When he heard the bell ring, Jim ran to the door as fast as he could. As he opened the door, he was shocked. In front of him was a man wearing a black cloak covering all the way to his feet, with a white laser gun on his hand and a faint glow around him.
“Who… who are you?" Jim asked fearfully. “I am Doctor John from Rock City in 2045. Our city has been invaded by robots and we need you to save our city." He said, before Jim could react, Dr. John pulled him inside the floating car and traveled to 2045.
Rock City was in chaos, there were explosions everywhere and missiles were flying in the air. Jim could also see people defending from the robots. “Our mission is to blow up the control system of the robots," said the man in black cloak. After they had landed, Jim was given back his laser gun and together they fought the robot army. However, when then almost succeeded, a missile flew down and exploded right in front of them.
Jim woke up with sweat on his face before had realized it was just a dream when his mom told him to wake up. It was a normal day as usual.
