I’ve gone through and edited a new short story for you all to enjoy. This one came out of a writing prompt that asked for the perspective of a bystander to an event that involved an extraterrestrial. Freed from the need to explain all that is witnessed I was able to focus more on the experience of the characters and the chaotic panic that ensues.
Like so many moments throughout the course of our lives we dont’ know all of the answers, and will never know. What the characters experience in this story is both incredible and terrifying , and explores what it would be like to be thrown in such a bizzarre situation.
Additionally the feeling of familiarity and alienness that the main character struggles with is both in line wiht the story and one that I can speak to with personal experience.
Hopefully you all enjoy this one, it was fun to write.
