It is Monday and once again I am participating in the Mondays Finish the Story flash fiction challenge. The rules for this challenge are to write a story that goes with the photo and uses the opening line provided. The word limit is between 100-150 not including the opening line. Here is the photo and my story!
“On March 9th, 2015, three objects were reportedly seen in the skies over the Borracho Todos los Tiempos Vineyard.”
Sitting at her desk working, she glanced out the window and noticed the objects. Picking up the phone, she called to the other office. “Look out the window!”
“What the heck are they?” asked Alice.
“I don’t know.”
Suddenly, the lights from the objects glowed brighter. Bright beams of light shot out of the vessels towards the two windows. Both Brittany and Alice simultaneously disappeared from their offices and found themselves standing behind a wine bar on the alien vessel.
Staring at them were large headed, skinny grey beings that had huge black unblinking eyes. The aliens were pounding on the bar. Inside their minds, the women heard the words, “More!”
Realizing that the aliens were asking for wine, they filled the raised glasses. Once done, the women looked at each other. Realizing the aliens were drunk, they raised the bottles said in unison, “I’ll drink to that!”
