“Good morning class!” “Good morning Mrs. Strawberry!” Another boring day at Fena Rockwell High School. Man if I were the owner, this place would be something. Oh, I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Jaidon Moons. I’m a honored junior student at this school and we learn something new each day. I wonder what I’m going to learn today.
“Alright, we will be learning about the dropping of an atomic bomb on Japan in 1985. To shorten the war between Japan and United States, the United States had decided to drop an atomic bomb on Japan. On Monday, August 6, 1945, at 8:15 Am, the nuclear bomb called ‘Little Boy’ on Hiroshima by an American B-29 bomber it killed an estimate of 80,000 people. At the end of year a total of 90,000 – 140,000 people were pronounce dead due to injury and radiation. About 69% of the building were completely destroyed, and about 7% were badly damaged. On August 9, 1945, Nagasaki was bombed. At 11:02 an atomic bomb called Fat Man, the north of the city was destroyed, killing an estimate of 40,000 people. There was a death toll of 73,884, 74,909 injured and another several hundred thousand diseased surrounding the place where the bomb was dropped. So now that you have learned this you will be conducting a project. You and your partner will conduct a scene of how you imagine the day this went down. So partners are… Shub and Lara, Rags and Janelle, Nadja and Joshua, and last but not least Jaidon and… “
Oh great I’m getting paired up with Derrick. Derrick can be one of the most laziest, rudest, meanest, spoiled little brats you could ever meet. Well now I’m going to have to do all the work. Uggggghhhhh!! Someone might as well take my whole night away. I guess I should get started.
At home writing the play…
I’ll do more research and then I’ll see what I will write. Wow! A lot of people died, and were injured during this. I would be great if I could go back in time, the day before the bomb dropped and save all those people. I would be a hero and all those kids and babies that died then could continue their life. Now that would be awesome. I should guess some shut eye.
Again, I did the usual before I go to sleep. I set my stuff up for school, fix my room, used the bathroom, and brush my teeth. Done! Now for my eight hour sleep.
August 5, 1945…
RING!!!! RING!!!! RING!!!! RING!!!! WAKE UP!!!! WAKE UP!!!! IT’S A NEW DAY TODAY!!!!
Oh no! I’m going to be late for school!!! I grabbed my clothes and got ready as soon as possible. I headed out the door then… Wow! Am I in JAPAN?!!?!??!!?
“Get your ten dollar t-shirts here.” “Come see the amazing Lugine for $19.95!” “FREE soda and water here! FREE soda and water here!”
“This is amazing! Ummmm… Excuse me sir. Do you know what day it is.” “
Well its August 5, 1945 of course. Are you visiting or something?”
“Sure something like that?” Oh no… I think I may have travel back in time and GOT THE CHANCE TO SAVE A WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE! YES!!
“Do you know where Japan’s army base is?” ” About 5 miles east up the hills. May I ask why though?”
“No but here’ five dollars.”
I ran as quickly a possible. I knew that I had a chance to save thousands of people’s life. I could make children and babies continue their life. All I have to do is convince the commander to move everyone out of the city. Well that’s going to be easy. I continued to run, stopped drank water, and continued. Surprisingly, I manage to reach there in 30 minutes awesome. OK here I go.
“I would like to speak with the man in charge… ” I asked a guard with a very big gun, “… This is very important urgent.”
“And who are you?”
“A person that will save thousand of people if you let me speak to the person in charge.”
” Commander some one is waiting here for you.”
“Send them in.”
I walked inside and there he was, standing there just staring at me. He looked in his 30′s, black hair, and had his dark brown eyes just staring at me. It didn’t look like he was going to do start the discussion so I started talking. “You need to evacuate everyone in the city by early tomorrow. The United States is going to send someone to drop an atomic bomb on your head and everyone’s head. I don’t care had stupid it sounds or how crazy it sounds but you need to do it.”
“You mind telling me how you know this.”
“If I tell, you would not believe me.”
“If you don’t there is no way I’m evacuating these people.”
It seems like I have no choice. I pulled out my ID and said, “I am from the year 2020. Tomorrow there will be a bomb dropped. I was at home doing my project on this and now I am here. Please just evacuate these people.”
“Is this fake?”
“I am NOT that sick of a person. This is real.”
“Ok. We will evacuate everyone.”
“Thank you.” I exit out of the base and there I was in my room. But what happened?
August 6, 2020…
“GET DOWN JAIDON! WE ARE BEING ATTACKED!” All I hear is the sound of guns and bomb being dropped on my home town. I asked my mom, what is happening. “Japan is bombing us. We are in war. The war that was suppose to end in 1945 didn’t because no one had died.” Oh no! We are in war because of me. What have I done?
