed Dodalgo.
So Dodalgo picked Rafiki up and rushed out of the room. Rafiki had never gone so fast before, it was exhilarating! He had no clue that it could ever get so cold. He was shivering so hard that Dodalgo had stopped and asked if he needed a glove to sit in. He said no because they were almost there. They got to a giant mountain and the space ship was at the base. He ran over to it and unburied the green flying machine. He was so sad when it wouldn’t start up. So Dodalgo ran over to it and pulled out his handy-dandy duct tape and taped some wires. The ship roared to life and Rafiki soared of in the distance. Dodalgo waved to Rafiki as he zoomed away.
