“Jonathan, did you see that? Something just landed in Shuster’s Field.”
“I didn’t see anything; I was watching the road. It was probably just a vulture or something.”
“No, Jonathan. It was a bright light. Pull over. I’d like a closer look.”
“OK, Martha. We’re in no hurry. Let’s find out what you saw.”
Jonathan parked the car on the edge of the field and husband and wife held hands as they traipsed towards a small object. As they approached, they saw that it was unlike anything they had ever encountered. It looked like some sort of a spaceship, but one too small to hold an astronaut.
They drew back suddenly when the hatch opened. As they peered in, they could discern a small, tan figure with elongated digits. In a high but raspy voice it croaked, “Phone home.”
