The Underground Country Life

This is a story about a country that sank underground as a battle defense, and three boys who go off on a quest to make sure it never rises and destroys everything.


2. Trouble Begins

    I kept telling myself over and over that it was just a myth, but I wouldn't believe myself. It was almost as if I was in a war against me! I walked out of my house, and onto the busy streets of Luxembourg, where I lived. Bustling taxis where everywhere in sight, each one carrying a hurried businessman  or a rushed housewife, or a foreigner, or a Quetscentaart seller. I started my way walking over to the library, which was only a block away. on the way there, I walked past a television store. In the window, I saw they had "The Dating Game" on. But suddenly, a news report came on, and a crowd gathered.

    "We interrupt the dating game for this special announcement  the announcer announced. "The country of Belgium has been suffering minor earthquakes lately, but the magnitudes seem to be getting larger by the hour. At this rate, scientists believe that the earthquakes will reach Luxembourg in one week. That will be all"

   "That is terrible!" stated one person.

   "I can't believe it!" hollered another.

   "I think I left the water running!" said one man, who then quickly rushed off.

   I then remembered something about Dirtopia; the myth said that on the 100th year after the sinking, the country would destroy all of what was on top of it so that it could live there once more. Dirtopia sank in 1913. I quickly ran home. I raced up to my room, took out the book all about Dirtopia, and opened it. According to the map, Dirtopia was built on what is now half of Belgium and all of Luxembourg.
