Heidi’s Free Write: Do You Know Me? 1st Draft


I wonder if I met you before, have you met me? Everyone tells me that they know me or that I look familiar, and the crazy thing about that is everyone who says that, to me I don’t remember meeting! But then one day someone told me something I didn’t know about my past because of a insedent, a big one.

Hi, my name is Lincoln Parma. I am eleven years old. I have brown hair, brown eyes, white skin, and I love Batman, it is 2010 and I’m still bad at math. My best friend’s name is Alfred isn’t that cool! Well he isn’t really my best friend. He’s a kid in my class that doesn’t know I tell everyone he’s my best friend, but you still think it’s cool right? Never mind that lets just get to the story.


One day I was eating a meatball sub (my favorite) and was zoned out looking at a trash can at an abandoned quilt shop that I go to every day after school. It was a nice sunny day then it started to rain, the scent of flowers in my nose then it turned into dead fish, the sound of blue birds chirping into screaming rats. That’s when I saw her, she was the one that was going to tell me my past but neither me nor her knew it yet, she had dark skin, blue eyes, curly brown hair, and was wearing jeans, a dark green shirt with a flannel and white sneakers.


So without thinking I walked up to her and said “Who are you?” seeing that she was surprised that I said something to her she said “Nikki Harding, who are you?” then I said “Batman, oh sorry not Batman my name is Lincoln Parma” I could tell she was confused, but then she said another thing “Come with me” so without thinking about what my parents told me about following strangers she led me to a bus stop then out of nowhere she stopped then I saw what she saw a man but why did she stop just because she saw a man, after the man left she said these weird words like one of those villains that have secret language, but then


there was this weird glow and then boom we were in a different place it felt and smelled like a place you knew and loved but while I was going through mixed emotions I just said what I had to say “Who are you really were am I who am I!” Then the girl looked me straight in the eyes and said “You are not what you think, I am a WP9O and you are a KHLIMO I don’t know who you are but I do know people want to hurt you and me if you come with me I can take you to a safe place.” “What about my parents and family!” I said then Nikki said “You are putting them in danger by being with them then I said “What if they come looking for me and can’t find me?” 


The next day me and Nikki were walking though this garden that looked like out of a fairytale and she did that stopping thing again where she stopped for no reason but then she started to talk to me and said “Do you know who you are?” So I said “I am a “KHLIMO”.” Then she raised her voice a little and said “I was born on a different planet then I was sent to “TSZ” so I couldn’t be hurt. Who are you?!” Then I said “I don’t know my past but you sort of have that superman vibe because you were born on a different planet right?” next she said to shut up so I did and we kept walking.


Then we found a place to sleep for the night in a cave. It wasn’t comfy but I managed to use a rock as a pillow. Then the next morning I saw Nikki saying those weird words again but this time after she was done saying them, I got up and walked over to her and said “Why do you say those words?” Then seeing that she was giving me the serious “why do you care face I swallowed a lump in my throat with a “Gulp!”  Then she sort of looked sad and then I remembered that girls get depressed easily so I backed off but then out of nowhere she smiles and she says “They aren’t “some words” it is a language that we learn at “TSZ” T:he S:afe Z:one, and what I was saying was, how do I put it, oh like a prayer! But not to a god or goddess my “prayer” is heard by my teachers.”


After days of hiking up, we got to “MOP” or was it “KLQ” who knows but we got there and when we did a man about 70 years old with a long white beard, blue eyes, and a little fat walked up to us and said “OH HELLO! I am so glad you are both safe!” he said in a jolly and happy voice then he said “My name is Bob Riley!”, oh and he isn’t Santa. Then we made our way inside and I couldn’t believe my eyes so I rubbed my eyes like one thousand times until I believed what I saw everything was super high tech and there were floating elevators and tables and stuff like that but I know there has to be some logic behind that. Once we got to our rooms and by the way I can’t even start to explain how cool they are! But after I got settled in I couldn’t stop eyeing the bed so finely once I was done brushing my teeth, taking a shower, and getting my pj’s on that Nikki gave me once I got to my room I fell right to sleep on that big comfy soft bed.


The next morning I felt a little scared because I didn’t know where Bob or Nikki were so I felt like I was in the middle of nowhere. But lucky for me Nikki knocked on my door 20 minutes after I woke up, then she asked if I wanted breakfast and after days of eating wild berries and edible flowers I really wanted some real food so I instantly said “YES!”, and for some reason that made her smile so she said “They have giant buffet at the lobby so I intently made my bed brushed my teeth got changed into some close I found in the closet and when I opened the door Nikki was waiting right outside then we took the super cool high tech elevator to the lobby. Once we got to the lobby which takes like 5 seconds because, duh, we took the super cool high tech elevator, and I know I say that a lot but it is the truth. So once we got there my nose was filled with the smell of bacon, eggs, toast, pancakes, waffles, and more. Then I saw those floating tables and asked Nikki if we could sit there while we eat our breakfast and she said yes so I ran over to a table and was extra careful not to drop my food. While we were in the middle of eating a group of kids a few years older than us walked over to us and looked at Nikki and started to talk to Nikki in the langage Nikki told me about in the cave it seemed they were talking to her in a mean way, but after like 2 minutes of then bullying (well at least I think they were bullying her) Bob Riley broke it up. Then after breakfast which was mostly me eating and trying my cheesy jokes to cheer Nikki up I asked her what they were saying to her.
