    Do they look like the movies
    Or maybe more like us. Hmmm
    Maybe it’s a sexy alien…

    It was early morning with the mist still hanging around when Atira ventured out for a run. Running you see cleared her mind and soul. Helping her to escape the realities of all 2020 and 2021 have wrought on her life. Social distancing, loss of friends and family, food and staples shortages, along with the loss of fb and social media friends due to political rants. Life just wasn’t what she might have hoped what the future held 10 years ago.

    Suddenly Atira was blinded by a light overhead. A bright light that blinded her in it’s intensity. Stopping to look, she realized that she was frozen in place. Unable to move or do anything but breathe. As the light got brighter and closer she realized that she was a witness to something that was monumental.

    A UFO had her in it’s sights.

    Atira’s feelings were mixed. What was their intent? Was she to be a breeder or experimental lab rat? Did they come in peace? Was Earth about to be invaded? All were possibles but all Atira could think was that anything was better than being on Earth living in the current climate of personal, social, economic, political, and geological strife.

    Realizing her mind was being scanned by the beam she quickly projected her willingness to leave with the UFO. Leave for whatever the reason could be. Not having realized that a chance like this could even be possible, she was ready.

    All of a sudden the beam of light cut off and her mind scan complete. Darkness/early morning mist returned as the UFO quickly departed leaving her alone wondering if what just happened really did.

    Looking down she noticed a piece of paper on the ground that hadn’t been there. Picking it up she read “just looking for toilet paper, we’re out. Sorry to bother you”

    I saw an odd light in the distance… being curious, I decided to check it out. Oh My Goodness! It’s a UFO! Wonder who is inside? What are they doing here?…

    She had been waiting her whole life for her adventures to begin.

    Now she will really start to live her adventure. What’s waiting for her? Love, friendship, …

    She waits to be beamed up to see what waits and embrace life to the fullest. Her Alien has no idea what’s in store for him.

    The end

    “Do you see it?” Bix yelled from the opening in the belly of his space craft. Bix was laying on the floor of the ship, hanging his head out the opening. It looked like a bodyless talking head from Jason’s spot on the ground.

    “No!” Jason had been searching the ground for over thirty minutes. He was cold, hungry, and tired of looking. Plus, he hadn’t found the widget Bix said he’d dropped on the ground. “Are you sure you dropped it here?”

    “Well, I didn’t drop it there,” Bix replied.

    Jason stopped, looking up at Bix. The light was blinding when he looked up at the ship, and he dropped his eyes within seconds. “Where did you drop it?”

    “In the trees.” Bix replied with a quiet, almost embarrassed voice.

    Jason placed his hand on his forehead to shield it from the light, glaring up at Bix. “Then why in the blue blazes are we looking for it out in the middle of this field?”

    Bix’s shoulders moved into view and disappeared as he shrugged. “The light’s better out here.”

    (Yeah – tell me you didn’t see that one coming a mile away.)
