It was a hot summer day in Witttenburg, Germany. I was on my way to school rushing through the path. Only ten minutes were left before the class would start. I rushed through the central park and sprinted into the western wheat fields. The wheat leaves tickled my face and the muddy path stained my new white shoes. Suddenly, a large shadow covered my whole path, making me feel dizzy for a second. As I glared up to see the huge object, a bright shining force of light beamed on my face. It looked like a dining plate except a thousand times bigger. A set of stairs popped out of the dining plate. And a figure in the light started walking towards me. My heart pumped as I took a step back every second. I was ready to sprint back but a sudden confidence inside me forced me to stay. Then out came a green figure.
By the time I had realised that the dinner plate was a UFO and the figure coming out of it was a alien. It was a green four-legged alien. It had only one eye and always kept it’s mouth open except for when it was talking. I was shocked to hear that he knew proper english as he introduced himself. I introduced myself to him. I had changed my mind, and so I decided to just take him home.
As I entered my house, I checked to make sure that my parents had left for work already. I served him some water to drink. But he decided to help himself with tap water. So we sat down for a chit chat. He went through my house observing each and every corner of it. After observing my house we sat on the table again.
Then he stared at the cross under my shirt and asked,”Oh! Are you a Christian?”
“No, I am a protestant.” I replied sadly.
He told me that he had never heard of the protestantism. So I explained to him that protestantism was a denomination of Christianity. I told him that my grandfather was a Christian. But during the time of Martin Luther everything was changed.
“Martin Luther was a german priest. During his time, the Christian church had become very worldly and the church officials had become more like politicians. So Martin Luther was the person to protest against the church officials. He was the brave one who had put his 95 theses on the church door, in which he criticized the church officials and their idea of indulgences.” I explained.
I also told him that indulgences was a way for people to get pardon from their sins without doing something good. “The conflict had kept going on for a long time. And then Martin Luther opened his own church. They had the same religion but they had changed some doctrines. Which later was called the protestantism.”
I happily expressed how my parents had decided to follow Martin Luther and how his idea of writing the bible in German helped us normal people to actually understand the religion and God.
By the end of our conversation it was almost the end of afternoon. So we rushed back to the wheat field to wait for the alien’s UFO. Then exactly at 6 pm the UFO landed and the alien left for it’s own home. And I never saw the alien again.
