The Tractor Beam

The Tractor Beam

It was October 1996, and the farmer Joanne was harvesting her corn. She had worked hard and long on it, and now she was finished. Suddenly, she heard a peculiar sound. ‘Zum, zum, zum’ it went. Everything suddenly went silent. Then, a huge spacecraft burst from behind the undergrowth. It slowly floated towards Joanne’s farm! Oh no! She had to think fast. Then she came up with a plan.

The Plan

Without a second thought, Joanne sprinted into the house and grabbed a mirror. She used the mirror to shine the sun into the pilot’s face. Did her plan work? Of course it did. The pilot crashed through the window, splintering it into tiny little pieces. He crashed onto the ground and never got up. Meanwhile, the ship was still moving. It hadn’t gone to plan. All of a sudden, a large ray shot down on Joanne. She looked down, and saw she was no longer standing on the ground. When she reached the top of the beam, she disappeared into the floating ship as it drifted off into the sunset.
