“Charge!” Shouted the master. I held my sword, started running and braced myself. The opponent was coming fast. Arrows were flying above my head. This was it. I remembered my family and my friends and realized I would never see them again. I knew there was no way of getting out of this, we were outnumbered 3 to 1, but I was sure my new pocket-watch would help.

 

I found the watch lying in front of the door of my house. It had a piece of parchment on it which said: Take it, it will help. From that moment, I always wore it around my neck.

 

The enemy was running towards us, I saw four men raise their swords and charge at me. I had no chance. I held up my shield but they just pushed me over. “Say goodbye” one of them said, with a husky voice. Three swords then came rushing down at my head, neck and chest. Everything went black. And then started flashing black and white.

 

I was flying forward, in a black and white tunnel. My chest was burning. I looked down and was startled at what I saw. The hands on my watch were rotating really quickly! I saw a bright light coming closer. The end. I flew out and was thrown into a wall.

 

“What? Where am I?” I moaned. I rubbed my shoulder and got up. I looked up and gasped. There were big metal boxes on wheels all around me! They were moving really fast!

 

A small gap opened in one of the boxes and it stopped in front of me. There were people inside! “What are you doing on the freeway? Get in, you maniac!” One of them yelled. I didn’t hesitate to get into the big gap that just opened. 

 

The box started moving again. I kykaq iva mkn, &lqqfy;Wvki vkppanaq iy iva wka?&aqqfy;
