“Did ya see it?”

“See what?”

“The thing in the sky, the bright thing.”

Petey rolled his eyes so hard his head ached. His sister. Such a weirdo. “There was no―”

“There was! I see’d it.”

Petey peered up, but his eyesight wasn’t so good. His glasses were inside where they always were. “Nah, noth―Whoa!”

The orange grey sky became flashlight bright. “That’s, that’s…” Petey scampered for the front door. “Ma!”

“Told ya I see’d it.” Ava grinned. Maybe it was aliens. Maybe they’d have kids to play with. Sticking her finger in her mouth she toddled toward the flash.

  1. They have landed at last! A fun read, if only we could have more than 100 words.
    “”Sticking her finger in her mouth she toddled toward the flash.”” Never to be seen again.

  2. Dear Laurie,

    Petey picked a bad time to leave Ava alone. I love her innocence. Maybe they’ll have kids to play with. Nicely done.



  3. Great idea. Let’s leave first contact to the kids

  4. I think the best representative of humankind would be a three-year-old kid. Nice one, Laurie.

  5. Best served with an orange glaze.

  6. Sounds like the first sign of life they’ve seen for a while…

  7. Nicely done! 🙂

  8. There was a dystopian feel to this, as though the kids hadn’t seen other people for a long time. Good story, Laurie.

  9. That last line–cute, adorable–but I fear it’s also tragic.

  10. May be that is also the solution for global peace. Imaginative write.

  11. I loved this, Laurie. Of course Petey will be in major trouble should something happen to Ava…

  12. Great idea. Nicely written.

  13. If the aliens have sent their little ones they will all get on with each other straight away.

  14. Sarah Ann permalink

    🙂 I wonder what they will find as they toddle off to look.
