Mark Story Essay

1076 words - 4 pages

Mark Story1I am Mark Adams. I am a reporter. Not a kind of reporter I would like to be though. I don't report news. I report survivors. I survey the whole world trying to find people who survived the destruction that turned the whole world upside down. I survived with my son. That's how I was found, reported by a reporter. Headquarters, the place I call home predicted the outcome. No one believed them including me. The day it happened, I was watching TV. The news was showing how Moscow fell. NY fell pretty fast. But I ran with my son. We Ran until there was death in front and back. But an aircraft saw me. It took me and my son in. None of my known ones survived. But I selfishly did. My son, tom is very strong. He knows what happened. He didn't even break down once. He is only 8 years old. I have some experience as a pilot. So now I am a reporter. I was informed that there were survivors in Kansas. So I am headed there. But it's quite risky. I have to refuel. Or at least land. But landing shouldn't be a problem. Jerry is mission control. He is going to walk me through the procedures."Mission control this is Alpha 2169 How far is it?""Alpha 2169 are you joking? You are flying over it.""No I am not jerry, nothing but water. You've got to give me something. Alpha 2169 needs immediate refuel or landing. I am running out of fuel.""I am still confused, something is wrong.""I can only go on for an hour after that I'm done for. Where is the next reading of a landing area?""It's……..""Jerry talk to me""It's nowhere near your location.""So I am in for my demise.""No I will send any near aircrafts your way.""Whatever you do, don't give me false hope. You and I both know that's impossible. Aircrafts are in a rescue mission in Asia. It's not even there yet.""It'll change course.""And just leave the Asians behind. Dying is better than being the reason of thousands dead.""But….""Listen, I want you to give tom a false hope, like I have a boat in the plane, And when you will know its time. Stop his search.""Don't go melodramatic on me now. You'll survive!""Goodbye friend. Keep my son safe…. WAIT!!""What?""It's…. Oh jerry, talk to you later.""What?!! Mark….. MARK!!!!! RESPOND!!!!!! MARK!!!!!!!!"I saw something. It was big, very big. I was almost enchanted by it. It was flying. I tried to call it. But it didn't respond. What is it? I went seriously close. A doorway opened. There was just nothing but light inside. Was it heaven? I didn't think twice before entering. Was it a mistake? Maybe. But it's one of the most important events that occurred in my story. And I wouldn't have survived without it.2I am Tom Adams. I am a student; I learn the ways to survive. I live with my dad in the headquarters. Well…… lived with him apparently. He has gone on a death mission. To save people from the unforgiving tsunami, he went to...
