  • Dear Mum and Dad,
  • I still cannot believe that I am taking up this prize that I won last year.
  • I have to remind myself constantly that I am really in AD 3008.
  • Worried about the journey,
  • I was unsettled for the first few days.
  • As a result,
  • I suffered from “Time lag”.
  • This is similar to the “jet lag” you get from flying,
  • but it seems you keep getting flashbacks from your previous time period.
  • So I was very nervous and uncertain at first.
  • However,
  • my friend and guide,
  • Wang Ping,
  • was very understanding and gave me some green tablets which helped a lot.
  • Well-known for their expertise,
  • his parents' company,
  • called "Future Tours",
  • transported me safely into the future in a time capsule.
  • I can still remember the moment when the space stewardess called us all to the capsule and we climbed in through a small opening.
  • The seats were comfortable and after a calming drink,
  • we felt sleepy and closed our eyes.
  • The capsule began swinging gently sideways as we lay relaxed and dreaming.
  • A few minutes later,
  • the journey was completed and we had arrived.
  • I was still on the earth but one thousand years in the future.
  • What would I find?
  • At first my new surroundings were difficult to tolerate.
  • The air seemed thin,
  • as though its combination of gases had little oxygen left.
  • Hit by a lack of fresh air,
  • my head ached.
  • Just as I tried to make the necessary adjustment to this new situation,
  • Wang Ping appeared.
  • "Put on this mask,
  • " he advised.
  • "It'll make you feel much better.
  • " He handed it to me and immediately hurried me through to a small room nearby for a rest.
  • I felt better in no time.
  • Soon I was back on my feet again and following him to collect a hovering carriage driven by computer.
  • These carriages float above the ground and by bending or pressing down in your seat,
  • you can move swiftly.
  • Wang Ping fastened my safety belt and showed me how to use it.
  • Soon I could fly as fast as him.
  • However,
  • I lost sight of Wang Ping when we reached what looked like a large market because of too many carriages flying by in all directions.
  • He was swept up into the centre of them.
  • Just at that moment I had a "time lag" flashback and saw the area again as it had been in the year AD 2008.
  • I realized that I had been transported into the future of what was still my hometown! Then I caught sight of Wang Ping again and flew after him.
  • Arriving at a strange-looking house,
  • he showed me into a large,
  • bright clean room.
  • It had a green wall,
  • a brown floor and soft lighting.
  • Suddenly the wall moved - it was made of trees! I found later that their leaves provided the room with much-needed oxygen.
  • Then Wang Ping flashed a switch on a computer screen,
  • and a table and some chairs rose from under the floor as if by magic.
  • "Why not sit down and eat a little?
  • " he said.
  • "You may find this difficult as it is your first time travel trip.
  • Just relax,
  • since there is nothing planned on the timetable today.
  • Tomorrow you'll be ready for some visits.
  • " Having said this,
  • he spread some food on the table,
  • and produced a bed from the floor.
  • After he left,
  • I had a brief meal and a hot bath.
  • Exhausted,
  • I slid into bed and fell fast asleep.
  • More news later from your loving son,
  • Li Qiang
