The Matrix

(0) Kenny awoke with a gasp. Cold sweat covered every cubic inch of his face. He had the wierdest dream ever. "Strange," he whispered (making sure he wouldn't wake his parents). Soon he fell asleep again. Here he is, in the same dream. "Welcome to the real world," The person that was talking turned out to be a tall, muscular man. He was black, and his clothes appeared to be shredded. "Wh-what's going on...?" Kenny managed to say. The man gave a faint, unconvincing smile. "The world you live in is fake, created, and controled, by super-computers." Kenny immediately got up and went up to the front. Endless darkness spread for miles around. Then he woke up again.

(1) Then next day, he started researching. He searched every chat room, web page, and forum tha there was on "fake reality." Before he stopped looking completely, he got an e-mail. "YOu want to know more?" Kenny stared at the computer, puzzled. "sure" he typed, and clicked the reply button. Another e-mail came quickly. "Turn left near the cardboard sword." Kenny snickered. (Jordan, Age 8 to 12, 4/25/2004 7:49:31 PM, TheMatrix)

(2) "That's just stupid." Kenny said. Soon, it was time to go to school. Kenny walked down the street. Suddenly, something caught his eye. Small children holding cardboard swords. (Jordan, Age 8 to 12, 5/8/2004 1:23:15 PM, TheMatrix)

(3) He hesitated. Cardboard swords...dare he turn left? He had two choices: one, he could go to school and be safe from strangers, and two, he could learn more about this new world called the Matrix. He took a big gulp and turned left. There, on the sidewalk, was a woman. Her hair was shiny and black, and she wore a black, leather coat. She stared at him through her pitch-black sunglasses. "I-I thought your e-mail w-was funny." He stammered. She took out a cell phone and pressed "0." "Why is she calling the operater?" Kenny thought. "Get me Morpheus." Morpheus...that was a forum name that he knew! The lady paused. "Morpheus? Well, he's just a kid! No, I'm not joking! He's small! How old are you, kid?" Kenny was completely puzzled. "Um...13." He uttered. "13. So...? Alright." She said, and hung up. "Follow me, kid." Kenny was starting to get annoyed. "My name is Kenny." The lady smiled as she looked behind her. "Well, Kenny, You'd better hold on!" And just then, a man-flying-grabbed the woman's arm and pulled her into the air as she grabbed Kenny. (Jordan, Age 8 to 12, 5/10/2004 1:10:05 AM, TheMatrix)

(4) Kenny awoke in a dull, poorly-furnished building. The were people all around him, including a gargantuan black man in front of him. "Look, kid," he said, gruffly. "I'm on a schedule here. You have five minutes. In this hand, you see a red pill. It will take you to another world, where you will learn more and be able to save humanity. In the other hand, I have a blue pill, which brings you back to your house and you forget all of this. Take your time." Behind him, the lady whispered, "Take the blue pill." He thought about it. "Hmm...saving the world...tempting, but when I go back home, I might do all of this over and over again. That'd be pointless..." Finally, he decided to take the red pill. "You're sure?" The man in front of him said. "Yes." Kenny impatiently added. "Then prepare." (Jordan, Age 8 to 12, 5/15/2004 12:57:59 AM, TheMatrix)

(5) He was then led to a very dark room where they attached all kinds of machinery to his head. "What's going on?" he thought aloud. The woman that had brought him there looked up at him, furious. "Do we have to do this, Morpheus?" Morpheus sighed. "Need I remind you that not everyone says yes?" Then the woman, Trinity, groaned. "Ready?" Morpheus said. Everyone replied, "Ready." "What's happening?" Kenny cried, a little nervous. "Just focus on that painting, Kenny." Morpheus replied. (Jordan, Age 8 to 12, 6/28/2004 6:05:51 PM, TheMatrix)

(6) Kenny was a little bit scared by this and wet his pants. He turned to Morpheus and said "have you got a spare pair?" (James Anderson, Age 1 to 4, 8/17/2004 1:56:55 AM, TheMatrix)

(7) heh said no, and moitioned for him to look at the painting. After a while, it began to obsure and melt to the floor. It edged it's way toward Kenny, who was screaming and ripping the machinery off of his body. "No!" spat Morpheus as Trinity and Neo held him down. The creature that was once a painting crawled up Kenny's leg and onto his body, completely smothering him. "Put that stuff back on him, quick!" He said, frantically, to Trinity and Neo, while he, himself, helped. Kenny couldn't breathe. He could only feel the painting/mucus ooze down his throat, through his stomach and lungs. "This is it," he thought. "I'm going to die." (Jordan, Age 8 to 12, 10/13/2004 10:11:21 AM, TheMatrix)

(8) When Morpheus said, "Put that stuff back on him, quick," he was talking about the machinery. (Jordan, Age 8 to 12, 10/13/2004 10:13:13 AM, TheMatrix)

(9) (from paragraph # 7) But suddenly , the multi-colored ooze from the painting was changed to a liquid-like red. He found that he was in a pool of some sort. He got up and gasped for air. No sooner did he rub his eyes that a machine came and grabbed his neck. He stared at it. It had many tentacles and one big red eye. It drilled a hole into the back of his neck as he screamed in pain as the machine let go of him. Then he fell through a tube and into a large pool of water where he was pulled to a surfac by a robotic claw. He closed his eyes. Today was a long day.

(10) To be hello someone continue it. lol no (Flik, Age 13 to 18, 8/15/2014 8:22:59 AM, TheMatrix)
