CONQUEST   Leave a comment

I was walking home after education and about to duck into to the bushes to sneak some time to read the rebels’ news pamphlet, when it happened. The sudden darkness that engulfed me was so intense a match would have sputtered out. The darkness slowly moved west over my head. Normally, I ignored these shadows, but this time the darkness was so dense and stifling, I couldn’t. I looked up and instead of seeing a cloud cloaking what we all dreaded to see, I saw a long ship clearly in the night that should have been day. I felt safe hidden in the bushes looking up at the apparition. The ship was like something out of Star Wars, except this ship had a whole array of long arms-like structures reaching towards the ground, and I shuddered to think what it was all for. Later I learned I was right to be terrified.

He looked up at the two moons wishing he was a Walker and could go to the moons and further one day, like his brother.

My husband walked down the path to me completely focused, and then hugged me as we fell laughing to the ground in relief. I knew
immediately we were going, and we would be able to have children.

The interstellar ship dropped out of slip space and into the orbit of the green planet. All the crew crowded onto the bridge to look at their empty new home. Then there was the unmistakable static of a radio signal.

He crushed the cigarette into the ashtray thoroughly as he walked out. I looked at the various aliens facing me now that my protector had obviously left me. I had only moments before they descended upon me, so I sat back in the chair and smiled at them.
