Cracks in the ground... Gravity reversing...

         Okay, here's some background. I, 17 year old Cami Lammila, come from a planet called Xemos-752. I was sent to earth in a space craft after a great disaster. I was on the ship for roughly 10 years. That means I was around 6 when the cracks started to form. Here's how my story goes:


         "Bye, mom. I'll see you later!" I say as I run toward the rising suns. I stumble over a rock and fall on my stomach. As I get back into my feet, I see a small crack in the ground. I really think nothing of it. Cracks like these were common in our area. We lived in the middle of the dryest place on the planet, y'know. Well, that was my first mistake. First of many.
         "Cami! Come over to the Brentano Dunes!" My friend Raven shouts, "Something weird is happening!'
         I start dusting off my coveralls. "On my way, Ray, just give me a second." I begin springing towards Raven, but I get stuck halfway up the dune. Sand trap! How could I be so stupid, I think to myself.
