Jessica and Brittany could do nothing but stare in disbelief as Bobbys' car catches the tractor beam. Up he went into the space ship disappearing from sight. The other car stops just in the nick of time before he too is caught up in the light.
Meanwhile Brittany took out the rocket launcher she always kept in her car trunk and aimed it at the UFO thinking that she could kill Bobby and destroy the aliens together and become the hero who saved planet earth.
Knocked to the ground, she sat silently as coherent thought eluded her. Ringing in her ears was accompanied by the refrain from an obscure Manfred Mann song her mother used to sing on neighborhood karaoke nights.
"He had alien eyes, big and round, Blinking lights above the ground. Flying high, here then gone... Away from her, for oh too long..". She scribbled out a poem on a scrap of paper she found in her purse...
The alien's eyes grew wider with a deep blue florescence glowing deeply. The alien then started humming the notes to "Love me Tender", then put the poem to the tune. All three women started to sway uncontrollably. Steve McQueen yelled, "Stop him, they are being hypnotized."
Steve's eyes stared into the alien's wide-eyed glare as if he was being pulled in by its piercing gaze. "That song! Why is it singing that song?" Steve's mouth opened slightly. "No way, it can't be. It's not possible!" Steve McQueen stood frozen in disbelief of what he just saw with his own wide-eyes.
Confused by the strange and obviously inferior natures of these two humanoids, the aliens looked sternly at them and spoke: "You can come on board to observe our model from the future, if you can find two others to bring along who are more qualified specimens, ah hem.... individuals."
Steve snapped out of his confusion with sudden clarity. He screamed "No, NO, don't listen to them they are trying to steal the 100th anniversary Corvette and they are coercing able mechanics to go back to their planet to maintain their collection of Corvettes!" He pleaded, "Don't you remember the movie about 'How to serve mankind', it was a cookbook."
No longer concerned for her personal health or safety, she closed her eyes deciding internally that whatever the cost she would be the first human,(besides Steve McQueen), to see and handle the 2054 ice blue corvette.
"Well, we wanted more than one, but one will do...for now. We'll go back...in time." She would never forget the laughter that followed... their high pitched giggles and inward/ outward breaths escaping from creepy toothless grins. She was too scared to even cry, yet somehow, she still remained determined...
Suddenly something caught her attention... a figure in the corner in the dark.... The aliens left the room through star trek like doors. She stared at the figure who emerged as soon as the aliens glided out of the room... It was Steve!
He held up a finger to his lips and said, "shhh..." But, she burst out " What? We cannot keep you a secret!" And then, in burst the Alien Captain. I see we actually have two specimens...I mean individuals!
"Where are we going?" Asked Steve. Brittany couldn't believe they were stuck on an alien spacecraft going who knows where. And who were these strange looking beings who could somehow communicate with them... in English?
"Tell us about Altair!" demanded Brittany. How will we get there and long will it take? Will we ever get back to earth? Steve was looking around to see if he could see the 2054 Corvette. "Where's the ice blue Corvette?" he asked.
Captain Orion called all fellow aliens, who were not on post manning the ship, to gather around and hear the story of their great planet, Altair. Of course, it was a one world government planet, socialistic and ruled by evil dictators who lived to control the inhabitants.
Steve and Brittany listened to Captain Orion describe Altair. Marriage had been banned about a century ago. All alien children were given over as wards of the state when they were seven years of age. They were put into schools according to the dictates of the mother. After that, she would no longer know her offspring. Offspring that were not wanted or were deformed were drowned quietly and secretly by their mothers as soon as they were born. Brittany was horrified.
"Where did you develop your ability to speak English?" Brittany inquired. "In school, during my youth," Captain Orion explained. My mother wanted me to be a verbal information relayer and I was enrolled into the Interstellar Communication Division. I know the languages of many different planets. " "And who teaches these languages?" "Other captured aliens like yourselves." "I assume you plan for us to teach English in the "Interstellar Communication Division" on Altair?" Steve asked astutely. And any other Earth language you know, of course. Brittany gulped hard.
"On Altair, we do not believe in anything we cannot prove. " Captain Orion continued. "Such as God?" Brittany asked. "Precisely. " "You do not have religious holidays?" "What are those?" "Vacations?" "No." Free time? "No."
"Do you read books in your spare time?" she continued. "No. We only use computers." Brittany looked at the group of cold and impersonal aliens. She and Steve had to get out of there and get back to earth.
Shortly thereafter, Steve figured out how to operate the flying Corvette. One night Steve and Brittany climbed into the ice blue 2054 Anniversary Model, opened the hatch and launched the flying car into space. Luckily they had been orbiting only 100 miles above the earth. So, they flew to earth and landed in a cornfield in Nebraska, where they abandoned the Corvette. They walked to Omaha and took a Greyhound bus back to Hollywood. They never spoke of the 2054 ice blue Corvette or their trip to space in a UFO with very peculiar aliens... ever again. The End
Let's have fun writing a story everyone and see how far it get's. On Your Mark, Let's Go..While I was asleep in the room last night, I was awakened by a strange noise that sounded like a weak moan or if someone was in...
