The Alien from Mars

Member Story

"I don't feel like going to school," said a 12-year-old kid named Hamza.
"Doesn't matter," said Hamza's mom.
"I don't feel well," said Hamza.
"Let me check your temperature," said Mom.
"You're right.  You are sick," said Hamza's mom.
"So I can skip school," said Hamza, trying to hide his happiness.
"I guess so, only until you're better," said Hamza's mom, leaving the room and heading for the car to go get medicine.
"What do I do in bed all day?' said Hamza to himself.
"Play with me!" said a voice.
"Who said that?" asked Hamza, thinking he was imagining things.
"Me, of course," said the voice again.
"Show yourself," said Hamza, very frightened.
Suddenly, a small green creature came from behind Hamza's pillow. It looked just like a human but it was green.
"My name is Sithel," said Sithel.
"Well, nice to meet you, but, no offense, but where did you come from?!" asked Hamza who was really freaked out.
"Mars, of course," said Sithel.
"So what are you doing here?" asked Hamza.
"I came here from Mars and landed here so I have to allow you a wish and it will be answered, but only one," said Sithel.
Hamza thought and thought. He then decided to be as smart as Einstein. The alien said okay and suddenly Hamza realized he could answer a lot of questions. He always got A+ after that and always went to the gifted program in school.
