Saturday Night!

Already the effects of the alcohol made her feel ill

but could not let her friends down

she was having fun their night had only just begun

loud laughter everyone swaying

a regular Saturday night out drunk on a city street

a buzz she believed could not be beat!

 

Crowded music was loud adding to the excitement

no hint of any dangers close by

though their laughter would soon no longer be heard

panic replacing joyous banter

revellers were talking as junks of masonry began to fall

a beast soon their flesh would maul!

 

A huge dark shape swooped from thick cloudy skies

colliding with many their bodies shattered

crushing them with its claws and razor-sharp beak

at first they could not comprehend

hundreds scattered from this an unexpected scene

with images understandably obscene!

 

It was jumping and flying down amongst the buildings

as many disintegrated in its wake

others were instantly snatched by the long sharp claws

at such a speed was impossible to tell

at a party being held at a night club on its roof top bar

he was filming a situation so very bizarre!

 

There originally to record the celebrations of the guests

his attention quickly drawn away

glimpses of the attacker looked like a prehistoric beast

those around were panicking

as the night lit up with what seemed glowing spheres

from space adding to their fears!

 

Chaos reigned above human noise a deafening cry

that put those fleeing into a frenzy

some fell from the roofs others just lost rationality

all the time he filmed as he ran

tripping over the falling self-preservation his aim

no way in the vicinity could remain!

 

But with a few from the party tried so hard to escape

the army blocked their only route

firing with no hope of success at the swooping thing

huge yet so agile and aggressive pursuit

through the underground managed to leave the scene

then danger that was unforeseen!

 

Thinking it would be safe to go back up on street level

had not account for more of these invaders

as they were picked off one by one the camera rolled

even when knocked unconscious

the others fatally wounded until the breaking of day

their bodies spirited away!

 

He awoke weak unable to move at these aliens mercy

knew there was no chance of rescue

going into shack his soul was nearly ready to depart

the best swooped and he was gone

the video camera fell upon the rubble strewn ground

no longer part of this battleground!

 

It would be sometime before his footage came to light

the young woman survived her nightmare plight!

 

But it would be a long bloody fight to victory!

Glinted!

In the distance something suddenly glinted

even though in a thick forest

the friends wandered amongst dense trees

with a touch of curiosity

their attention was now drawn to that spot

a choice to investigate or not!

 

Interest overwhelmed any thought of danger

as the light became more intense

darting at high-speed low but rising into the sky

changing colours then halting

not far ahead they ran eagerly to find the cause

without even a moment to pause!

 

Then abruptly it hovered and glowed  multicolored

small like a probe they had to feel it

strange writing around the centre warm to touch

no sound emanated from it

at first there was no panic but it became so bright

lit the area like a floodlight!

 

Shooting high above the trees as if tracking them

thinking it was going to strike

tried to find some safe cover but there was none

as they quickly backtracked

from nowhere soldiers were rapidly approaching

on their freedom encroaching!

 

The group was roughly escorted from the area

as helicopters overhead hovered

leaving them baffled at what they had witnessed

at gun point forced into their car

ordered to leave the forest without explanation

happy to leave avoiding confrontation!

 

Eventually from a safe distance could monitor

curiosity overcame apprehension

felt the air around them quiver all eyes raised

saw a huge unidentified craft

over the forest cast a dark portentous obscurity

exposing mans real unsurety!

 

 

Explosions and shells intermingled with beams

similar to lasers as helicopters fell

a small round shape flew up entered the huge ship

then it just vanished from sight

now devastation in the once peaceful woodland

as a strange wind the flames fanned!

 

While they could the friends raced from this place

ominous of what mankind would face!

Never!

Never being on time getting up ever later

the excuse today to cold

eventually his partner placed cold feet

on his back he soon got up

realising it was later now he had to rush

leaving the house in a hush.

 

Forgot to put the car in the large garage

was covered in a thick frost

swearing under his breath it was his fault

now he was definitely late

turning the ignition key it would not start

then an explosion blew it apart!

 

From her slumber the wife abruptly roused

into a nightmare of reality

glass flying across the large front bedroom

their two children crying

not understanding what caused the havoc

sadly there was no turning back!

 

Struggling to stand her feet cut and bleeding

glanced out acrid smoke rose

she saw the flames and burning wrecked car

but had to be with the children

holding back the tears she knew he was dead

glanced at the double bed!

 

In their room the children cowered bewildered

running up to their mother

almost knocking her to the ground gripping tight

there they stayed for some time

then the expected knock on the door she knew

for Josh nothing could they do!

 

Her husband had been a soldier only a year before

the army and civilian police

were investigating who could have been involved

but their lives had to continue

they could not stay in that house not safe any more

the memories forever raw!
