L plates (Friday Fictioneers)

May 11, 2017

“Do you think they’ll notice?”

“How could they not!”

Biza stared at the human vehicle and clutched at his forehorn.

Swisen patted his buddy on the shoulder. “You never know. We shouldn’t be here when the owner returns though.”

Biza looked up through red rimmed eyes. “Yes, yes let’s go.”

Swisen shook his head and glanced from the injured human transportation to their ship. The forceshield had protected their vessel. The human should have left a protection barrier. He debated leaving a message disc to apologise. Biza’s first flight could have gone better. Earth was too cramped for spaceflight training.

  1. I’ve always suspected if there were flying saucers, that we are being zapped by teenagers

  2. I like that aliens have the same problems with traffic that we do! 🙂

  3. Haha! I liked this. Collision with an alien spacecraft. Explain that to the insurance company!

    • Thanks Michael! Ha ha well driving is a crazy thing these days… gotta be careful who you… run… into

  7. Dear Laurie,

    I think my poor bashmobile could use a force field, too. Cute story.



  8. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover permalink

    Very creative take on the prompt. Nicely written.

  9. Yes indeed. Earth is too crowded; they should try Mars. 😉
    Good story and a novel angle on the prompt.

  10. This was a lovely lighthearted piece. Alien learner drivers, it’s like something Gary Larsson would draw in the Far Side
