I guess the blood-red sky was the Martian's way of warning us. In any event, we are now at war with a very unpredictable enemy, and it's scaring us all halfway to death.
I hear the incessant buzzing of spacecraft hovering directly overhead; the sound of it makes me want to look outside, but I'm afraid that if I do, I will more than likely get zapped, incinerated out of existance.
That would be a horrific way to die. I am not chancing it, so I am stuck down here with my family. It's like the Martians are holding all of us hostage.
I am sure that millions of people have already been killed. Their deaths have probably been predictably violent and/or quick. One minute, you're there, the next: ZAP! Gone. Poof! Just like that.
We are keeping tabs on the situation via our small portable television set. The Martian invasion is the topic of the day: it's the only thing all the channels talk about. There's nothing else on but the news, and it's all about the attacks. I am sick of it already!
How long we will have power is anybody's guess. It's a wonder the Martians haven't destroyed that. I also have my trusty little laptop computer, which is how I am typing to you. (If the power should happen to go out, I have battery backup, so no prob there!) I am scared to divulge too much in the way of information, in case aliens are spying on our every move.
I wouldn't put it past them. Heaven knows, they're already mad enough.
I have no idea what we could have done to piss 'em off. That's probably the scariest part of all in relation to the attacks.
Every night, I hear the slamming and thudding of rocks being hurtled at the earth. Maybe it's meteorites (or asteroids), or maybe, perhaps, their Martian weaponry. I don't know, but it's a wonder we even have a place left. I'm just glad that mom and dad are with me here in our shelter; if anything were to happen to them, I'd go crazy. Stir crazy!
I haven't been to school in the past month, ever since this war started. I miss my friends. No, I miss my LIFE! I wish these stupid Martians would just get it overwith and just leave!! I am tired of their temper tantrums already! Enough is enough!!!!
