So I have mutants, I have werewolves, and now aliens?!

What is with me? But yeah, I just was hit with a pure stroke of inspiration. You'll see what it's about soon, but first let me see how you guys like the prologue.


A woman wiped her hands on her apron, and went to answer the door.
            “My, someone at this hour?” she muttered to herself, glancing at the clock which read 10:15pm on the dot. Faintly, she wondered why a person said ‘on the dot’ when there really was no such thing on a clock as she opened the door.
            A man with striking silver hair stood in the doorway. The woman was struck with how oddly beautiful he look, it was almost unearthly. The only thing that was off about him was his eyes. They were purple, blue, green, white, and pink, all rolled into one. It was like he was holding some strange planet inside his eyes.
            “Hello,” his voice was luring and luxurious, and the woman was instantly mesmerized, “I am your relative, and you are about to let me in, no?” The woman stepped aside automatically.
            “Yes, yes, relative, yes, come in,” she gabbed in a slight monotone, nodding. The man smiled and stepped over the threshold. In the back of her mind, the woman longed for more of this beautiful man’s wonderful voice, but she waited patiently for more orders.
            “I have known you for all my life, and yet this is the first time you have seen me,” the man sighed, “so sad.”
            “Yes, all my life. So sad,” she repeated. There was a thumping from the stairs, and her child appeared over the banister.
            “Hey mom, who’s this?” he asked.
            “This is our long-lost relative…” she trailed off, blinking. Had he told her his name?
            “Joe,” the man turned to the child, smiling. “Ah, you, my boy, are amazed at this new man, but you know your mother would never let anyone bad in the house.” The boy’s eyes glazed over, and he nodded just like his mother had and was.
            The man smiled. This was going well. He whispered a faint word, but a creature huddled within the walls of the house heard it and would later run to the only human it knew to protect the Earth.

Hmmm, let's see if you guys guess is the plot.

Ps, I haven't forgotten about Ice Crystals! Just haven't gotten to it... :D

OOOH, aliens.

I love SF stories. And I think I can tell what's going to happen, but it's just a theory . . .

Icewolf said...

I would love to hear your theory! I wonder if anyone could guess at this point, but go ahead.

The Golden Eagle said...

Well, obviously this . . . person-like alien is hypnotic in some way. If all of the aliens have power like this over humans, then they could change humans entirely.

I'm guessing that he's here to start a full-fledged alien takeover of Earth and its inhabitants, since the aliens want it for their own home.

I am also theorizing that the person the creature went to is bent on stopping this invasion.

Am I right at all?

Pretty dang close!
