Today was an unusual day - I finally put my plan of travelling to the far away planet of Mars into motion. My scientist friends and I had been planning for weeks (or was it months?) and the moment had finally come. But, we had yet to discover a feasible way of getting there...
I was already dressed in my space suit and double-checked all the gadgets and goo-gaws while my team were busy setting themselves up. I felt a slight chill in the air and wondered if I had made the right choice. What kind of dangers would I find on Mars? It was hard to say.
The tension in the room was palpable, everyone was completely focused on the mission. Then, suddenly, one of my friends screamed: “We can use a rock as a rocket!” I shivered in excitement and decided to take his suggestion - after all, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Our primitive rocket whizzed through the air, blasting off with enough force to make us all feel like we had been inside an eggbeater! It was an experience I’ll never forget, the feeling of total freedom and the joy of flying through the cosmos.
When we finally arrived on Mars, I was amazed to see how different the planet was from what I expected. There were towering structures made of rock and the atmosphere seemed somewhat breathable. What a wonderful sight.
But, my joy was quickly replaced with a feeling of dread. I noticed something strange and unsettling lurking in the shadows - a giant rock music playing vampire! It turned around in surprise and fixed its fangs on me.
I was frozen in fear as the vampire started to play some of my favorite tracks from classic rock artists such as AC/DC and Led Zeppelin! I realized that the vampire was using the music to literally suck all my stress out of me. In that moment, I knew I had discovered a real Mootzulea!
The vampire smiled slyly and flew away, leaving me standing there, totally stress-free. I can't believe it happened, but it did!
