Last door closed (Friday Fictioneers)

We’re safe here. The floor was standing room only, packed with people. Whimpering, terrified people barely dared to breathe. Afraid to make any sound. Even the children were silent and as pale as ghosts.

When the ships landed, we were excited. Finally. We had proof life on other planets existed.

Turns out… No so much.

But other dimensions exist. And these humans had figured out a way to travel between them. They needed a new home and they were taking ours.

The holy places were the one border they would not cross. For now, we’re safe.

But for how long?

  1. Love the idea that the aliens are ourselves. Clever

  2. Intriguing set up. Good to know humans in other dimensions are as equally destructive as we are!

  3. That’s one way to stem the decline in churchgoing! Nice one Laurie.

    My story – ‘This way that way!’

  4. Dear Laurie,

    Humans from other dimensions. That’s a new one. We have seen the enemy and he is us.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  5. That’s exactly what many of us would do if we could travel dimensions. Intriguing story.

  6. Taking the prompt to a whole new dimension. Thought-provoking story.

  7. Great take on the prompt:) Religion as a safe place, even from extraterrestral enemies!

  8. Well, hell.
    Well done!

  9. I love that they respect holy places.
    Who knows!

  10. We finally have to face ourselves. What an interesting concept. It doesn’t bode well.

  11. Holy places are often the line that will not be crossed.
    But for how long?
    Randy

  12. I think our worst enemies would be exactly the same as ourselves.

    Only a very few earth people will be able to move to a different dimension after destroying the planet and leaving the less fortunate to their fate.
