As I watch my sister and her friend fly down the steep hill on their bikes towards the river, the feeling of dread and panic sets in. 

My sister laughs sinisterly as she nears the bottom of the hill.

My fear turns to confusion, why is she laughing? Does she not realise the imminent danger? 

As the bikes near the river’s edge, the front wheels lift slowly off the ground… I didn’t realise they could fly? 

And then an alien spaceship appears above them, it’s tractor-beam pulling them up and into a hole at the bottom of the alien ship.
