The day the world changed

by me | Score: 4850

The ground shook people screamed you could hear the building creaking. I jumped to go under the desk I had been in the middle of lunch holding my container of pudding that was now on the ground. Our phones buzzed with the amber alert that there was a earthquake in our area. Which would have angered me if I wasn't trying to not die. A chunk of the roof fell unto the floor more screams. My heart was pounding. Jake was shaking which seemed odd for the man who had bragged about being fearless. I looked at my wristwatch this had been going on for 3 minutes and showed no sign of stopping. I was panicking to say the least. Then speakers blared no one knew from where the building didn't have any.
"The Magical Continent Bazaar has declared war on our country"
Everyone thought this was a joke people starting laughing hollow laughs. I was part of this group. Then the ground start glowing. I ran to jump out of the circle only for Jake to push me back in.
He had a sick smile on his face as he said "Thank you for your sacrifice."
I woke up in an unknown place pain made my body shake. A man in red shorts a plain white shirt walked up to me blankly handed me a soy sauce packet then left. I starred at the raw fish next to me with some plants I didn't recognize don't tell me he wanted me to eat it raw. I was starving though. I emptied all the soy sauce on to the fish and took a bite. I felt like vomiting but who knew when I will be able to eat again.
I'm glad I'm able to quickly adjust to this new environment.
A monster that actually looked rather cute appeared out of thin air.
