Unexpected House Guest

by Denny E. Marshall

Clark could see the UFO flying. He was surprised when it landed in his back yard. The door slid opens and out walked a group of lizard-like alien creatures. Before this incident, Clark did not believe in aliens, though he had friends that are science fiction fans, and thought they did exist. Clark stood in the same spot, unable to move, frozen in fear. They saw Clark, and strode over to converse.

The alien in charge said to him, “Take me to your leader!”

Clark yelled out to his wife. “Honey!? There is someone here to see you!”
