Camp Out

Sunlight and Clouds

The enormous ship descended, staying in full stealth mode.  No Earthly vision or RADAR could spot the behemoth as it approached the planet, yet it had to reveal itself to take the air and soil samples.  Scans showed only two juveniles of the dominant species in the vicinity.  They were in a small fabric structure, possibly sleeping.  A decision was made.

“But Mom, it really happened!  The entire sky lit up, brighter than daylight.  Then the ship came down.”

“The last time it was monsters and before that, ghosts!  I will not allow you to sleep out again this summer!”

Sorry, I had to do a second one ;)

      My first instinct this week was the sci-fi take, but I wanted to do something a little more realistic. After reading a dozen of the stories and seeing no sci-fi, I had to go back. I’m glad you liked it!
