FF – 29th August 2014
This week the prompt was to include an alien with the following picture.
EENY, MEENY, MINEY, MO
The boat bounces across the choppy waves as we leave the rocket capsule bobbing in the waters behind us and head towards the USS Mason.
I sit across from the two astronauts, our pioneers of space and real American heroes. At least one of them is.
NASA received a garbled transmission and from what the eggheads can decipher it seems that one of our guys might not have come back from the moon. Which begs the question; why are there two guys sat across from me?
It’s hard to judge them. They still look shaken up from the landing as if they’d just been five times around Thunder Mountain.
As we close on the USS Mason time is running out. If a hostile extra-terrestrial is sharing my ride I need to know.
We hit a wave and the astronaut on the left is startled. I spot a tongue poke out that is not human.
Got you, you sonovabitch!
