I'm Ready!

I heard the ship right outside the door. The engine made a ferocious roar. I ran outside to make sure that enemies were not in the mist. So I grabbed my ultimate weapon made out of recycled materials that fly and went right to it. “I’m here to protect my home front!” I yelled. When I looked around it was silent and no one was there. The ship outside just hovered on my private property five feet above ground. I turned around and said.. “Quick kids, take cover! There is an enemy in the mist.” My oldest looked at me with his worried baby blue eyes and said “Mom, be careful or they could zap you in a flash.” I looked at him and told him to get Andy McNab. Well, he isn’t really Andy McNab. He acts like him and loves guns, so I guess it is better to have someone like him around instead of a weak little computer nerd. “I’m ready for anything I yelled!” Afterall we do have weapons! Lots of them! (wink)

Then out of the blue I saw her with her bright orange space clothes and her evil eyes. She circled around my spaceship and crunched her nose. I said to her “You are on private property!” Then I heard something and backed up right away. Andy McNab was covering my back as the kids ran around to block the ship. “She is ours now,” I said with the confidence of a woman that used to be a cop. She knew she was corned so she proceeded to threaten me. “I’m calling the government” she said and she walked off the property with her float phone in hand. The kids started to panic. My son yelled the word “government” with extreme stress. He thought of the movie "Transformers" not a cop show. Then he looked at me and said “Mom, are they going to take you away?” I said “Ofcourse not, I will call the space police!” Just then Andy McNab blocked the enemies space ship on private property with double engine disc shuttle so that she can not get away. After about 10 minutes, three space patrol officers showed up in their black and white space ships with red space lights and came directly to me to ask questions.

During this time, my son in a panic said "this is really freaking me out, can I play a computer game?" I said “Yes, go and focus your mind on killing enemies without real guns” and he was off and back in the house safely. Mission accomplished. My little one followed so I decided I was ok with computer games this afternoon. How many brain cells can they lose today anyway? I centered my mind on the enemy down the street and the officers in the tight uniforms with all of their metal. I thought to myself, are these Cyborgs posing as law enforcement officers? I couldn’t be so sure. I had been tricked many times before. Andy McNab proceeded to get a bit angry (nothing new). He decided to tell his story from his point of view. One officer kept staring at me like I was a nice cold beer and the others were listening quietly. Just then another enemy vehicle drove in front of property with government writing on it. I knew we had covered our tracks with security cameras in front of house. Needed to make sure space officers heard our story for the record. These space wars were getting nasty. I kept thinking of the constitution that was in place way before these space attacks!

After the questioning I went to the enemies ship and took zapper chains off of it so she was free to go. She never told us who she was or why she was there or showed any sort of proof of identity. She just decided to threaten us. I gave her a look of “you better watch your back.” She rushed into her ship and revved up the engine. Andy McNab proceeded to throw a camera hook to her view shield to grab a photo of said enemy. Camera hook then automatically flew back to computer belt. THERE! We had her now. She has no idea where the pictures can end up since she parked her ship on private property and did not disclose who she is. We also have her license plate! Working for the government is not enough. She never even came to the door. She is part of the new government circus. People who spy on their neighbors and get paid extra money to ask questions. Private questions.

They will never win! I will be ready for when they return.

      Andy McGab? Tell him to shut up!

      "my ultimate weapon made out of recycled materials that fly and went right to it." - you have a space age dildo?!

      Oh I see Andy McGab is the dildo! Real Roboman!

      If you were an ice cold sav blanc - and barefoot - maybe I would stare! If your just a cold beer then you are selling yourself short! Or maybe he fantasised about you being cheap! Not the kinda guy you want lusting after a classy lady really! Coulda been worse - he coulda looked at you like you were a donut!

      Hey... my battery went flat! Left you hangin... anyone got a spare biro? My ink splurted out on the page again!

      I have not read these kind of works before.

      But the names such as Andy McNab are really new for me and I feel that you are writing a new version of Transformers if my guess goes right.

      Thanks for sharing
