Need a name Story

Chapter 1

David was sitting in class. Mrs. Treble was going over the test they just took. It was a habit of hers to go over all the questions and have a discussion on the answers. He was distracted. The window he sat next to showed a group of students in the football field. He was interested in one particular student. Her name was Amanda and she was the most beautiful girl in the whole school, maybe even the world for all he was concerned.

It was part of a class activity and it seemed a heck of a lot more interesting then his stupid test. He probably didn't even get a A but he didn't care. It's not like he was a honorule student or even in the top ten. He was a average student with mediocre grades that did not represent his intelligence. This put him at a disadvantage. She was way above his reach. Short of a miracle of God would she even recognize him.

Turning his gaze away from the window he stared at the pencil on his desk. The was nothing special about it. It was just a normal number two wooden pencil with a lead center. That was until his started to shake on his desk. It wasn't just the pencil. Soon his desk started to rattle. The pencil fell down to the floor, it's tip broke when it made contact with the hard tile.

Another student in front of him pointed to the sky. Almost instantly everyone ran to the windows with their phones out and pointed up. He wasn't one of them and almost got trampled over. Luckily he was just pushed to the front so he still had a good view. Looking up into the sky he noticed something that wasn't there before. The lack of clouds earlier made it even more obvious to the naked eye. A couple grey wedges were staying almost stationary high up in the sky. "Oh my god!" said one student, "What the hell is that?" Shouted another. Soon the room was full of noise of every student trying to yell over the other. He remained silent. That was until he saw the red lights fall from the ships. Some were just white smoky fingers falling down to the surface.

He knew what it was. He had seen too many science fiction movies to not know what it was. Maybe the other students would like to have stood in awe while they recorded it but not him. He needed to get to his house. He needed to prepare for what was about to come. He ran out of the room, leaving his back pack behind. Down the hall and then down the stairwell. He used the emergency exit next to the stairs that would lead to the field he was staring at.

Sprinting as fast as he could he made it to group of students and looked for Amanda. "Amanda... where are you at?" He yelled. At this point they were just friends and nothing more. He didn't think that she knew about his feelings. "Hey David, Have you seen this?" She pointed to the sky and to the wedges. "That's why I'm here." He said as he turned her to look at him. "We have to get out of here and find someplace safe."

They both looked up as one of those red lights fell closer and closer in their direction. It landed about two miles north of them. In the initial second following you could hear the blast of the impact and the destruction it made. The second following that the blast hit them like a minivan. They were blown back to the ground as the hot air engulfed them. He fell to the ground and felt his body hit it hard. After a little bounce he felt something harder before all went black.

Chapter 2

When his eye's opened up everything was blury at first. Then he felt his head start pounding. After a brief moment he felt the cooling touch of a rag on his forehead. It helped but not too much. Blinking a couple times the blurriness dissipated and he saw the face of his friend above him. "Are you okay David?" Amanda said.

Closing his eyes he begged for the headaches to leave, "My head hurts but other then that I'm okay. Whats happened since I was knocked out?" He asked fully knowing what was happening but not how far along it was. 

"Mr Prinkle doesn't know everything. He's locked down the school. The news stations are all black out but the radios are working. They are urging everyone to stay indoors while the government responds to what is happening." She said as she got up and handed the towel back to the nurse. "He says that if we stay here then we will be fine. Some of the parents have already come to pick up their kids. Mr. Prinkle says there is nothing he could do about it if the parents wanted them but until our parents come we have to stay here."

David sat up and rested his hands on his knees. His parent's weren't going to come. They were emergency workers in the city. His father a police officer and his mother was a nurse. There was no way that they would have shown up for him while those things were up in the air. "Amanda, we have to get out of here. It's not safe." He didn't really know that for sure but he had a gut feeling. Over time he learned to trust his gut instinct. 

"We cant leave David, Mr. Prinkle..." David interrupted her, "To hell with Mr. Prinkle. He doesn't know whats best for us. We would be better off if we made our way to our own homes. All Mr. Prinkle is worried about is possible law suits if one of us leaves on our own and gets hurt." He didn't really think that low of the schools principle but he knew that it wasn't necessarily not at the front of his mind but it was still there. 

"Lunch is ready. Lets go get something to eat shall we?" She walked towards the door and waved him on. It tore him up inside. When it came to her he was a puppy dog doing whatever she wanted him to do. Standing he grabbed his jacket on the chair and carried it in his hands as he followed her. 

As he walked to the cafeteria he could see the look on everyone's faces. The were covered with horror, fear, and worry. The students didn't really look much better. Everyone was trying to use their cell phones. Some whose phones died already were trying to use others if they could. It seemed like they gathered around every wall outlet as if it was a fire in the middle of a winter night. Thinking about it himself he pulled his cell phone out and looked at the display. Just as he thought, no signal. If he didn't have it then he knew no one else would. 

The food was just like lunch every other day of the week, mediocre at best. He ate anyways his teenage metabolism
