I yelled whos there? and a really frightening sound came off from the door that said "just open the door. My mom was shouting, "son run your butt off that guy is coming to kill you" with a scary voice. then i simply jumped from the window. next thing that i found out was i was falling from a building and i kept falling and falling and falling and i remembered about the heroes movies that i have been watching lately and turned out to be a superman and soon started flying. i landed on a street and kept walking.. later i found out that some one was following me i couldn't see his face because of his mask so i turned back and stopped he was a huge guy "damn him" i told to myself and tried to fly away but couldn't anymore because that big guy was holding my leg and felt like he was really strong..boom!! i punched him..but it was no good he was so strong that my punch had no reaction on him he rolled me and made me a chunk of muscle and threw like a ball, i hit a coffee shop wow!! the owner offered me a cup of coffee i happily drank actually it wasn't coffee but instead was some sort of energy drink ..i could feel it i could feel the energy running through my veins..i went straight forward to that man and punched him so hard that he flew and landed in the pacific ocean..then i started hearing a loud sound and water was everywhere..dang it was my mom i finally waked up and realized was my dorm.. me: good morning mom whats up? mom: get outta your bed its already 10 am...
