The Aliens Have Landed

01dsc09455

There appeared to be only one alien ship, but it was was enormous. Most people on the ground only saw the clouds of exhaust being emitted from the ship, almost fully carpeting the sky, leaving only small pockets of blue.

03dsc09440

The billowing gray clouds interrupted phone and internet service, leaving people disconnected and isolated. Instead of joining friends and neighbors to question the ship’s arrival, most people hid behind locked windows and doors. It seemed like everyone preferred to be ignorant of what was happening, rather than find out the worst.

In the beginning, I saw some cars on the road. A lady walking her dog. (Or was it an alien walking a dog?)

But it wasn’t long before the roads became deserted. If people found it hard to trust each other before the ship arrived, it was even worse afterwards.

A desperate hush fell over all the inhabitants of Earth.

dsc09468

We were all waiting, but we didn’t know what we were waiting for.

dsc09457

Even the trees seemed to be frozen in time.

dsc09486

I waited at the top of the hill, the only human for miles around who dared to venture outside. I wasn’t afraid of the aliens. I had spoken to them before. They were all pretty nice, especially compared to humans.

zdsc09453

No, the aliens weren’t aggressive or violent… unless provoked beyond reason.
