It`s 5 in the morning. My alarm clock rang. It was raining outside, and the clock men went up Big Ben to be sure everything was fine with it. Soemtimes I would wonder, what would happen if Big Ben stopped working?
As much as I didnt want to think of that, I did. Mum had told me that it would make the whole of London fall into chaos. If thats true, then the Clock Men would be in big trouble.
Luckily if my mom was Lying, I could just ask Uncle Pete, he worked at the Clock.
I get ready for the day and grab a notebook. I eat some toast and then I zoom out of the house. Uncle Pete wasnt too far.

What? No. That`s impossible. The earth isnt ready for that technology. Maybe what Mum was saying is true, but I`m still going to ask Uncle Pete.
What? No. That`s impossible. The earth isnt ready for that technology. Maybe what Mum was saying is true, but I`m still going to ask Uncle Pete. I knocked on his door. Nobody answered. Of course, he was inside Big Ben!
The Clock ticked and tocked. I now wonder, what if time ends? What happens if the world ends? Where will we go? Will we die? Will we live? I didnt want to think of that much. Once I reached the tall tower, I saw two men who I knew werent going to let me in.
¨Sorry, Kid. You need an adult. Go back home.¨ One of them said. ¨But.. I`m the nephew of Pete Wilson.¨ I said. They laughed. ¨Huh, your uncle aint that great, ya know? Has he told you about the time he messed up Big Ben? Ha, Thats why we are actually 5 minutes apart from the real time.¨ The other said.
They are lying. I know it. Uncle Pete tells me everything. But What if that was true? I moved past those guys and ran up the stairs. They were following me, so I hustled faster.
By the time I went up, Uncle was there, and I couldn't tell if he was doing his job or doing the wrong thing. He stared at me.

¨I just wanted to ask you a few questions.¨ Uncle Pete dripped sweat from his forehead. ¨Come, Come with me.¨ Pete pulled Oliver to the outside of Big Ben. There seemed to be a spot where they could stand and enjoy the view.
¨Wow... It would be a shame if someone fell, right?¨ Oliver said. ¨Y-yes. When people die, that´s when their time ends.¨ Suddenly, two men burst in and tried to grab a hold of Oliver. Uncle Pete tried to hold them off, but Oliver was right at the edge. ¨Goodbye, Uncle. I think this is when my time ends.¨ Uncle Pete`s eyes widened.
Right there, Oliver fell down from Big Ben. Pete shut his eyes, and cried.
Eventually, our time will end. But let`s enjoy it while we can, right?
