Major Tom. That's what my idol had sang and taken up as his identity in his song, Space Oddity. I leaned back in my seat and pressed play on my ipod, blasting the song. It was quiet otherwise. Nobody home to judge me. No one around to tell me to get my chores done. Just me, my room, and David Bowie. I closed my eyes, letting the music overtake me.
Just a second, with my eyes closed, peace surrounding me, it was disrupted. A thump. I jumped and opened my eyes. What? This wasnt right. It couldnt be. Where was my room? The ugly green walls? Where was my house? Now, nothing surrounded me. Nothing but the unknown. I stood. At least i could still stand. And i looked around. It took me this long to realize that i wasnt the only human roaming this place. But i was the only human looking lost. They all seemed to think this was all completely normal. Going to where ever they needed. I needed to take this all in. Finding the strength, i began to walk..

I hope people can understand, that this is not completed. Just a raw first draft. Needs much editing.
