From deep in the night sky, a strange craft emerged with a deafening silence. Hovering only feet off the ground, lower doors opened and landing gear emerged to allow the luminescent object to settle to the ground.
My feet were rooted to the soil as though the fear ravaging my body was refusing all movement. My trusty K9 was no longer by my side and was heading at top speed for safe haven far from the spectacle. Here I stood alone with my supper steak sizzling on the barbeque. With a rumbling stomach and uninvited visitors over… or should I say, down for dinner, the smell of my cooking reminded me of my number one rule. Always feed the hungry, especially when they may be packing ray guns. My reputation for barbequing must be broader than I thought.
From a now open door in the craft, three short alien creatures emerged and made their way toward me as though possessed. My thoughts were circulating at high velocity and were moving so fast that rational thinking was missing the point. My legs were turning to jelly and my eyes fogged. Only inches from my post at my cooking machine they now stood. Is this my last meal, my last breath on this earth? Will my dog ever stop running?
The Tallest of the short aliens raised his hand and addressed me. “Can we get them to go?”
