Alien Invasion


by M. J. Joachim
Just another day switching laundry and doing chores… everything except the garage, right? There was always an excuse not to clean the garage, especially with all the noises that seemed to come from in there recently.

Natalie tried to dismiss them as much as she could. When that didn’t work, she blamed it on the neighbor’s pregnant cat, convincing herself that Cali had her litter in there, far from any people and disturbances. Big trucks always had a way of setting off car alarms in driveways and rattling windows on her street; she attributed the noises to those, as well.

As she loaded the washer this particular day, the noises grew louder and louder. Natalie could hear them above the water filling the machine. She reached over and double bolted the garage door, making sure the newest chain was latched securely. “I wish these noises would just go away!” she shouted out loud. And that’s when she knew…

“I’ll check again to find out more,” it said. Natalie felt the blast of energy enter her body, as she watched the garage door disintegrate before her very eyes. “I need to inform my people about you,” the alien replied.
