Who Was the Mastermind?

Lady Josephine thinks she is so wonderful! It is so difficult to even call her sister! She is only four years older and acts like I am a baby. I am 12! Soon I will be brought out to court and the people of wisselworm will know that I, Charlotte Wilhelmina Louise of Wisselworm is the smartest, fairest of the land.

I was so happy when Mama brought her cousin Randolph to court. Randolf loves natural philosophy and especially is interested in alchemy and machines. I secretly went to his room and saw his experiments. I loved reading about Mathematics and philosophy though mother said it was not lady like. I had my own secret laboratory in my chamber that Mama didn't know about. My Nanny and my tutor Herr Gruber loved helping me with my experiments. One night I figured out how to make lightning. I will not tell you how for it is secret. Herr Gruber said that certain people in the village would hang me for witchcraft but Herr Gruber can be silly.

My witch of a sister is now flirting with my Randolph. He will be my future husband not her! I saw her follow him around and pretend to be interested in his books. How much of a fool is he? One night I made my lightning and aimed it at my sister. I missed her and instead sent her flying into Randolf's arms!! Nanny saw me on my balcony and grabbed my wrist, dragged me up the stone stairs to my cold chamber and locked me in!

I have been reading Sci-fi stories lately and have been thinking about how Eli is a little alien, new to this world learning about what it means to be human. First he must struggle to breathe the air that is made of O2 and struggle to breathe out CO2. Then his eyes struggle to see beams of light and the blurs of the beings of the world oohing and awwwwing over him. He couldn't quite figure out what they look like but noticed they each have a peculiar smell. One of them smells familiar as he was a part of her the past few months. He feels a sensation that hurts his stomach and desires to have something in his mouth. This must be hunger. He doesn't know how to make this sensation go away so he cries. He notices the blurred Earth beings jump to put something in his mouth which make the pain of hunger go
