He travelled the same journey each day
often noticing signs
watch out for deer running on the road
to preoccupied to care
always took usual route to place of work
not thinking anything would lurk!
Gathering speed at sixty miles per hour
found himself confronted
by a beast this the only way to describe it
no choice but to swerve
front end of his car ending up in a ditch
at a very steep pitch!
Shaken but not hurt it was hard to breath
air bag restricting breathing
yet managed to open door to make an exit
without even a scratch
the image embedded in his consciousness
what a hellish mess!
Darkness had filtered down as the police
arrived closing the inside lane
questions were asked what had happened
explaining he had seen a beast
no choice instinctively turned the wheel
or fate would have been sealed!
They wanted to know exactly what he saw
what he related like a yeti
but remembered seeing hands like claws
this they found hard to believe
this was rural part of England their reply
this he certainly could not deny!
Breathalyzed him surely he must be drunk
this he strongly protested
of course he was sober leaving them baffled
no other reports had come in
being taken to hospital just as a precaution
still seeing that image of distortion!
No physical injuries doubt on his mental state
was of major concern
kept in for observation and psychiatric opinion
at that time never knew
his rest was short lived as detectives descended
those tranquil moments ended!
Two serious looking plain clothes officers entered
abruptly into the side ward
with information on urgent new developments
on the bonnet of his car
deep claw marks consistent with a large bear
this I did not see I swear!
More upright like a very hairy ape like man
surely confirming his sanity
here was the proof it was not his imagination
then suddenly shattering noises
mayhem and panic filled the once quiet room
a furry beast came like a sonic boom!
The men in his room were thrown like rag dolls
he just managed to escape
what was this thing why was it chasing after him
months passed in hiding scared
the answers he felt certain would be his lonely task
in his own misery bask!
But searching the web found several others desperate
seeking the same quest
meeting joined forces to find what the phenomena was
there had to be a reason
for these terrifying events as more began to contact
this growing problem had to combat!
From just a few it grew into an organisation and army
as the horrendous truth dawned
not of earth but violent beings of another dimension
who seemed to target individuals
their battle had only just begun to halt the invaders
these violent alien raiders!
The alarms sounded there had been another incursion!
