Friday Fictioneers: Invasion







Year 2035


Last month the aliens landed. It was quite the episode. Doors were boarded up. Food was almost sold out in the shop in anticipation of the invasion. Some tape is still up from the situation. We have been warned they may try again.

You hear so many stories about their weird-looking faces and their strange suits. Rumours are abound that they wear even stranger clothing down on their planet.

They used to send these robotic things. Citizens? Now there’s a new type coming …

It’s quite hard living on Mars with all these strange creatures coming from Earth.

    Typical, although as humans we seem to be eager to invade all the time, so why not another planet too?

  2. Great twist ending – totally unexpected. Thanks for surprising me. 🙂

    Yes, we are strange creatures. I agree. Well told.

  4. Dear Lisa,

    That was a twist. Nicely done.



  5. Excellent twist! Shifting our general perspectives of theses horrid aliens only to realise we are the aliens.
