A Sample Paragraph of a Creative Essay

The moon was bright and the sky was lit up with stars. Across the horizon was a flying object. Could it be an UFO or was it just a plane in the sky. A little ways away the object landed. Out walked two space aliens. The aliens walked into town seeking people to kidnap and take back to their planet. The aliens would sprinkle stardust on a sleeping person, which would transfer the person onto the space ship. After the aliens caught several people they made their travel back to the alien universe.

This is a sample paragraph of a creative essay about space aliens and their kidnapping different people to take back to the alien universe. The writer used her imagination to create this essay.
