MY EXTRAS COMPETITION SUBMISSION THAT I COULDNT SUBMIT BECAUSE IT WAS TOO LATE AND IM STILL NOT DONE AND IM GONNA MAKE IT INTO A BOOK

MY EXTRAS COMPETITION SUBMISSION THAT I COULDNT SUBMIT BECAUSE IT WAS TOO LATE AND IM STILL NOT DONE AND IM GONNA MAKE IT INTO A BOOK:

           The lights of New Pretty Town glowed in the distance. She stared at them longingly. Her sixteenth birthday was on April 13, four days away. And yet, she would never make it there. Never feel the thrill of the non-stop partying and fun. Ugly for the rest of her life.

          Ara looked around. Everybody was ugly. She chose this fate, now she didn’t understand why. Pale skin, far-spread eyes, monkey feet; they were supposed to help them adapt, but they were just making her feel sick.

          She looked up at the stars. They made her feel incredibly small. Billions of stars, just staring at her, almost like millions of eyes. The night was beautiful, with just a little breeze and the perfect temperature for, leaving. She looked down at her monkey feet and shivered. It was just so…not right. And her hands, they were so creepy. With an extra bone in each finger, it made her feel long and off-balance. She curled her fingers into a fist. They bent in one too many places. It felt like she was wearing gloves that were a size too big.

          “Please remove your hover rigs.” Ara jumped. She looked around frantically. It was just Udzir-sensei. Looked like they were taking off soon. Ara turned off her rig. Gravity settled over her like a blanket of rock. She took an unsteady step forward and started un-strapping a shoulder pad, when she was suddenly crushed by something hard and bony. She fell to the ground and let out a grunt. Something was sticking in her side. An elbow.

          The pressure lifted and someone grabbed her wrist. She was pulled to her feet by a boy. Well, she thought it was a boy. He looked at her with those freakishly wide eyes and mumbled an apology before stumbling off, only his left side was still floating. She stared after in his direction.

          People started getting into the ships, Udzir-sensei calling off names. “Takara Aomori please step forward.” At first she didn’t hear him, then he repeated it and her heart started racing. She was still as a rock. Everyone was looking around, trying to find her. Like they ever could. Nobody knew who she was. Her friends chickened out, and her family thought it was “unnatural.”

          Udzir-sensei repeated her name. She sighed and stepped forward.

          “Please remove your hover rig Takara,” he said, calm and patiently. It reminded her of middle pretties back before the mind rain. The only difference was that middle pretties back then didn’t have giant eyes, pale skin, and monkey feet. She scrambled to un-strap the rig. Every eye was on her. Every eye screen flickering, most likely looking up her feed and face rank. She didn’t have anything on her feed, they were a waste of time. And her latest face rank was 847,427. The number sat in the corner of her vision.

          A mumble started in the crowd. She continually heard the words “Aomori,” “Ara,” and “total extra land.” What did they know? Technically they were in Extra land too. She finished taking off the rig and stood up. Her face rank jumped up to 847, 129. “That was fast,” she breathed.

          Udzir smiled and said, “Right this way Takara.” He showed her to the door of the nearest ship. She took three steps toward it, and stopped.

so…whatta ya think…
