I am taking part in Mondays Finish the Story, which is a flash fiction challenge that provides a photo prompt and the opening sentence to your story. The rules indicate that the story you come up with must be between 100-150 words, not including the opening line… Are you ready for my story?
“Racing down into the atmosphere, the unidentified object crashed, leaving behind one heck of a huge crater and a plume of smoke that could be seen from miles around.”
Inside the craft, the crew recovered. “What the heck Charlie! I told you to bank right, not left!” said Jack.
“Sorry about that,” Charlie replied.
Getting on the com, Jack asked the crew to respond if there were any casualties. All responded. There were only bumps and bruises. “At least this is not as bad as it was in Roswell, New Mexico.”
“Smitty,” said Charlie, “take a team and check the exterior. There’s a lot smoke. Report any damage.”
Smitty and his team headed to the transporter room where Vic was at the ready. Looking at the team, he saw that all were in place. Turning towards Vic he said, “Energize.”
Once outside the craft, they began their inspection. Rounding one bend of the ship stood a team of planet natives with guns pointed at them. “Oh no, please tell me it is not you again!” exclaimed General McAdams.
