Was on her way home from work saw it
just a dot in the cloudy sky
took no notice until it had got bigger
and a triangle shape visible
being alone she stopped at a local store
scared what it was unsure!
Mentioned it to the serving staff member
who showed no interest
drank a coffee hoping it would be gone
but driving off it followed
an ominous shadow closing in on the car
certainly not a distant star!
Now heard a quiet voice deep in her brain
but could not understand
radio crackled before all electrics failed
pressure and heat rising
coming to a halt on an empty highway
in front stood a figure so grey!
Soon joined by several others in her sight
beyond a hovering craft
unable to move paralysed there in the car
then removed roughly
dragged aboard this unidentified object
not knowing what to expect!
Yet could recall in her semi-conscious state
images from articles seen
of alien beings who looked exactly like these
unsure of any time passed
felt pain and these things leaning over her
grotesque that soon became a blur!
A noise made her jump and scream out loud
she was sitting in her car
on a side road as a train flashed by so close
dazed so very sore
looking around shaking and very scared
eyes blurry vision impaired!
Car engine was running what had happened
remembered object in the sky
every other thoughts seemed suppressed
clock indicated two-hours lost
since leaving the office where she worked
her phone rang her mood perked!
Her parents concerned she was not home
reassuring them she was fine
confused she anxiously drove slowly home
unable to remember the events
these would return to create real confusion
realising it was no dream or illusion!
That was the day the nightmare really began!
