"Elara, look at that!"
Theo Zhang pointed at the sea with excitement.
I looked around, realizing that I was in a dimly lit room.
I followed his finger and saw a strange light flashing in the water.
The only light source was a soft blue glow coming from the walls.
It was like a giant underwater firefly.
As my eyes adjusted to the light, I noticed Theo and Marcus waking up beside me.
We were no longer on our sailboat—instead, we found ourselves in what appeared to be a small room aboard the alien craft that abducted us.
"Is it a UFO?" I joked.
"Where are we?" Theo asked as he sat up and looked around in confusion.
Theo laughed, "Maybe."
"I don't know, but this doesn't look like Earth," Marcus replied in a hushed tone.
We were on our way back to the harbor after a week of sailing in the Pacific Ocean.
"What are we going to do?"
Theo, Marcus Lee, and I had been friends since college, and we shared the same passion for sailing.
This time we decided to sail to the South Pacific and explore some of the remote islands there.
"I have no idea. This is insane," Theo said with fear in his eyes.
"What if they're here to abduct us? What if they want to experiment on us or something?"
Theo had just bought a new sailboat not long ago, so we were all excited to take it out for a spin.
"We should try to stay calm. Maybe they'll let us go?" I said nervously, not entirely convinced by my argument.
We named our boat The Odyssey, and it was our pride and joy.
A few seconds passed before any of us spoke again.
"Hey, maybe we're part of some new alien exhibit. 'Humans from Earth: The Next Big Thing!'" Marcus joked nervously.
It was a fifty-five-foot catamaran with three cabins, two bathrooms, and a spacious living area at the front of the boat.
It was fully furnished with everything we needed for a week-long adventure—kitchen appliances, fishing gear, snorkeling equipment, etcetera.
Now that our trip was over, I couldn't wait to take a hot shower and sleep in my own bed again.

I yawned as I looked at the horizon ahead of us.
I didn't find his joke very funny.
As far as I was concerned, we were in unimaginable danger and there was no way out.
I got on my feet and looked around the room for an exit, but the only thing in the room with us was a large window looking out into space.

The sun was setting, and the sky was painted in hues of orange and pink.
I slowly walked towards the glass and felt my heart skip a beat when I saw Earth far below us in the distance.
We were approaching the coast at full speed, and I could see the harbor in the distance.
"We're not on Earth anymore. We're in space or on another planet," I whispered in shock, unable to take my eyes off of our home planet.
"Slow down, Marcus," I said as I walked over to him.
I thought to myself as I stared at Earth below us.
The three of us stood motionless, too shocked by our surroundings to say anything.
He was steering the boat with a grin on his face, clearly enjoying Theo's new toy too much.
"We're almost there."
"I want to see the sunset," he said impatiently.
Voyage to Atlantis: Beyond the Stars
I rolled my eyes and took over the steering wheel from him.
As we stared out into space, a door suddenly opened behind us, illuminating the room with bright light from the hallway outside.
I turned around and saw three alien beings standing in the doorway and staring at us.
Marcus was always hot-headed, whereas Theo was more calm and collected most of the time.
Our personalities balanced each other out well, which is probably why we've been friends for so long.
The aliens were tall and slender with green skin and large eyes that seemed to glow in the dark.
Each of them was wearing what appeared to be some sort of armor or suit with intricate designs across their bodies. I had never seen anything like it before.
"Take it easy. We don't want to damage our boat on our first trip." "Alright," Marcus sighed dramatically as he walked away from me and went down to one of the cabins below deck.
Voyage to Atlantis: Beyond the Stars
As I looked back at the horizon, I thought about the past week we've spent on this boat.
It was an amazing trip full of fun and adventure, but it also felt good to be going home again.
I missed my family and friends back in San Francisco.
Suddenly, Theo yelled from behind me, "Elara! Look at that!"
He came running towards me with wide eyes and pointed at the sea.
"What is that?"
It was like nothing I've ever seen before—it almost looked like a UFO submerged underwater!
"Intervene? What actions are you talking about?" I demanded, my voice shaky yet defiant.
I tried to shake off the feeling of unease that washed over me and rubbed my tired eyes.
Xanathar's eyes locked onto mine. "Your recent activities in the South Pacific have awakened an ancient force, one that threatens not just Earth but multiple realms."
"It's probably just a submarine," I said with a yawn as I stared at the strange light below us.
As we got closer to it, its flickering became more intense until it began to illuminate the water with different colors—green, purple, red… "It's moving!" Theo said in surprise as we watched the strange object slowly moving beneath our boat. "What is it?"
"The light," Theo whispered, realization dawning on him. "It wasn’t just a random phenomenon."
"Precisely," another alien confirmed. "You encountered a dormant portal to our dimension. Your presence triggered its activation."
"I have no idea," Marcus said with wide eyes as he stood next to us. "But it's definitely not a submarine."
Marcus interrupted, "So what now? Are we prisoners?"
"Calm down," Theo said as he put his hand on Marcus' shoulder. "Let's not get ahead of ourselves here."
The strange object moved erratically beneath the surface for several minutes before coming to a stop right under our boat.
"We are not your captors," Xanathar replied calmly. "We are your guides. You must understand the magnitude of what has been unleashed and help us contain it."
Before we could process their words, the walls shifted, revealing a holographic map of interconnected worlds and portals.
"You must return to Earth," Xanathar continued, "and seal the portal before it fully opens. Failure will result in catastrophic consequences for both our worlds."

"I think it's following us," I said in surprise as I watched the object slowly moving towards the surface.
Theo, Marcus, and I exchanged uneasy glances. Our week-long adventure had led us to an unimaginable fate—saving not just our planet, but an entire cosmos.
"Alright," I said, steeling myself for what lay ahead. "Tell us what we need to do."
My heart was racing with excitement and fear.
What if it really was a UFO?
The aliens nodded approvingly. "Prepare yourselves," Xanathar said, as the room began to morph into a training facility filled with advanced technology and bizarre artifacts.
Our journey was far from over; it had only just begun.
"What should we do?" "Don't worry," Theo said calmly as we all stared at the object in front of us.
"Then let’s get started," Theo declared, his expression one of determination.
A few seconds later, a massive metallic saucer emerged from the water.
The object was covered in intricate patterns and glowing red lines that pulsated with light.
The alien beings nodded and began guiding us through the facility, teaching us how to use the technology at our disposal.
We spent the next several hours training under their guidance, learning everything we could about the mysterious force threatening our home planet.
"It looks like something out of Tron," Theo whispered to himself in awe.
When we had mastered everything they taught us, the aliens led us back to the ship's control room.
"It looks like an ancient Egyptian artifact," Marcus said.
"We will take you back to Earth now," Xanathar said as he prepared for liftoff, "The time has come to fulfill your mission."
The giant saucer hovered above our boat without making a sound.
The three of us looked at each other, silently steeling ourselves for what was about to come.
Its shadow cast over us and blocked out the moonlight.
As much as I wanted to return home, I knew that our journey would not be an easy one.

"It's beautiful," I whispered as I stared up at the saucer above us.
The patterns on its surface were mesmerizing to look at.
I watched in awe as the alien ship lurched forward, its engines roaring to life.
Theo Zhang, Marcus Lee, and I held on, our stomachs churning from the sudden acceleration.
We all stared in awe as the UFO hovered above our boat for several minutes before suddenly shooting a beam of light down on us.
The intense brightness of the light was blinding—I had to shield my eyes with my hands and look away.
Then everything went dark…When I came to, I found myself lying on a cold metal floor with an intense headache.
Voyage to Atlantis: Beyond the Stars
As we soared through space, I felt a mix of fear and excitement, realizing just how far we were from home.
Voyage to Atlantis: Beyond the Stars
The journey was shorter than expected, lasting only about fifteen minutes before the ship shuddered to a stop.
Xanathar, the leader of the alien beings who had abducted us, appeared before us in a flash of light.
He reassured us that our mission was nearly at hand and that they would soon return us home once it was complete.
Curious yet anxious, I questioned him further about our destination and what lay ahead.
Xanathar explained that we were heading to a distant planet to seal an interdimensional portal that had been breached by our actions in the South Pacific.
This portal threatened not only Earth but several nearby realms as well.
