The Curse of the Bike
-I don’t know how I came up with it but it was good!
(Comment if you have any thoughts on this story!)
I’ve always loved riding bikes, scooters, and skateboards. But my all time favourite are bikes. I have had about 4 bikes throughout my life, not much, but each of those bikes were special.
It was my 4th birthday. Warm evening sunset really set a chill mood that day. Everyone gathered around in the sitting room. With an angry bird cake on the coffee table. The one present I remember was this one as big as me! Once I blew out the candles. I instantly rushed to the present. Everyone laughed thinking of me as just being excited, but no, I felt like this bike was truly powerful!
I opened up the wrapping with a ruckus. Once it was fully exposed I felt this shock wave of some sort, it was quite a weird sensation. My head jolted back along with my whole body. I endeavoured to fight against the force. But nothing worked, it was as if I was paralysed. I could see myself moving at a slow pace backwards if I was doing a back flip in slow mo. I finally cocked my head back to view my gift. I could see myself. A duplicate. I also realised that I was floating. It was an odd thought that I was truly flying. A deep voice of an old man suddenly spooked me.
“The power of this bike is unpredictable. Take care of yourself along with this bike. This is my message to the chosen one.”
I looked behind me but no-one was talking. Mum, Dad, grandparents, they were all frozen in place. A descending warp lasted a second then….
I was back, standing there, staring at the bike.
I remember that day for the rest of my life! It was so weird. Now, I have my 4th bike. Ever since that weird event, odd scenarios seemed to happen to each of the bikes except for the bike I have now, until I found this anonymous button hidden at the bottom of my suspensions. I got curious so I pressed it…
Nothing happened. This sudden suspense was built. I couldn’t see or hear it, but I could feel it. I knew it was coming…
Suddenly a bassed boom blasted me away from my bike! A man in all black appears beside the bike, and in a deep robotic voice the man says “This space transporting vehicle will be taken in custody of the government of alien bravo122 world.” “Wait!” I shout. “Packaging 324 will be arriving shortly. Due to a call by Alien 389 64 hours and 52 seconds ago.” What was this dude talking about? Where did he come from? Why did he come? So many questions filled my head. “Alien courier service delivery33 completed.” And just in a blink of an eye he was gone as well as my bike. I need to get my bike back! I tell myself.
When a sudden voice says “Jin ”. I twitched. “Dad, stop scaring me like that!” “Sorry. Um there is a package that came in with a new scooter. Would you like to give it a try?” Wait for a package, my dad just said there was a package that came in, just as the alien told me. The alien also mentioned that it was also called in by aliens. Alien389 to be exact!
Is my dad getting these bikes for me on purpose?
Is my dad an alien?
Are these bikes sent by him?
And most importantly what was happening to me?
