Ever since the incident 20 years ago… no, he wouldn't think about that. It had ruined his life, just because he warned NASA about the bloody meteor. NASA ignored the warning signs.

Hey guys Codla here. Well I had to write a story for science so here it is :) Ill be updating everyday since I have already finished it. (unless i forget :P)
20 years ago
Jim Cosa, had so far had a normal day at work. Being a cleaner at NASA wasn't exactly the highest paying job but it was interesting and that was good enough for him.
No one was working there tonight, so he was given the role of closing up. He was about to lock the front door when he had the strangest the feeling; the feeling that something was not quite right.
He felt the hairs on his neck start to prickle, and his heart rate increase in speed and volume. He froze, scared to turn. He plucked up the courage and did. But there was nothing there.
He shrugged it off and continued to lock the door. But the feeling came back. He froze yet again.
An owl up in the sky above hooted making his head snap up to it. That's when he realised it. The 10 years working in NASA many people would tell him about space. They liked to have a good chat with the cleaner about it, and Jim was all ears. And he knew, by just looking something wasn't right. He couldn't place his finger on it, so he hurried inside, lighting the place up again. He unlocked the massive grey sliding doors that were the only things standing in his way between him and the great telescope.
Once unlocked, he hurried inside and ran up the spiral stairs to the eye hole of the telescope. He focused it and stared around, trying to pick up what was wrong.
Then he saw it. It was tiny, minuscule. But it was definitely there. There was an orange-black speck he could just make out in the night sky. He knew from his learning's that it was a meteorite.
And its path was straight at Earth. He felt himself beginning to panic but tried to calm himself down. It's alright, I'll just tell everyone at work tomorrow. No big deal. Let's just go home, go to sleep and forget about it for now. It's not like it will hit Earth in the next 100 years or so, I don't need to panic full out now.
And with that, he headed home, planning on telling everyone the next day.
Thanks for wasting to your time and reading :D Now i'll waste your time even more and beg for you to review :) REVIEW PLEASE!
