[00:07.99]Nobody wins (Part 1)
[00:12.43]Captain King, Master Spaceman,has been all over space.
[00:21.19]He often tells his friends stories of his adventures.
[00:28.03]This is one of them.
[00:32.08]Peters,our navigator,was lost again.
[00:38.24]We were running out of food,
[00:41.80]so towards evening,we landed on an unexplored planet.
[00:49.06]Lam,our pilot,brought us down gently
[00:55.59]in a valley close to a great cliff of smooth,black rock.
[01:03.53]In the cliff there were doors-of two storeys high!
[01:09.59]All twelve of us left the ship and approached the doors carefully.
[01:17.14]One was a little open.
[01:20.61]We went through it into a huge cave.
[01:25.66]The furniture inside was earth-type,but huge!
[01:33.41]You could play tennis on the bed
[01:37.49]and have a bath in the bowl on the bedside table.
[01:43.65]"Let"s get out of here,"Peters said."
[01:49.30]This is the home of a monster."
[01:55.25]"It"s clearly partly human,so it may be a friendly monster,"I said.
[02:04.92]"Don"t argue,"I said."We are going to wait."
[02:11.29]The ground began to shake.
[02:15.29]The door opened and some animals hopped in.
[02:21.92]They looked like kangaroos,giant kangaroos.
[02:30.67]Following them was a huge monster.
[02:35.95]It looked almost human except that it had a single,huge,red,glowing eye.
[02:48.20]The monster turned to close the door and shouted,"Good night,friends."
[02:58.55]The friends outside shouted,"Good night, Gork."
[03:06.02]Then Gork shut the door,turned round and saw us.
[03:14.17]He gave a roar that turned our blood to ice.
[03:20.12]"Aliens!Aliens in my cave.How did you get in here?"
[03:31.98]I thought fast,and said quietly, "Good evening,Mr Gork.
[03:41.05]My name is Nobody and these people here are my ..."
[03:51.11]Gork roared again,"I know who you are.
[03:57.87]You"re aliens and we kill all aliens in this valley.
[04:06.83]That"s our custom.
[04:11.09]Tomorrow,at dawn, you are going to die!All of you."
[04:20.34]Before we could move,
[04:23.89]Gork pressed a button on the wall beside him.
[04:29.53]Steel bars sprang from the ground around us and closed over our heads.
[04:38.99]We were caught like rats in a trap.
[04:44.03]Gork pressed another button,
[04:48.50]and a powerful magnet above the cage pulled our guns from our hands.
[05:03.88]"you were wrong about the monster being friendly, weren"t you?
[05:09.84]And why did you say your name was "Nobody"?"
[05:17.00]"I have a plan and "Nobody"is part of it,I replied.
[05:25.64]"You"ll see."I turned to Gork and said,
[05:31.42]"Mr Gork,it is true that we are aliens,but why can"t we be friends?
[05:39.96]Believe me,sir.We come in peace."
[05:45.73]Gork said,"You come in peace,but tomorrow you"ll be in pieces."
[05:57.07]He roared with laughter,"But listen, Nobody.
[06:03.83]I"ll do you a favour.
[06:07.67]Tomorrow,you"ll be the last one to die."
[06:14.02]Peters Turned towards me.When he spoke,his voice shook.
[06:21.47]"I hope your plan"s a good one,sir.
[06:26.51]If it isn"t ,we"re all going to die."
[06:32.28]"No,we"re not,"I said.
[06:36.33]"We"re all going to live,Peters!Trust me."

[07:47.33]3 Then she decided to cross the river,she took the Pujing ferry.
[07:54.98]She sat on the roof so that she could see the view.
[07:59.95]4 Next she went to Chengfeng Park.
[08:04.99]It was a hot day,so Gorkella had a swim in the pool.
[08:10.95]5 After her swim Gorkella was hungry,
[08:16.90]so she went to a restaurant and had a sea food meal.
[08:21.86]She ate lots of fish.
[08:25.70]6 Then she walked over to Zhongshan Park.
[08:30.67]She was feeling tired,so she sat down.
[08:35.32]She sat on a big piece of wood.
[08:40.18]It went on the steps very fast.
[08:44.62]7 Gorkella decided it was time to go home.
[08:49.95]She took the underground back to the Oriental Pearl TV tower.
[08:56.14]The other passengers stood clear of the doors when she got out.
[09:01.70]8 Lots of people were angry with Gorkella,
[09:07.87]because she"d broken lots of things.
