The First Tripod
It was just an ordinary and busy day in NY when I was walking down the street and saw a crowd of people. I ran over.
“What’s happened” I asked
“A meteor hit right above the subway but it didn’t leave hardly a dent in the tarmac “said the person on my left. I went over to touch a chipped bit of the meteor
“Strange, “I said
“Why is it boiling “Said the person behind me leaning over me.
“No. The exact opposite” I said backing away slowly as the small hole got larger.
“IT’S AN EARTHQUAKE!”shouted the crowd. A police officer from the NYPD started asking people to back away. But no-one listened as they were watching the hole in amazement. The people near the baker’s shop started jumping around as the hole slowly shattered the windows all around NYPD.
Suddenly the ground started rippling like you were doing a Mexican wave; half the city was running now as the other half were ridged with terror now. I was running to the bakers now to hide behind the counter but it was no use as the glass shattering hurt my ears so I had to get out of the bakers and try somewhere else anywhere away from this random and sudden earthquake.
I went outside to see the ground bulging up and down as it pulled in cars; I hid behind the last car next to people filming and screaming. All of a sudden the ground pushed up with a huge thump and spewed the cars out of the hole SMASH went the cars landing an inch to close to me. I started running towards the nearest building that hadn’t been completely obliterated but I was wrong as the building I was standing at(the church) did not like the earthquake and the church spire came tumbling down and nearly smashed a tourist bus. All was silent.
The whole City slowly started going towards the huge hole that threw out the car as we heard, saw and felt nothing CRACK went the sound in the hole it sounded like a car mixed with a church spire (probably exactly what it was) we all stood still as an appendage as big as at least 150ft pushed up of the ground as the other 2 came up with it. The fog covered up most of this strange creature but we could see something else coming back out of the hole it looked like a shell that was made for protection but this creature doesn’t look like it needs protection. I started backing away as a blue bright beam started lighting up as a foghorn like sound came out of this unearthly creature blasting out a powerful blue beam of power evaporating the city.
I ran for my life!
