Armageddon - creative writing.

Extracts from this document...


Armageddon Armageddon. Ajay Played by Ben Affleck. "An asteroid the size of the state of Texas is headed for us; in eighteen days it will annihilate the whole earth." At that moment I felt my hair stand on end, like a soldier stands to attention. Only two minutes ago I thought the worst thing that could happen was Harry finding out about my relationship with his daughter. That seems more of a laughable matter now, compared to the death of over six billion people, and millions of species of animals and plants. Two hundred and twenty five million years of evolution obliterated in one go. I felt a wave of anger build up inside me. How could the government not see this coming? Eighteen days is not enough warning. Who is responsible? My mind was teeming with questions. It was the first time I had ever seen Harry with such an astonished look on his face. He usually always seemed very confident, and had a positive attitude. Then it hit me. Grace, my family, all of my friends on the rig, we would all die. Our hopes and dreams, all shattered and pointless. ...read more.


They would for me. I was anxious, and not very confident. I was addicted to Grace. I craved for Grace like a smoker craves for the nicotine in their morning cigarette. I was sure she was missing me too. I wondered what she was doing at that very moment, how she was feeling. I wished I could be with her to brighten up her night, and ease her worries. During the training for the mission, I became aware of several members of the team, who were taking it as a joke. Am I the only one who is utterly terrified, I thought. I was apprehensive about the entire mission. I feared we might not even make it out of the earth's atmosphere; I knew space shuttles had quite literally blown up on take off, not even getting to start their mission. The astronauts not able to see space after being so close, like if someone were to dangle the key that opens the door to all of your dreams, and then throw it away just as they were about to turn the lock. Then there's the journey to the asteroid. ...read more.


She ran to me. We hugged; I didn't want to let go. I couldn't bear to tell her about Harry. My stomach was knotted, and I had a powerful ache. How do I tell her, I thought. I looked into her eyes. She knew. I was heartbroken, because she was. I wanted to mend her broken heart, piece by piece. I would put it together with my love and devotion. I would always protect her, as she was my life. If she was miserable, my life would be worthless, like a priceless vase that falls and shatters. Nothing but love can help Grace and I more. We have to work together to come to terms with Harry's death. I am so grateful that he has allowed me to live on. I can live the rest of my life and make the most of it. The bubble which held my dreams is reborn, but this time, my dreams are stronger than ever. I am so lucky, that I had the pleasure of working alongside the bravest man in history; my hero. Because of him, I can plan my life. One day I hope to marry Grace, and have a family with her. Then I can tell my children how granddad Harry, saved their father's life. That if it was not for him, they would not exist. ...read more.
