Flying S a u c e r

Read the following extract:


It was late evening, almost dark.
“I think I left my ball in the playground. Let’s just go and get it before
we go home,” said Tom to Suraj.
They squeezed through the gap in the fence into the playground. It was
a great safe place to kick a football round without people complaining
about it hitting their cars.
“What on earth is that!” exclaimed Suraj.
A bright green light filled the sky just above the playground and it
seemed to be dropping down in front of them.
“Flying saucer! It’s a flying saucer!” gasped Tom.

Task
Your task is to continue the story explaining what happens when the flying
saucer lands.
